A day full of Japanese culture

This blog is dedicated to Rolando, and Sean (they have the same return policy here as well bro)

Living in the city, there's plenty of American influence to be found. Mc Donalds, Starbucks (there are 2 right a cross the street from each other, I keep meaning to take a picture), Kinko's, etc. But drive out into the countryside, and you find something truly surreal:

Everything from the brands to layout is EXACTLY the same. The only difference is the signs are all written in Japanese.

I went with my friend Hanaka who lived in America for 4 years. She speaks perfect English, but speaks in Japanese 99% of the time to me to help me learn. I wish I was that nice.

Even the pizza is the same size. You could never find pizza this big at a normal Japanese restaurant.

I was home for a few glorious minutes.
