Greetings from Japan, on this lovely Friday.
The latest hair fashion in Japan is a soft blonde that’s very pleasing to the eye, far better than the outrageous yellows that Japanese girls have chosen in the past. Walking around Shibuya or Shinjuku, I see many girls who have colored their hair this soft, realistic blonde “chapatsu” color, and I like it. It looks perhaps best on Mochida Kaori, the lead singer of Every Little Thing (not to be confused with Mochida Kaoru, the AV actress with the 100+ cm bust. See a picture of Kaori-chan and her hair style at http://www4.big.or.jp/~tatooine/Pictures/ELT/eltphoto/kaori239.jpg.
Kaori’s father is having a good week. Like many middle-aged Japanese men, golf is his primary love in life, and he made a hole-in-one while playing golf last weekend. Because he pays into a “hole-in-one fund” for golf enthusiasts, this entitles him to a whopping $5000. He’s supposed to spend the money on a “congratulations party, but Kaori said he’s going to find a way around that by using some judicious loopholes. In a land where it’s difficult to show passion for your hobbies, golf is the king. (Kaori recently dropped her Strawberry iMac, breaking it internally, and she’s setting her sights on some of her father’s money to fix her lovely computer.)
