Tanned and tattooed, Takashi Kumagai likes to surf as often as possible—“If there’s a wave and I don’t have to work, every morning,” he says. But while he lives in Hayama, a beach town outside Tokyo, he’s hardly a surf bum. Clad in polka-dot shorts, a seersucker jacket and a sailor’s hat, Kumagai is in fact a modern-day Renaissance man, a photographer, stylist and garden designer who’s also the creative force behind some of Tokyo’s most innovative retail concepts, including the celebrated Adam et Ropé Biotop revamp.
