DESCRIBE TOKYO TO SOMEONE WHO HAS NEVER BEEN BEFORE.
Clothes, records and everything else – a city where you can purchase things from all over the world.

WHAT IS THE HOTTEST LOOK IN TOKYO RIGHT NOW – FOR GIRLS AND BOYS? There are too many selections in Tokyo and no "hot fashion of right now" can be set all the time. I guess that is what makes Tokyo the way it is, though.

The most comfortable season of the year. It feels good.

...SUMMER. Gets very hot.

...AUTUMN.
The air gets very clear and it feels good.

...WINTER. Gets very cold.
