Finally an outfit post from Japan! This was Wednesday's outfit and I must admit I was not entirely ready for he really cold weather and rain in Japan. My previous visits have always been in the summer, and that can get extremely hot and humid. While I packed most of this outfit, the jacket and boots are borrowed from my sister's closet. The rain and Ugg boots do not get along, unfortunately, so I have dully noted that if I visit Japan in the Winter I should make sure to bring weather proof boots or short rain boots. (I did bring an umbrella so I wasn't completely unprepared for the rain, but umbrellas are really cheap and can be bought anywhere.) Layering is key and I would recommend having thermals to wear under your tops and fleece-lined leggings to wear under your pants.
Tomorrow I'll be visiting Disney Sea in Tokyo with my sister and two friends. I am hoping it doesn't rain, but if it does I am prepared since I spent my day browsing a couple of department stores and found a good pair of boots for this weather. They were also 2000 yen which is roughly $20. If they don't fit in my suitcase I think my sister can make good use of them here since they are pretty warm.
I am not too sure what they plans are for the weekend, but if I have time while I am here I will post a recap of the things I've seen and done so far in Japan. I will admit not a lot of sight-seeing has happened. I've visited the surrounding cities (districts) and my sister's school, Chuo University. I've even attended a few classes and even this photo shoot occurred on campus. Most of my photos that I've taken are of the university so it will be difficult deciding what to share on the blog. The campus reminds me of Berkeley and it makes me a little homesick, but I know I will be back home before I know it.
Good Night from Japan and until next time!
