    I was gonna buy the City sounds of Shibuya or something like that off of Amazon.com I used to live in Japan and my favorite city was Shibuya. It had the most vinyl or records shops in one area. So many different types of music but Hip Hop was so big out there. I'm talking bout breaking, Graph, DJing, Fashion and Emceein! I am okay at Japanese but I was never advanced enough to understand a lot of there Hip Hop. LOL.

    They used to have this one club called Harlem and every month they would have some of the most famous DJ's around the globe spinning there. Hip Hop, House, Techno, whatever. On New Years Eve was the greatest because they would get big time Hip Hop DJ's to come in and do the party. I remember one year they had so many famous guest DJ's killing the joint. My Japanese chick hated going there all the time because she wanted to hang in Yokohoma and go to the clubs there. LOL. The good old days. But yeah I thought the one on Amazon was okay but not as good as other stuff I've heard Nic do. I will most def check this out and thanks for the drop

    Props, I'll hit you up in the next week or so, I'll think of what I should ask first! I'm interested in moving there in many ways, or Asia in general… but it's very much a 'crossroads' kinda thought that I know will have huge implications on my life, so I wanna think about it before I decide and also upon where I decide to move to.

    No doubt, I think I'm hitting up Taiwan and Canada in the summer, but I'll definitely hit up Japan eventually!

    Japan is a cool spot but I wouldn't say its a great vacation spot unless you are into certain types of things. LOL. I grew to love Japan while I was out there and it helped me grow as a person. I consider there a 2nd home to me and I still have a few friends I keep in touch with out there.
