Hi y’all! How are you doing today? 😉
For the longest time, I really didn’t feel like doing a post. Why? Because the more I told myself “I have to do this”, it became more like a “chore” where I had to do. But because today’s sunny, that motivates me to do it a little bit more than when it’s not. 😉
One of the first things we saw at the airport; a vending machine. You see this technically anywhere you look, it’s quite scary. (I’ve never seen as many vending machines in the US before!) Every few blocks you see one; crazy, I tell you!
Lots of little shops in the airport.
Outside the airport. One of my favorite scenes to see in Japan.
Their street lights are different from the US’.
Guess what this fancy, bright building is? It’s a casino (pachinco)!! There are quite a lot of these in Japan, too. (and they’re so big and fancy!) 😯
A typical-sized gas station that we passed by as we were driven home. It’s pretty big, isn’t it?
And once we arrived to our grandma’s house, I had to snap some pictures around the house for all of you 😉
That’s my brother standing to show how narrow the stairway is.
The room where my mom and I slept. (with lots of orbs, I see) 😉
The “living room” right by our room. (again, with lots of orbs)
And the downstairs living room. Trust me, this place is SMALL!
Look how “big” the bathroom is! It’s length is from my middle finger to a little bit past my elbow (by about 2 in.) Small, I tell you!!
The traditional way to put your futon back. (and out) It’s not a closet, but a “oshiire” (literally translates to “push and put in a/the place”. Makes sense.)
And this is how close the house is to the house next door. (it’s like “right there”) You can hear if the person’s speaking loud enough. That’s how close the houses are. (this was from our room)
How’s Japan so far? Is it different? Small? Surprising? All? Tell me what you think!
More pics to come on the next post! (post #2 – landscapes/stores, and post #3 – food) I will make more posts if I need to, but this is what I have in mind. 🙂
So these are it for now, and thanks for coming! 🙂
