An inspirational walking tour with Japan’s Denim 'Kami' (god) !
Working vintage jeans I discovered a lot of misinformation online,
I knew it was wrong, so I wanted to create a well-researched informative book
- Yutaka, on his Levis collaboration collector’s book

What is it?
Yutaka is the man behind iconic Harajuku vintage and denim store BerBerJin. Hollywood celebrities, musicians, designers and denim hunters with an eye for the elusive make the pilgrimage to his store whenever they're in Japan.
His role in the international denim scene could be likened to somewhere between an art collector, carefully inspecting and valuing pieces us regular folk have no way of deciphering, and an archaeologist digging deep to document and share priceless long-forgotten denim relics bringing them back to life for the greater good.
Enjoy your walk with Yutaka, one of Taro’s close-knit collaborators -- a TAROjin, and a storyteller who will enlighten you with his dedication to vintage denim, and connect you to the ura-hara culture.
Meet Yutaka at BerBerJin in ura-hara backstreets of Harajuku.
You will start with an exclusive viewing of the latest rare collection at BerBerJin, followed by a visit to other top legendary vintage stores; where you will get a chance to meet its owners / buyers and hear their stories and inspirations behind their favorite collector’s item.
