When one thinks of Tokyo, 90% of the time they imagine crowded, neon light-flashing streets of bustling Shibuya, Shinjuku or colorful Harajuku. But honestly, there is more to Tokyo than those tourist-favorite locations. Lisa of Paint with Stars and I share a liking for the more quiet and traditional areas in Tokyo, and Sugamo turned out to be one of them. Sugamo’s population is known to be made up of mostly the older generation, so you can see many grandmas and grandpas strolling the “Shoutengai,” or shopping district near Sugamo station. We were pleasantly surprised at this famous shopping district, as there were store after store of mom and pop shops selling traditional Japanese sweets, delicacies and home-made side dishes that are a must for real Japanese cuisine. And I think it is somewhat of a tourist location to visit the statues of Ojizo-san, or Jiao, the guardian diety of children. I’ll be posting more pictures of all this later on.
I’ve introduced the brand Metrocity in this post, and this time I’ve styled an outfit around this pink neoprene sweater. Pink is my favorite color, but I hardly ever wear it, so this sweater was a really nice change for me. I kept everything else simple in color, with the gray draped skit and white cap & sneakers. And I just love these fun sunglasses courtesy of zero UV – a cute accessory always makes the outfit. Would you wear sunglasses with a logo on them?
今回は、Metrocityのネオプレンのプルオーバーをメインにコーデを組んでみました。ピンクは大好きだけど、あまり着ない色なので、いい気分転換でした。キラキラのロゴもすごく可愛い！zero UV のロゴ入りサングラスでダブルロゴ。ちょっとオーバーだったかな？
