Tokyo, Enough Said.

Famous artist Fuka Mariwo teaching me to play the Shamisen, a traditional Japanese instrument.

Bump of Chicken rocking out on one of the huge movie screens high above traffic








The ubiquitous vending machine, even on remote corners.



Noteworthy public bathroom hospitality


Open air You Tube recording studio on a street corner





This is how I ordered this food (rice with a grits coating)


two nights ago


[imagine a photo here of a diminutive 85 year old man on a train station platform wearing a hat that says “Too Drunk to Fuck. “]


Ridged and bumped lines to help blind people leading from sidewalk into a large office building



Tokyo National Museum


The only national flag I’ve seen in first four days in Japan. Like Germany, most likely a refutation of an imperialistic-nationalistic past.








Shinto shrine


An original flame kept burning continuously from the flaming destruction wrought by the atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, in 1945


Buddha


Confluence of Buddhism and Shinto faiths (Buddha on left, prayers written on votive tablets in Shinto style on right)





More later… Party on for now! Got to get back to Death Match in Hell (see above)…
