PostSubject: Some japanese sayings   Wed Jun 01, 2011 8:39 am

It's pretty hard to read under the pictures so I'll put them here.

Interesting things told by the tour bus guide.

Parasite Single - Single women in their 30s or 40s who live at home and choose to be single. they want to buy brand bags and go on nice trips. They don't want
to raise kids and have that sort of chains. They are too comfortable with their lives to get married. Also he said they sort of only help their parents
when things get bad, and their parents are happy to have their daughters with them. It is a sort of parasitic relationship. He said guys in Japan are single
because women are like this, and they are single not by choice.

Wet Leaves - is how to say if you are cleaning your yard wet leaves are hard to clean up, harder than dry leaves. Men who retire after working at the company
for a long time are called wet leaves. It is like, they have no hobbies while they work because they work so much. And they normally live the guy says
this sort of in house separation where the man has his own life and the woman has her life raising the kid. They almost never interact and he says this is normal.
Because even if the guy wants to drink and hang out with his wife he can't because he'll get passed over if people think he isn't putting his work first.
But after this man retires he has nothing to do, 24/7. So when his wife goes out to get groceries he says, "I'm free let me come with you." He is like a wet leaf
who is suddenly hard to get to go away. He's the retired man sticking to the wife. He says the wife doesn't quite like it because she isn't used to spending
all day with him so she is suffocated.

Narita Airport Divorce - senior citizen couple or older couple. They go to the airport to send their daughter off on her honeymoon after she is married. When the
airplane leaves after they watch it take off together the wife turns to the husband and says now that my daughter is gone, will you give me half your pension, and
I will go live my life how I want now. Japanese wife is angry at heart. No honey or darling, no I love you, after they get married they are treated just like a mother
by their husbands. Instead of honey can I have some tea, the woman's name becomes, get me tea, get me beer, is dinner ready.
So the wife says, now that I have no daughter to take care of I will enjoy my life wihtout you.

He says many western women who marry japanese men divorce quickly because they get lonely and don't get that i love you etc.

He says women don't want to marry and younger people marry farmer families and live in agriculture so men getting wives in other asian countries have become popular.

During the tour around the shogun's resident it was sort of cool. There were hidden rooms where body guards hide. And he explained why they have really long trails of
trousers in their clothing. Because if someone tries to get up and assassinate the shogun someone can step on his pants and it makes it harder for him to run.
Also the shogun eats in this really private place of beautiful women, but he could never have warm soup because the kitchen was so far away.

Actually the sad thing he says is about the war and the idea of shame in Japan. How mother's used to give their son knives to take with them to the bathroom in case
they got taken hostage the son has to kill himself. He says after war this mentality changed. He said htere is this guy in Guam who was in a cave for 30 years. And
he refused to believe war had ended. Even when this guy around the place from Japan a sort of communications officer told him war ended 30 years ago he didn't
believe the guy and he couldn't surrender because of pride. Even when brother came over and said hello, it is your brother, the war is over come out he didn't believe him.
Then his mother wrote him a letter saying war is over come home, still he said, I don't believe you. Then finally they got the superior officer of that soldier and he said
war is over. And then the soldier comes out and says yes sir. That guy now teaches young people how to live simple lives. He is like 90 years old or something.

Anyway ... sleepy Sad
Girl's generation is on so many commercials on television right now. Selling lipton teas and etc.

Yeah even though families get subsidies for two children most people don't have. Though I can understand because seriously, I have never seen so many apartments
in such a close proximity.

I don't know it's pretty overwhelming sometimes.

