Recently, I have devoted an unusually large amount of time and energy to doing reconnaissance for an upcoming trip to Japan. I am really looking forward to my purely consumer, non-work related adventure to Tokyo where I will be on the look out for all sorts of cool American (or American inspired) stuff.
While doing said research I came across a neat Japanese store called Gospel Brunch (natch!), which offers a cool mix of vintage and new products. Some of my favorites are pictured below. If any of you have suggestions or must-see Tokyo destinations (I already have a pretty good lay of the land, so no need to tip me off to United Arrows, etc.), please send a note to mw [at] acontinuouslean.com or drop your suggestions in the comments section below.
