#247- BEAUTY is in L.A. (@SENKEN-SHIMBUN /daily newspaper for fashion business)

These days I have been thinking about BEAUTY a lot.

My mom (who lives in Tokyo, Japan / She spent time in L.A. this summer) said, “There is a beautiful large blue sky in L.A.!!! Ocean and mountains are so beautiful. There are so many beautiful flowers and trees in L.A.!”

Yes, there are so many beautiful things in L.A.
And there are also many beautiful people in L.A.
About BEAUTY… I wrote two columns on Senken Shimbun (major Japanese fashion business newspaper) website on July 28th and Sept 9th.
I would like to share them with you. Please read below (my translation into English from Japanese of them).
