The Ghetto Tokyo

The Ghetto Tokyo - a flickr group. "...THE GHETTO located in Shin-Okubo. The side of the building has legal graffiti by QP, EKYS, ZYS and more of Japan's finest. This was once a Love Motel, but has been converted into 7 shops, a gallery, a restaurant and skate park." Also... from PingMag... The Ghetto in Shin-Okubo: A Love For Skate Culture. " encounter Love Hotels, Asian restaurants and loads of shops selling star stickers of Korean singers in this diverse neighbourhood. But you wouldn’t fanthom finding a former Love Hotel turned into a graffiti space with several skater shops and a bar - and a skate ramp in the lobby."
