    Are the fabric thingies called noren? I think they hang those noren out when they are open. Better than having that little black sign with the red letters on

      Well, I have to admit that it doesn't reeeeally.  I saw a zen monk at Urawa station a couple of days ago (I had this irresistable urge to poke him, I don't know why... no worries though, I left him alone ;) ) and you'd have to do something to the 100 yen shop hat to make it look more authentic.  The hat they sell is labeled as a Vietnam hat... I don't know specifically why Vietnam... maybe I should take a closer look at it.  Of course to me they all look the same... that conical sorta shape made out of some kind of vegetable matter.  ;)
       
      Out of sheer curiosity, can you tell me what the real hats are made of, and how they're made... woven I assume, and probably rice something?  =)
       
      Is it just me, or does everything in this country come from either rice or soy?  I tried amazake a few weeks ago, ewwwww gross.  Might have been better if it had been hot rather than luke warm.  Just something about rice chunks floating in a drink that I can't get past though.  It automatically brings on the gag reaction.  I ended up feeding my cupful to a nearby bush.  (Editor's note: amazake literally means "sweet sake").

      p.s. Incidentally the 100 yen shop also has lately these fabric thingies, like the thingies you hang in doorways (I know their was a discussion about those awhile back but I'm brain dead this week... I almost quit my job *blah*).  They have faces on them (uh, yukioe?  no no no, what is that artwork called?), and some other ones have kanji I can't read.  Maybe I should buy one and ask a Japanese friend to read it to me.

      don't hold out!

      for this place.
