Alima Pure in Tokyo

Posted on March 02, 2011 by terresa | 0 Comments

Kate and I have been back from Tokyo for a couple of weeks now, but I am still constantly thinking back to what an amazing and beautiful city we were lucky enough to visit!

The purpose of our visit was to meet with our Japanese distributor and the management team of the store (Cosme Kitchen) that carries Alima Pure. Along the way, however, we were treated to gorgeous views, fabulous food and the most gracious hosts we could imagine. Although we knew that Tokyo is a huge city, we didn't fully grasp the size until we were in it. But more amazing than the size was the cleanliness. And we were lucky, the weather was clear and cold, so walking around was a pleasure.

Our first full day was our busiest, we went to the Cosme Kitchen headquarters for a meeting and lunch. Afterwards, we were interviewed by Miho Mochizuki, a Senior Editor with WWD Beauty Japan. Then we headed out into the Tokyo evening to visit two of Cosme Kitchen's shops. At the second one, a wonderful Alima Pure customer was purchasing some foundation and shadows, so I got to do a little mini-makeover. Thank goodness for our wonderful translators, Megumi and Yuki!

Speaking of which, we were fortunate to have some of the most wonderful "guides" in all of Tokyo! Employees of our distributor guided us through taxi-cabs, train stations, department stores and museums, helping us to overcome the language barrier. Tomoko, Megumi, Yuki and Keisuke were gracious and fun, we wanted to bring all of them home with us! A highlight was the amazing dinner that Keisuke ordered for us at a traditional Japanese Sushi restaurant. It was definitely the best sushi either of us have ever eaten, and also among the top five meals ever. The sake was also very good!

We have always had a fondness for our Japanese customers, they send us the sweetest, most polite emails, and they definitely appreciate the Alima Pure aesthetic. Now we have a better understanding of them, and are looking forward learning even more as we go forward. Here are just a couple of things we loved:

The very unsurprising result of our trip...we absolutely can not wait to go back to Tokyo!
