I am being hospitalized for a minor operation, but this being Japan, where we all have comprehensive health insurance, they keep you until they are sure that there are no complications. I will not have internet access so I will not be sending any posts during my hospitalization. I will continue posting after I am released. Please check back in about a week and a half.

This is a standard Japanese mailbox. They are always red and have the post office mark, a T-shape with a line above it, in white.

I have mentioned a number of times that there are three supermarkets near my apartment. Sunny is the cheapest, Coop is in the middle and Halloday is at the high end. Halloday has very good vegetables but all of the prices are a bit higher that at the other two. As I said, we consider both cost and quality to decide what to buy at each.
Did you read the sign? I can do nothing but laugh at the slogan Amusement Food Holes For Better Live. I have no idea what it means. My wife always points out that, as long as there is English like this, there will be jobs for English teachers.
