A Day in Kita-Senju

Day 7 [New Year’s Resolution]: A Day in Kita-Senju 

I met my homestay family today! I first met them in November 2012 as part of the study program at Toyo University and we’re still close now.

Since Kita-Senju in east Tokyo is about halfway between their house and mine, we decided to meet there. I’d never been, but it turned out to be a nice little shopping spot.


We has a nice meal (super cheap – beer for 300 yen and Jim Beam and soda highball for just 200) and I got NieR: Automata on PS4, yay!

Even though I’m still a bit sick with a cold I had a lovely time with them and my friend Leo. Then I took Krispy Kreme doughnuts home. Today was a great day!


Tomorrow is Coming of Age Day in Japan which means a bonus day off as well. Hopefully it’ll be enough to get completely well before it’s back to work.

Have you ever been to Kita-Senju? What did you do today?
