    Someone needs to tell Hora that being spiritual doesn't make you a good person, and besides being a good person is the best way to get beat up by the world.
    So he should just continue being an asshat.

    ...sadly, saying something like that in Japanese requires extreme subtility and cultural skill that I, as an upfront American, simply do not have.

    Whatever, someone needs to tell Hora he's an asshat XD
    I have no idea if it's true or not, but that's totally not the point.

    Also love is a farce and relationships aren't worth the hassle.
    Maybe Satoko converted to Nichiren Buddhism and is telling him it's quits if he doesn't convert too.

    Edit: Also I lived in Choufu for a bit when I was a student...I don't remember this temple.
    That's most likely because Choufu is fairly large I guess XD

    Eh his last post was about taking the long trek to Jindaiji temple and still being a sinner on the way back.
    Apparently Jindaiji is known for love and marriage woes. Maybe he's having naughty thoughs lol
    Or maybe he mixed up what the temple is for and is currently wondering why the gods haven't found him his limited edition super rare sneakers yet.
    Who knows. If it's about his relationship, it's a bit odd to publish it on Horablog so I'm not reading into it too deeply.

    So answer is: Hora went to a temple and we don't really know why.

    It certainly wasn't a cat so we can't be bothered

    I always get asked by people in Japan if I'm wearing coloured contacts because they can't believe my eye colour is real.

    Today a group of students were so shocked that my eyes really are blue, turns out they thought everyone had brown eyes and foreigners just wore contacts to be fashionable.

    I'm scanning demotapes and live pictures right now, and I had to hold down the tape covers because they kept folding onto themselves so I put a magazine on top of them and...I created an unintentional pop-art collage ahah

    Kaya looks like unicorn barf and Mana's selling Moi Meme Moitie scrunchies.
    Things seem to be going well in the vis kei scene.

    Here's some dinosaurs in high heels. At least the photoshop scene knows what's got to be done.

    Oh look, it's me trying to wear a any shoe that isn't a Chuck Taylor.

    Also, scrunchies belong back in 1990 with acid-wash denim and tucked-in, baggy t-shirts.

    I'm waiting for the Moitie mom jeans, personally.
    Nothing says lolita like a FUPA.
