“I work the night shift at a convenience store. I show up for work at 10 pm then clock out in the morning at 6 am. Because they can’t hire young Japanese people, lately there are more foreigners like myself doing this kind of job in Japan. Not gonna lie, it’s tough. Especially the language. I’m still learning Japanese at a ‘senmon gakkou’ (vocational school). I hope to become proficient and maybe find a girlfriend. Any nationality will do. But today I’m busy helping out to promote Vietnamese food. Here, take a flier.”
