Nice Things I Brought Back from Japan #1: 「おばあちゃんの料理・我が娘に贈る」(roughly translated: “Grandma’s cooking, a gift for my daughter.”)
It’s a recipe book, but I don’t think I’ll be able to use it anytime soon, there’s too much I can’t read yet. I love cooking, and I love Japanese food, though. So just another reason to 頑張る💪！勉強しましょう〜^_^
july 4, 2017 || first day of school! everyone is basically the same ppl from last year [bc honours class and stuff], and aaaah we were so noisy!! the day was full of catching up with friends [consisting of students and teachers haha] and orientations!!
jeez this one teacher asked for his souvenir from japan in front of the other teacher i was so–
he’s great though, i love him, he’s like the older bro i wish i had ♡ he checks up on my friend and i, and he was so amazed when i read the japanese characters on the thing i gave him how cute
that guide to aiming for honours is getting seriously long ahh pls tell me how long you want it to be!!
anyway, here’s our schedule! i smudged out the names of the teachers for privacy purposes.
A US Marine chooses a souvenir from a pile of surrendered Japanese officer’s swords.
Countless thousands of katanas, many family heirlooms, were surrendered to the allies by the Japanese. Although plans were set to return the swords to their owners, when MacArthur left Japan for the Korean war, these plans completely fell through. Many were stolen by American servicemen and taken home as souvenirs.
