English Club Party
I put a couple of pictures of the English Club party. It was really fun. I even won a prize for eating a large ice cream bar the fastest. After the party with food we went to a kareoke bar were I think I impressed the girls with my knowledge of J-pop songs… After that we went to this really nice bar next to the JR station. It was a bit on the expensive side but it was very clean. The bathroom was out of this world! There was even an aquarium in it! I’ll put pictures of that when I get some e-mails from the people with the good cameras.
Tomorrow we are spending the night at a collection of temples that reside in Koya-san. I’m looking forward to what I can learn there, but not looking forward to mosquito bites.
A couple of days ago Haruna recommended that I check out “One Piece” a manga about Pirates. She said it had pretty easy Japanese. I was unable to read the first page without a dictionary though…
Manga is REALLY cheap in Japan! Like $3.50 each, compared to $10 or $15 in the U.S.
Today I went to a tea ceremony performed by a club at Konan University. I sat in Seiza the entire time because I didn’t wan’t to give up before the Computer Engineer. An hour of that isn’t healthy. I was unable to move my entire leg after it was time to go. It was pretty embarrasing, but also really funny.
I have to find a club to attend before it’s too late. I’m not sure what club to join. I’m thinking the Igo Shougi club… but I’d rather be in a DDR club. Or at least a DDR machine somewhere… I haven’t been able to find one yet.
My Sharp MM20’s HD died again. So I went to the electronics store in Sannomea and bought the cheapest non-sharp laptop I could find. An iBook G4.
The thought of how much time and money I’ve poured into that MM20 makes me sad. It’s so damn cool too 😦
I played Final Fantasy I on a DoCo Mo cell phone today. It was awesome.
Japanese cashiers count bills in a really cool way that I can’t figure out how to do yet. I can’t even explain it properly… I’ll have to record someone doing it.
Someone else who has noticed.
I’m pretty sure this is the first time I’ve ever made flash cards. Hopefully they’ll work out for me.
