ACAPULCO GOLD IN TOKYO, JAPAN

Acapulco Gold News
April 19, 2012

It's been 4 long years since Acapulco Gold stepped foot in the land of the rising sun and it was like we never left. After the Tsunami of 3/11 things have definitely changed, yet Tokyo is still one of the most inspiring cities in the world. Throughout the week we met great people, ate great food, and generally burned a hole in our pocket book.  A definite highlight of the trip included watching people hurl their lunches on the streets in celebration of cherry blossom season which takes on a spring break type atmosphere as companies arrange office outings to sit under the trees and get wasted all day long.  The And Sons "Sons of Silence" event featuring custom painted skulls by many renowned artists was dope and shout out goes to NY native Bluster who put together the event along with the big man and And Sons JP rep Shinsan.  

Our boys at A1/Goodgame/Masterpiece Sounds crew showed us what hospitality really is, and peace goes out to Magachin, Rintaro, and our main man Afra the Human Beatbox.  Respect also goes out to JD, Boochan, Miyoshi, and DJ Safari for being down for AG.  We'll be back in the Fall to continue solidifying AG's presence in JP. So for now, enjoy the photos.
