Japan Shopping

June 14th, 2007 by Potato

I had some time today to run out and do a bit of shopping in Japan, and also see the famous Kanazawa Geisha district.

I tell you, there aren’t a lot of typical tourist trap stores here. There are plenty to cater to tourists, but they’re filled with expensive gold-plated, or intricate and delicate things that don’t make very good cheap gifts to bring back. I couldn’t even find a simple post-card with a picture of the city, all I saw were Japanese LOLcats.

They has postcards of LOLcats? LOL! I haz sleepy face!

Almost nobody takes Visa here, and the one place we did find that took it obviously didn’t use it much, because it took two staff members a long time to figure it out.
