Interviewing Le Sian ~
Name: Sian Halsey
Location: Nerima-ku, Tokyo
Occupation: Exchange Student studying Japanese
Favourite Accessories: Block colour earrings, swatch.
Hobbies: Karaoke and drinking tea.
Choice of Food: Roast Dinner, Crumpets, Melon Bread.
Q: Describe your dress sense in a sentence
A: A bit boyish but cute all the same
Q: Would you say living in Japan has influenced your style?
A: I would certainly say that yes. Tokyo is such a vibrant trendy city, I feel a lot more comfortable dressing differently to how I would back home in the UK. Also the shops are very different here, there seem to be shops for different styles; unlike shops in the UK which will sell clothes of many styles and fashion - so here in Japan I’ve worked out which shops have, what I think suits me (and more than that- what fits).
Q: And which shops do you find yourself spending all your student loan in?
A: Uniqlo, Lowrys Farm, Global Work, g.u - they are literally everywhere!
Q: Haha! So aside from fashion, what has been your most enjoyable experience out there?
Q: Is that English or Japanese karaoke? Or a whole lot of Gangnam style?
A: Mostly English songs, some Japanese versions of Korean songs and a fair few Japanese songs. Karaoke classic- Sakuranbo -» look it up if you can it’s incredible.
Q: I and many others I’m sure would love to visit Japan; recommend me a few things that I shouldn’t leave the country without doing.
- Eat at Kaiten Sushi
- Take pictures in a Purikura photo-booth
- Experience the Shibuya Scramble Crossing
- Ride the Yurikamome over the Rainbow Bridge to Odaiba
