I’ve been busy getting ready for Saturday’s launch party for Cool Japan Guide – 2pm at Kinokuniya (1073 Ave. of the Americas, NYC)! You can RSVP here! It’s extra exciting because there will be limited edition prints (in the design seen above). Kinokuniya will include a print with each purchase of Cool Japan Guide at this event while supplies last. Also, I have two fantastic sponsors who have provided some great prizes for the party.
