If I got my hands on 20,000 yen I think I’d buy some glasses. I want to get new frames because I managed to break my last pair when I fell off my bike. I want to get some plastic, square-framed ones — Weezer-style.

I would perhaps take Kyoko out for some kind of nice dinner, though I’m not sure that 20,000 yen is enough to pay for a really nice dinner in Tokyo. I reckon I could probably stretch to a McDonalds Happy Meal though.
I’d definitely go and get a full-body massage with the cash — a massage with aromatherapy. I actually do treat myself to a massage about once a month, but I don’t think I’ve ever gone and spent 20,000 yen on one.
I’d probably buy myself a nice hat. I think something with a brim, possibly pork-pie or slightly gangster style would be good. I don’t “do” baseball caps, though. I think that I would wear my new hat at a slightly jaunty angle.
I would buy a fabric with a beautiful pattern and rich colors. I’m not sure if I’d just hang it up in my place or make something simple like a skirt — I would let the material be the hero, though. Or I would give it to my mum.

Actually, I’m crazy about knitting right at the moment so I reckon I would buy some very nice wool, in olive or mustard or light purple. I have a lot of plans in my head as to what I’d do with it, though I think I’d maybe make a dress.
