As you may have noticed, many of the goodies featured here are from a wondrous nirvana called WEGO, *insert your various rainbows, sugar, spice and everything cute right here* which we dare say is fast becoming one of our fave from the trip and moreoever, in LYF.

We first came across its neon red signage on our very first days in downtown Osaka along the sparkling Shinsaibashi shopping arcade. What we particularly liked about the shop was not only its wicked jap-centric aesthetic but also its seamless merging of used and new clothing, and best believe, the used stuff was sick, with heaps of sporty goods, tricked out Disney graphics and chunky Buffalo platforms. It's mouth foaming stuff. The rest you can say was fate as we shinkansen'd ourselves to the end of our trip and to Takeshita Street; straight into the welcoming love nest that is WEGO. Kitschy, yet stylish; claustrophobic, yet claustrophilic, eastern, yet western. All these oxymorons have a point to them we swear. The thing is if you're ever around this great country, we highly recommend giving WEGO a peep, it'll be well worth it.

To see you was to adore you WEGO, so without making this sound too much like a lovelorn scrawling, here's part II, we hope you will enjoy.

Part III coming soon..
