Hooray, for the first time I was able to sleep witouht a disruption! Accordingly refreshed I started into this Saturday with…suprise, suprise…riding my bike to Seiyu Supermarkt. I felt like eating toast with cheese, ham & eggs and drinking hot chocolate for breakfast. Everything was horrible expensive, but that’s just how it is over here.
At half past one p.m. I met with Sarah and Anna to check some of the Second-Hand-Bookshops and we rode our bikes south, a direction we had not been to so far. OH MY GOD, it’s been simply gorgeous! Second-Hand-Books in Japan means manga, manga, manga. There were tons of them, all in very good shape and so cheap. Most of them cost only 105 Yen, at Meiroku there are even plenty of completed series you can buy in a bunch (like CLAMP manga or Fruits Basket *drool*). Here on the picture you can see „Book off“ which seems to be a chain all over Japan. There I also bought a Hello Kitty Amigurumi book. Kawaii!
There were quite a few manga by Chiho Saito, my favourite manga artist (she drew „Revolutionary Girl Utena“), and…now grab a chair or you will faint…some of them were only 10 Yen. 10!!!!! That’s 7 Cent in Germany!!!!!!!!!!!!
The Hello kitty book is for many crocheted Kitties and some knitted goods like scarfs, hats and bags.
Of course I have brought my crochet needles with me to Japan, so all I have to do is buy some yarn in the 100 Yen shop, where else? XD
With all the shopping again I didn’t take too many pictures but I plan to make some bike tours for photography only.
Though it is not allowed I secretly took a picture in the Domy supermarket. Look *lol* Diapers for dogs…damn, that’s crazy! Do we have those in Germany, as well?
Ah, I feel so good. For shopping cute stuff and cheap manga Japan is the best place on earth. In combination with some new friends and three rusty, red bicycles everything seems to turn out well!
After only one week I have relaxed so much an laughed much more than those two years before. My family is with me everyday via MSN and i don’t feel lonely at all (though I do miss b. of course -.-). One certain sign of me feeling happy? There’s a new Jas & Josh-story on my mind…but we will see!Alles Liebe,
