    Re: Dizzy-Cocoa-Drink... it's Chopper!! He's a little reindeer. And a doctor at that. He's from a popular anime called One Piece.

    Am loving the little Japanese gadget - especially the dishes for kids - my nephew needs one of those.

    Hi Hannah - Glad you've been enjoying the pics. Look forward to a huge swathe of Japan posts to come!

    Hi Yewenyi - Yes it was cold! Most days were between -3C to 2C and I kombanwa is good afternoon, ohayoo is good morning?

    Hi K - Oh I didn't know about Chopper! Thanks for the tip - will have to get up-to-speed on my anime!

    Hi Yas - Ha I love looking at the wax food displays but oh, where would I put them, and would they keep me hungry all day with them beckoning at me? lol

    Hi Ellie - Japan was full of so many great finds, although half the time I'd forget to whip out the iPhone to take a photo. Good to be home - now to get onto all the posts about it!

    Hi Grace - Japan was amazing. Thoroughly recommend it to anyone, especially all food lovers!

    Hi Pocohontas - lol. You are too funny. Reading your sentence now makes me laugh even harder - mochi overload and 100yen shop excess!

    Hi Trissa - Forget the nephew, I think I want one of those food trays for myself. lol!
