Our Experiences

Just a reminder that banks close for New Years holidays. Don’t get caught without cash. Grab a few extra ichimans today while you still can. Also, various stores will close and others will change their opening/closing times. If you need to, stock up on things like food, diapers, etc.

Also, be on the look out for New Years’ fukubukoro and get a LOT of stuff for CHEAP. Seriously, if you don’t know what these lucky bags are, check the link. Don’t miss it! Even Mister Donut has fukubukuros (thanks Ken Y-N from whatjapanthinks!). I also spotted Hassakus in the grocery store today. This is my favorite Japanese fruit, so if you haven’t tried them yet, check it out.

Jalepeno peppers are my favorite sandwich condiment. Whenever I’d go to Subway back in Texas, I’d always have them pile on the jalepenos. Sadly, Subway here in Japan doesn’t offer jalepenos (at least not any Subway near me!). My import store doesn’t even sell them! What can I do?

Mos Burger.
Not only is Mos Burger the best fast-food hamburger place around, not only does it have the best onion rings known to man, but they also have jalepenos! If you order a Spicy Mos Burger, the “Spicy” you taste comes from chopped jalepenos that they stick in your burger sauce blap stuff. Delicious! Even without the tilde.

Surviving Japan

In Japan, when people get even a little bit sick they wear a mask. If you ride the train everyday, you’re likely to see at least one person wearing a mask everyday.
If there’s a bug going around, some people will wear masks in an attempt to avoid getting sick.
If there’s a fear of some sort of epidemic, people will go to the drug stores and buy up all the masks.

Recently, Japan has been making a lot of noise about the swine flu. People are getting checked for flu symptoms at the airport. People are being quarantined. Schools are closing across Japan!!! And drug stores are running out of masks.
I happen to live in Hyogo, which is where the schools are closing. We must be out of masks, because I got this hilarious handout on my desk at work today

Our History

Howdy! I’m Thomas Hjelm, the author of NihonHacks. My first crazy adventure in Japan was as an exchange student at Kansai Gaidai University in 2002. A few years have gone by, and now I’m back in Japan on the JET program, teaching English to Jr. High Schoolers in Hyogo. Interests include guitar, climbing mountains, language, history and Thai food. Here is my StumbleUpon profile if you want to add me.

The Purpose of this Blog
