... learned it in school. You can see it on youtube, just search "Japanese stretch song" or "radio taiso". Some family members even stood up to do it as well. Everyone knows it.
Stretches over, announcements finished, marching complete, GAMES BEGIN! First up is the 100m run for girls. Next, the 200m run for boys. Not much to say on this, running is running.

I could see it was a torrential downpour outside, so I had a couple of cups to take in the experience and to wait out the rain. Irritatingly, there was ...

That cafe was creepy. Quite large with private booths. I had to show my ID before entering. It made me feel like I was doing something wrong. I got rid of my growing coin collection though. The bill for an hour came ...
