"Hanaguruma" is Araki's favorite Shinjuku bar hangout, recently closed, that he has frequented most evenings for years. With a quick search you can find videos of him drinking and socializing with his girlfriend Kaori and friends. “Kyoko” along with “Yoshiko” were the two proprietresses of the bar, easily recognizable from a number of Araki's photos, usually singing karaoke. This was her copy, possibly at the bar along with the many Araki photos and books that decorated the establishment.
