This is an example of "purikura," a type of photo booth that is very popular in Japan. First you take pictures with a group of friends. Next, you decorate the picture using a stylus on a touch screen. Then you wait for the pictures to be printed on sticker paper. Then you cut the pictures out, distribute them to friends, and stick them all over everything!A few coworkers and I had a small birthday party for Ami and Nakamura-sensei, so after we went out to eat we took purikura together.

    I had my first experience with this a couple of weeks ago with some friends...very fun experience I suppose. I hope you have a GREAT vacation with your mom.

    Purikura is better than drinking for downright belly laugh fun! What a way to NOT take yourself seriously and still keep your wits about you. I would SO like to open the first American Purikura store! It would rule.
