Hanging Out with Nao

First things first, a big thank you to the reader who reccomended Brown Rice Cafe to me-it's my new favorite. I've grabbed lunch there the past two days with my mom. 

An exciting find right next to Brown Rice Cafe was the Crayon House-a kids book and toy store, which also has an organic cafe downstairs. 


The kids books there were sooo cute…wish I could read them.

I'd like to know what this book was about…can't read japanese but I'm pretty sure the title is Satan Rides the Big Queef.

Loved this one about a kindly furry turd monster.

Upstairs at the Crayon House was the toy floor(!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)


Mom and I were wanting to bring all of these cool toys home and then we saw this big siamese kitty……

and suddenly kitty was the only thing that mattered to us. We were getting so lonely without our pets, this kitty was the perfect solution. It was immediately decided that the kitty would be our constant companion.


We've only just picked out a name for the kitty: her name is Nao.

Went back to Brown Rice Cafe yesterday-with Nao in tow. 

Nao likes to ride in my mom's Prada bag.

Yesterday I wore a men's tee from Urban Outfitters, a skirt from a japanese label I can't seem to remember, Natalia Brilli amp cord neckalce and Nolex watch, and Martin Margiela cowboy boots.
Mom wears Hysteric Glamour jeans, Nakkna dress, and orange flip flops
Did some shooting in Harjuku again yesterday-it's nice to shoot here because no one ever says 'no' to having their picture taken.
We've found that Nao causes a scene wherever she goes…it's hilarious, people cannot keep their shit together when they see this cat!! Flocks of old ladies were attacking us yesterday…a chorus of 'kawaiiiiiiiiiiiiiii's followed Nao wherever she went. A group of girls even started doing a totally hysterical imitation of Nao's floppy arms when we were walking down the street with her.
Nao and I posed for a streetstyle blog.
Nao has made many friends since we freed her from the Crayon House. 
Keiko from Anniversaire Cafe with Nao. 
Here is Kohta again, posing with Nao!
It's raining again today-I think my mom and I are going to take Nao to the aquarium. C ya later.

    love the shots of your adventures in Japan! Amazing how Nao is bridging you with the locals, as well as the common ground you share with all the fashionable Harajuku/Omotesando strollers. I was in Japan during late May and I wanted to get more stylish shots of everyone here but left after barely two weeks – your shots take me back and put a smile on my face.

    Its obviously a popular design in Asia!! Mines called Katy.

    Have you and your mom been to Shimokitazawa yet? It’s twenty minutes from Harajuku, practically a city dedicated to secondhand clothing stores. The people there dress the strangest in all Japan, you should deffinately check it out. There’s this store called Grand Bazaar and they have Yohji Yamamotos and MIHARAYASUHIROs, and the most stylish shop keepers.
    I’ll be there tomorrow, and then to Harajuku too… maybe I’ll run into you =)

    The girl in the blue cardigan sitting on a sidewalk guardrail with her boyfriend was photographed in Harajuku that same day by someone for Tokyo Street Style. The funny thing is, I recognized her from the boots she was wearing! Shoes are what does it!
    The other thing I’m noticing in your pictures is that almost no one is wearing high heels! I picked up on this in Elle Magazines street fashion shots, as well — 95% of the women were in flats. Is this a trend? Thanks to Michelle Obama? End of an era? I’d hate to put all my gorgeous shoes away! Even your Mom switched to red flip-flops! What’s going on here?
    Maybe it’s like handbags — they got so big and so over the top last year, that this year all we see are simple little envelope clutches. Then the shoes went crazy — higher and higher, ruffles, bows, charms, feathers, wild heels — maybe there’s no where to go from here but simple little flats!

    I have to say that I love your blog and follow it religiously. I do have one comment though. I am Japanese and I find it offensive that even though you do not know what the book says or means mocking it and saying that it could be “Satan Rides the Big Queef” is not something that is to be poked at. Some of those books are traditional and have been used to education children for a countless number of decades. Reading that comment made me feel as though you were poking fun at our traditions and customs. I did not take it lightly.
    As a fan, please be careful of how you say things. As you have noticed, staying in Japan, we are very cultural and traditional and conservative. We do not take any poking fun at our traditions lightly.
    Thank you.

    I know it’s really late to post this (especially since your own post dates back from.. what.. July?), but I am just so curious.
    I suppose everyone always asks you about brands and ‘where did you got..’ when it comes to your clothes, but now, I need to ask you where you got Nao from.
    Not which shop off course (I’m not going to Tokyo within a few months or so), but what brand it was.
    I guess I bumped into a cute plush kitty very similar to your Nao.
    It was a Kösen Plush-kitty. So cute and the most perfect accessory for a real-cat-lacking cat-lover like me (my mum believes she’s allergic to real ones, though that’s never proven).
