On Hollywood Road

Moustache in Naka-Meguro

Posted in Uncategorized by Alex Daye on July 10, 2012

After lots of planning and many late nights at the shop preparing, we have finally arrived at Midori.so for our first overseas salon, and we couldn’t be prouder and more thankful for all the folks who have helped make this happen for us! We took some photos throughout the day as we finished painting the walls, hanging and pressing the suits, sewing in buttons and labels and all the other final touches, all under the brilliant sun of a real Tokyo summer day. For all that can’t join us here, a glimpse at the little home away from home we’ve tried to create; for all those that can join us, please do- we’re open for business!

The beautiful little creative hive that is Midori.so. In addition to the site of our salon, Midori.so is the home of Mediasurf, the company behind the Ayoyama Farmer’s Market, and also lots of other creative entrepreneurs. It’s a very inspiring place to be doing business.

Entrance way to Midori.so, a lovely old apartment building rescued back from the elements, giving it the not unpleasant sense of being a little bit haunted.
