Happy new year!2010

Happy new year!
My christmas holiday is over. It was christmas morning.at Stockholm arland Airport in the early morning, just as normal day, and nothing could be differentfrom other days. I found a few families from grandmother to grandchildren were sitting in the lounge sofa waiting for the flight. Sas lounge ..one model like blonde mother with two children, One fat young girl. Carrier woman like over 60 years old beautiful grandmother with her daughters and their husbands , young grandchildren. In fact grandmother was the most beautiful and attractive woman among family. She walked first , then all others followed her. There is one couple who had 6 children, I just wonder if ....Probably this is very typical swedish style of Bonus children...Plastic mamma or papa?

My journey from Stockholm via Germany to Tokyo. I sat next to a Japanese who were sent from a Japanese comapany to a small town in Gemany for business. Hew said he was newly married and felt sorry for his absent for their first Christams eve after the marriage.

When I arraived at Narita airport, sun shined brightly(in tokyo during winter sun shines so nicely.)and in fact first I noticed my scarf`s real color and pattern under the bright Tokyo sun shine.(I was given by a french friend who moved to England from Stockholm before her leaving. She said to me this scarf that she bought in Paris could be more suitable for you.)Blue, pink...really nice mixture.

During my staying in Japan , parisianne C`s scarf was the best for all. Thanks to her!!I mean without that, I only had quite simple boring dark blue long sweater that I bought at a department store in Stureplan in Stockholm on christams eve just before their closing when I did last christmas present shopping.

When I arrived at Tokyo narita international airport, after long journy longer than 11 hours, and last one years`my absent in Japan, it took a little while to remember Japanese system and style. I came out with my luggages , as usual many who were waiting for their friends, guests...First I sat on the chair, then sorted out what I should do. From back I heard Swedish conversation. Young couples, she arrived from Sweden and her boyfriend swedish who might live in Japan welcomed her. They hugged each other and with rather exciting voice, they talked about anything. I laughted at myself, since the long chair a bit far from exit .

I sent one luggage to my parents`house by kuroneko yamato, then carried my bag plus IKEA bag. In fact blue Ikea bag middle size is quite combinient to carry if we have big size things but not too heavy.


First my Japanese moblie phone was out of battery, so I had to buy Japanese telephone card just next to public phone. Put 1000 yen note, then automatically within 3 seconds, telephon card came out. "This is Japan."I gave a call to my mother
.

I went to Toilet. Japanese toilet ...for foreigner they might be confused first. There are so many bottones.IN Germany and Sweden, we find toilet that automatically higyne the seat with special method, but it merely to be seen the toilet has function to clean with warm water preferable part of body I mean part of we need wipe with paper, They say it could be solution of eco friendly. No paper. The amazing very Japanese function is ..... One is for the only sound of river stream, but not real water running. IN fact we do not have to push all bottones.

Anyway it could be interesting to see how many functions Japanese TOTO toilet has. This could be one example how small details Japanese think and cares for, sometimes unnecessary for other coutry peoples but for Japanese. In other country, no one might understand why Japanese ladies hate to make other listen to the piss sounds. So they tend to use lots of water, before pissing they already flush the water, it is almost impossible to change Japanese woman`s mentality.so using modern technology, they solved this problem. One botton for sounds of water stream. well. It make sense.

The warm water even can wash autumatically and dry air coming out. There is the another function , quickly absorb the bad air function. If no one understand English or Japanese(normally there are always translation on each Japanese sign even chinese and korean.), they will experience totally different world at Japanese toilet.
And the seat part is normally comfortably warm and can adjust temperature.




Although 400 years ago, peoples might go to dark toilet in the north, no sun shines and cold.The Japanese dream come true in modern toilet. swedish toilet is very functional and best thing...Swedish toilet room is warm just like bath room.

So my first one hour after arriving at Tokyo international airport started from Japanese telephone card, Japanese toilet at narita airport.(continue....)
