1) Where can I find Japanese beauty products outside of Japan?
I had been running a website where I sell Japanese products that I absolutely love. Currently it's closed due to my personal issues, but I will try my best to reopen it soon. I used to sell Japanese magazines for $3.5 too.

2) Can you be my personal shopper?
I can buy products for you, though I will have to charge you 30% charge for service. The shipping will be a problem if you are thinking of purchasing heavy products, but let me know from the contact form, so that we can discuss what is best for you.

3) Can you recommend Japanese products?
I get this question very often, but I am not a beauty expert who knows all the products sold in Japan. Without knowing your preference, nor your skin / hair type, I cannot recommend you anything as I do not want to say anything irresponsible. However, I might be able to help you if you could let me know what specifically you are looking for.

4) I am coming to Japan soon, where should I go?
I get this question often too. Please check out this page.

5) Which camera do you use?
I started using LUMIX DMC-GM5 from Feb 2016. Until then, I was using my old digital camera belonged to my mother.

===The use of my photos===
Please do not use my photos without my permission. I work as a photographer too that you will need to pay royalties depending on the number of photos used.
