Jeroen and I used to live in the same building when we were still students of International Business at the University of Maastricht in the Netherlands. After graduation I moved to Japan and he started working for a Dutch company which has recently sent him to work on a project in Seoul, Korea. Korea is very close to Japan (especially compared to the Netherlands) so Jeroen decided to pay me a visit this weekend in Nagoya! Maiko and I went to pick him at Nagoya station to show him around Nagoya. One of the most important things we introduced Jeroen to today was of course purikura:
The first time Jeroen had no idea what was going on and the machine we were using was in quite a hurry. But the second machine was way more patient and by then Jeroen really got the hang of posing for pictures and decorating them afterwards. We wanted to try it a third time, because by then Jeroen had an array of ideas for funny pictures, but we had to make our dinner reservation so there was no more time.
