There's something in my ear...

Posted on 2005/05/04 02:40:26 (May 2005).

[Wednesday 4th May]
Today was Chie's birthday. Again I woke up early - still haven't got used to the time difference, and spent a couple of hours on the internet researching Japanese digital TV. After breakfast we had a little present opening session. Amongst the presents (the mandatory "stupid and pointless" one) was a sort of rubber ear thing, which is used in a visual gag often seen on Japanese TV. Click on the image to see a short video clip demonstrating its' use. I seem to have found this a lot more amusing than it really should be.
In the afternoon we went to the shopping centre - Diamond City - which used to be the local Kirin Brewery. Kirin still has a presence there - a small scale brewery in just one of the original buildings, which works more as a visitor centre than an actual proper industrial concern. We went on the tour of the brewery which was very interesting, despite only being able to understand snippets of what the tour guide was saying. Later on we headed over to Chie's grandparent's house for dinner, and spent the remainder of the evening there.
