I went for a stroll in Hiroo (pronounced like ‘oh,’ not ‘oo’ as we think of it in English) and had coffee at a nice European style cafe before class the other day. Hiroo is a popular place for foreigners to live. Its very close to Roppongi, another such place, and both areas are full of foreign and foreign style cafes and restaurants. Hiroo also has a grocery store with all kinds of foreign import foods and drinks that are near impossible to find elsewhere around here. I think it was the highest number of non-Japanese people I’ve ever seen in Japan…outside of the airport and my dorm…ha.
Lovely no? We’re averaging around 80 degrees here now, weather-wise. I’m trying to enjoy it without complaining since I have probably never experienced such a sunny spring in my entire life.
