Japone Panic 2: Assembling Japanese Sub-Culture, at the Design Festa GalleryJune 20, 2011
This week, June 19-25, the Design Festa Gallery is hosting Japone Panic 2: Assembling Japanese Sub-Culture, a new collection of young artists that explore some of the underground movements that have been developing in Japan.

Although the gallery is tucked away into one of Harajuku’s many side streets, once you find it, there’s no mistaking it:

Entrance is free and the gallery also hosts a very nice bar and cafe with outdoor seating, making this a great place to stop by as you explore one of Tokyo’s more offbeat neighborhoods.
And on an unrelated note, today (June 19), marks 16 years since I came to Japan.
