I went to lunch-dinner (was at like 3:30 or so) at a Japanese restaurant.
It was so yummy!
It’s called Kumi•Ko and it is one of the few Japanese food places actually owned by Japanese people in my area.
Every time I go there I talk to them in Japanese and get some practice time in.
I was with my mother and after we ordered the hostess (who I believe is the owners wife, she’s probably 50’s or 60’s) brought us our appetizer and say “hai dozo” and I replied “arigatou gozaimasu” she was so amazed! Hahahahha from then on we spoke in Japanese.
She was very impressed with my Japanese and she hugged me!
She was such a nice obaa-san!
I wanna work there….so I can practice Japanese all the time!
Try your best everyone!
