A unique association copy - "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. “Yoshiko” along with “Kyoko” were the two proprietresses of the bar, easily recognizable from a number of Araki's photos, usually singing karaoke.
