Be Who You Are – Skateboarding in Japan

With the Olympics taking centre stage this summer, we decided to look where others might not and dig a little deeper into finding the people that define the sub cultures of Surf and Skate in Japan.

Enter the second chapter in our Be Who You Are partnership with Oakley.

Produced by us, sadly not on location in Japan as due to the joys of Covid we couldn’t actually get there. But made with a crew of amazing friends on the ground in Japan. We hope you enjoy our little dive into the subculture of Japanese skateboarding.

Featuring  VHSMAG editor Masafumi Kajitani, FESN founder and legendary skateboarder/filmmaker Takahiro Morita, photographers Nobuo Iseki and Atiba Jefferson, WTAPS founder Tetsu Nishiyama and KP Tokyo‘s Tsuyoshi Uchida.
