    ... longevity. I gave it a try and haven't encountered any side effects yet.
    We stopped for dinner at a yakitori bar, which basically means small chicken and beef kebabs. On the way back to our room, after a little searching, we found the cheap sake. Then as we'd been having trouble finding a Japanese looking bracelet that didn't cost loads, I decided to buy a few cheap straps of material and try to make one myself.
