Party in Kichijoji and Kokubunji

Published on February 2nd, 2010.

Went out to meet with some old classmates who’re currently studying in Japan. Ended up at an izakaya in Kichijoji where we had a tabehoudai (eat all you can).

Notice that the V-sign pops up automatically in all 4 pictures I’m in (and almost all other photos I haven’t uploaded here too :P)

I want that huge Jack Daniel’s bottle just above my head^^

Showed off my awesome music collection on my iPhone too, got some pretty old stuff on there that not many people my age know of. But the Japanese usually know most of them^^

And then when we were out of time at the izakaya, we went back to where all these university students live.

Had a great time here, we played a game where everyone have to pick a chopstick out of a cup that has either a number or a “K” on it (King). The one who becomes to king has to pick two numbers and give them some kind of punishment :D Giving all players a punishment is cool too.

Like having to put on something the person next to you is wearing :P

We ended up being quite a large group which was unexpected, but awesome.

Above in red is Tori, he’s a totally hilarious guy! I showed him my Morning Musume pics and shit^^

Spent a long time talking with this and another Korean guy, don’t really remember what we talked about but had a good time! That brown scarf I’m wearing is Anna’s, which I had to wear because of the batsu game earlier, it’s a Starbucks scarf! :D

The Koreans don’t speak English at all, so all in Japanese, but it was fine^^ They brought Soju (Korean alcohol), but one sip was enough, no one actually drank it.

Cute.

I’ve been wondering what those red arrows on the windows are for a while now, you see them everywhere here. Perhaps you know?

Now that’s a pose!

Off to Karaoke at like, 4-5 AM in the morning, it’s so cool that everything is open all the time^^

I sang ELLEGARDEN’s “Marry Me” and the others mostly sang songs I didn’t know, but we had fun! Came back home at around 7 AM after getting some breakfast at McDonald’s (disappointed that you can’t get a real burger in the morning T_T).

I’d do this again, but unfortunately I’m going home soon, but maybe next time!

    Soju is something that gets talked about in the US Army quite a bit, because of the US Army bases in South Korea. People who have been there always say to avoid the soju because it’ll destroy you quickly.

    I’m curious as to what those red arrows mean too. Is there a balcony or fire escape outside those windows? Maybe those are indicators for safety glass that shatters into squares in case you need to exit because of a fire?

    I have danced with Shochu myself and it definitely is an acquired taste. And yes, it will destroy you like Godzilla if you don’t watch yourself. It is catching on in the US as well: http://articles.sfgate.com/2008-10-17/wine/17138613_1_sake-vodka-japanese

    The red triangles mark glass windows/doors for use by emergency services such as the fire department. A balcony or fire escape is not required under windows marked this way.
