90's, my way of - 3

I started to watch Cult movies since 90s.
In the era, I was in Tokyo, tiny theatres were screening cult movies(old to new) in the late shows.
I am not sure still they are running those shows, I guess a few theatres keep those events.

90's, my way of - 2

In 90's, I liked to find small boutiques and stores, specially indies designers clothing were interesting.
Popular fashion scenes were interesting but sort of boring.Because new ideas were dead, designs were based on "revival" in the era. Neo-hippie,neo-mods,neo-punk..

So returning the subject, the indies clothing boutiques were exciting place for me.
They were mostly in small apartments or unique places, some were hard to find.
Clothing were still following the trend from the big wave but they were edgy and inspiring, people at the place were also neat.
I often walked from Daikan-yama, Ebis, Shibuya, Harajuku to find and look at those stores.

90s, my way of - 1

I like 90's music, because I have a lot of exciting memories in the years, I was discovering myself, I can remember the memories with the songs.
Even the music were a bit cheesy and feeling passed now, still I love to listen.

In 90s, I was hanging out at stores I was interested in, going to night clubs and making interesting friends, finding new world in the city,Tokyo.

Specially in early to mid 90's, club scene in Japan was almost popular but still some places were in underground and I loved to go to the underground ones.
The people came to the club were interested in subculture, fashion and of course, they love music.
I was inspired by those friends at the time, still now they are good friends.
