Hey guys, I’m so excited to share with you my latest haul, from the Land of the Rising Sun: Japan!! I didn’t go myself (I wish!) but a friend of mine was visiting Japan and offered to pick up a few things for me, how fortunate, right?!

Granted, I was *supposed* to be on a no-buy, but it’s not every day I can ask a friend to walk into a shop in Japan and pick up some things for me. I gave him a budget of around 5000 Yen (~$53 USD) and a few specifications. I didn’t feel too picky because no matter what he bought I was sure I’d like it (if not, I could trade it). I was not disappointed!

I found it easy to navigate, and fun to use. I even posted a couple of mini-reviews and read some reviews posted by other members.
