New Place

It's been two weeks since I moved in a new place and still this mess... I finally bought a fridge. I have to buy a laundry machine too. Moving is so much pain in Japan.

Jogging in Inokashira Park at Night

Now I have like 30 seconds access to the park, I go jogging at night (mostly walking for now). I have to be very careful so I don't stomp on them. Too many beetles and cicadas to avoid killing them without paying close attention.

66th Anniversary of End of WW2

August 15th is the noisiest day every summer and it's the party day for non-Japanese self-proclaimed patriots. I was too busy enjoying my lunchtime walk so I missed their "performance".

Tartar Sauce

Rice one bowl 150 yen, Rice half 1oo yen, Miso soup 50 yen, Chicken cutlet 80 yen, Japanese style fried chicken 2 pieces 80 yen, Tartar sauce 120 yen. Wth is tartar sauce so expensive? Isn't it supposed to be free?

Smoking in Japan

Very mild warning specific to pulmonary emphysema. It doesn't say anything about cancer, birth defects, passive smoking or anything. Law makers smoke so this takes time to change.

Pepsi Carribean Gold

White sapote flavored pepsi. I had never heard of sapote and believe most Japanese don't know what it is. My guess is they just mix random flavors and then later they go like: "Hey, this tastes like sapote I tried in Mexico." "Oh, really? Then let's name it Pepsi Sapote." "But I don't think Japanese know sapote." "What about pepsi gold from the color?" "We want to reserve that name for special occasion." "Hey, I watched Pirates of Caribbean last night, let's add Carribean in front". Voila! I already forgot how it tastes like.

Melon Ice Cream

Melon flavored ice cream. It was my favorite as a kid. The container didn't have this perfect round shape back then and looked way cheaper.

Gin Rum Vodka

How come I didn't know these exist?

Beer Since 1769

Since 1769, really? I thought beer has much longer history. Wiki says the Sumerians were drinking beer...
