When I saw the word janken, it was like looking at a Dutch word. It means to howl. And bicycles are everywhere overhere as well! The only way to go somewhere and be sure to find a ‘parking’ place!


it sounds like there are so many great things about japan. you are going to miss it terribly, i imagine.
i can't wait to read more!


Ha - D and I use janken all the time, usually for who has to do a nasty job like change a dirty nappy on the baby or clean up a mess. Works like a charm :-)


Argh, I'm going to miss my bike when I leave Japan. And the nice thing is even when you make the horrible mistake of leaving your key or something else with your bike, you come back and it's still there. I did that a few times when I was hurrying off to class or into the grocery store. In fact, I dropped my umbrella somewhere around town and someone saw it and recognized it as mine and brought it back to my dorm before I even noticed that I didn't have it. I'm guessing it's not like that everywhere, but my idiocy hasn't been exploited yet, so I'm thankful.
