Tokyo lights

Tokyo lights

People people people people, lights, people, honking cars, more honking cars.  Stores and more stores and then more stores on top of those stores.  School girls in plaid sailor uniforms giggling in Starbucks.  Company Men blue suits crammed on subways – crammed crammed crammed cheek-to-cheek.  Arm socks and leg warmers.  Manga and more manga.  Time Square on crack.  Hello Kitty.  Magic toilets.  Hello Kitty.  People people people.  Hello Kitty.  Swine flu hysteria = anti-bacterial gel dispensers and face masks.  109.  Totoro and a fuzzy cat bus.  Kawaii!  Clown elevators.  One Piece.  Tired feet.  Old ladies in kimono with bedazzled cell phones.  French pastry.  Lemon CC.  Shrimp heads in your miso-yum.  Boots (love the boots).  Dance Dance Revolution.  People people people… Hello Kitty!Tokyo w giant doll

109… a seven-story, 1000 store mega-mall just for girls between the ages of ten to 25ish. Paris Hilton, Gwen Stefani, and Phoebe Wells’ favorite place to shop for all the latest Harajuku-girl fashions!

Manga… oh Jack, your cousin Tessa will bring you some manga back! THey are Japanese comic books and “One Piece” is a manga comic series about pirates – right up your alley!

Totoro and the fuzzy cat bus – they are from some Japanese Anime movies that Tessa & Phoebe love – have your mom order you “Kiki’s Delivery Service” or “Spirted Away” and you’ll learn all about Totoro and the Fuzzy Cat Bus…
