Daily Life in Japan

Hi Ladies & Guys!
To my faithful followers.
Thank you for reading my blog!
I’m really unsure of what to name this post, as my blog usually focuses on Travel information on Japan.
(And also, the rest of the world)
 
And though I’ve been really really busy lately, I’m squeezing this in whatever free time that’s available to me.
To do something different.
 
So anyway, this post is gonna be more focused on : A Japanese perspective on daily life, my personal life.
 (Sorry, no names are gonna be mentioned here due to privacy concerns.)
A really good friend of mine, known him for a long time!
We share the same clothes, sometimes!
Always helpful, and a really wonderful guy!
This here is my Kyodai. – 兄弟
Kyodai usually means “Brothers from a different family”
In case you’re wondering, we’ve been through a lot (even though we’re not blood related).
Late night supper! 
Mc Donalds – Take out
That’s a Daruma!
達磨
 
The Daruma doll, is a hollow, round, Japanese traditional doll modeled after Bodhidharma, the founder of the Zen sect of Buddhism. 
These dolls, are usually red and depicting a bearded man Dharma. 
Daruma has a design that is rich in symbolism and is regarded more as a talisman of good luck to Japanese. Daruma dolls are seen as a symbol of perseverance and good luck, making them a popular gift of encouragement.
THE DARUMA DOLL REMINDS US TO NEVER GIVE UP ON OUR DREAMS. 
 
How to use: 
– THINK OF YOUR GOAL 
– FILL IN THE LEFT EYE WHILE CONCENTRATING ON YOUR WISH.
– PLACE THE DARUMA ON YOUR DESK, IN YOUR ROOM, OR WHEREVER IT WILL REMIND YOU OF ITS PURPOSE.
– WRITE YOUR WISH IN THE MIDDLE (ON HIS BELLY). 
– PAINT THE OTHER EYE (RIGHT) WHEN THE WISH IS FULFILLED.
 
– ONCE EVERYTHING IS DONE, BRING IT TO THE TEMPLE TO BURN THE DOLL.
(This is not necessarily compulsory, it’s just more of a tradition and not everyone does it!) 
Here is my Superior. 
I have the utmost respect for him.
A really wonderful guy, he works hard & plays harder!
 
(In Japan, it is customary to head out with your boss & colleagues after working hours.)
You cant say no. As long as he suggests it, you have to do it.
Well… This is Kei-chan. It’s her nickname, so i see no harm listing it here.
She was the star of the night, met us just after her fashion show.
Check out her hairdo & coat!!
These pictures are a lil outdated.
It was the opening of my “mama’s” bar.
My wonderful friend from America.
As most of you already know, Japan has many foreigners residing here.
Especially in Tokyo!
Game center / arcade
My friend here as you can see – He’s a Gyaruo (without makeup).
Hahahaha!!
He still looks good here though, don’t you think?
Another of my close friend.
He appreciates Tobacco & Cigars & Liquors as much as me!
I guess that’s how we click so well! 
One more of us!
My friend on the extreme left, is a hardcore biker!
He might not look it, but he sure as hell is!
Think: Harley’s, Studs, Spikes & Leather!
Prolly the reason we click so well too!
 
Our occasional gathering.
Finally, the last one!!
Here’s our dearest Gyaruo in full 90% gear!
Really good looking guy with similar taste in fashion & accessories with me!
 
Check out his necklace in the pic 5th from bottom & this last picture.
I have the exact same design, but as a bracelet instead.
 
Check it out here!
