After a very long day in Akihabara, Harajuku, and Shibuya ending with a super-speed bike ride home to avoid the cold, Mike and I ate a hearty meal.
I’ve translated the receipt for your viewing pleasure:
I taught myself that alphabet to the far left today on the train home from Tokyo. It’s called katakana, and is basically the Japanese alphabet for foreign words.
As you can tell, reading things in katakana can be difficult because you have to translate the sounds into English words. It can be tricky, but very rewarding when you actually figure it out.
PS sorry the photos are crap. I’m exhausted.
