I know it’s NOT the correct word, but I couldn’t find Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeehar! in the Japanese phrase book! Haha!

Japan - food

I have been dying to visit Japan ever since I met Kylie and Cloud from Voodoo Rabbit back in Oct 2010 and heard that they actually go over to Japan from time to time to source Japanese fabric for their shop. I made them promise that the next time they went, I could join them! AND now I’m here!!!! In Japan… getting my fix of Japanese fabric..

oh, and of ALL things Japanese!!!

The Voodoo Rabbit gals love Japanese fabric because of it high quality and quirky designs. Their favourite brands are Kokka, Cosmo and Lecien.
