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!



  1. I dream of making it to Japan one day. I know Sea of Shoes/Atlantis Home has featured really interesting places they’ve been to in Japan.

  2. i was going to say jane and judy of sea of shoes and atlantis home, respectively, but the amazing -h of pret a porter has already beat me to it. nothing gets past her, haha. 😉
    anyway, i think they’ve been to tokyo several times…if you scroll through their blogs, you’ll see some awesome tokyo posts w/ recommendations. failing that, i’d email or twitter them to inquire.
    i have not been to japan myself. i hope you get some good recommendations.

  3. Oohhh, this is so cool. My husband still raves about his times in Tokyo (more about the food than the fashion) and his life’s wish is to walk Japan. I just really want to go – for the food, the fashion, everything. I bet you will have a great time. And please come back with lots of tips! (So sorry to be of no help whatsoever in that regard)

  4. You’re feet are so small! I think my mum has the same shoe size as you and she has a lot of trouble finding stuff she likes that fit her tiny feet. My aunt’s feet are even smaller and she just ends up buying children’s shoes hahaha.
    I’ve never been to Tokyo but I agree, the fashion/shopping there seems incredible. I wish I could afford to fly there to shop because I never find anything I like where I live!
