Ever since the earthquake a lot of people here in Tokyo have been refraining from going out and about, but recently many young people have been dressing up in spring fashions just like old times. So how are all of you doing?
This time we have added new products from 3 manufacturers: Bodyline, Clearstone, and m.i.a costume.
We especially recommend the second edition of the popular Teens Ever brand of high school girls' uniforms made by Clearstone.
The lineup is a bit late and perhaps somewhat out of season, but new designs for various items such as blouses, skirts, sweaters, etc. are making their debut.
There are also some new and unique products here:
Also, right now we are holding a sale of 20% to 99% off the regular price of items in the Bargain Bin.
Most items are 30% off. Since this is such a good deal, make sure to check it out!
Well, as many of you may know, recently the level of the accident at the nuclear power plant in Fukushima was determined to be level 7, the same level as Chernobyl.
Because of this many people are overreacting, and are hesitant to buy Japanese-made products, even such products as electrical appliances and clothing.
Recently in Tokyo, 2 to 3 times the normal amount of radiation (0.10 µSv per hour) has been observed.
To have an effect on one's health, it is said that one must be exposed to 100 mSv=100,000 µSv over the course of a whole year, but if one is exposed to the current levels of radiation for one whole year, it would only add up to about 1/114 of that.
Therefore, these levels wouldn't have any kind of effect on one's health.
The risk of cancer from 100 mSv will raise by 0.5%. This is the farther lower level than the one of possible harm that tobacco incurs.
Worrying about this level of radiation is like worrying about the risk of cancer that comes with wearing clothes that have been exposed to tobacco smoke.
Initially we were very worried because we did not know much about the radiation, but at least now we know that there are no concerns about health risks in Tokyo.
Now, alongside the negative effects caused by worries about the original earthquake, the tsunami, and the nuclear power plant accident, rumors of this fourth threat are causing even more damage.
With this overreaction to the radiation levels, it is more important now than ever to support Japan by continuing to buy Japanese products!
