Shimokitazawa station recently underwent an extensive renewal. Taking inspiration from the town of Shimokitazawa, we designed a “Tetchan” Yakitori Bar in the new station.
We scattered around parts of old neon signs collected from Berlin’s Arkonaplatz flea market in order to create a ‘junky’ Yakitori bar, an image typical of ‘Shimokita’. Now the neon signs flash among the swarm of casual pubs in this town.
