Six Months In Japan and Counting

I have now made the half year mark of living in Japan and to tell you the truth it doesn't feel like I've been here that long at all. A funny thing is no matter how long I have been here, I still get a "wow, such a short time, welcome to Japan!" from the japanese.

Looks like I'll never be anything but the new arrival. Everything's been sweet so far although I'm pretty tired from a usual busy saturday at Yokohama.

These pictures don't fit anywhere else so I've decided to put them here.

The Gf looks quite hot here with a small head of a model courtesy of the recent Metropolis english magazine. I'm glad there is SOMETHING to read here in english.

This was seen in a japanese sweet shop window in Gion, Kyoto. What are those dogs doing to each other? Hmm.. Notice the Azuki rice balls nearby.

This is a poster of something I was hoping to take a photo of in Tokyo (This was in Gion as well).

It's a japanese production of "Jesus Christ Superstar" which from this poster I had decided to call it instead, "Kabuki Jesus".

This is an "outtake" from the Kyoto trip. I like the photo so here it is. Red or Blue Pill?

Oh, who could forget the "Super Smile" supermarket on the way to Fushimi Inari, Kyoto? Uh, I did. here it tis.

Last but not least, i have to mention that I have been called "Sampleman" by the Gf, from my insistent need to try any food samples that we happen to come across in food areas. I like it. It makes me feel like a superhero. This is also from Kyoto.

She comes up with some great ones. You have to love "power pants". I'll leave that for you guys to work out on your own.
