Event Announcement: Tokyo Street Pavilion is open!

Uhh... this is really a late announcement, considering that I got to know about it on the morning of the opening ceremony ^^;;;

Anyway!! Tokyo Street opened on the morning of Friday, 29th July 2011.

I went to check it out today at lunch! (long story on how that happened) It was not bad :) The Hokkaido Ramen place had a long queue, so we ate at Tokyo Don, which had pretty good tori katsu don. We also bought some pretty good mochi from Mochi Sweets.

While taking a brief look through the place, I noticed that there is a shop that's selling proper kimono items! Granted, I think they're overpriced, but the geta quality are at least better than alot I've seen. Also, considering that the shop is in Pavilion and has to pay their insane rental rates... Well, I kind of understand the prices ^^;

There are alot of nice places, including this nice-looking tea place and a few shops with really nice Japanese pottery and crockery, but I didn't explore much as I was short on time.

For those who are interested in checking it out, Tokyo Street is at Level 6, Pavilion Mall, Kuala Lumpur. That's right on Jalan Raja Chulan and Jalan Bukit Bintang, folks :) Across the street from JW Marriotts and Starhill Gallery.

On a separate note, I received by 20kg sea mail parcel yesterday!! It had my lot of 20 obi in it, as well as 2 new obi and a whole bunch of undies and accessories!! I'm way too excited about them! I'll probably wear a kimono with my new obi and one of my new hanjuban sets (purple!!) when going out with a friend this weekend ^___^

Take care and good night!

Hiya! From what I remember, they were selling a few yukata & obi sets, and some fukuro obi. I remember looking at their geta, but I didn't look around too much - not enough time that day ^^;;
