Scott recently returned from Japan, and we caught up with him to find out some of his favorite places to eat, shop, and discover. Check out our Q&A and the images of Hikari that Scott captured while visiting Japan.
What was the most fun experience you had in Japan? I loved everything about Japan, from the fashion, to the music to the food! Its such a different culture it reminds me of a different universe but I can say I’m obsessed with it after being there recently.
Favorite foods and or restaurants in Tokyo? I had this amazing cheese ramen! (I know it sounds odd) but it was incredible and I also went to an all tempura restaurant too which was great, the fish market was a pretty incredible sight and experience to do too
How did you meet the Model? Why did you shoot her? Hikari and I met at a dinner for Michael Kors, she is one the most beautiful, coolest models I have met and also super well known in Japan, her fans were running up to us to have photos with us every minute…
Any tips on shopping in Tokyo? Believe it or not I found myself going to Ron Herman a great LA store in Tokyo, it rocks! Also Tokyu Hands this amazing store filled with things that are everything and anything cool and Japanese
We heard you rode the bullet train? What was that like? Who were you with? I went with my girlfriend Erin to ride the bullet train to Kyotto, it was awesome and it takes like 2 hours and you feel like youre yet again in another country, good stuff!
