Do you like Okonokiyaki?  I love it, and if you like it, I want to recommend you a very good Okonomiyaki shop.  The shop is “Dōtonbori”, it is All-you-can-eat buffet.  You could eat many kind of Okonomiyaki in there for two hours.  And the drink also is included.  However, the price is a little expensive, but I think you could enjoy with your friends.

A Kind of Culture Shock?

ラッシュアワー

I think I felt reverse culture shock when I came back to Japan. Reverse culture shock is a kind of culture shock but it happen when people come back to their own country.
During my spring vacation, I was looking forward very much to going to college in Japan because we did not spend time at Showa Tokyo last year. When I try to take a train, I was so surprised at the platform because of too many people on the train!! I did not expect “Rush Hour” is terrible like that. But I had to take the train, so I took it. After that, I was exhausted. Before I went to the United States, I took trains on Rush Hour everyday. I couldn’t imagine that!

Summer Internship

internship I am worried about job-hunting. Recently, some my friends change their hair color brown to black because we have to prepare for internship. I also decided to do internship and changed my hair color darker than before.

Internship is a method which you gain experiences through work before you start working. We can learn what we will do on the job in the future in advance. College students usually experience some of the internships, and then they try to do job-hunting.

I want to be a receptionist, so I will stay and work an old famous hotel for my internship. I am nervous that I will do internship from now. On the other hand, I am excited that what I can learn at the hotel!
