Goto Dolls has done a major update on the whole thank you very much we’re just sitting here with our platters of rice cakes and oxcarts scene. In addition to dressing the imperial pair as the Emperor and Empress of Emo, their throne room is furnished with fabulous bouquets that are actually rings, hair clips, earrings and necklaces for the honorable daughter to wear!

Goto Dolls also makes modern sets with other themes, like this Cherry Blossom pair. See all of them shot in moody splendor on their website.

Writing mystery books set in Tokyo is mostly what I do, but I also blog about the odd stuff I see every day in Japan. I'm a graduate of Stanford University and the Sendagaya Japanese Institute in Tokyo, and a member of the International Thriller Writers, the Mystery Writers of America, and Sisters In Crime. When I'm not in Tokyo, I live in San Francisco. I also host a travel site called The Tokyo Guide I Wish I'd Had, so if you're headed to Japan and want to check out the places I take my friends when they're in town, take a look!
