long-lasting liza

The recession continues to bite in Japan - take a little stroll around any 'hood and you'll likely see a fair few empty premises.

However, it's good to see that Liza is planning to stick around for a while...

You can always count on Liza.

Haha ~ seconded that.

It says there Pa-ma Shoppu.

I think, what the owner is really trying to say is, " Perm Shop " .. a hairstylist maybe ?

Am I right ?

This are not great in my little Japanese tourist town. Many shops are empty, buildings boarded up, and a general feeling of gloom has fallen over the entire city.

What do you think the "perm" in "perm shop" is short for?

Perms I don't mind, but I despise those "temp recruitment" agencies. I've yet to see any tempura in them, and they acted all funny when I brought in my own battered prawn.

Hi, I enjoy reading your blog. I came across it as I noticed we seem to crop up on quite a few of the same search lists. My blog was formerly known as An Englishman in Korea, then the name of the country got changed a few times as I moved around. Now, I just call it An Englishman Abroad. It looks like you're planning to stick around in Osaka, so I'll post a link to your blog.

Hey, love the blog.
I'll be visiting Osaka in December for two weeks. I visited over the summer and basically did all the stuff that I wanted to do (Osaka castle, the aquarium, dotombori (sp), the zoo). Is there anything else you (or anyone else) can recommend?
All I have planned so far is the Osaka Peace museum and the open air farmhouse museum (if it's open).

For a bit of underbelly, how about Shinsekai. Thats an interesting part of Osaka, near Tennoji.

I love the way they have two spotlights for night just to make sure everyone knows, Yes we are permanent, and don't you forget it!
