Japan: This blog is dead... Oh wait (December Update)

So a month ago this blog pretty-much died, I stopped posting and forgot about it entirely, how neglectful of me. As I write this post I just received an email that says the following:

That pretty-much sums up the response from my readers.
I will now reply to a commonly asked question around the internet and the world that is asked when someone returns from an unknown location after a bloated amount of time...
"Where we're you?!"
I'll tell you where I was, Japan, as the title may suggest.
Now before you run around running and screaming or just commenting "Lucky" I want you to consider how many other people would do the same thing.
Japan is, most certainly, above all else, quite well suited to me. It's full of delicious, inexpensive food. The people aren't obnoxious or deserving of a slow painful death. There is a distinct lack of sunlight, like in the UK, but it's still very hot and humid in the summer.
Also if you ever happen to go to Japan yourself, be sure to go into a Family Mart and get a packet of what appear to be 4 pancakes for ¥108, what are they? They are, in fact, 2 pancakes sand-wedged together with butter and maple syrup in them, there are also variations such as the lighter ones which have a lemon-ish custard in them.
The one thing I can say is that if you hate rice then Japan isn't really for you, since some Japanese people are happy to eat white rice on it's own. Vending machines are abundant, and have a variety of lowly priced drinks in them, some other vending machines I saw dispensed:

  1. Drinks
  2. Cigarettes
  3. Alcoholic Drinks
  4. Newspapers
  5. Tea-Bags
  6. Instant Coffee
  7. Health Food Bars
And more...

If after all I've said you don't think Japan sounds very interesting then you should be glad to know some things in Japan change as you move around, like with any country.
That's all I can type for this month,
Thanks for your time,
