It’s been literally ages since I’ve been there. No, I’m not talking about the Neuschwanstein Castle. I’m also not talking about Disneyland – but the next best thing. I’m flying to Tokyo next week! And I’m so excited and nervous at the same time. As I already said, it’s been a very long time (15 years?) since I’ve been there. But now is the perfect time for another visit: My sister (who – unlike me – speaks Japanese) and my father will be there, too. So my Japanese grandma and I can actually “talk” to each other (through sister/dad) when we used to only smile (OK, she smiled and cried at the same time) at each other on Skype. I’m a little sad that Alex can’t join me because he has to work. But I hope we can make it together next time. (Thanks for your support – big xo!)
To me Japan, and especially Tokyo, is a fashion heaven! Not only do I admire Japanese designers, I also hope to get some things in my size. Shoes in size 35 – I’m coming! Also looking forward to all the crazy vintage stores – last time I bought an old pair of Levi jeans at a price which even exceeds the price of my current (also as in current/elliott ;)) jeans. They were really cool – and really vintage, means: they fell apart after a short time.
I keep on collecting fashion addresses that I definitely need to pay a visit. And since 15 years is a long time, I guess there is loads of new cool stuff for me to discover now. Has anyone been to Tokyo recently and can recommend any special store, boutique, cafe, restaurant…? Please let me know!
