When people ask "What's your type?", what kind of things are they asking for?
I feel like the word "type" comes up a lot in talks about what you look for in a partner but does type mean physical? Personality? What do you all answer?
Both! Honestly, it's whatever you want. Height, looks, lifestyle, personality. I've heard it all. I say cute and likes sports. If I'm better friends with them, then maybe I'd say more....
What is Johnnys? Janiizuu?

I want to try my hand at it.
Curry is quite easy. If you can find the Japanese curry cubes, you just have to cut up potatoes, carrots, onions and the meat of your choice. You can make a huge batch and eat it for days or freeze it...
Why are there cute animals on the street barricades?
I saw monkeys and frogs on the stands, and it always made me laugh a little.
I heard once that it's to keep the image of Japan being friendly and safe. Plus Japan likes cute things, so why not??
