Wonderful news. It has been official. I will be leaving for Japan to participate with my family’s company, Italkarat and too sell the -neilfelipp- product line to the japanese market. We will be participating in the GIFTEX show. please do click on the image below to check out the show’s website…
I’ve heard from our research it is one of the biggest or it is the biggest jewelry and home accessories trade show in Japan and it will be held in Tokyo, the most expensive city in the world. I found out the top ten most expensive cities in the world are mostly in Japan and New York is just the 29th most expensive city in the world. Wow. What a surprise…
I’m really excited to participate but the biggest challenge I will of course be facing is the language barrier. I have been practicing my Japanese for a few days with some books and the internet but I will be given additional help by one of our family friends.
I can’t believe it. I will be leaving next week already and I will be there for a week. So, I have to make sure that I grab every opportunity while I am there like checking out the night scene if I can. If you have been in Tokyo. Please do give some suggestions.
The place where I really want to go is Harajuku. It is this place where these girls dress up like in many types of styles like cosplay. If you follow Gwen Stefani, those Japanese girls that her posse are harajuku girls. If you want to know more, just the check the net especially wikipedia. It will give you further details about it.
And of course, my ultimate goal is to taste AUTHENTIC JAPANESE FOOD especially ramen. I hope I would be able to find a good ramen shop like the movie “Ramen Girl” starring Brittany Murphy, rest her soul and what a horrible lost in the industry.
But anyways, I will of course be taking pictures when I’m there because most probably that is my souvenir for everyone. laugh.
