Usually I just take a quick look at the comments that are savely tucked away in my spam folder and then delete the whole bunch.
Normally it’s pretty easy to identify a comment as spam, something along the lines:
But this time I virtually stumbled and came to a halt with this comment:

Today I have some follow up pictures taken near the Fushimi Inari-Taisha and some really yummy looking ones from a restaurant in Osaka (^_^)

I’ll admit, that is definitely some weirder news from Japan, yet it shows an asymmetry that I find more disturbing than anything Megumi Igarashi could mold.
羨ましい（うらやましい） = urayamashii = jealous, envious
When I see all the pictures my husband send me from Japan, especially from all the – oh so good – looking food, there is but one word that comes to mind: urayamashiiiii (note the long “i”? yeah, it’s for emphasis, because I’m really really really jealous).
Though in this illustration the artist chose 欲しい（ほしい） (= hoshii = wish for, in need of, desired)…
Here is part two of the random picture posts from Japan, today featuring a more than colorful train and a visit at Tuskada Nojo (塚田農場)

In Beppu not only the Onsen and the Jigoku Meguri are worth a look. I had the best weather imaginable when I was visiting and I enjoyed walking beside the beach and sitting there, staring out onto the ocean for a long time. It felt so calm and just happy to sit there, enjoy the sun, the wind and the sound of the waves crushing onto the shore.
You could even get yourself burried in hot sand right next to the ocean, unfortunately my time was too short; meaning: I was too chicken to try it. Though I did get the chance later in another place and it really is a strangely great feeling to get burried in the sand. Which made me regret not trying it there even more, but is just another reason to come back one day and lie down next to the ocean and enjoy the sun and sand.

Since last week I am officially a freelance author for “Eckendenker” and write there (as I do here) about Japan
Of course I want to share those articles here with you as well, so I will post a short introduction and link to the original article always “First seen on Eckendenker” (^_^)
So here it goes, my article about Beppu and the Jigoku Meguri, the “Hell-Tour”, first seen on Eckendenker:Beppu…
Do you like snapshots from Japan?
My husband is currently in Japan, Osaka to be exact, and on a regular basis sends me random pictures he takes in the streets or on short trips (but mainly from all the amazing looking food he is eating) and I though “Why not share them on my blog?”
I don’t know about you but I always love to see pictures from Japan and even though I wouldn’t mind sitting right…
When the story broke and I first heard about it I was really feeling angry, though not too surprised to be honest.
A beautifully written and well informed post about Wagashi!

The first charakter 失 can be translated as “loss”, while the second one 笑 is the one for laughter, so it really is “losing laughter”, which describes having a fit of laughter perfectly. I admire people who can lose themselves in laughter so completely. They usually have also a laugh that is very contagious.
I don’t know about you, but I definitely laugh not often enough, which I was once…
A post that made me chuckle (but laughing out loud inside, chuckling is my “I’m at work”-laugh) and I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I did (and with a twinkle in the eye) ;)
