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!

“All Right:” a Phrase I Don’t Get

Åsa’s comment

When I first came to Japan, I was really confused by “all right.” It seemed like sometimes it meant yes, sometimes it meant no… I feel like I remember studying the rules for that in Japanese class once, but I don’t remember it now. I don’t have the best memory.
