Dark brown bags mean one thing in Japan...

...lingerie shops!

Recently I went looking for some nightwear for my Tokyo trip.

I was aiming for "oh really? Is this seductive? I hadn't noticed - I was just trying to stay cool in the heat".

If you know what I mean ladies ;)

So here is another shop recommendation - Pinky Magic.

It can be hard shopping for underthings (as a curvy Westerner) in Japan if you don't know where to look.

It's too easy to get swamped in frills and padding.

Pinky Magic carries a good range of sizes and I have been able to buy tights, leggings, bras, panties and other unmentionables in there.

They do sexy, sweet and practical - something of a rarity.

When I went in the other day everything was 20% off, so I "invested".

No-leg socks - what do you call these anyway? 3 for 1050yen.

Normal ankle socks, also 3 for 1050yen.

And, the real reason I went in in the first place, haha.

Free pouch - I now have versions of this in red, blue and green. No more please! I use them for DS games, haha!

Even though Sendai is pretty international, the staff were all like "OMG blond hair" when I went in.

That can be irritating but the girls were sweet so they managed to convince me to sign up for a loyalty card.

It was free so I didn't mind, but now I realise that I don't know what the benefits are!

Oh well, I guess I'll have to back for more stuff to find out!
