And so another month flies by at Telephone Towers! We’ve just had some great news, so we’ve been celebrating with lots things like kimchee and ginger beer and maybe even a new tattoo for Rebecca one day – any excuse…

Ch-ch-changes: I think our biggest news this month has be the start of our blog for the brilliant Japanese fashion website Change Fashion! We’re blogging bilingually in both English and Japanese – you can ch-che-check it out here.

Rock On: The ever-wonderful Lisa of IchigoichieLove stepped in as a roving reporter for us here at Tokyo Telephone, and delivered a fantastic fashion report from Fuji Rock festival – take a look her article here, and personal blog here too. (How many rabbits can you spot?)

Onii-kei on a Budget: Samuel explores the world of mens onii-kei fashion, and proves that you can look just as good, for significantly less cash! Some interesting comments raised too…

Ora-Ora Lovers: On a similarly gyaru subject, Rebecca introduces Soul Sister magazine – look out for girly bikers and shaved heads in this first female ora-ora fashion magazine!

Divine Vulgarity: Never say that we’re ones to shy away from a little culture, especially when it’s in the form of stunning gothic ceramic masterpieces by Katsuyo Aoki; a must-see! (Now I’m wondering where to get one for Telephone Towers…)

DIY Couture: A whole fashion collection made of rubber bands and tape? Must be Kasushi Hara!

Mode Gal for Winter: Rebecca looks at both Murua and W by Murua’s latest collections; there’s plenty here to inspire you, and maybe even bring on the autumn a little earlier. Oh, and get your hands on those stripy skirts now, we’re predicting big things!

Watches and Clocks: We just love a bit of DIY, and there’s something inherently tactile about these beautiful handmade watches and accessories – all can be found at Harajuku’s A Story boutique.

Swanning Around: Something on a gentler post from Rebecca, feeling a little nostalgic for cooler weather and walks in the city; see some of the best bits of Inokashira Park.

Links and Sites: We’re always on the look out for interesting and fabulous blogs & sites to add to our phone book – leave us a comment or drop us a line at hello @ if you’d like to be added to our ever-growing list. Content from Tokyo Telephone is also available on flickrtumblr and twitter too – if you like what we do, then feel free to spread the word with our super shiny social media links at the bottom of each article.
