Review: Marceline Smith’s Kawaii Japan

Kawaii Japan Shopping Guide
A while ago, Marceline from askingfortrouble.org kindly sent us a couple of her guides she has developed from her visits to Japan. In finally getting around to reviewing it, I discovered it had already been replaced by a new guide. Marceline kindly sent me her newer one for me to review. And while she has sent me a couple to review, you know I have to start with “Kawaii Japan.” (Thanks for the updates Marceline and sorry it has taken me so long to review.)
