I don't have any pictures, but I like my microwave haha because it is also an oven, a toaster, and a steamer


That sounds pretty cool and like it'd save a bunch of space. Try putting the name into a search engine and see if it comes up, I wanna see.

It looks like a microwave, but it just cooks a whole bunch of stuff in different ways. If you can see the numbers/writing on the front, they are some of the different foods you can cook. This machine gives you 47 examples you can use. Or you can just set the cooking mode, temperature, wattage or time yourself. I think you can download an app and send instructions to it as well. Water for the steamer is put in a little tank under the machine.


Cool. That's pretty clever. Would you be happy using that to do your rice or do you use a dedicated rice cooker?

The only parts I can read are 'start' since it's in katakana and 'shiagari' which I'm guessing in this context means it's ready or done?
 

But I wish Japan had more central heating, some modern houses have it but most places don't, so it's hot in the summer and cold in the winter indoors. We have to use the air conditioning unit or a kerosene heater to stay at a reasonable temperature, it's expensive! :(


You see people waking up in freezing houses to the point where they can see their own breath a lot in anime, it must suck to leave a warm bed to be greeted by that.
 

Edit: if you are interested, I can post some more electronics we have here. But they are common things people have in Japan


If you think they're smexy go ahead. If you have any ancient NEC computers at work or something that'd be cool.

What I find funny is all those appliances have more complicated controls than your multi-purpose oven which does a million things. They also look kinda dated with all the beige.

I was kinda tempted to get a rice cooker a couple of years ago since they do it perfectly every time but it's crazy-expensive to get a proper one. Since then I have cooking it on the hob down to an art. I've never tried Japanese rice though, generally I only see basmati and other long grains in the shops.

Yeah they can be a little expensive, even the old looking ones :(
Japanese rice is really good tho, it's also a little sticky. I hope you can enjoy it!
But sometimes its a little sweet, lots of Japanese food is sweet lol
If you like sweet things I think you will like the food here :)


I like sweet things but I'm not keen on food from that side of the world generally. The food is one of the things that would put me off living there, the other thing being the summer heat. I need snow and bacon to work optimally.
 

Here is our fridge lol it opens by touching the buttons


Damn, this is a whole new level of laziness I didn't even know I needed. Oh yeah, that reminds me of reading about taxis over there having automatic doors that open for you, we should import that idea as well.

Does this mean a little PotatoMuffin is on the way?

I used to work for a hospital in the medical records department but never saw much of the fancy equipment in clinical areas.

Congratulations. You kept that one quiet. ;)
 

There's a machine here in Japan where you can win and dispense some electronics. 3ds, ps vita, cameras, iPods etc
But also you can win some rubbish stuff, you always get a prize tho. I saw someone on the Internet win an empty DVD case once haha!
I really want to play this next time I go into the big city. It costs 1000 yen to play :)

If you want to see a video you can search: 1000円自販機 大当たり (1000 en jihanki ooatari)


I heard about umbrella dispensers over there, those sound handy. Particularly in tourist spots where people might get caught out by rain.

Apple products are just status symbols for the elitist fanboys out there. Apple could sell a gold plated electronic turd and people would buy it. Oh look, I have an iTurd, i'm better than you

Is it smexy? It's honestly kinda ugly and too chunky for girly wrists like mine. Only the shark mesh and steel link bracelets make it look passable from the pics I've seen.
