A boy eating ice cream with chopsticks.

July 18th, 2013, 7pm

It was 31°C with few clouds. There was moderate breeze.

It’s a bit unusual to see people eating away from a table in Japan. Not completely unheard of, but not something you see everyday.

All of which made it all the more odd to see a schoolboy chatting to his friends while casually eating ice cream with a set of chopsticks. Given the heat, it really wasn’t a bad idea as he seemed to be able to get in a lot more in one bite than is usually the case with the tiny plastic spoon you’re given.

I'm an Australian living in Japan. I don't eat peas as much as I once did.
