The one thing I love in Japan is how they put objects in the way to try to avoid certain behavior such as parking your bike. Hmmm everyone seems to ignore our ‘No Parking’ signs so let’s try putting some potted flowers in the way to deter people.

This is a very common sight. I think I am going to do a posting on the ‘Cones of Tokyo’ one day as I have so many funny (to me) photos.

I can’t say I have ever wanted to ride the train this badly. I would simply wait for the next one or take a ‘local’ train…

Train Stuffers in Japan

It was a double ‘Stuffer’ day…

I would fall over if I tried to stand like this…

A very enthusiastic Century 21…

I met up with some friends after work for some dinner and drinks…well I was a bit late so I joined them already in progress. This place was called Dosukoi Sakaba Saikai run by a retired Sumo Wrestler. This type of place is called ‘Chanko’ which is the name of any food a Sumo Wrestler eats. A lot of the junior sumo when they first join around age 16 have to cook for the rest of the group. This is one of the first things they learn as a sumo wrestler. A lot of sumo wrestlers open ‘Chanko’ restaurant after retirement.
