Will Miss #84 - Japanese superstitions

During one of my private lessons, the student noticed that there was a spider crawling down the wall not too far from her. She didn't freak out, but rather said, "oh you're lucky". I asked her why and she said that seeing a spider at night was lucky, but then she said maybe it was lucky in the morning. All cultures have their superstitions, but I've always enjoyed experiencing new ones in real life situations like the one I previously detailed. Sure, I could read about them, but that is sterile and not very memorable.

I'll miss learning about Japanese superstitions from the people who live here.
