#FLICKR_TAG=japantourkyoto#

We played in Kyoto the next day had some extra time to visit the King of Games office and gallery show. Kyoto is the corporate home of Nintendo, and King of Games is a small team of graphic designers who make clothes and things using classic Nintendo game-art as source material. Nice dudes too, they even gave me a Zelda shirt!
The photos above are from their gallery/cafe exhibit where we had some lunch. There were many tshirts based on classic Nintendo artwork and also more conceptual works as well. If you are interested in learning more check the link below.
