Turntable Filmsalthough it seems customary in Japan to give gifts, and often handkerchiefs seem to be the gift to give, the band Turntable Films in Kyoto, were somewhat confused by my gift giving, although they came around to it…..i am a crazy foreigner…



this is the Portland of Japan….the San Francisco, the Austin even…..young, vibrant, hip….but small in scale next to the super cities like Osaka and Tokyo….perhaps i will buy a black leather jacket?
