Every Friday night we headed for Apre, a bar in the Katamachi entertainment district. Apre has a pool table, English-speaking bartenders, and darts, but the thing we went there for was
Apre had a single (reservable) Karaoke room. We'd settle in for the evening and work the selection in the Karaoke machine. The teachers and staff from Eurocentres often came along, as seen here where the Senseis Three (Yamamori-sensei, Kojima-sensei, and Osada-sensei) perform.
Since the second outing was my last night in Kanazawa, we had a merry crew along. Yamamori-sensei and Kojima-sensei sang me a sentimental Japanese ballad, "sayonara daisuke hito" (or "Farewell Favorite Person")... How could I not like that! (middle picture below). In general we had a late night of it...
Thanks to Harry the Cat for all the tacky animated GIFs. I couldn't have done it myself.
