Located inside of a commercial building in Harajuku, this project is the first collaboration with Ichiro Tezuka since “Yakitori Tecchan” of Kichijoji’s Hamonica Yokocho.
By scattering fragments of logotype signboards collected by Mr. Tezuka, we took the street-like spatiality of recycling “trash” that we have been pursuing in “Tecchan” one step further.
This is an attempt to revive Harajuku’s original underground character to the latest Harajuku location.
