Day 5 - Chilling....

Finally, this is the first day after my arrival in Japan i get to have some time off..

To give you a little description of where I am, i'm in a city called 'TOYOTA-CHI". Yes, toyota as in the Toyota car toyota. With its 41k people, its not a small city at all. Approximately 70% of the people living here work for Toyota, and the rest of the people i guess work for the people who work for toyota? Toyota is about 1 hour train ride from Nagoya (4th largest city in Japan).

I have only really been discovering the areas around where i live. Which is right next to the train station, and the train tracks.. and the train that passes every 20min. I dont notice it anymore.. actually to come think of it, i've never really noticed the noice at all...

There a two big shopping complexes next to the train station. I've only been to the basement (food leve) and the starbucks on 1st floor. I am yet to discover the rest of the building. Porbably after i work so i dont go crazy with the shopping. =)

We went to the japanese version of Bunnings warehouse to get a few more clothes racks and some other crap..
Lunch was at a Okonomiyaki Restaurant. Okonomiyaki (Japanese Pancake). You actually have the raw things, and its cooked on a hot plate infront of you. Shall let the pictures do the talking.
