Well today I go out of training around 3 because we had to do a health checkup at a hospital, which by the way was very nice looking inside. Anyways afterwards I went to a shopping mall because I was looking for maybe a peacoat or something to where with my slacks and button up, since I don't have a blazer I figured you cant go wrong with something that would work with different situations. Needless to say I did not find one, but I did find a pretty cool mall that was 4 stories of goodies, they had lots of house stuff, and the furniture design/architecture whatever you want to call it was super cool. I seen some of the coolest looking interior items I have ever seen before today. of course most all was expensive but I did find something I have been looking for for a few days which was a cotton type pillow for not super expensive. The pillows here in Japan are generally feather pillows (which i hate) and these little balls inside type pillows, kinda like those plastic bb's but not so hard. Anyways I am picky with my pillow density and what not so I will give the verdict after tonight's sleep, plus its hard for me to sleep with only one pillow so now that I have two that will be nice :) 1800¥ for the pillow which isn't bad since I heard some guy said its hard to find a cotton pillow for under 6000¥.

On another note being that I lived in Yokohama my first week here and I have been going back everyday now for training I feel like that is home. Every night I come to my apartment and I feel like this is just like a far away hotel lol. I am attached to Yokohama like no other city, that place is amazing. So clean and beautiful, not overcrowded like I have heard about Tokyo, which I will hopefully be visiting sometime soon. Yokohama just seems like an ideal place for me to live. I think all my family and friends need to move on over haha.

Anyways heres 2 pics I took today which are somewhat repetitive but I can't help it...

I have more video too but am short on time and energy to put it together, perhaps this weekend as well.