Yawn, my grandma doesn't let me sleep in and she only gets like 5 hours of sleep >.>
And i've been watching parks and recreation so hahaha, so funny seriously wow.

you dont watch a lot of animes do you? where the main character has a day off school (which is always sunday it seems) are woken up by relatives
and they never sleep pass noon.

lol at least it aint worst, cause first time I attended a anime con, it was only going for 3 days, but it was 3 days of sleep deprivation.
I literally had to wake up at 5am every morning take a shower and get ready. Takes a 1 hour bus to the anime con cause my friends wanted to go there early to line up
for some events and when we get there and i swear there was only like what 2 ppl maybe 5?. I had to take a nap on the bus with bunch of ppl cosplayed around me.
By the time we get back from the anime con its passed midnight <-- and for some whatever reason i dont feel sleepy at all so I stay up for a few hours and sleep for 1-3 hours.
My friends had to come to my house and wake me up cause I wouldnt answer my cell.

I will never forget those 3 days. Tired as **** but at least the 2nd day Our team won the CoD4 tourny =D weeeee.......

PostSubject: japan japan   Sat Jun 04, 2011 9:18 am

actually I don;t mean this in like a wrong way. Actually in hiroshima people were pretty nice, well some of them.
It's hard to say but it's a really different culture from America, like hard to say exact points but all the crowds and stuff sort of
make me tired. We normally take taxi but Hiroshima is supposed to have really good bus/shuttle system, but it was so insane.
It's like you have to push your way on, but some people were pretty nice and helped us find the festival but yeah.

All the uniformity sort of is beginning to creep me out. Like how the store people just keep repeating the same thing, I don't know.
Or like how everyone wears like the same suits or same school outfit.

Starting to sort of I don't know get to my head.

But there are some really pretty rivers.

Anyway - I forgot what I was going to say.

Oh each city has been really different, like Osaka, from Kyoto, Kyoto from Hiroshima and even smaller places like Arashiyama, Himeji, and this smaller place
where the izakaya was.

I sort of like HIroshima so far. Has a very unique culture though.

Anyway -

Tokyo is last for me on this trip, I'm trying to make it a priority to go to a maid cafe ha, but I feel like I'll find a bad one and be sort of let down >.>

"When in Rome, do as the Romans do."

Shopping has probably been the #1 disappointment just because in so many ways Western stores have taken over.
Not only like food places, but also like a lot of items now.
Well I don't think you care about makeup but yeah almost all American brands now.
Clothes too, and like they do have their own styles but yeah ... their own clothes is ridiculously prices and American clothes even worse.

I mainly just bought a crap load of icecream, keychains, and notebooks.
Trying to get like stuff I can't get anywhere.

Has there been anything ...
hm ...

I don't know they even have my specific contact cleaner here and everything.

Have I bought or saw anything ... well Akihabara in terms of computer stuff was pretty impressive, you can get any small part.
But I'm not really into that sort of computer building stuff adn you can get basically a lot in America.

I might get this like cool talking clock but I'm sure they have those in America.

I guess the hardest thing is wanting to get special items but seeing you can get almost everything in US.
Also like the anime stuff, basically after conversion the 40-45 dollar shirts at the Japan Towns in U.S. are about the same price.

I might just get some pretty not special stuff from Tokyu Hands ha the normal department stores with like running clocks and
I wish I could this cool pillow but yeah.

I love the conveince stores ... those are pretty good places to shop ha.
And you can live off the samples at the depachikas, department store basements.
I had like 8 pieces of cake the other day, and at another place this soup wtih like meatballs, fishcakes etc. in one sample.

Omg, 1000yen for a bunch of grapes, I saw 7000 for two mangoes.
Even if they're the most delicious mangoes I wouldn't pay that.

That's relatively disappointing. If I were ever to go, I'd probably just enjoy getting to see things with my own eyes.

My gf goes back to Japan almost every summer and keeps asking me what I want from there.
If only I understood Japanese, it'd be cool to get games before they come out here, but I don't so that won't do.
Like you said, anything I really want, I could just get here already.
Last summer, I had her get me Volume 1 of Trigun. Maybe I'll ask for Volume 2 even though I can't read them ha.

I thought you were cutting on the sweets and here you are eating all the free sweets you can find? o.O

Haha, yes.
Too bad she can't bring you back soft serve, cause that stuff is delicious overseas.
But I'm home.
