|I went on a little vacation|
Time to ramble for a bit.
About a month ago, I traveled to Japan. I remember being fascinated by the country as a kid, mainly because of all the talk about it in the videogame magazines I used to read. I went through a small and mild infatuation with anime and manga mostly as a preteen, but didn't retain anything other than a mild interest after that point.
Still, 'twas the land of vidyagames, and I went. Sort of.
I was on vacation with the family. We spent most of the time at Disneyland, not the most Japanese place in Tokyo, and only ended spending a few hours in Ueno Park one day and a little time in Akihabara on another. In Akihabara I just visited Yodobashi Camera and an arcade. Fairly interesting, but I skipped the Maid Cafes.
Anyway, here's Pokemon Go at Disneyland.

That's awesome that you got to visit Japan! My wife and I hope to visit there someday soon. In the long term, I might even want to move there, but first I need to get my teaching degree... and learn Japanese. Two big hurdles, but I'm working on the first one already!

That's cool Jason! You can be an English teacher in Japan without knowing the language, one of the other foreign teachers I work with in Korea just moved from teaching there. All you need is a four year degree of any kind to teach, so I think if you actually had a teaching degree you'd find a job very easily. Of course, once you're there you can begin truly intensive study of the language if you're so inclined.

Good on you for taking a vacation, and that's a cool looking latte! I've also thought about taking a vacation there some day, or at the very least take a trip back to Okinawa, for memory lane's sake. But, you know, finances and stuff.

You lived in Okinawa?

As a young kid. My Dad was stationed there, and I was there up until 1997. Haven't been back since.
