Today I experienced my first earthquake warning.
Just the warning, not much happened where I was at.
Japan, being a place where the plates tend to slip a lot, seems to have a very good system for telling people to go somewhere safer than they are now or else be shaken to bits.
First my phone buzzes and then alarms start going off on phones everywhere on the floor.
It apparently tells you where the quake happened and what the magnitude is but my phone just told me that there was an earthquake.
Since I’m going to visit my grandparents during the vacation we have next week, I went to the liquor store.
A gift of cosmetics is what I already have for my grandmother and grandfather likes shochu.
So many choices…
On the left is potato shochu and the right is what shochu.
I was surprised at how cheap alcohol seems to be in Japan.
Around $20 for about 2L of good looking shochu.
