Stealing from another

I enjoy reading Hector Garcia's tales of a Spaniard in Japan http://www.kirainet.com/english/.  Have got a little behind with reading my favorite blogs and have just caught up with this entry - the story of the annual selection of the one kanji character that represents the society's sentiment about the past year.  The most voted character this year has been "kizuna" 絆 (きずな) which means bonds - the bonds that tie people. And for 2011 it was chosen to represent the unity of Japan and its friends following the terrible events of March and their aftermath.

Not only have I stolen his story, I've also stolen his pic - to share with you.

 

Today Hector has a wonderful story on what flavoured Kit Kats can be bought where in Japan - check it out.

Thanks Hector!
