When a New Store Opens
This is what people in Niigata do... even though it's JUST a grocery store. Actually, what was really going on is that the store was remodeled. I admit that it looks better than it used to look but, it's just a grocery store! In Japan, people tend to call these grocery stores 'Supas'. In fact, usually there's really nothing super about them. It would be better if they just settled for 'market'. I just don't see a market calling itself 'supa' when it really doesn't have a large selection of anything in particular.
We wouldn't go around calling superman 'supa' if he couldn't fly!
To be fair, some 'supas' are a little more deserving of the title. (There are some good sized 'supas' located in Dekki 401, Josco in Aoyama, and in the basement of Daie Department store in Bandai.)

"2 Special days."
Niigata was where Ireland's first match was played in the 2002 World Cup. We also visited on the day before the game to meet our friend Kiyo. Kiyo lives just around the corner from us in the UK and she was visiting relatives in Nagoya while we were in Japan, she came all the way to see us for a day! it was a brilliant day too....
Our second day was Ireland against Cameroon. The city of Niigata turned green white and orange for the day! We were made incredibly welcome and the event was superbly organised..see much more on the t'logue!
