Random things from Japan and Korea

Tsutaya books.

I bought a bunch of books–comic books to be precise–to help me get more practice reading Japanese. There were quite a few of them but the sales associate was kind enough to wrap them all up for me. I didn’t feel like taking a photo of every single one but the above gives you a pretty good idea of what they look like. I tried to select books with furigana so I can use them to help expand my kanji vocab which is pitifully small… I also decided to grab two novels to give myself a concrete goal to work towards. One of them is a novel that I know is also available in English (The Little Prince) which I figure will be helpful for when I get stuck and the other is just one who’s cover I thought was pretty not that I can see it anymore now that it’s all wrapped up…

    SPAO backpack in my favourite colour.

    Lots and lots of socks. So many socks. Too many socks.

    I couldn’t stop buying them and ended up with well over 20 new pairs. The Gudetama ones aside, they were only like 55 cents each!!!!!

    Plastic Gudetama envelope, and another view of the Holika Holika Cushion Refills.
