Apparently this hasn't happened in Japan in over 900 years so I'm glad I woke up for it. But I experienced a huge culture shock shortly after when my boyfriend and I went on an adventure to find a restaurant that served pancakes for breakfast. Apparently, you can't eat pancakes whenever you like in countries besides America. Not even at 8 am in Japan! I will totally use this memory to justify my pancake over-consumption when I return to the States.
