べんきょうしる An awesome site to aid in your Japanese studies… Lingualift!

http://japanese.lingualift.com/

This site is actually pretty cool for learning and has a sleek design. They have online chapters that is an E text book that offers a new way of study and memorization games that are quite fun. Plus they actually work and you can set your difficulty.  Though this site may not be for complete newbies to Japanese since it seems to move a little out of order if you don’t have the basic vocab down.

Here is an awesome video from this language learning site that I found quite hilarious.

And can the cat fit in the box?

Here’s another fun video of the sounds of the kana, the AIUEO song. Enjoy!

コキュCocue my favorite store in Japan!

Check out their web site! It’s fairly easy to navigate even if you don’t speak Japanese. www.world.co.jp/cocue/

The first time I was in Tachikawa shopping I noticed this brightly colored store of clothes and what not, but what really got my attention was the shoes. As I took a closer look I found shoe clips and shoe bands. Shoe bands became one of my favorite things! This store is most popular for their shoe clips and bands.

Here is a preview of this seasons collection!

I like that this skirt come with a slip.

Hippie chic!

Cocue also has a great selection of unique hats and purses!

Awesome hat that would pair nicely with the dress above!

Sun-brella! or just an umbrella.

One thing that is popular in Japan is having an umbrella to protect your skin from the sun! Most people in Japan value the soft white skin tone. Plus why not have it match your wardrobe!

Cute clip on bow you can attach to a purse or even your clothes.

The strap on these shoes is much easier to fasten then the kind you have to tread through the hole. All you do is clip/clasp it and your ready to go! Makes it much easier to take your shoes off when enter a home or dressing room in Japan. (that’s right, no shoes on in the dressing rooms)

Super かわいい lace up sandals!

These shoes come with a pair of shoe clips! Wear them with or without these pretty yellow flowers.

20120517-125547.jpg

Shoe clips. Wear them with any shoes you like to change the look of them!

Add shoe clips to any pair of plain shoes and voila! you have a new style shoe!

For my favorite… Shoe bands!

(I’m going to have to make a separate post for these eventually)

Slide them over a pair of pumps to keep your foot from falling out! Plus they look super cute!

And lastly here is a pair of shoe band’s I bought from Cocue about 3 years ago!

すごい! Acid mothers temple! A band that is like no other! (^O^☆♪

Such an awesome band we saw the other night! It was my second time seeing acid mothers temple. If you don’t know about them they are a psychedelic Japanese jam band. Probably some of the nicest most patient guys I’ve ever met. My boyfriend and I bought a snare head that had custom drawings from Kawabata(the guitarist) and signed by the band. I posted a photo below. Never seen anything like it in my life truly original.
Check out there site. http://www.acidmothers.com/Cgi-bin/index_main.html

This second one is a much softer, dreamy type song. Wish I knew the name of it.
