Some days ago I realized that I usually pass by the front of a bar called “Shinchan”, just like the main character of the manga Crayon Shin-chan! I don’t think the name of the bar comes from the manga, as Shinchan is a common nickname for people named Shinnosuke; however it caught my attention. Maybe next time I will go inside to see how it is; to enter you have go down the stairs to the left.
My condolences to Yoshito Usui, author of Shin-chan, who died last September in an unfortunate accident while he was enjoying a hiking day at the mountains in Gunma. Be careful if you go hiking in the mountains and enjoy Yoshito’s legacy!
