A skateshop. A bar. A fuckin cool ass place to come and kick it. Welcome to The Mint Skateboarding located in lovely Osaka, Japan. Opening our doors in the summer of 2013, we’ve managed to set our place in the Japanese skate industry and are one of the few reputable skater owned and operated shops in the country.
The Mint isn’t your typical Japanese skateshop and definitely a place to visit if you’re in Osaka. We do more than just sell skate goods. We are a crew of skaters, filters, and photographers. Our shop is also outfitted with a bar, beer on tap, and darts. Can’t speak Japanese? Don’t trip. Bug Barnes, the owner, is from San Diego and speaks English. Definitely make sure to drop by and say what’s up if you’re in the Osaka area. – mintskate.com
