Hi! I’m Mitsu! A Political Science graduate, but more than that a complete and total shopaholic, beautyaholic and travelaholic and blogger about all trends located in Shibuya, Tokyo and beyond in Japan. I lived half of the time in Tokyo and half in Houston since 2007 until 2011, now I’m in Atlanta. Since leaving Japan I visit Japan twice a year for a month at a time and have traveled extensively throughout.
Mitsu in November 2011 from the Gilfy Sendai shop staff blog & Twisty 109 shop staff blog.

I have five animals: a basset hound and four cats. You’ll often see me tweet and instagram about all of them. If I’m not blogging I’m either shopping, working out, reading, heading out to eat, traveling, watching NBA basketball or spending time with my man/animals.
