Tokyo - City Guide for Freerunners

Tokyo baby! This mega-city contains 14 million people, 2800 temples and a public transport system that looks like a spider-web on steroids. To help you navigate this madness and find some solid Parkour spots we've put together this kawaii guide. We are leaving out most tourist destinations, since there are plenty general travel guides out there already. However we put together some tourist + training combos whenever a Parkour spot is close to a cultural site or dope ass Ramen-shop.   General Tips Rooftops: We're not including any in this guide, but just wanted to let you know that the police can be extremely strict in Japan. You have been warned. Passport: As a tourist in Japan you must ALWAYS carry your passport on you. If not, you can be detained or fined up to 200k Yen (roughly $1700).Getting around: Tokyo's transport system can be pretty confusing at first, but you'll get the hang of it quickly. In our experience it's worth it buying a local sim-card with data at the airport. With internet you can use Google Maps to tell you exactly which trains to jump on. Super easy.We recommend getting a "Pasmo" card, even if you're just in town for a short time. You can charge money onto your Pasmo and conveniently ride all local trains, without having to constantly buy tickets.    Mission Tokyo Mission Tokyo opened it's doors in 2018 and is the main Parkour Gym in Tokyo. It's run by the Vaults101 crew, with most of them living next door. This makes it the perfect place for training (surprise) and to connect with the local Parkour community. It's slightly outside of town, but worth it.  If you don't know any local Freerunners, stop here first and find out what's happening. You find their opening schedule here.   Komazawa Olympic Park  Tokyo has plenty of public parks with lots of spots inside. One of the more popular is Komazawa, which is especially good for larger jams. Around the large park you will find lots of walls, some bars and decent playground spots. The vibe is super chill and especially on summer weekends there are tons of people out and about. Locals spend their time jogging, playing basketball, badminton, playing and eating ice-cream. Excuse the lack of photos, but there are plenty of small spots scattered around the park.     Shimo-Kitazawa and Hanegi Park Shimo-Kitazawa is my favorite neighbourhood in Tokyo. Even though it's located just one stop from the bustling Shibuya Crossing, Shimo-Kitazawa is totally laid back. Along it's many small streets you will find dozens of well selected vintage-shops in between artisan coffee shops. I recommend The Usual for coffee, lunch and seriously fast WiFi. Kuwajima makes the best Ramen I've had in my life (and I've had a lot). Mother is an unreal cave-like bar and with great cocktails and we always get the Nachos. The best dinner spot is Gravy Gyoza. Their dumplings are the BOMB and the sweat & sour soup is ooishi as fuck. Perfect to go with a few people and share. Oh right, this was a Parkour guide...I almost forgot to tell you. Hanegi Park is twenty minute walk from Shimo-Kitazawa and inside you will find a massive labyrinth. Built as a child's playground it's actually an incredible spot! Check the video below for an overview:     I recommend hitting up The Usual in the morning for coffee, then go vintage-shopping, fill up on some Ramen for lunch and then head over to Hanegi Park for a session. After some good jumps head to Gravy Gyoza and order the entire menu. That's a perfect day in my book.      Sumida River Bonanza - Ryogoku, Asahi and Asakusa If you want to pack a bunch of good stuff into one day I recommend Sumida River.Jump off the train at Ryogoku Station and you will be right next to the world's oldest Sumo Wrestling stadium. This area is still the center of Sumo and you will see plenty of Wrestlers in traditional outfits going about their daily business. From the train station it's a 2minute walk to Sumida River and that's where you will find the first Parkout spot. An awesome staircase surrounded by interesting ledges. Once you warmed up you want to walk north along the river towards the Asahi headquarters. Stick by the water and you will discover a nice variety of spots. As a bonus they are mostly under a roof, so you could also train here in the rain. At the very end you will discover a playground with some swing-sets and a sandpit. When you reach this point you might have enough training for a day and happen to be in a perfect place for some generic tourist stuff. Across the street you will see the Asahi headquarters consistent of two buildings, one with a giant golden poop on the roof and another resembling a giant glass of beer. If you enjoy a good beer, you can take the elevator up to the top floor of the beer-glass shaped tower and sit down on their viewing platform. They serve beer and snacks. It's a really good spot to take family and makes for some good time-lapse shots as well. Intoxicated or not you can now stroll across Azuma bridge into the Asakusa neighbourhood towards the Kaminarimon Gate. This gate is usually surrounded by tourists wielding selfie sticks and leads you into Nakamise shopping street. This street is perfect for all kinds of traditional souvenirs. There's also plenty of snacks and restaurants around. Finally the street will end at Senso-ji. Tokyo's oldest temple. While I'm not big on temples myself, it's nice to check at least one out and this one is pretty huge. This is basically a vlog of exactly that day:

