Gray Matters

Turning Japanese

In my limited experience, I wouldn’t say that Japanese women are looks-obsessed but they are pretty rule-oriented. Like I was always pleasantly surprised to see any women who were larger and love Naomi Wantanabe obvs, and Azusa Babazono, kooky stylish, not young, not tiny, is clearly the best Terrace House host.

 This is just a long-winded way of saying I was surprised to find an Instagram account called grayhair_tokyo. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a non-elderly Japanese woman in the US or Japan with gray hair.
