Are you ready for a scandalous video about Germany’s Goth scene? Watch me and Yukiro explore Berlin’s darkest clubs and fashion, on Huffington Post Travel — CLICK!

We nightcrawl a fetish party, Last Cathedral horror bar, deathrock clothing stores (like XtraX below) and alternative art events (Berlin Biennale). Plus footage of a Japanese party with DJ SiSEN from Tokyo! Danke to apartment rental company Go With Oh for making this coverage possible.

It’s too bad that the artists can no longer reside and create here.

Tacheles was a site of inspiration, and home to many alternative and Japanese gatherings.

If you’re coming to Berlin, I hope you can attend one of Japaranoia’s “dark and strange” parties. They are a collective that includes DJ SiSEN and Gothika.

Yukiro and I also took a trip to Potsdam (about 40 min from our Charlottenberg apartment). For anyone fond of Rococo and Baroque decadence, the architecture is an inspiration.

Sans Souci, summer palace of Frederick the Great, took us back to 18th-century court life.

    Haha the Visigoths and Ostrogoths…! I can imagine you wearing wolf skins and an iron helmet, brandishing a sword while shouting a war cry! (Not Basil, he’s too gentle and cute for that…)
