|My new bicycle|
In Japan, 90% of all bicycles are silver colored, so finding your own bicycle inside the university is sometimes challenging. There are about a hundred other bicycles looking more or less the same heaped around your own bicycle. I usually search for the color of the lock, which is often the most distinguishing detail. The type of bicycle I bought (pictured above) is called a "mama chari", where "chari" is Japanese for bicycle and "mama" means mother. It is a type of uncool bicycles used by housewives when they go shopping etc. It is also the most common and most practical bicycle to have.
