Day before yesterday, Roy and I went to Tokyu Hands (a sort of hobby/ craft/ nongrocery-store goods store) to see if we could find poker chips of a suitable weight and size. Roy has been playing poker with a group of other ALTs and local friends for months now, so I figured [...]
I just ordered pizza from an online form, and it will be delivered within half an hour. It cost about $25 for the whole order, which is a half-and-half pizza (1/2 is “Fresh Basil Italiana with peppered ham, basil, diced tomato, apple-wood smoked bacon, Italian style sausage, fresh mushrooms, green peppers, black pepper, [...]

So I happened to be awake at 12:30-ish tonight to suddenly notice our 団地 building wobbling. It felt kinda wiggly, as if it were being shaken by the wind. The wind has been strong lately…
But our giant projects building (← see photo to left) doesn’t wobble in the wind.
Sure enough, when [...]
May 5 is my birthday. That’s 誕生日 in Japanese. So yesterday I celebrated it, mostly with Roy but then with friends in the evening. Luckily, it is on a big holiday here in Japan — 子供の日 — which is in the midst of a large cluster of consecutive holidays. Those are Japanese [...]

(PreS. You can hover over the Japanese characters for a romanji-ization.)
So, much to the disappointment I’m sure of our friends back in the ‘States who desparately miss us and want us to come back, we have decided to recontract for another year. Or rather, a long discussion with our bank accounts and various other [...]
So, we have no pictures because Roy is too enamored with watching me to take them, and the folks who did take some photos haven’t shared yet, but….
To make a long story medium-short:
A new Cuban restaurant recently opened up in Tanuki-Kouji (the covered “arcade”/large-alley of youthful, fairly red-light district of Susukino) and the owner (a [...]
Remember Electra’s post about buying a kimono? Well here it is!
This picture was taken at Sagara-sensei’s house on 正月 (Shougatsu — New Year’s.) Specifically, this was what we call New Year’s Eve (Shougatsu seems to be 3 days so far as I can tell.) That night, we went to the shrine near Horohirabashi and did [...]
