This is my Tokyo ambasador.
She was surprised at how well i got around by myself. She mentioned that her boyfriend, who is also from nyc, was here last week (and once or twice before) and can be intimidated by going out on his own.
Her permed hair was one of 4 that i saw my entire time here. Apparently anything that isn't straight isn't looked at so highly at the offices or liked by many Japaneses men. I don't know about them but i'm all about short or really curly hair.
