    https://www.kimono-yukata-market.com/ This shop has many plus sizes Yukatas. I ordered some for a friend and it fit perfectly for her.

    If you are able to come into Tokyo, there were a number of shops by Ryogoku Station that sold "sumo-sized" Yukata. I know that many years ago, I was able to buy one as a gift for some not small members of my family. They were not the fancy ones, but the post-bath types, like found in hotels.

    I check out the back of the store in the plus sized section at the largest, closest Aeon. I found a jimbei set in 5L that perfectly fit my 6'4 father. Not the most gorgeous selection, but there are some big ones, usually way in the back somewhere.

Clothes shops for the "not too young but not too old" crowd?

I'm pushing my mid 30's now, and I want to know about good places to find clothes here that fit that age bracket. I feel like there's a lot of stuff here suited to the 20-something crowd and a lot suited to people well older than me - but I seem to be missing the bracket that suits my age group! Any suggestions/recommendations for women's clothes stores that aren't going to make me look like a granny, but aren't going to make me look like a teenager?! Added point: I'm a mom of two kids so I need practicality, too!

Easter events

I know it is not very common to celebrate easter in Japan, but since more and more easter goods and sweets are in the stores, I thought there might also be some events. Does anybody know of some easter events, preferable in the Kanto area?

What's your favorite Tokyo hanami spot?

I feel like I've hit up all the "standard" hanami spots: Yoyogi, Asukayama, Ueno, Yanaka... What's your favorite spot (preferably not on that list) and why?
