It was cold on our 6 hour + flight from Haneda. I had a huge sweater and a blanket covering me. Upon arrival in paradise, my wool socks began to roast me and itch me. My thongs were packed so I couldn’t wear my nikeswithout socks that would be gross, but I would soon go crazy with discomfort. Then, I remembered my souvenir purchase from Tokyo airport. SOCKS! They are socks to be worn with thongs. I bought 2 pair as my only souvenir the entire trek and they were remarkably in my carry on. Praise The Lord what great timing.
