Show all
A bit of a trickier store to locate for first timers, as the entrance is not on the main road and is accessed beyond a car park. The exterior of the building looks to be straight out of a B horror movie, with its vintage suburban style and broken tv set and clown head marking the entrance.

Founded in 2006, N. Hoolywood is the vision of designer Daisuke Obana. Obana, originally a buyer for vintage clothing, developed an obsession with classic American fashion, eventually developing its influence into the brand today.

One of the best smelling stores in Tokyo, the store is comprised of two storeys, with the mainline collection on the first floor and the "Compile" and "Under Summit" diffusion lines on the second floor, if you're feeling confident enough to brave the narrow spiral staircase in the middle of the showroom.


What is Bitmaps?

Bitmaps is a website designed to document noteworthy locations around the globe through a wiki-style format. The concept is to serve as an online guidebook that can be updated on-the-fly and whose goal is to share niche content by subject matter experts across different areas of interest. There is no rating system: every location that appears on the map is deemed worthwhile to visit by the contributor community - it could be end up being the highlight of your next trip or a hidden gem just around the corner.

As content updates are controlled in an open format, creation and editing of the data is limited to contributor members. All users, however, are able to browse the entire catalog of content, apply tags and upload images of locations and even create custom maps to which their own notes can be added and then shared.

How can I contribute?

The ability to create and edit content is limited to users with Contributor accounts, which will be provisioned through a referral system. Ability to contribute may be opened to all users in the future, however in order to control content quality for the time being, membership is currently closed.
