Tokyo Street Week Long Birthday Bash

Tokyo Street in Pavilion KL kick started its 1st birthday bash with week long treats that is guaranteed to thrill all J fans. Hatsu Tanjo 初誕生 or First Birthday celebrations for this only Japanese-themed retail precinct in Southeast Asia will last for an entire week from today till 29 July 2012.
And last night I joined the many J fans and community as Tokyo Street celebrated its first anniversary in a roaring style by Wadaiko Syo followed by the traditional breaking of a sake barrel. The highlight of the night was of course Miyavi!

Miyavi swooned us with his performance
Having seen and followed Miyavi quite a bit, seeing him in person and technically sitting smack behind him during the celebrations was simply amazing! Here's more of his pics and one of my fave tracks by this uber talented cutie!

Without the sunnies and check out the tattoos:D
Miyavi What's My Name
(does he remind you of Jimi Hendrix?
