Natsuko is one my best friends! She lives in Tokyo. We met, of all places, on myspace where she recognised me from my doll work. She started helping me get things from Japan that I had wanted for years, such as Hanayo's books and cds and sending me wonderful presents. She helped me so much on my first trip to Tokyo, and I spent the most wonderful time with her. Best tour guide ever!

She is the most genuinely generous, thoughtful and kind person I've met and she never expects anything in return. She just loves making people happy. That's why everyone loves Natsuko!

Her help for this website was precious, especially for the poupees section.

She has a very nice flickr where she posts photos of her ever growing vintage doll collection, every day japanese life and funny japanese culture. Check it out here!
