Tomoyo Harada is a Japanese singer/actress who used to be a popular idol in the 80s. I had never properly listened to her music before, but I'm getting kind of addicted to her recent works. Her voice is so soft and the tune is nice in the ears. And she wears minä perhonen!!!!! You can see all the minä perhonen dresses she's wearing in her website.

Also in the video clip of "Kuchinashi no oka(くちなしの丘)", my favourite which I've been playing over and over, she's wearing llovely dresses from mina so check it out! (It's amazing she's 41!)

    I guess it's true many Japanese women look younger when we age, but I really think she's one of the special people! I too look much younger than my real age, but I don't think I've ever really enjoyed it so much... maybe I will if I look like her when I'm 40!!! :D

  12. 本当に久しぶりに、見たけど変わってない! 素敵に年をとってる!!
