I’m off to Japan again (Tokyo area, possibly Kyoto too) to escort my grandmother and visit my uncle one more time since his health is declining. I’m leaving in mid-Spring and will be there for about a month.
If you’re interested in something that can’t be bought online from Japan, or if you’re interested in something that you think would be a lot cheaper over there, send me an Ask and I’ll put it on my list. I can’t guarantee that I can bring back everything you request but I’ll make best effort. We usually shop a lot when we’re there, and usually make a stop in every major shopping district (including the famous Akihabura, Shibuya, and Harajuku) so whether you’re interested in a certain article of clothing or some anime crap, I’ll probably run across it.
Let me know what you want, when I’m there I’ll buy it and make a note of the cost (I’ll probably bring my Nexus so I can let you know that I found your things) and you can pay me when I get back (+ shipping to wherever you are). I’ll just round up change when I tell you the final cost so I can make even at least since I’m assuming I’ll be paying for an extra suitcase. IF YOU END UP NOT BEING ABLE TO PAY WHEN I RETURN OR I AM UNABLE TO CONTACT YOU, I’LL SELL YOUR CRAP TO SOMEONE ELSE. Please don’t request a bunch of stuff you can’t afford, set aside money for it.
Things I probably can bring you:
-Anime stuff of all sorts (including gacha)
-Art supplies, art books, etc.
-Non-perishable snacks and food (well, at least not immediately perishable.)
-Cosmetics and beauty products
-Clothing such as dresses, socks, underwear, shirts, hats, etc. (we tend to shop discount stores and thrift shops a lot with family, but we do end up at nicer places like 109. If you want traditional garb, it’s easy to find it cheap at thrift shops!)
-Small gadgets and toys (Akihabura is a goldmine for phone accessories, video game stuff and weird electronics)
-Some books/manga/comics/doujinshi (including porny ones, even normal bookstores have a nice stock of yuri/yaoi/bara/hentai etc. AND Doujins are $2-$10 instead of $15-$40 like they are here!)
Things I can’t bring you:
-Huge stuff (I need room in my suitcases for my stuff too!)
-Sex toys, live-action porn and other adult items that aren’t hentai (I wouldn’t mind but I’ll be stuck with my grandmother the entire time, so adult shops are out of the question unless she frees me for a day. I can get hentai and other anime porn at non-adult shops and just hide it, gma is nearly blind!)
-REALLY expensive and/or fragile crap
yEP. You’ve got a few months to decide and let me know, I’ll post the dates once we get the tickets finalized.
