Japanese 祭り Matsuri Festival

We went to a Matsuri yesterday. It wasn’t as hot as usual and we had a lot of fun. They did lots of dances and performances and sold a lot of oishii (yummy) food!

I don’t even know what this is called in English. This was around our house too… Has anyone ever seen one if these? I heard they can attack, too.

Spiders are gross!

I found this spider behind our house yesterday, so gross! It’s a baby spider and will get as big as my palm… Ew….

Germany tribute

Again: congratulations Germany!!!

Germany’s dream fulfilled.

I got up so early to watch the game. It was streamed 4am so i was super tired. But it was worth it! Germany won! Congratulations. The Argentinian players were super good. I think Germany had luck with that goal.

This is cruel reality here- haha. Usually one or two out of 10 in public restrooms are squatty potties in Japan. At the beach there are hardly any western toilets and if they are they are usually gross. But I know a lot of Japanese who don’t want to use Asian toilets. It just takes practice I guess.

Watching soccer at 1am at night

I watched the Germany- France game this morning at 1am online even though I was super tired. I woke up at 9 so I got a good night of 5h sleep still. That’s pretty good! The World Cup is going on right now and I gotta watch it at night since I’m in Japan now.
