Nowadays in Japan, like the rest of the world, movies can be watched at Netflix, Amazon, Hulu…
I watch them on the train.
I used to go home by Shinkansen (super express) from Tokyo to Hiroshima.
It takes about five hours.
I buy a lunch box at Tokyo Station, a cup of coffee inside the train and listen to music.
I get happy with eating lunch, drinking coffee and listening.
I can enjoy them……….. till Kyoto or Osaka.
On arriving at Kobe, three hours from Tokyo, I am always aware that boredom reaches to the max.
I get full with food, coffee and music.
I cannot sleep on the train well, so I begin to think a lot.
Many of them are useless, LOL.
After Okayama, I finally see my destination – Hiroshima.
My happiness reaches the max as I get relieved that I can get out of a train.
Now with Netflix or baseball on the computer,
I can easily spend those five hours, watching them.
I watch movies at gym, running and walking. I give myself an excuse why I watch movies – it is for my English study. So I don’t watch Japanese movies.
I get happy when I understand English of persons in a movie while some are really hard to understand.
The other day, I ran into an actor whose English was extremely difficult to understand.
His name is Russell Crowe.
I will talk about him next time.
