Japan Time

Life in Japan.

I went to Shizuoka yesterday and wandered around for a while. Here are some "unique to Japan" things I came across:

I used to buy these same candles in the States...for about three bucks. Sigh.

Coca-Cola with green tea flavor.

This has to be one of the things I dislike most about living in Japan. Election time is coming up, so there are many vehicles with shouting people telling citizens to vote for their respective candidates. They're incredibly loud and obnoxious. Shouting vehicles are used for all kinds of things: advertising food, warning people that it's dry season so be careful of any open fires, blah, blah, blah. I've been woken up many mornings by these annoyances.

I have no idea.

These are different kinds of bath bubbles...yeah - mayonnaise and ketchup bath bubbles...

...and of course, what would a ketchup or mayonnaise bath be without a bread sponge?

Were you trying to advertise AEON in your pics of the election vehicles?
