Street Snap of the Day 今日のストリートスナップ #15

This girl was standing outside a "Konbini" in Shin-Okubo, Korea Town.

"Konbini" comes from the word "Convenience" which is pronounced "Konbiniensu" in Japanese.
A typical example of a "Kombini" is Seven-Eleven.

She was eating ice-cream from the Kombini which is called "Kombini-Aisu".
Japanese people love to make expressions as short as possible.

If you were to say it originally it would be "Konbiniensu Aisu Kuriimu" so you can understand why they want to make it shorter. =)

This is called "Ryaku-Go" which means "Shortened Language".

After a while her boy friend came out. 
Gotta love these fashionable couples!!^^


  1. Love this! i think she appeared in the same outfit on another blog

  2. Lishan:


    Maybe her life is to just walk around town and get photographed for blogs... ;D
