85 Yen to the Dollar

Wow! The yen to dollar ratio is at a low. I don't really care. But more exiting is how I found out.


On a TV show called こどもニュース - Kid News. It's a show for kids, by kids. By the way this show is rad for language studying. Anyways...


They illustrated the value of different things. A pair of jeans, a bowl of instant ramen, and.... a 4 pack of happoshu. The low malt beer loved by penny pinching salarymen.

On a TV show called "Kid's News".

I like to watch Kids News too because it's a good way to study. I was in Japan last year and this is how I learned Obama's life story. Pretty cool.
