    Aoyama is one of the most sophisticated areas in the 23 wards of Tokyo.
    Yuya Hasegawa of Brift H, His shoe shine technique is brilliant performance!

    Hasegawa started out as a street side shoeshiner....quite a remarkable story, and of course, Talent!! I read that he is eyeing Hong Kong (or somewhere else in Asia) to open another store.... btw, there are actually no shoebrush acrobatics at the store......only for the video :lol:

    A less charitable viewer (yours truly) might say: "How to ruin a fine pair of shoes!" :D
