For those of you unaware of the meaning in either language, it means "fairytale". Yes, I had a very Cinderella-esque evening out in Sapporo last Friday. I met up with my mate who I learnt has a fancy for all things cute, sweet (both in terms of taste and metaphorically), and well, rather feminine, perhaps. He's male. And straight. But he's also Japanese. That could explain a lot.
The first place he took me to was this amazing bar which sold soft serve ice-cream and had over a hundred different liqueurs. You could choose up to 3 each, depending on what "set" you ordered on the menu, so we had a delicious selection of 7 liqueurs between us as they gave us an extra one free (hurrah amazing Japanese customer service). The liqueurs were brought to us in adorable tiny plastic wine cups with tiny little spoons, and you poured the liqueur over your spoonfuls of ice-cream. Then, for dessert, they brought coffee and hand-made just baked tiny cookies. Could a girl ask for more?! It was wonderful. And the shop itself was adorable with all it's décor. Most definitely will go there again. Either with my girl friends or other misleadingly gay-but-not-really guy friends.
