    That *would* be funny if a black guy said it. And, no, I'm not black - but I *AM* homogeneous.

    In the building called ニュー渋谷コーポラスゴルデンプラザ渋谷 (right in the middle of the above map). 9th floor, turn right out the elevator, last door on the left. The stylists are African guys.

    And in some cases, both.

    EA is not black and so hasn't actually been to the salon himself, but has a friend (I'm assuming black) who goes there regularly.

    New Shibuya Co Plus Golden Plaza Shibuya

    The building name is basically English.

    If you say it with a Japanese accent, you'll be saying it correctly.

    What it says is: New Shibuya Corplass (??) Golden Plaza Shibuya. I'm not sure about the corplass - it's koopurasu in Japanese, but I can't think of any word that matches.

    It's across from 'Parco 3'. If you ask people where that is, someone will be able to point you in the right direction. Most people know Parco. The place itself is an apartment building.
