Sunday 16 September 07
It's 8.30pm and I'm in my final ryokan. Aww it's not as nice as my previous ones. And again I don't have my own bathroom. This room is all cardboard walls and paper doors! I can hear every movement and sound from the room beside me. There is an African guy staying next door and he has this cute African music on LOL.
This morning, we left our first Kyoto ryokan. Then we had a whole day to do as we like. I went with Dave and Steve. First to Kyoto Tower mall, then we decided to travel in to the big shopping district. We went around together first, then split up. Man, I spent all day there! It was a very hot day and it rained on and off. The main problem was my feet hurt >_< Anyway I did a lot of souvenir shopping. I bought two yukata and other memorabilias.
I saw a couple of hot guys! Now I always think of my 'Mens Egg' magazine, instead of hosts. The rockstar image, with a tan and blond hair is definetly in. No guys came to talk to me though T.T
One thing about shopping, after you buy something, the salesperson says a formal thankyou and bows! XD how cute! And in one convenience store I went into, ALL staff in there greet any incoming customers. It was so entertaining.
The most strangest thing about the Japanese is definetly their resiliance to the heat. I'm wearing a tiny top and shorts, basically beach wear. And they are wearing jeans and jackets! For real! Even the young girls are covered up. It's weird! I saw a wedding today and the men wore black suits! In this heat wave o.o The wedding was at the train station too! They must have met there.
In the evening, I caught the subway home. I was a total lostie & this school girl helped me find my way. She practiced her English from school on me XD She was so cute, whenever she said something she thought was wrong, she covered her mouth and stared at me. She asked for my email too and I gave it to her^^ Maybe she can teach me about KatTun.
That's another thing! I went lookin for KatTun stuff & hardly found anything! There is no special stores about celebrities. I was very tempted to go back to Tokyo, Harajuku today, but instead I decided to explore Kyoto since I'm already here.
In a magazine, I found that there are hosts here somewhere! God knows where though, Kyoto seems much more difficult to find my way around in, compared to Tokyo.
TV is boring tonight. There is no dramas. Well there is a dog training program. Oh guesse what I saw this morning on tv. Japanese Sesame Street! And Elmo spoke in Japanese! He still had the same voice and same laugh.
Im back! It's past midnight now! Wow tonight turned out not bad! I met some hot Japanese boys! Four of them! One was really hot! After I finished writting this entry, I went on the ryokan's internet. I wrote to mom, then four Japanese boys walked in the door! Thank God they said 'hello!' In English too! So I quickly grabbed them as they were going up to their room! "Do you speak English?" and they said "A little bit". I was like "Let's take a photo!" and they were like "yeah!!" They got the hotel staff to take photos for us XD There was 5 cameras to go through!! Then I was a smartie and asked for their emails "To send the photos" they happily wrote their names and emails down yay. I gave them mine too oforse. I can't wait to bombard them with pix of my trip in Japan! I showed them a photo of me in kimono and they were like "oohhhh very beautiful!" XD yay! Their names were Yuki, Yukiya, Ayumu and Jin. They went upstairs and I stayed on the net.
Not long after that, the Intrepid group arrived back from dinner. I told them about my little adventure. We stood around in the hallway, talking for a long time. Then my Japanese boys came down wearing yukatas! I asked them where they were going and they said 'baths'. YAY they were going to be naked together! I said "Can I come along and take photos? XD Peter san was so amused! I was only joking though.
After they were gone, we all went to chill in David and Stephen's room. Including Pete, Hiro and me. Aww it was out last night together. We were all drinking our Kirin drinks and watching tv, Formula 1, but mostly we were just talking. David bought a thick hentai manga. It was really graphic and funny. We were all so entertained by it! At midnight, we kinda said our goodbyes and went to bed.
