    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.

Mentos flavors in Japan

Been chewing away on plenty of Mentos in recents weeks (for reasons that are not important here) but I'm getting sick of just the cola, grape, and mint flavors. In years past I alway remembered there being a whole bunch of Mentos flavors available in Japan but now I can only find the three. If you've seen any other than those mentioned above, can you tell me where?

Kotatsu advice

For this year's winter I want to be as prepared as possible...we've already got heated rugs in some rooms but I'd like to get a kotatsu for another room we have. Any recommendations for brands, or things I should consider when shopping for one? Also, are there any without an exposed heating element? I've got little ones in the house so the safer the better!

Film Cameras in Tokyo

So I'm looking for a SLR film camera (maybe Minolta or Nikon). I've seen tons on Amazon but I prefer seeing the actual product first before buying it. Also, I want to look for better deals. For sure there are tons in Akihabara but I don't know where to start looking in there. And I wanna know if there are areas I can check other than Aki. Thank you. :D
