I'd like to first apologize for my long - and frankly, unplanned - hiatus. I am now back in Japan, back in school, and have just finished my midterms. Life in Japan has reached a sort of routine, finally. I now have morning classes, which leave the afternoon open for... studying. Level 4 is proving significantly more difficult, as we now learn five (5) new kanji every day, each accompanied by 3-4 words: this translates into having to learn somewhere between 15 and 20 new words every day. Did I mention that there were daily tests? And that if you fail said daily test, you have to write out all your mistakes 20 times? Yeah...
In any case, back to our regularly (haha!) scheduled programming - pictures of cool things I find in Japan!
First, a few things that I have seen in stores since coming back to Japan...
|I needed hangers - is it bad that I bought these because I thought the Engrish was hilarious?|
|Not actually the one we bought, but looks similar...|
After purchasing the rice cooker, the store actually wrapped the box up with the black straps you'll see in the next picture, and ATTACHED A HANDLE. What a crazy idea.
|Matt carrying home our rice cooker.|
|GRAFFITI?! IN JAPAN?! NO WAY!|
|I hear this game is often played by old Japanese men who gamble all their money away...|
|I guess That must be good for cleaning dishes...|
|No clue why you'd want to drink coffee out of a burger|
