>> I'm afraid over the next few days most posts will begin with "I bought this in Tokyo…" but there's no getting away from the fact that my pure aim of my seven day jaunt to Tokyo was to EAT and SHOP and so it is that I return with 15kg extra luggage and err…a few kg on my own bodyweight.  I consider that mission completed as I gaze at my suitcase full of treats and linger over memories of amazing tonkatsu and fresh creamy tofu.  With regards to buying stuff, I had basically one rule when considering the buy "Could I buy this in Europe or on the obvious places on the web and at this price?"  If the answer is a resounding no, then it's a yay.  I think this Limi Feu wallet definitely ticks the box.  It's hard enough to find Limi Feu anything in London let alone a wallet by the label that's half off in price.  Limi Feu Unlimited in Daikanyama is a gem of a store where shop assistants follow you around with a calculator, as you yelp out the original price and then breathe a sigh of relief at the final discounted price as everything is between 50-70% off.  It was the strange colourway of a gradiated blue-to-nude that convinced me as well as its awkward size betwen wallet and clutch.  It just about fits the requisite phone, lip balm, Oyster, cashcard and keys fortunately so it can masquerade as a clutch if needs be.  So begins the "I bought this in Tokyo…" trail which will unfortunately linger on this blog for a while yet.  The subtext is of course quite clear… "GO TO TOKYO and you will NOT be disappointed!"

    I hope the overweight didn’t cost you too much. Love the wallet and that it has two colors that almost melt in to each other ..
