7-11 x Star Wars

December 21, 2015

Convenience stores (コンビニ; kombini) in Japan will often feature goods from popular series or other entertainment. I’ve seen displays of Attack on Titan, Hello Kitty, and Yokai Watch. With Star Wars: The Force Awakens having opened in theaters, currently 7-11 stores carry merchandise from the movie. Notice the left side of the display. Consumers may purchase […]

Summer Days in Japan

June 30, 2011

It’s true that summers in Japan are sweltering. In July, it’ll rain for a month. Sure, sit inside in the air conditioning all day. Waste your summer away!

I’ve been extra busy with work and social activities! That’s good, right? Ii desho? […]

When first stepping out of the Akasakamitsuke subway station, my husband and I spotted Hooters right across the street, the orange “HOOTERS” glowing at the Tokyo Plaza. The area was really nice and classy feeling. We had never been to this area before, but the Hooters definitely drew us in. I think I might go […]
