I had Monday of Golden Week off from work, although it wasn't a national holiday. I made it America Day just for myself.
Most museums and public attractions are closed on Mondays in Japan, so I couldn't do any of those things. In addition, the weather forecast said chance of thunderstorms, but I still wanted to get out and do something on my day off. Last month, one of my students told me that the first day of every month was movie day, with discounted admission, so I decided to see an American movie in English!
This was very much like an American Theater, with many movies to choose from and a big concession stand.
What I didn't expect was the ticket machine. I chose Beauty and the Beast at 1:40 pm. I also had to choose my seat on the touch screen.
I had an American fast food lunch. Last year, I had a fish meal at McDonald's and I think it was 630 yen. This fish meal was only 550 yen. I don't know why!
It wasn't healthy and it wasn't even very good, but it was part of American Day.
