I went to the supermarket (supaa) today and watermelon is 1198 yen. That's $12!!!
My shopping experience was greatly enhanced by 2 things: 1) noticing the video screens with commercials hooked to the shelves in supermarkets and thinking about how silly that was and 2) remembering the Japanese word for "apple" so I could order fresh juice from the little stand. So delicious.
I also found out my rice cooker sings the abc song when it's gearing up. What a treat.

I also spent the better part of my evening searching for an internet café in Tenjin. I look forward to being an expert on this city.
