くーさん has been my Japanese teacher for over two years; when he was a student at Ibaraki university, and now, whilst he's doing a masters in Tokyo, training to be a Japanese teacher. I pay him by picking up the cheque at the end of our meals together, always trying to encourage him to order something fancy.
This month, they opened a branch of my favourite Harajuku restaurant in Shimokitazawa; MADOSH! Avocado restaurant. Oh the good life.
