Oh and just something else I need to mention…I got a New Year Lucky Bag (Fukubukuro) from Fuji Mart in Subiaco today. I was so excited. Possibly a little too excited. The bag cost me $20, but it contained at least $50 worth of products. The bag of rice alone normally costs $14. Bargain!
Last year I was in Japan over the New Year period, so I managed to schnaffle up a Hello Kitty Fukubukuro, which was really awesome. Read all about it here https://poxilator.wordpress.com/2015/01/04/shopping-and-temples-together-at-last/
