I was bored today before Bape opened so I made a video of the stores around here that you'd all be interested in.

This is Bounty Hunter (left) and Neighborhood, walking South towards Apee. Daily Yamazaki on your right, where everyone gets drinks after they queue for Bape.

This is Bounty Hunter and Neighborhood walking North towards Bape. On the left you'll see Revolver (very secretive store), Hysteric Glamour (the most intricate store design I've ever seen), and And A (female favored clothing and art store, awesome "all red" store front is extremely eye-catching).

This is starting from the intersection of Bape and Orange St, walking further North towards the interesection of Orange and some street I always forget the name for. You'll bypass X-Large on your right (with the cute employee rocking the purple/green Mad Hectic Full-print hoodie)

This is from the beginning of Orange St and anonymous St walking West, ending at Invisible Store (Futura Laboratories/Maharishi retailer). You'll bypass ABC Mart (GR Nikes and tons more sneaker shop), Evisu Light, Mash/Up (Misc. hip-hop fashion), Supreme, Recon/Masterpiece/Hectic, cute girl rockin crazy multicolor shoes (no pervert), and finishing at Invisible Store.

Great stuff for people who have never traveled to these places. I've only been to BWS NYC but all of the Bape stores seem to be in fairly clean similar SOHO looking areas. Thanks again!

It was early in the morning before the queue gathered, around 10am (the queue appears right before the ticketbox arrives, no one camps overnight for Bape anymore, it doesn't make sense).

And what do you mean why was I walking? Cuz I was making a video of the area for you...
DUH. =)
