English Diary: A Big Night Out in Japan 20220516 #2-94
Hello everyone. Thank you for coming back to my channel. My name is Mai and this is Nomadonomado English diary of the 16th of May 2022.
Yesterday, I went out with one of my friends. We met at Shinjuku station and went to a few bars to have drinks. The last time I met her was 2016 or something which was a long time ago. So we had lots of things to catch up on.
We went to Shinjuku Omoide-yokocho (新宿思い出横丁) and Shinjuku Golden Street (新宿ゴールデン街). She said that those places were popular amongst foreign tourists as well as local people, but there was no foreign tourist yesterday because Japan is not yet open to them.
Japanese people are relatively cautious in terms of avoiding the virus but there didn’t seem to be Covid existing in the Shinjuku bar streets. The staff in the bars was wearing masks but the guests were not. Some shops tried to keep the distance by putting the plastic board between groups of customers, but it is impossible, sometimes, because most of them are too small, they don’t have enough space.
I was not too nervous about that, but I know I have to be careful before my flight to Canada because I cannot get on the plane if I have Covid-like symptoms such as cough or fever. I should keep a low profile, especially after the next weekend.
We had a few drinks. I took the last train and a taxi to come back home. It was so fun that I couldn’t leave earlier. And next morning, which is today, I had a slight hangover, as you can expect. I feel tired and need to have more sleep, therefore, this is the end of today’s diary.
Alright, that’s all for now. Thank you for listening as usual. I hope you enjoyed this episode.
