Hair grabbing in convenient stores...

I forgot to mention one other highlight of my trip up north to Wakkanai...

On Sunday morning, Rob and I went to the local Seico Mart (convenient store) to grab some gifts for Nic who let us stay at his house... We went up to pay and the two middle aged women behind the counter just reached across, grabbed my hair and began to stroke it!!!!!! There was no talking or asking for permission.... they just rang us up and started petting me. hahaha... I leaned in for them to get a better look at my hair and they went absolutely ga ga.... like little kids on Christmas morning.

I'm glad I'm an easy source of entertainment and amusement for so many Japanese people here!
