In Chamonix-Mont-Blanc

It's a little late for the first post of 2024, but keylime Tokyo started its New Year operations last week in Gohongi.

Thank you all for your continued support this year.

This year we are looking forward to expanding our content, including this Journal and our newsletter.

If you have not yet signed up for our newsletter, please take this opportunity to do so.

We have created a new category called 'Travel' in our Journal and would like to share with you a record of our domestic and international travels.

We hope it will be useful for you to know what kind of people (me) make and buy our products, even though it may not be directly related to the products we sell.

Now, this trip is to Chamonix-Mont-Blanc, a town in eastern France.

It is a ski resort on the border between Italy and Switzerland and is the closest town to Mont-Blanc, the highest peak in the Alps.

The town is full of sports shops everywhere and outdoor clothing is of great interest.

The rental ski gear is also very cool. (Compared to the rentals of my own childhood)

It was my first time skiing in 25 years and I was worried about what would happen, but when it was over it was a fun memory.

I would like to take this opportunity to start skiing again.

The latest ski goods like SALOMON are so cool...

Also, the classic style ski wear with tight tops and slightly flared bottoms is really cool.

By the way, many rich people come to this town, so the percentage of people wearing white clothing is high.

This is how everyone moves around town, wearing ski boots and carrying ski boards.

From here they take a bus to the various slopes.

Helmets are worn at a very high rate, with about 95% of the population wearing helmets.

The ratio of skis to snowboards is about 9:1, with the overwhelming majority of skis, which gives a sense of European tradition.

It would be fun to buy souvenir-like goods in these towns and sell them in my shop, but the charm of souvenirs is reduced to half if you don't buy them locally.

Or, if the souvenirs are magic and you bring them back home, they might not be that great...

But one day, when I find a souvenir that can stand up to the quality, I will bring it back to keylime Tokyo and try to sell it.

How was our first 'Travel' Journal?

If link this to keylime Tokyo products, a good quality sweatshirt top and bottom will come in handy in resort areas.

This time it was a sub-zero town, so the 1027 material is a bit chilly, but it would be the best choice for life in a Japanese city.

The material is also just right for spring after winter. We look forward to seeing you again this weekend in Gohongi.
