Tokyo-based barber shop BARBER SAKOTA has established a loyal and diverse following that ranges from local skaters to elementary school kids and elders alike. Its founder Masaki Sakota previously worked at Freemans Sporting Club and is also a seasoned skateboarder. With an old-school barbershop look and feel, Sakota’s unassuming store sits next to the Shimotakaido neighbourhood’s local flower shop and Senbei (rice cracker) shop, offering a cozy and approachable space for people of all types, regardless of trendiness, age or social stance. Due to its diverse clientele, the shop has diversified its products, too, launching T-shirts, caps and most recently, a skate deck in the shape of the store’s iconic sign pole. Sakota enlisted Mr. Goro of Japanese retailer MIN-NANO to design a skate deck that looks just as good as interior decor. Released alongside a matching silver pin of the same design, the BARBER SAKOTA skate deck is available now for ¥13,000 JPY (approximately $117 USD) in limited quantities in-store at the BARBER SAKOTA shop in Shimotakaido, Tokyo.
