日本: Oh the Things You'll Buy

Yukata

i: i also got an angry daruma man, a large kokeshi, 2 kimono + obi for $20, wood tea plates... and i think that's it. all the things.
j: i've got a lot of googling to do. kokeshi? kimono + obi?


I did indeed go to Japan and buy all the things. There are no things left to buy. The shopping in Japan is good. Sencha and tabi and name-engraved chopsticks and Engrish notebooks, oh my!

Also, how much English can a person speak without actually speaking English?

Except those sock thingys have always weirded me out a little.

Everything your brought looks awesome. Especially the clothes. I really want to try them out even though I don't think I'll ever have the opportunity to wear them.
