Taking on Tokyo as a 405-pound woman was initially daunting in a place where petite is the norm. I’ll admit, I had my concerns, especially after finding only a handful of shops catering to my size . I was very nervous about perusing this voluptuous body around the city of the ity-bity as a 5-9 size 26 girl! But, instead of waiting, I decided to dive right in, determined to prove that size should never hold anyone back.
