Visa Acquired and QR codes

I got the visa! It's all shiny haha. My student visa from five years ago was sort of shiny, but this one is super shiny haha. It is a three year visa which is really awesome. I basically am given about three or four months to enter the country (which I am doing in two weeks haha), and it is a single entry visa. So that means I will need to purchase a multiple entry permit when I enter the country so that if I decide to leave for a trip during my time living in Japan, I can re-enter the country no problem.

Ever since I did a project that required me to seamlessly integrate a QR code into a poster, I get really excited when I see a good execution of a QR code in everyday life. This is a Macy's QR code that I thought was nicely integrated with the star. I honestly think it could do without the white outlining the whole square (since it isn't needed to make the code work. The three little squares do). But then again, not everyone might get that it is a QR code right away. Anyway, something I thought was nice.
