I can’t believe Easter is already this week. We received a wonderful package of goodies from my parents the other day that reminded me it was just around the corner. Easter isn’t much of a thing here, but you can see some signs of the holiday, especially in popular areas for expats. How will we celebrate? Eating candy and . . . well . . . maybe just eating candy.
Here are my web tacks for the week — there’s some love for my home state in there as well as some of Japan’s more personal customs.
- I’ve been asked if I’ve seen any gyaru here. This explains why I haven’t. [Japan Today]
- An interview with one of the fashion world’s most interesting — and lasting — figures. [The Cut]
- This post certainly gave me something to ponder with how I document my travels. [xoJane]
- More way to eat avocados as summer approaches. [SELF]
- Adding some of these restaurants to my list of must-visits when I head back to Michigan this summer. [Thrillist]
- I can’t say I’ve been offered “toilet slippers” yet, but this explanation of Japanese bathroom customs is pretty spot on. [Refinery29]
- Prepare to have your swimming skills shown up by the haenyeo of South Korea. [The New Yorker]
- Now, I don’t use all of this slang, but I didn’t think these terms were that confusing. [Daily Detroit]
