You may not know 25th Street…but you should.

You may not know that Elvis got off the train here to greet local high school girls on his way east or maybe west for his military service. You may not know that Ice Cube played a concert in the street a few months back. You may not know that 25th Street is mentioned in On The Road by Jack Kerouac. You may not know that every great blues player in the last 30 years has played the local clubs on their way from here to there. You may not know that many, many movies have been filmed on the street. Or that many TV programs are filmed on this street. You may not know that there is an artsy movie theater there, a skate shop, bike shop, multiple art galleries and eateries. You may not know that this is the crossroads of the west. You may not know about the many coffee shops, salons, bars, and train station that fill this street.

You may not know about any of these but you should! This street has been a happening place for over 100 years. It’s a railroad town and you can always find anything you ever wanted…good or bad, on this street. The place has been wild forever and the history of the street is endless and there is much more to come. You may not know this street but now (through this article) you know that you should.

    LomoLocations: Tokyo, Japan

    Common advice tells us that Tokyo is best experienced at night. The neon lights of Ginza come on, Shibuya Crossing gets crammed, Ropponggi lets loose. Reverse the advice and we’ll get something like a palate cleanser. The Imperial Palace, Shinjuku Gyoen and small parks peppered around the city offer relief, from morning until late afternoon. Even ordinary streets appeal to tourists. We suspect those secret ramen spots add to the charm.
