Cashless at a restaurant
Hello, Ty here.
I’ll be taking over for Niko going forward to allow him to keep making more sweet sweet NativShark content.
If you’re in the NativShark community Discord, you likely already know me.
I’ve been living in Fukuoka for the last two years and have zero plans to change that, so I’m excited to share my experiences of living here and all the situations I’ve run into so far and will run into in the future.
Looking forward to sprinkling some Japanese only used in western Japan into my responses as well^^
(Don’t worry, we’ll let you know when I do.)
This week’s prompt
You're at a restaurant you've never been to before. You don't have any cash on you right now, so you ask an employee what else they take.

Last week’s corrections
You work remotely as a translator. While traveling, the charger to your laptop broke, and you haven't been able to find a new one yet. Your editor texts you on LINE and asks when you'll be able to send the translations he is waiting for.
I remember my first few days at the NativShark office.
We got all the furniture set up, including this beautiful 電気ポット(でんきぽっと // electric thermos) that kept the water at the temperature you set it as long as it was plugged in.
I made myself some お～いお茶(お～いおちゃ // a popular tea in Japan), sat down, and…
Promptly spilled tea on my laptop charger. While it was plugged in.
This language came in handy that day for sure.
I ordered a new one from Yodobashi, which is a wonderland I highly recommend visiting when you’re in Japan.
