Where can I find a loctitian who maintains sisterlocks in Tokyo? I noticed Linda says she gets it retightened every 8 weeks.
Wow you spread the joy of SheaMositure! Are you still in contact with everyone you met?
That tongue, tho. I'd be afraid to eat it. haha. From your face in the sushi pic, I would have thought that you didn't like it, but glad it was more than awesome!
9am shots?! I just can't. Nikki, you were getting it for real!
Nikki, how I wish I could have been with you in Japan. I am a military wife and I love the traveling.
And I can't forget about the natural haired men. It's really great to see them embracing their natural hair as well. Locs, afros, and all!
Natural haired women are everywhere, even places I never expected like Japan! That is amazing.
It's beautiful to see brown sista's aboard and loving it. Would love to visit another country, but I will have my trusty phone on had with the Translate app.
There are also many countries where the people speak a lot of English.
OMG come to China next. Tons of natural fans here. :)
Really? I never would have thought.
Looking good overe there in Japan! You guys seem to be having a great time!
I've been toying with the JET idea as well, i know we have quite a few Jamaican's there. Sending some love (sunshine and warmth) to you guys.
I just learned about it, but it seems to be a great opp. I think you should def look into it.
I LOVE this post. I have been debating teaching abroad and to see people who look like me from different walks of life is inspiring. Most of the blogs I've seen about expats are negative, but the fact that many of them have been in Japan for years and enjoy it speaks volumes. Def def a great motivational piece right here! Thank you Nikki and to all of the wonderful naturals in Tokyo! Your presence alone is inspiring.
This sounds like an awesome experience for everyone involved!
love the background info on everyone and how the ended up in Japan :)
I liked that, too. Makes for a better connection.
I wish I was still stationed in Japan. Looks like youre having a great time. Speaking of food, make sure you make it to a "Pepper Lunch" I loved that place. Oh and Coco's as well for Japanese curry.
What kind food do they have at Pepper Lunch? Sounds interesting.
will do! Thanks!!!
So funny you ran into a Nigerian! Were literally in every country in the world! I'm sure he was Igbo too.
