Blythe was born in the US 1972, and repro goes really famous in Japan, from 2001.
It’s very interesting these dolls always “remake” by Blythe Artist, and they are getting more kawaii!

Tokyo is tooooooo hot in these days!
I went to Seijo Annya with my friend to have a good shaved ice.
We both chose brown sugar syrup, and I added matcha ice cream, my friend added wasanbon (refined Japanese sugar) ice cream.
That made us cool and smile.

They had the Mandarin Oriental Tokyo Selection teas, the flavored teas, the Royal Milk teas, the Lounge Selection tea of the week, the Traditional teas, the Herb Blend teas and the coffees on the menu.
The teas were carefully made, and the fragrant teas made us very good mood.
