We stumbled upon Common Sage last weekend and were thrilled to find a new Japanese market in our neighborhood! Common Sage’s chef, Koji Nagao, is originally from Osaka, Japan. Koji is a chef and artist. He studied culinary arts in Europe and completed a BFA from the San Francisco Academy of Art University in 2011.
We were recently lucky enough to steal some time with our good friends Jake and Hannah Weidmann to show off a few of our favorite spaces in the city. During the latest Apple keynote, we found out our friend Jake was secretly working with Apple to create a calligraphy piece on the new iPad Pro
The Uniqlo flagship store is located in Tokyo’s luxury shopping district, Ginza. It’s an 11-story building. The floors are filled with stylish, basic men’s and women’s wear. Here you’ll find jeans, flannels, stripped tops, dresses, and underwear (I’m a fan of their AIRism bra camis. They’re much more comfortable than regular bras!).
You can be clad head to toe
