Day 9

Day 9

I was able to find the book cafe recommended to me by Takahiro and it did not disappoint.

The bar serves as a huge library for Japanese “counter culture”. This is a term used for the hippie movement in Japan. At this bar I had several conversations about On the Road, mainly Dean’s character. There was a debate on whether or not Dean is a nice guy or not. A few had thought he was a cool guy while others thought he was a jerk.

Most of the patrons couldn’t speak English except for a few but it was great talking to them, even exchanged contact information with a few people.

This country is really taking a hold of me. I will never forget this trip or the new friends I have made!
