Last Saturday, Aki and I went to the Hide Museum in Odaiba.
Hide was the lead guitarist of the legendary hard rock band X Japan, and they were the pioneers in founding Visual Kei. He also had a successful solo career, until his untimely death in 1998. For those of you who may not be familiar with Hide, please feel free to read this link.
I love how DiverCity Tokyo Plaza decorated the entrance of the festival area with images of hide.
During the day, the area was too congested to take a photo of the trailer. This was taken 40 minutes before closing.
Hide Museum 2013 'To The Future' is a portable exhibit that features personal artifacts from the artist such as a visual discography, guitars, clothing and accessories worn in videos, concerts and photo shoots; they also have Illustrations and writings as well as clips from videos and concerts. Along with each piece, there are several excerpts throughout the exhibition giving fans a more candid glimpse into the mind and life of Hide.
Back in 2002, I was fortunate enough to have gone to the original Hide Museum before it closed in 2005.
My first white day gift from Aki (he's making a cameo), a B.C. Rich Mockingbird; the signature shape of hide's guitars.
Looking gorgeous one lipstick at a time.
