Dead to the World


Tis the season for Bonenkai! This translates into 'forget the year party' and it's a time where people nation wide have an excuse to go wild.

These end-of-the-year-get-togethers usually take place at an Izakaya, a japanese pub, with old school friends, co-workers, relatives, just about everyone. December is a busy busy month with so many Bonenkai parties to go to. I'm pretty sure an average person goes to atleast 5 to 10 Bonenkai's.

And you start to see more people like this poor guy, practically passed out on the train ride home. But I've got to tell ya, he's lucky to have made it on the last train. There are hundreds of others still out drinking till the wee hours of the morning, just to rush back home, shower, and head out back to work.

Thankfully, for most corporate companies, today is the last day of work! Yay!

Ah, bonenkai! I experienced those parties as a teacher at Mashita Minami high school in Gero back in 1990! Champai!
