I LOVE starbucks. When I first came to Japan there weren't any in Fukuoka and I really don't like Japanese coffee places because first, I hate Japanese coffee and second, I always feel like I should drink and go. So I was thrilled when starbucks opened years ago.
Anyway, recently my assistant showed me her cool "keitai" strap (cell phone strap) and she said she would look for one for me later that day when she went into town. Well, they were sold out...in fact all of the starbucks in the area were sold out. So, I phoned my friend in Tokyo and asked her to pick me up one and she had to go to 5 starbucks before she could find one! I tell ya, Japanese love their cell phone straps!!!
So, I have a question for all of you since I get this question all the time....do Americans (Canadians, Europeans....all non-Japanese people) love cell phone straps like Japanese do? I don't know the answer since I have lived here for so long but I tell you sometime you can't see the phone for all the straps hanging off it!! Would love some answers....thanks!
