A Miserable Day For Flag Duty...

It looked like it was going to rain but I don't know if their are rules about what you can and can't do when it rains, like - can I use an umbrella or do I have to use a raincoat? I asked Ebi-kun what he thought and he said "raincoat, maybe". But then he came out with these words of wisdom.

Nippori is known as fabric town and is dotted with fabric stores! If you are going for the first time, keep your eye open at the station because they have maps in English and Japanese. Tomato is the biggest store and there are 4 or 5 of them and there are loads of other stores too.

I don't know if this is one of those Only In Japan things but I have seen a lot of kids strapped onto their mom or dad and whizzing down the slope, that is not a backpack, it's a small child! I've also seen snowboarders doing the same. Considering I broke my leg skiing, I know how dangerous a ...
