I have only had the joy of visiting Japan once. It was a quick 10-day trip to Tokyo with my sisters Charlotte and Samantha. I love Tokyo (I can only speak for Tokyo because I didnâ€™t have the opportunity to travel outside the city). To me it seemed like all the wonderful things I might imagine Mars to be likeâ€”plainly, I mean futuristicâ€”yet it is grounded by the very strong presence of ancient culture. This dichotomy is what I like most about the city, other than Kiddy Land and karaoke, of course!
We have all been thinking a great deal about Japan as of late, and in turn, what the tragic events of the past month reflect about our future as a whole. When disaster strikes, both natural and unnatural, one must not forget that, although these events take place at such a far distance, there is still much one can do to help at home. Charlotte Ronson and friends are doing their own small part by holding a sample sale at the Charlotte Ronson offices from April 13th through the 15th, and all of proceeds from the sale will be donated to the Japan Societyâ€™s Japan Earthquake Relief Fund.