Winter 18 - Collection

Our Winter 18 release is a bunch of favourite items, we've been wanting to make forever. Well, forever is finally over and here they are.   Shooting these photos on a November weekend in Germany, the new Hoodies were a clear favourite. Dom was injured, after flipping 25 stairs in Lyon, and couldn't do any jumps (terrible excuse, we know).  Valtteri was going hard, soaking in every bit of sun, knowing it would be much colder back home in Finland. Jason was stoked to show everybody in his home town.   There's lots to talk about, when it comes to the different designs. The Hoodie is a real favourite and the images speak for themselves.   Our new stretch Jeans are a little harder to spot. Mainly Zen's brain-child he was inspired by the classic Harem Pants cut in the design process. When picking out the fabric we wanted it to be tough, but super flexible.   You'll probably noticed the Farang shoe showing up in the photos. It's almost ready and we hope to bring it to you soon. Once the time comes, we'll talk about it in detail. Of course, we didn't want you to have cold feet until then, so the first Farang socks ever are available now.   That's all for now, thanks for your support! Check out the Lookbook video to see the gear in motion. Keep moving.

Bare Essentials - Erica Madrid - Nude Parkour in Bangkok

‘Even though Parkour is a new sport, it really is the most classic of all sports.’ My friend Frosti Zernow said during an interview once, talking about how Parkour goes back to natural movement with no assisting tools. What he said resonated with me, and sums up where the idea for Nude Parkour came from, even though he said it after I shot my first nude series with Tim Shieff. When my friend Erica, born and raised in Colorado, visited Bangkok, I asked her if she was down to explore the rooftops above the city’s crowded alleys. Spontaneously she said yes, and we leaped into a day of ridiculous urban streaking.  The next morning on the roof of my apartment building. The sun has just started to peak above the horizon and Erica is looking great. Unfazed by the heights, she moves graciously around the rooftop, and while it’s obvious that she isn’t wearing any clothes it never feels as if she is naked, just comfortable.    Twenty-five floors above street level, we are shooting right next to a main intersection, and it would be easy for people to spot her balancing close to the ledge. We know people rarely look up from their mobile phones, or, in Bangkok’s case, the many delicious foods offered from street stalls at breakfast time.    Done with the roof, we treat ourselves to some street food and jump in a cab headed towards the next location, an abandoned 30-story high-rise. The outside is boarded up, and after sneaking around we jump the fence, just to be caught by security on the other side. He is not a man in uniform with a mustache, but a hysteric middle-aged woman and her shirtless boyfriend drinking a Chang. Both live in a make-shift hut on the ground floor, and while the boyfriend clearly doesn’t care, she won’t stop talking while pointing us to the exit, resistant to my bribery.  We refuse to leave, so she decides to get her boss, and walks off and leaves us with her boyfriend. Sensing that we might have a chance I inform him that we’ll follow her, to which he just shrugs. As soon as we stroll around the corner, out of his sight, we pick up pace and dart up the first staircase, knowing that they will be too lazy to ascend 30-stories to kick us out. We made it!      The rooftop is breathtaking! A huge metal structure sits on the building like a rusty crown for us to play on. Erica starts exploring the environment while I’m looking for a shot. Impressed by Erica’s bravery and control I decide to ask her for a shot I’ve had in the back of my head, prepared that she will call me crazy.      I walk her up to the frontside of the building, where part of the metal crown has broken off and fallen back onto the rooftop. I turn around and ask her, knowing that losing her balance would mean sure death, ‘Do you think you could lean out onto the beam?’  Erica looks at me and then leans over the edge, inspects the beam closely, places her palms on it to get an idea of how it would feel. She turns back around. I’m ready for a ‘No, absolutely not,’ but Erica says ‘I think I could hang off of it, do you think that would look good?’     Model - Erica Nicole Madrid - @erica_n_madrid -  ericamadrid.com - YoutubePhotos - Jason Paul - @thejasonpaul
