Konichi wa. Si yor nara. Do I need to know anymore Japanese language?
I don't like sushi or sashimi. Will I starve to death in Japan? Maybe I can survive on tempura. Soup for breakfast? I don't think so. Hopefully our friend in Japan has a toaster and we can toast some bread for our breakfast. We will have our own Vegemite. Except R does not like Vegemite. I will have Vegemite on my person.
Shinkansen is spelt with an e or an a in the middle. Bullet train is easier but not as exotic.
Must learn the names of the islands, at least the main ones. When asked, main island will no longer do. Aussie people seem to know the names of Japanese islands.
While I am quite happy to show my bits to anyone who wants to see, them, do I want to display them publicly at an onsen?
Beautiful cherry blossom trees will be quite ugly when we are there.
Must find out exactly what Miso is. I think it is not healthy.
Trying to work out a head currency conversion. Add 1/4 to our dollar? 1000 = 1.25?
I have had contact with a Japanese person. After some time my head was nodding up and down a lot and I was saying something like Hi rather a lot. My version of it was more like the Scottish Aye which I am known to use often enough.
Early days, plenty of time. I am now officially slightly excited.
R and I were educated tens of thousands of miles away from each other, but we both learnt about Mount Fuji at school, and so we must see it.
