W+K Tokyo

Kenji & Kuro

Kenji Tanaka and his dog Kuro have literally been camping out at W+K Tokyo’s office for the last few weeks. Kenji’s been producing a Nike video for us, and rather than traveling back and forth to his mountaintop in Chiba every day, or trying to find a Tokyo hotel that accepts pooches, he decided to just move in for awhile. Why not? Way to save on the production budget. Sadly, they leave tomorrow. It’s been great having you Kenji — thanks for the awesome video! You, Kuro and the RV are welcome back any time (although the neighborhood cats may disagree.)

Hanami 2010

W+K Tokyo celebrated hanami on Friday night under cloudy and chilly skies at Nogizaka. The party committee arrived early to reserve our traditional spot under what must be a 150-year-old cherry tree.
