Due to the limited living spaces they have, especially in crowded cities like Tokyo, everything is a lot smaller than what seen in the US.

When people ask me where they should visit during their stay in Japan, I ALWAYS recommend them to go to デパ地下 (depachika). デパ地下 consists of two words デパートメントストア (depa-tomento sutoa – department store) and 地下 (chika – underground/basement), and the word literally means “department store basement”.

Halloween is coming up, so why don’t I tell you something a little spooky today… 😛 百鬼夜行, or the ”Night Parade of One Hundred Demons”, appear in many Japanese literatures and folklore.
