This week's happenings...

It's been a pretty busy week, with purikura and hanging out with friends. Lots of fun!

On Wednesday, I went to a new izakaya with Aya and Michiko (after purikura, of course).

It was a yakitori izakaya, so there were lots of varieties of meat on a stick.

This menu has more information than you'll ever need to know about what you're eating, like the calorie amount and how long it took to prepare it.

Shiitake mushrooms


Sausage - with chicken tail and liver in the background

Pickled eggplant and cucumber

Me with some kind of radioactive-looking drink and chicken heart yakitori
And dessert! Sweet purple potato ice cream with a type of french toast.
Last night, I went to hear a local band of gaijin play with Aya and Yu. The band, Alien, consists of guys from Scotland, Canada, the States and England who all live in the area. They play a lot of 70s classic rock, so I really like going to their gigs.

After a long week of work, it was great to relax with my co-workers and listen to good music!
