Tokyo based photographer Becky Yee investigates the life of a computer engineer living in a three-bedroom apartment in the outskirts of Tokyo. Only he is the self-proclaimed world’s largest collector of “Dutch Wives,” or sex dolls. In this exhibition, Yee explores the man’s collection of over 70 love dolls (all accessorized) that fill his apartment as well as the collector and his cravings for companionship. Dinner before a show like this should be equally wacky. Check out Tortilla Flats. The food is Mexican and delicious, but it’s the insanity within (bingo and hula-hoop nights) that is the real calling for this place. For drinks afterwards, hit the White Horse Tavern, a great bar and the old haunting grounds for Dylan Thomas. If you somehow have time before all of this, stop by Magnolia Bakery for some of the best tasting cupcakes in the city.
