kawaii manga : Honey & Clover by Chica Umino

Honey & Clover 1 (Honey and Clover)

I introduce Japanese girls favorite manga. They are not only NANA and NARUTO. The Manga i like best is Honey & Clover. The author Chica Umino was ex-Sanrio designer. (Sanrio is known as Hello-kitty’s company)

Honey and Clover 2 (Honey and Clover)

Honey & Clover’s story is art college student’s life story. Boys and girls’ love and growing process are described.

Honey and Clover 3 (Honey and Clover)

This story is very interesting. Besides, every characters are so much “kawaii”. I like them all.

satine LA

When I went to LA a few weeks ago, I went to a famous boutique satine in LA!
satine was selling some japanese brands, TSUMORI CHISATO, TOGA and etc.
I was moved in a stylish shop.

Anyway, do you know that there are a branch shop in Tokyo ?

Some original clothes which are owner of satine Jeannie Lee designed are sold at reasonable prices. I think a Japanese apparel company runs it.
