Ten-Ten, Director of Community Relations
I am a true product of Japanese culture and traditions. I have a fondness for Japanese food and architecture. I am crazy about “mei-san-hin (local specialties).” And, oh, one more thing that I LOVE. I have an irresistible passion for SHOPPING. I LOVE TO SHOP!!! On weekends I roam around gigantic shopping malls that can only be found in the U.S. I travel far and wide and network tirelessly to bridge my favorite countries, Japan and the United States.

Togé Togé, Chief Blog Editor
First thing first, my name, Togé Togé, means spiky. I had a hairstyle like that once, and the name stuck. Anyway, my 12-year-old calls me “Geeky Cool,” and that pretty much summarizes my styles and tastes in shopping. I love trying out new gadgets whenever I can afford them. I also have a weakness for the folksy and spiritual beauty of washi (Japanese papers) and other traditional crafts. I would say I am a unity of old and new. I hope to chat with people who are passionate about everything Japanese!!!


Himawari, Writer
My name is Himawari, an American-born girl transplanted to Japanese soil, then replanted in the golden state of California. I’m a hybrid of both countries, and my biggest wish is to make you love Japan as much as I do.


Sarah S., Writer
I’m crazy about Japanese food, art and culture, especially Badtz Maru (the angry penguin) and green tea ice cream. My husband and I spent our honeymoon in Tokyo and Kyoto, and I’ve also traveled to Zimbabwe, Great Britain, Switzerland, Italy, Austria, France and the Netherlands.

    Just wanted to let you know that Rirakkuma, etc, is NOT Sanrio. It’s san-x. A totally different company,
