Zooming ahead in time in late afternoon to have some yummy Cold Stone Creamery made by a rather yummy young lady who asked her comrades to sing for us. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ypJkq63Ihrs
A lot of what FrancFranc have in stock has been imported from outside of Japan and this is what my wife wants to do too. Many Japanese folks love stuff thats been imported - just like Kaldi that I talked about the other day.
Comme Ca Du Mode is one of the largest apparel chain stores in Japan who do a load of cool black stuff similar to what you may find in ZARA.
I just tried to look for their official site and learned that the CEO of the Comme Ca Du Mode is against having an official website and up until this day they don't have a web presence.
And here are the prices of the puppies - the girls in pink, boys in blue. The most expensive being the girl costing 378000 yen (4942 USD). Our neighbors got a dog recently and told us of how they needed to take it for an operation costing something like 300000 yen - which meant that their plans to get a new wide screen TV went out the window.
Does buying/owning a dog in your neck of the woods cost an arm and a few toes?
In a move to get people out n about to spend their money, discounts are in effect for using the highways. What would usually cost us 700 yen today cost only 500 yen. There are other discounts including the 1000 yen to use as much as you want in a day - meaning that you can drive from Tokyo to Osaka and it will only cost 1000 yen which would have cost much more before.
