Dobuita Street on Japanese TV Show "YojiGoji Days"

Yokosuka was featured yesterday in TV Tokyo's YojiGoji Days, a daily show with information about daily life in Japan. The on-the-scene reporter was retired boxer and celebrity Yoko Gushiken, who visited some familiar locations in the Dobuita Street vicinity.

Gushiken called into a Yokosuka jacket ("Sukajan") shop called First Shokai, whose owner has been hand-making jackets here for around 40 years.

Gushiken asked to see an actual jacket being worked on...

"I'd like to see one being stitched".

...and the owner obliged. He explained that one jacket takes about 3-4 days to complete, and he is fully booked up through to the New Year.

Next Gushiken strolled down Dobuita Street itself.

His next destination was TSUNAMI, famous for its huge burgers named after American Presidents. There are always long queues on the street outside around lunch time.

We look forward to Dobuita Street's next television appearance. Let's hope that, following Shenmue I & II's release in Japan next month, Shenmue may get a mention on a future program.
