Denny Sinnoh's "Akihabara Starlight"

nogi46 mai 15bd1221b85fca0556ef4ff28b1c309c

Here we are — the dead of winter. Good thing that not everything is dead.

Although it is cold outside, I am going to magically return to June 21st and share this great summer kimono collection. Global Warming be damned.

Who is the dazzling model? This is Japanese singer and model Mai Shiraishi (白石 麻衣). You may know her from the Nogizaka 46. Maiyan was born in Gunma Prefecture, Japan on August 28, 1992. What a co-inky-dink … that was the same day I earned my Ph.D.!!! Such a memorable day that was.

Please enjoy the slide show and dream of happier times in summer.

It is about time that I posted these photos, I have been hanging on to them since summer. I had them posted on my Nogi46 board on Pinterest. They have been popular there, as I see that they have been posted and re-posted many, many times.

Slightly off topic about Pinterest: I have many boards for my interests in Japanese culture. I used to write funny captions (at least I thought they were) for some of my AKB48 pins. It is funny to see many of my pins were re-pinned several times. My original captions are usually with them, as most Pinners do not edit the information. It is good to see that jokes that I made travel around the Internet and even come back to me on the boards which I subscribe to! I am uncredited, but I don’t mind. I just like that the mind of Denny is still zipping around cyberspace.

Starlight: Who knew in ’92 that Planet Deadwood would collide with me in 2016?

  1. Your caption comments are funny. I remember reading your amusing marks on the gravure wordpress blog, which seems to have died.
