Supermarkets #3


Not technically a supermarket, but Nitori (ニトリ) is a Japanese furniture store. Not as colorful and fun as IKEA, but still a good place to roam around and pick up some products not available at IKEA.

Just like this blanket!

Has sleeves and a pocket. You can even wear it while you’re on the sofa reading! How cool is that?! What would you put in that pocket?

There’s nothing covering your behind. Make sure to keep that warm this winter too. ^^.

English Teachers

Ever thought of coming to Japan as an English teacher? You might just want to watch this mini series to prepare yourself for the perils that lie ahead. ^^.

What I found amazing about the show is that you get to see Nagoya too. The fact that they got the support of the local film commission and police department to shoot outdoors is pretty impressive. To do any video outdoors in Tokyo would require great stealth and guerrilla tactics.

Th story centers around teachers at a local English school BeYes – why does it sound like BS… You might just recognize a few faces in the show. There’s Jonathan Sherr from the movie My Darling is a Foreigner. And for some reason, if you’ve been watching trainvision (screens in certain trains that bombard you with advertisements after advertisements), the Roberto is advertising Samsung’s Galaxy S and Galaxy Tab for Docomo.

Episodes aren’t too long. They come in under 10 minute bite-sized pieces. Check out other episodes in the series at their YouTube channel.
