The owner speaks limited English but her assistant speaks more. Explore Translation can help you translate and tell them your sizes (even convert shoes sizes) for a nominal fee!
Tonya our team member used Explore Translation to contact Karan Koron to tell them her 3 little girls sock and shoes sizes. Saori, the owner of Explore Translation, converted all the American sock and shoe sizes from US to Japanese sizes. The shop also sold Tonya little Japanese purses to match the kimonos Tonya owned for her children. The kids also had fun trying on and shopping for the hair accessories they also can rent or sell at their shop. It was so much fun to explore around and amazing how many kimono and accessories they have upstairs! The antique shop was also cool to explore around and Tonya and her kids also enjoyed some drinks and snacks in the cafe downstairs.
