Hokuou Joshi: A Swedish Girl’s Life in Japan Volume 1, Chapter 1 (6)

Convenience store onigiri are way too handy! Why is it that Japanese girls can call just about anything “cute?” The guys at host bars are so hot, they’re like real-life anime characters! These are only some of the mysteries Swedish manga artist Åsa Ekström discovers in this journal comic about her journey from Scandinavia to Japan, which is jam-packed with surprises and laughs! >>>Chapter 1: My Day-to-Day Life in Wonderland (6)「Japan is too convenient for foreigners…」

Japan is too convenient for foreigners…

Åsa’s comment

This...really happened to me. I love onigiri, so I eat it all the time, ut it took a really long time before I figured out how to open the packaging. Maybe us non-Japanese people just don’t notice these things because we’re not used to everything being so convenient…
