Just to let everyone know, the reason for the so far complete halt in updates is because i’ve had computer issues.
I have temporarily lost all of my photos from Japan, and it’s taking much longer to sort than i’d anticipated.
Hopefully I shall have them back soon, and then I shall start putting photos up again, and maybe telling a few stories or giving some tips to anyone planning to visit Japan in the future :)
Thanks for your patience, and apologies for the technical issues.

In honour of the Hobbit, which comes out this week in England and which I am really looking forward to! :)

Oooh I actually have a photo of the table flipping game too! Wasn’t sure if I did or not. But I do. So here you go :)

Table Flipping Game! This is an awesome arcade game we found in Tokyo and which already has a fair few youtube videos dedicated to it and is quite well known.
So of course… it was halloween and we were a little squiffy and we had a go and filmed it. I know this might not be the kind of thing you guys follow me for and it falls into the category of personal interest rather than general appeal, but I hope you get a giggle out of it at least.
I can’t remember where this particular arcade is i’m afraid… but there are some good ones that do have the table flipping game opposite sunshine city in Ikebukuro, in the same building as the izakayas i’m always harping on about.
The commentator by the way is Blake, my favourite Hawaiian who was here last term and who we miss dearly.

First time i’ve seen a NomiHoudai sign in Romanji.
Nomihoudai is essentially an “all you can drink” deal. You pay for a set number of hours and you can drink as much as you want from a set drink menu as you like.
There are normally rules like you have to buy at least two dishes of food each as well, but it’s often well worth it if you’re planning to have a heavy night of boozing.
The cheapest one’s i’ve found thus far, are opposite Sunshine City in Ikebukuro. Highly recommend trying it if you’re visiting Japan.

My dear followers! Especially the new ones!!
I hope you will accept this apology in the shape of some adorable polar bear bread! For a little while my posts may slow right down to a near stop, and this is for two reasons.
1) it’s the end of my term and close to the end of my year in Japan! This means manymanymany essay deadlines, exams, packing and official document sorting out needs to be done, which means a very busy next couple of weeks for me!
2) My laptop is, for lack of a better word, FUCKED! It freezes every 30 seconds or so for no good reason, WHATEVER i’m doing. This post alone has taken nearly 15 minutes to complete, and so I can’t post as much as I normally do :(
I am very sorry about this! Hopefully it won’t be too long before I can start flooding this place with photos and stories again :) Thanks so much for following and I hope you are enjoying this blog.
