Some observations on Japan and its culture: -
|It's like ET's finger* appears and squirts|
warm water up your jacksy.....
* At least I hope it was his finger.....
While smoking is pretty much banned outdoors in Japan– people are allowed – almost encouraged even - to smoke indoors in restaurants, bars café’s e.t.c…how mixed up is that? Many a decent coffee or meal was ruined when someone close by lit up and proceeded to smoke us out.....
|I love that this health conscious individual|
stands amongst the smokers wearing a
mask in an attempt to avoid the effects
of secondary smoking ....
|Before dropping the mask and|
having a crafty puff.....
Obviously first hand
smoking is OK....
The worlds largest fish market ....
Which a picture of three men cutting
up a Tuna hardly does justice too...
|Japan's answer to Mr Churchill|
|An attempt at an arty shot....|
more of those next time...
|The bright lights of Tokyo...|
|Autumn was almost here....Just waiting for|
us to leave before breaking out in to it's
full season wear...
|Mrs B wondering if the six hour trip to see|
a Bl**dy waterfall was really worth it.....
|He looks like an extra from a Wallace|
and Gromit movie...
|Shin-Kyo Bridge - Nikko|
fortunately bridges don't
close in the evenings...
|While we didn't find any fire breathing|
dragons we did come across this
rather splendid water spitting one.....
|Not entirely sure what these are but they |
look nice and authentic Japanese....which
probably mean they are Chinese imports....
|Mrs B manages to wreck a priceless|
|Apple notes in the new IOS 6 release|
was proving to be a bit restricted. The
only way to delete the message was to
eat the product ....
|I so hope this sign translates as|
"Do not photograph this sign!"
|This Carp has forgotten that|
Red Nose day is typically
held in March....
Or is he attempting
to dress as Autumn
Mrs B and Mega Mini Beast
|Looks like looking at dead fish is a big hobby in Japan|
|Even in death these two lovers were inseparable....|
|Here's that sick squid I owe you....|
Please note this is a vocal joke and probably requires
you to be British and clinically dead before you find
it mildly amusing ....
|The autopsy was inconclusive but putting down|
"drowned" as cause of death was probably a mistake....
|These just look like little snots -|
I suspect when they are put on
a menu they get some fancy
This probably explains why I
don't write menu's for a living...
|Catch of the day...|
|Now that's just shellfish.....|
|The end product......|
