My outfit for the day consisted of pieces that I've had for absolute ages, except the T-shirt which is fairly new. You can't see it properly, but it's oversized, has rolled-up sleeves and is a lovely shade of marl green. Not quite matcha green, but whatevs.

I find Japanese street fashion by far the most visually interesting of any I've ever seen. Never since have I witnessed a populace so consistently well-turned out and immaculately presented, no matter what personal style they're rocking. Of course at Hyper Japan the most common sartorial theme was Lolita and Manga - check out these beauties:

|Rather more traditional attire|
Here's a few other things which caught my eye, bringing back many random memories:
|iPhone cases and the ubiquitous Kitty-chan|
|Japanese crockery. LOVE IT!|
|Kimonos up high|
|Takoyaki AKA octopus balls. Yup.|
|Matt found himself a Manga-me. He wishes.|
We rounded off the day by eating in a Japanese restaurant back in Crouch End. Here I am chowing down on some tempura and rice, or 'ten-don' as I snootily refer to it. Muchos soz for the blurry picture here and in general above, but we're both consistently crap photographers. Who knew?
