I’m just going to start this off my saying that in my family, I’m short. (Or, as my dad likes to say, “fun sized”).
Everyone – mom, dad, older brother, younger sister, all the cousins – they are ALL significantly taller than me. I’m 5’6″, by the way.
But in Japan, I’m tall. And that combination of the tall-ness and the hips (as talked about in this post) means that most “free size” Japanese dresses fit more like shirts. And most skirts look down right inappropriate.

I got into the writing business by accident. Now I live in the countryside near Tokyo with my husband, Ryosuke, where I draw comics, blog, and make videos about our daily life. Contact: Website | More Posts
