Hi everybody!

Japanese Souvenir Jacket photos by our in-house photographer, Justin Japan

Japanese Souvenir Jackets or more famously known as the "Sukajan" (Skajang/Skajan) trace their roots in the Asia Pacific during the World War II when the American troops stationed in the Pacific have wanted to have some "memories" or souvenirs of their foreign assignments to bring back home. It has sort of become a solidarity uniform or remembrance of their posts and service in the war and their comrades with whom they have spent some of the bravest time of their lives. It is said to have originated from Yokusuka in Kanagawa Prefecture where its name is thought to have come from - "Suka" from Yokosuka and "Jan" from the Japanese term Jumper or ジャンパー or jacket in layman's term. The famous maker of them during that time is the staunch brand, TOYO Enterprises, which still exists until today. These days it has evolved to become the ultimate and iconic Japanese fashion “cool-tural” export product that resembles cool and street all combined in one statement.

Life Lately + Hobonichi Diaries + Kyoto Trip Preview 🍵

Hi everyone!

After long week doing various work, I'm so happy that I finally got the time to post and update this blog!

Ever since 2017 started, a LOT has happened. It's been such a whirlwind lately but I'm just really grateful that even though it's been a rough start (work-wise), things seem to be working out for me. I'm getting shocked almost every other day, lol!

Anyway, let me just narrate a few things from notable (and regular) days. ^^

Being able to film during my free time (lunch breaks and mornings before work, haha) is something that I will be always thankful about!

Indeed, if you really want something to kick off, you have to make time for it. This year, I aim Rainbowholic.TV to really grow :)

Little by little, I'll get there. ^^

Such a fine day in Kyoto. Wearing Kimono during my birthday in my most favorite place in the world was the best for me.

Taking days off every year for solo travel really freshens up my spirits.

The little things such as admiring this view while inside the train just make me so giddy like a child. Reminds me of the time I traveled solo to Hokkaido too!

Rented a kimono in Arashiyama (Yume Kyoto Kimono) and chose this adorable design! Simple but kawaii!

Getting surprises and gifts such as this from random strangers (hello, Yume Kyoto Kimono staff!) = aahhhh best feeling!

How many times have I typed "best" / "happy" words here? Haha! I'm running out of synonyms!

Matcha matcha!

I wanted to freeze this moment so bad. So peaceful, serene and perfect. Me and my matcha dessert for breakfast, haha!
