In all honesty, not much happened this weekend. I only had one day off since I worked on Sunday, though I did do a little grocery shopping. I even bought some sake, but it turned out to be the worst sake I've had in Japan. Most other sakes I've tried were smooth and tasted a bit sweet. This one felt like it was burning my throat after taking a sip. I have to get some advice on decent sake before I try to make another purchase. I don't want to make that mistake again.
On Monday, I had a bike ride around town. I went from downtown to the station to the outskirts, where all the really big chain stores are. Didn't really buy much, just a couple CDs I've been trying to find for two months! Seriously, I thought they'd be easier to find in Japan, seeing as they are some of the most well-known shamisen players in the country, but I guess shamisen isn't as popular as I thought it was... 残念。(T_T)
It was at a big thrift/recycle store too, so the two CDs were probably worth the equivalent of... I'd say $13 or $14. Not bad, but I guess they could have been a bit cheaper. At least the condition is like new. There was a ton of other cool stuff in there too. For maybe 1000¥ or so I could have bought an old style Playstation. And for 2100¥ they had a classical guitar which, while scratched up pretty bad, still sounded pretty good. When I can think of a way to transport such a thing to my apartment I might procure it.
Well, I do have work today, so I think I'm going to get started with breakfast and then get myself ready to entertain and teach some kids. And adults, though I don't do nearly as much dancing for them. (^-^) じゃね〜！
