Escalator etiquette/Этикет эскалаторов


Once on an escalator, pretty much everyone who is not in a rush steps to the left on the escalator so that whoever is in a rush may run by them.

Любой человек неважно где, который никуда не спешит, как только встает на эскалатор, стоит на левой стороне ступеньки так, чтоб те, кто спешат, могли пробежать по своим делам.

Так что это за розовая штука в супе, снизу справа на фотографии? Это камабоко, обработанная белая рыба.

A real treat/Настоящий гостинец

A real treat this winter -- salted herring roe. Not too expensive, only 198 yen per quarter-pound.

Деликатес -- икра сельди. И недорого, всего 198 иен за 100 грамм.
