hard? of course not! haha life is normal as usual same as anyone else. The people at my congregation here are very warm and friendly, just like a family. Today they actually made me Nanbe for dinner, it was so good, but if you need further proof he or she can talk to me

To be honest, I abhor seafood

But it will be great to be able to catch up with my friends and enjoy some of the other delicacies hailing from the east coast (or any food in general that I can't get here)

I'll be there on May 31st onwards for 2 weeks. I know it's rainy season but it's the only time I get off and I don't mind the weather (it'll be just like England, constantly raining )

If anyone is there during that time, come meet us if you like. :3
Arghh I would have loved to!

But unfortunately I'll be there in July so I'd be a little late.
Maybe next time! XD

Oh Oh, by the way...

If anyone here will be in Tokyo from the 22nd to the 28th of July 2011, and want to have a little meet up with me and my friend then feel free to post here or send me a PM!
On my last trip I went on a day out with an American family who were staying in the same hotel as me, and I had a great time! (I'll be 18 and my friend 19 at that time in case it makes a difference lol)

I'm not going anytime soon, but it's alright cause there're many other places I'd rather go first. Still, I wouldn't be refusing to go if the opportunity came along, but it won't so blah.


everything is relative and contradictory ~

Your word is good enough
Gotta love Japanese food-hospitality huh?!

What kind of nabe did you have?
I just ate kimchi-nabe tonight, love it, cani(crab)-nabe is awesome too!

If you haven't had it yet, ask for sukiyaki, or omg kuhsikatsu!!
Take the train into Umeda, then get on the loop line till Tennoji, the best kushikatsu places are ALL there for some reason >< it should only take about 45mins from downtown Kyoto, go for the Hankyu line ot save money, JR for speed
