Hello Sandwiches!

How are you? Are you surviving this Tokyo Summer hunidity? Every year I wish I could move to Hokkaido from July to October. That's the dream. Until then, I'm keeping TEPCO happy with my electricity bill from constant air conditioning and living in lock down in Hello Sandwich HQ.

I will, however, be leaving air conditioning lock down on August 27th to host a workshop at my company office. We will be making clear cover notebooks using Martha Stewart Craft punches. It's only ¥2000 and tea and cake are included! There are only two more spots left so please book soon if you'd like to come along. English is okay and if you struggle with the website just send me an email (address on the right hand side column of my blog) and I will book your spot for you.

The details are over here.

8月 27日(水)14:30~16:00

In other news, I've been soooo busy making my new book!

I ended up hiring an amazing intern / assistant! We spotted this sweater in the 80s section of a second hand clothing shop in Harajuku the other day while we were shopping for props. How could I say no? Common winter! I want to wear this!

And, the only thing keeping me sane at the moment are little escape nights like this one above. Burgers with Luke followed by Family Mart roadies as we walked from Omotesando to Shibuya.

I hope you're enjoying a much more relaxing August compared to me!

Please watch this movie and read this book for me.

Love Sandwich


  1. Hokkaido, while better than the tropical jungleness of Tokyo, is still humid and sweltering PLUS we have NO aircon anywhere.

  2. can't imagine the effort on making up all of those to your book, it will look awesome!
