Off to Studio 808. This is where I met Eko. Fellas if you are going to Japan and need a hair cut this is the place. Ladies, for the best shampoo job in your life, sit in Ekos chair. His fingers are hypnotic! I was expecting to walk into some stylish salon, decorated according it's Feng Shui with miniature water fountains and bonsai trees, but to the contrary, it was a one room shop with stacks of VIBE and Black Hair mag on the counter. Pictures of Rhianna and Janet plastered to the walls and hip-hop videos were on TV. It felt and looked like I was @ home in South Carolina and I loved it! While I was getting my hair styled, Eko had me translate the a few hip-hop videos. When it comes to my hair, I am simple. Not a lot of fluff and Eko did just that. The "Flying Saucer' Hair Processor freaked me out a bit, but I trusted him. The downside was it took all day, also like a salon back home, but it was worth it.
As expected, Takoyaki wasn't my all time favorite, but it wasn't bad. It was crispy on the outside and the inside was spongy and slimy at the same time, but a glass of Hypnotic topped with Pineapple Juice made it all go down nicely!
and the night ended with us taking a picture!
