Went to the Kanto Matsuri in Akita two years ago and it was amazing!!

The Tanabata Matsuri in Sendai is pretty cool too.

Hanagasa is okay, but I prefer the festival in Shinjo with the floats like the ones in the Nebuta Festival.

It was pretty funny watching it on the news last night. I didn't know squirrels could move so fast!

It's what the teenage girls like, so they're sticking with it!

I'm not going to bag them when Japan is doing the same thing, both with girl groups and so many 'Johnny's' groups. >_<

I wouldn't follow the advice in the last part of the story.

Get there early to try and avoid the crowds!!

Then go to the Trick Art Museum and whatever else.

I don't get it. Next we'll see sleeve extensions for short sleeves blouses and leg extensions for shorts so people don't have to show their arms and legs?

The sleeve extensions exist too!! Older ladies especially love them.

Posted in: Japan's amazing snow monsters on the prowl See in context

The author must have a very sensitive nose. I've stayed up there a few times and never smelled the rotten stench of sulfur! Exaggerate much?

Anyway, these 'monsters' are an amazing sight to see!

7 - If I'm visiting home, I always eat with my family. 10 - I still write letters sometimes. And I love receiving them! 18 - My parents have two phones....and one is a dial type! 25 - Or a smack with the wooden spoon....

I don't know about #17....most people in Adelaide didn't seem to enjoy walking on the tarmac to get into the plane, especially in bad weather!

Posted in: Six things that foreigners feel are overpriced in Japan See in context

I thought alcohol was pretty cheap here, if you buy it at a shop. Eg: About 1000yen for a bottle of Smirnoff vodka. I think that's about a third of the price of it in Australia.

Don't buy fruit much these days...because of the expense.

Yes, movie tickets are a rip-off.....I guess that's why most people download these days.

When I went to the USA for a visit, I was shocked at how low the prices were for skin creams, makeup, medicine and stuff. So lucky! I don't really know about Japan as I just use Nivea products. I still think perfume in Japan is fairly cheap though.

I think meat is fairly cheap here....if you don't buy fatty Japanese beef. Breast chicken is half the price of what it costs in Australia....yet it's difficult to find a cheap whole chicken unless it's Christmas time!

And yeah, the DVD thing....but I'm not complaining....I am stocking up on foreign (ie. USA) DVDs from Amazon.jp. They are so cheap if they're not new releases!

Toilet paper and tissues are cheap here at least! :)

How is it private when they are out on a public street?

I love looking at what people are drawing when they're outside like this.
