I have sometimes written about the issues of being a tall female in Japan: the difficulty in finding clothes that fit, the eternal reaction of 'oh my god, you are so tall!' (as if we hadn't noticed) and the occasional problems that crop up when trying to find a date.
A fellow kaijyu, Ms. Lara, gave an excellent talk on some of the humorous (and more serious) effects of being over-sized in Japan. Since she sums it up so well, and is totally hilarious, I recommend checking it out: Attack of the 50 ft. Woman
She is also a talented artist, you can check out her work here: http://lanabergmann.tumblr.com
