Musings about Japan and life as a human, a cosplayer, a minority, a music lover, an English teacher.

“What’s Shibuya?”

During recess today two 3rd graders came into the English classroom. I wasn’t doing anything important, just sitting there looking over some stuff. They came in and saw my iPod Touch (which is very popular with the kids) and so I showed them some of the pictures I had on it.

(in Japanese)
Me: “Oh, and here’s Shibuya.”
Student A: Shibuya?
Student B: “Eh, what’s Shibuya?”
Student A: “It’s that place with all the gyaru.”

I didn’t know what was cuter, the fact that B didn’t know what Shibuya was or A’s answer about all the gyaru.
