Kjeld Duits: Yes, the one-piece sleepwear is really cute!
Jini: i also like the red sneakers~ also the one-piece sleepwear, i don’t know but i have a weakness for cute prints
Kjeld Duits: Absolutely! HEP5 is so much fun. Even for just window shopping, visiting Starbucks, or riding the giant Ferris Wheel. @Joedzilla: Start saving money for your wife’s shopping trips! (^_-)

Hundred Year Old Cool

Dec 25 2009: Antique kimono have become popular and it is now difficult to find nice ones at a good price. At Osaka’s Mei you’ll always find an excellent selection.

Kjeld Duits: Sandy, on internet I found an antique shop in Tomigusuku-shi, where they sell some old kimono. People at this shop may be able to suggest other shops where they specialize in kimono. Name: Naigai Address: 798-4 Onaga, Tomigusuku-shi, Okinawa (沖縄県豊見城市字翁長798-4) Phone: 098-851-2154 Map Google Map On one of the photos on their site the outside of the shop looks more like a garage than an antique dealer, but the photos of their interior are really nice. They are really cheap too. This page shows items selling from as low as JPY 500! (Be sure to click on the next link at the bottom.)
Kjeld Duits: Good question, Sandy. We have no contributors (yet) in Okinawa, and I haven’t been there for ages. So I don’t know. But I assume there must be used kimono shops there as well. Would love to hear from other readers!
sandy: Are there similar shops on okinawa or ishigaki?

Japanese Make Over of Italian Oldie

Dec 11 2009: Japanese head-wear designer Yoshinori Nakamura has taken the Coppola, the traditional flat cap worn in Sicily, and given it Japanese playfulness and panache.

Nao Okamura: Thanks for your comments:) yes yes! I like the pink one too!! there are some other designs too for the pink one.
wowchicken: Ooooooooooo, I like the pink flat hat. It looks so chic <3 It does have a cozy feel to it! lol It’d be nice to go there.
Jini: oh~ nice :D i like the fabrics and prints he uses~ the shop looks cosy too, maybe because it’s that small? ^^


Buddhist Street Flair

Aug 12 2009: Add some spiritual flavor to your fashion style

wowchicken: Yeah, the cell phone cases are really nice, and a cute place to put your cell phone. Love the oriental design.
Kjeld Duits: Those designs go back hundreds of years, and they’re still really cool. I wonder how many of today’s big names in design and fashion still have their designs in use a few hundred years from now!
Jini: ooh yes, i love the prints on the cell phone cases as well!! the shirts too ^^
