On a spontaneous-ish trip to Japan, where I was staying with (and pretty much following around) my good friend Liu Puli, we ended up in his home town of Osaka around the time of Halloween. Out on the weekend, we met up with some of his friends and skated the streets, eventually making our way towards Triangle Park, a famous landmark for young folk to hang out, drink and sometimes skateboard.

Things were getting too much a bit too fast, so it was off to the FamilyMart for some drinks

Things outside were a blur, but luckily I already had a few to drink, so my camera managed to get a few good memorable moments

After walking past overflowing bins and trash on the floor, people began to realise there was fun to be had by our stack of skateboards nearby
