Japanese wear arm warmers when it’s hot. When walking through Fukuoka you can see them everywhere. Many Japanese girls wear them, often in combination with an parasol, so that they don’t get any tan. Isn’t that strange?! I often see people wearing jackets, jeans and sneakers, but those arm warmers are the worst. I guess people who are used to the life here have no problem with the heat, maybe they don’t feel it at all and so they can go out dressed like it is already late autumn^^
While girls all over the globe want to be browned, the Japanese girls want to be as pale as possible. They even have whitening creams! It is really fun to discover all the weird beauty gadgets in Japanese stores!
