Visiting Japan in board game: Tokaido

Well I was on Facebook after first few instructions!

First few instructions were about got cards that together made a panorama. Also got points, coins … I do not know for different foods. So thought sounded ok. I want to go to Japan. I like taking pictures and eating local food. I like sushi.

I was on Facebook throughout game. It sound painless. I never got on bits where buy souvenirs.

Some players took it more serious but, all ended up at about End about same time. So I fudge way, without embarrassing self. It was painless! Do not know whether gin started drinking when watching snooker or Facebook.

However, we reached end of journey. We ended up with coins and cards took ages to add up to know who had won.

Anyways out if 5 behind 1st and 2nd with remaining 3, I was joint third.

Still want to go to Japan. Apparently on my journey I went in lots of hot springs. I had a bit of sushi.

Japanese Girls Don’t Die

This was part of Japanese season, at the Showroom.

Japan 🇯🇵 Season in Sheffield

I’m not a big film fan, although this was the first of three films, that I’m watching this week. One thing that, I find about films, is they can be very one dimensional. You have a few central characters and they seem to have very few friends and family in their life as everyone in the film has a role. Whereas Japanese Girl’s Don’t Die was richer because there were surplus characters. As I tend to see the big blockbusters then the films, I watch, do lack diversity therefore it was good to see a film set in a different culture. It was in Japanese with English subtitles. I also liked that it had a couple of sub plots and themes. One theme was about graffiti artists (which I’m interested in) and their Work becoming viral. Another theme was about sexism. There were scenes about women being paid less than male colleagues and facing harassment. Also there was scenes about Japanese school girls beating up vulnerable men who were on their own.
