Last night when we stumbled upon the J Pop fest in J Town, it was all tied into the grand opening of New People. Due to us arriving late we were unable to have a nosey around the new store.
So this evening we decided to head down and check it out. We ended up walking through the ghetto part of town where I am sure its all about the 1st and 15th.
Arriving in J Town we headed down to New People. And a phenomenal store it is. It is billed as [checks website] an entertainment shopping centre. Downstairs is a small HD theatre where they will be airing the latest and greatest from japan. The following 2 floors are dedicated to the toys/fashion and anything to do with japanese pop culture. The clothing is a cosplay lovers dream!
On the top floor sits a gallery. This left me and Sian longing for a house big enough to even display some of the pop art on display. The work by Yoshitaka Amano of Final Fantasy fame was truly brilliant. If I had the money and space I would of definitely made a few purchases.
You can check out the store at http://www.newpeopleworld.com/
After J Town it was time to grab some food. This turned into the worst meal of the trip. With our favorite places closed for sunday we headed to the closest joint to the hotel. MISTAKE we actually saw him microwave our meals!
Tomorrow is Alcatraz time so hopefully we will be able to trap Sian in a cell
