My life, stories and shenanigans from Japan


I finally (finally) got a host family today.

I have three host brothers, one of which is going to be an exchange student in the United States (I think. I couldn’t quite tell from the e-mail i got)

I’m going to be going to an all-boys school in Tokyo.

I’m going to be living in Kawasaki, between Tokyo and Yokohama.  Which is famous for it’s…festivals.  I’ll put it like that.  I’ll give you a hint and say the girls below aren’t riding a horse.

If you can figure out what the picture is, good for you. If you can’t, you should either think harder or just stop thinking about it all together.

EDIT: Image has been cropped due to a surprisingly high number of complaints (not from blog comments, from elsewhere).  Click on the image to see a gallery of images from last year’s event.  May not be work safe
