i went with like ten kids from our school after having been in japanese classes for 3 years, and it was really really neat because we only had to take around 4hours' worth of school there everyday, and then we were let loose into the streets to buy too much candy and purikura photos and barhop to our wallets' limits.
once at the table, i was being asked if i'd had enough, and i said "kekko-da", but they kept insisting, so i said it was "daijoubu" (thinking of "i'm okay, *i have enough*" in english, but apparently meaning "alright, *some more plz*" in japanese). i then had to use my kekko skills like five million times over after that.
i understand completely if you couldn't make out what i just tried to explain. orz
oh my god. my host father toured us through some ancient villages one day, and they had all these food samples everywhere, and he'd ask us if we liked them. the SECOND we said yes, he bought a giant bag of whatever it was and handed it to us. the worst part is that we were only being polite most of the time, so we'd ended up with tons of little snacks that we didn't like. DDD: the "we" i keep repeating, being my roommate and i, of course.
