Tiny clothes

In addition to tiny streets they have tiny clothes in Japan. Which means of course that even average sized Westerners have to buy large sized clothes. 

These are the labels on two hoodies I own. One bought in Australia and one here. They are actually approximately the same size despite what the labels say! 

Needless to say this can be demoralizing when buying clothes. But I am thankful that I am short enough to buy clothes. I have expat friends who are too tall or whose feet are too big to shop at regular stores here. 

A year ago I was having reverse culture shock in finding that I fit into clothes much smaller than I remembered: http://mmuser.blogspot.jp/2014/08/culture-shock-while-clothes-shopping.html
