Located in Tokyo, the Neighborhood store is the first and last stop for biker fashion in Japan. With a grungy entranceway and a darkened interior, Neighborhood radiates with an underground vibe.

The clothing ranges from military-style jackets to janitor-esque jumpsuits and is displayed on industrial clothing racks amidst an array of unique display pieces. One of these displays is a teepee, complete with a Native American wax figure and a covered wagon backdrop. Another eye-catching piece is the huge motorcycle leaning against an exposed brick wall, which clearly states the store's dedication to biker-friendly clothing.

The Neighborhood store has a lot of occult-inspired items as well, from skulls to incense, available for purchase alongside the clothing merchandise.

Dark clothing aesthetics have risen in popularity a great deal in the past few years, making it clear that punk and grunge looks are the new high fashion.
