So I am now the owner of my own little Subaru Vivio supercharged might I add. I also had to drive it a few different places which was scary mostly because I have no idea where I am going. Today I will attempt to go to the train station and back without getting lost……. my car is about the size of a red-bull can or coffee can, but it putts along just fine. The shakken or road certificate expires in February so I am thinking of buying a newer used car, if that makes sense.
Other than buying a car I did some futon shopping and bought some school clothes, I am now on the hunt for school shoes because I cannot wear shoes that I wear outside, inside any of my schools. Word on the street is Takasaki is getting……… a COSTCO!! Hahaha good for me so I can get a few American items I want. It’s a big deal here so I am excited for it.
We have a big fireworks festival coming up as well so there will be parties. I am planning a trip to Guam in March or earlier, that is a popular vacation spot for Japanese people in my area at least. Hopefully I can make it to Okinawa too!.
My host mom teaches English too and has a school at our house called Apple Kids, but today she teaches nursery school so I am going with her… this will no doubt be the cutest day ever 🙂 all adorable Japanese children.
Pictures are soon to come later today.
