I'm sure that most people understand just how much Japanese people love Karaoke. It is absolutely true! There are Karaoke places all over Kyoto. One of the things that I really wanted to do while here was to give it a try so yesterday I had my chance as Kay, Martin, Maya, Satochan, Tachan, Toa and myself went to Yamashina and sang our hearts out :) Here is how it works. It costs 80 yen (about a dollar) per half hour per person and this includes your drinks, either alcoholic or non alcoholic. Very cheap! We were given a private room as is everyone else. Before we knew it 2 hours and many drinks had come and gone. It was a lot of fun and I would definitely do it again some day. And just in case you were wondering, I was not offered a recoding contract ............... this time! I still have my hopes up thought.
