A Salty Failure | Hokuou Joshi : A Swedish Girl’s Life in Japan Volume 1, Chapter 4 (81)

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 4: Back Home in Sweden (81)「A Salty Failure」

A Salty Failure

Åsa’s comment

I’ve had Japanese people try licorice many times, but it always seems to end in trauma. Maybe it’s a love-hate thing in Sweden, too. It’s pretty salty, and it can be a little acidic, so if you eat too much of it, you’ll get canker sores. Ha ha!
