The shops of Yokohama Station

Convo this morning



(Mostly in Japanese)

Me: (huffing and puffing appropriately) I’m so sorry I’m late!

Kumi: Are you ok? I was worried.

Me: I’m sorry. I was looking for a locker in Yokohama station for my suitcase.

Kumi: That’s right, you’re going away after work…

Me: It was very difficult. My bag is big and most of the lockers are small.

Kumi: Did you find one?

Me: Yes, after all, I found one next to that department store in Yokohama station.

Kumi: Takashimaya?

Me: No the one near the other exit…you know the west exit?

Kumi: You must mean More‘s?

Me: Not Moores…More’s is the one with the Starbucks on  the second floor, right?

Kumi: That’s right! But Cial has a Starbucks on the second floor, too…Do you mean near Cial?

Me: No, no, no, it’s closer to the other exit, maybe the East exit…I always confuse the East and West exits.

Kumi: Ohhhh! You mean Sogo…that’s the big one by the East…

Me: No not…

Kumi: Or Bay Quarters…

Me: Not Sogo, not Bay Quarters either…For both of them you have to leave the station, right? The one I’m talking about can be entered from inside the station

Kumi: Oh, I got it.  Is it near the Sotetsu line? It must be Joinus

Me: It’s not far from Joinus but it’s much closer to the JR line.

Kumi: Ah. Then it must be Lumine!

Me: Yes! That’s the one! Lumine. There is a locker room right next to Lumine

Kumi: Oh yeah I know it. They do have large lockers don’t they.

Me: Yes, but I had to search all over to find them so I’m late…sorry again.

Kumi: (looking pensive) That’s a lot of  shops for one train station

Me: How many are there?

Kumi: I don’t know…a lot.

    The Yokohama Station area is a shopper’s paradise, but with the actual train line entrances centrally located between all the department stores, shopper traffic really screws with commuter traffic.

    Wow. I’d have been seriously frustrated by the end of that exchange. Heh. WAY too many shops.

    I found “Workaholic Hostess” off your blogroll and added it to mine. I like the read 🙂
    I hope my students do too 😉

Words I love…

Everybody is a star
I can feel it when you shine on me
I love you for who you are
Not the one you feel you need to be
Ever catch a falling star
Ain't no stopping 'til it's in the ground
Everybody is a star
One big circle going round and round
