Accessories from Japan (part one)

This week it will be seventeen years since I left Japan.  I cannot believe that it was that long ago that I lived in Japan for two years.  Although I have been back to Japan many times since then (including April this year!) on holidays, it will never be the same as living there.  It was the most exciting two years of my life, in which I developed a deep love and admiration for the food, fashion, culture and people of Japan.

In this post I have included my favourite accessories that I bought in Japan.  At a later stage in part two, I will include my favourite Japan inspired pieces that have been sourced from all around the world!

I love that owls have such deep meaning and significance and yet are also very cute!!  Owls have been in fashion on and off over the years, but they will always be a favourite of mine.
