Favorite Japanese Stores in Second Life

Although Japan is at the heart of Neko history, Japanese stores in Second Life are sometimes quite humble about promoting themselves, making them difficult for the average SL user to find. Below please find a list of some of my favorites. I hope you’ll delight in their range of items—from whimsical, kawaii, and anime-inspired, to simply well-designed clothing—as much as I do! Slurls updated as of November 3, 2011.

    Just a small correction if you allow me: Newreem Waffle is korean not japanese ^^ and yes I lob her style so much, she’s one of my favorite gals in the grid ~ xoxo

  3. u should update this some of these shops closed down just saying

    • Thanks Joshua, you are right. Keeping 14 resource pages updated became such a huge job, I’ve been unable to keep up with it after RL took over! I used to hire people (and pay well) to do it, but no one ever seemed willing to do it for longer than 1 page… sigh… (methinks I’ve created a monster!) 😛
