As some of you might remember from our Yukata video, Martina had a bit of difficulty in tying up the obi for her Yukata. And by a little bit I mean a WHOOOOLE lot. She didn’t practice at all after we filmed that video. We didn’t really have an occasion to. But this was finally the time! Thank God for YouTube! We couldn’t knock on our neighbour’s door so late at night and ask for help. So YouTube came to the rescue, and guided Martine to a decent looking Obi. Also, for those of you who follow us on Instagram, you might have noticed that I have a Yukata as well. I didn’t do a lot to share it yet, because it was pretty much a last minute Yukata we bought on Amazon. It’s not really my style, and the fabric is SUPER ROUGH. But my skin is super smooth now after all the exfoliation, at least.
We’ve also got a bunch of pictures from the day. We’re really getting into photography lately. I doubt we’ll make a career out of it, but it’s fun to take pictures. I hope you’re ok if we share them here:
Otherwise, it’s a holiday now in Japan. Our neighbourhood is so empty! We were out this weekend and didn’t get slowed down in a giant hoard of people as we usually do in Kichijoji. Our neighbour told us that everyone is going back to their hometown now, and the highways are overrun by traffic jams. Supposedly Monday is a holiday as well. Either way, it’s great here in Kichijoji now. So not busy! Wahoo!
And if you’re interested in Magical Mail Time, it’s now on our Bonus Channel. We got through a lot more of the packages this time around, and we’re almost fully caught up! Wahoo! Hopefully we’ll get through the rest of them soon before the heat melts them all. Check out the video below!
