My Hubby and I have finally started to sell our beloved Anime we’ve decided to keep 4 rare box sets each we can always ship them to Japan If we get to stay. I’ve been busy selling all of the general stuff we had like fishing gear and our mountain bikes.
The rest of our things can be sold last minute when we’ve saved up enough to set off for Japan everything we make from selling our things will go to our japan fund. It’s gonna take a lot of saving but we really hope to get there in the next 2 years at latest. We want to go more than ever now we’re both studying and and immersing our selves in all things japan to help with studying.
If your interested In any of our collection we’ve got from years of collecting please take a look…
The Japanese have some weird and wonderful drinks theres the traditional drinks like sake and green tea then theres the new weird types of drinks like Ramune. Ramune is a drink I’ve tried and really like theres lots of different flavors like Melon and Strawberry I would recommend them to everyone.
Sake is a favorite drink for me I’ve tried it both hot and cold its usually served hot in the winter months. high-grade sake is not drunk hot as it can ruin the flavor.
Green tea is a drink I have often but I’ve never tried the Japanese variety will be sure to be drinking often when in Japan.
Boss, a Japanese canned coffee never tried it but would like to available at many vending machines.
Asahi beer, I sometimes have when I go to Wagamama they also sell Ichi ban which is another Japanese beer which I’ve tried.
Just watched this very interesting episode of Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations, I have a passion for food and cooking and would love to visit some of he places he went in this episode. Hopefully In the near future I will get to taste the real food of Japan. I’ve been to quite a few Japanese restaurants in the UK now but I believe the experience and tastes would be a lot better if I were in Japan. I guess I just long to be there to see new things experience the culture and try the many different dishes Japan has to other.
Me and my hubby been watching Japan season on bbc 4. There’s been some really good shows I really liked the one about a 15 year old girl learning to be a Geisha in Kyoto. There was also a program about fishing in Japan which I found really interesting cause of my love of fishing. I watched Spirited Away which was on last weekend and there is also a program on that I missed but gonna watch the repeat that’s on tonight at 10pm it’s about a former businessman Naoki and his family who are struggling to get by after the economic crash of the early nineties. Here’s some videos for you all.
I found this video a while ago and I thuoght that I’d post it. I think it’s hilarious
I’ve been learning some more kanji today got to 172. My hubby’s way ahead of me though he’s learning sentences now. I think I’m picking it up though when I see labels, posters ect I recognise quite a bit of kanji and some hiragana. Just listening to japanese music as I write this I think it helps with the learning. We have a giant poster at home with all the kanji on it and i’m marking off the one’s that I’ve done so far It’s also good to see it everyday cause you remember them better and its great motivation
We’ve finally started to save for japan It’s gonna take a few years to save as we want to spend atleast a year there. Hopefully when we go my hubby might get a full time job and then we could live there as its been both our dream for a long time now although I’m scared stiff about getting on a plane I’ve never been on one in my life but when it comes around to it I think I’d cope. I really want to travel so it’s something I would have to get used to or It would get in the way of what I want to do in life a few other places I’d love to visit are China, America and hawaii. I can’t wait to go to Japan I love the culture the food I want to get away and experience new things meet new people you get tired of doing the same old thing over and over, I believe you have to have goals In life and hopefully I might reach some of mine and the ones I want with my hubby
I have to just say WOW to Sundays show of top gear you might be thinking what an earth has that got to do with a site about anime. Well as you know I like to talk about Japan the place I would one day like to live and after Sundays episode I want it even more. I love Japanese cars and top gear is one of my favourite shows.
If you didn’t see it they went to Japan to do a race and what a race Clarkson was in the new Nissan GT R while Hamster and May were on public transport and Japan has some of the best public transport around it was a very close race I’m not going to say who won for the people who haven’t seen it but boy was it close. I learned a few things about Japan while watching like they seem to have the most happy petrol station attendants in the world and they have very fancy man hole covers.
It also seems they don’t like it when people are on there mobiles on buses and trains I think that’s quite understandable really who likes to be sat next to someone screaming down the phone. I also seen some different food like these baby fish that you can eat as a snack. The places they went through were so breathtaking so much so I thought I’d put up the episode for you all to see enjoy
There has just recently been a new opening of one of the Wagamama Japanese restaurant’s near me, which i am so looking forwarding to going and trying some of the food especially wanting to try the Seafood ramen and some sake , will be going with my husband and also one of our friends if we can persuade him to go lol
The Kaisen Yakisoba that Danny Choo is having in the week in Tokyo 13 article looks so nice.
Will try to get some pictures up of the place and the food when i visit.
Untill then here is a really funny video on how one should eat sushi please don’t take it too seriously

I know the films been out a while now and it has to be my favorite movie ever I only bought the dvd about 3 weeks ago. Watched it again today and was thinking I would so love to live in Japan must go on holiday there within the next few years that’s my goal better get saving then me thinks!. My hubby wants to live in japan also I think he’d love all the cool gadgets and technology I would love to live in kyoto or near the coast I’d visit all the anime stores and I’d buy loads of plushes I especialy want the plush Scarlett Johansson had in the film It’s kind of like my totoro plush but it looks like some kind of bird I have’nt seen it on any site’s where I buy from maybe you can only get it from japan.
I realy love cute stuff I got a guinea pig last saturday he’s the cutest thing I kind of felt sorry for him nobody wanted him people where saying he looked manky I think he’s cool did’nt get to name him thought our friends came over when we got him and my hubby and them thought of his name we’ve called him CHUCK NORRIS! Well I suppose it fit’s, he was beating up all the other guinea pigs in the pet shop. I’ll post some pictures of him on my next post. Here’s a clip of my favorite film.
That is the question I’ve been asking myself, well me my hubby and are friend are going to a japanese festival in september. There’s gonna be all sorts of stuff there’s lots of stalls tradional geisha’s, japanese food stalls, martial arts show, samurai sword demonstration, anime and manga and much more. I’ve never been to an event like this before so it should be really good fun. There having a new event a cosplay competition you have to walk down a catwalk and you get photo’s took aswell you can also win a prize. I’ve never done anything like that in my life though but I’ve allways found it interesting I’d want a really good quality costume though but I read that to enter the competition you have to make your own costume.
I have to say that’s gonna be a hard task for me, i cant even sow. I was gonna buy a cosplay outfit from ebay and there was a website i found that do hand made costumes. I think i’ll have a go making my own i’ve got plenty of time to put one together if it turns out to look too scary to wear I’ll just wait till there’s an event where you dont need to have a costume you’ve made yourself. This video should give me some ideas for what outfit i can make hope you enjoy.
