Utsunomiya/Tochigi Lolitas? Also, Mbok question. [Nov. 14th, 2013|10:46 pm]
Lolitas in Japan

Hi there! Last month, I started my year long Study abroad trip here at Utsunomiya University in Tochigi Prefecture.  While I've been here for a little more than a month, I've yet to really go out and explore the lolita shops around here, or anywhere for that matter.  I've only been into lolita for about a year and a half, but I really want to take full advantage of my study abroad opportunity and make tons of new friends along the way! So I was wondering if anyone is in my area? or if anyone would like to talk?

Oh, I also had a question regarding Mbok. I've tried twice now, but for some reason my foreign credit card (visa) is not being accepted into their system when I try to create an account. I saw that there is a way to get around the credit card requirement using a cell phone, does anyone have experience with this? Thank you!

Hello, unfortunately LJ and this comm are dead so you may not hear many responses. There is a Tokyo Lolita community on facebook who also have members from all around the Tokyo area including Gunma and Saitama - not sure about Tochigi, you'd have to ask.

Before you join you have to fill out a questionnaire - it's in the About section on the right side. PM it to one of the mods.

Yeah I had the same issue with auctions not accepting non-Japanese credit cards so I did the phone thing with Yahoo Auctions. I don't live in Japan anymore and I kind of forgot how I did it but maybe you could ask your phone company or a friend to help?

Ok! Thank you!

I'm wondering about that. Mbok also has a phone option, but I don't have a smartphone. Do you know if that means I can't sign up? or if I can, can I only bid via my phone? I'd rather bid on the computer.

I don't think you need a smartphone - mbok/yahoo auctions just adds their monthly fee to your phone bill. I'm not sure if that's doable with a prepaid phone if that's what you have, I've only done it with a contract plan phone. And your account would have a username and password so you can access it on PC or wherever you want. But really I'm not very knowledgeable about this subject and I canceled my yahoo auctions subscription about 2 years ago so my info is out of date!
