Theft proof. Can you see the little barrier keeping people out from stealing the cases of beer, cola and other drinks? In Shinagawa station there are a ton of little shops to eat at, shop at, have a drink, or just take a break. It’s like a mini mall.. except 95% of the people just rush through making their transfers from one train to another.
Yea, that beer would be gone in like two seconds in the states…Most people are just too honest here.. which is usually a good thing. You could drop 10,000 yen ($100), and somebody would pick it up and give it back to you… even if nobody else is watching!
Lost? ‘Mama-chari’ some of the biggest, baddest have a seat in back for the kids from about 3years old.. they look like full blown Recaro racing seats! five point buckles, full shoulder flares and neck support… oh, and another on the front (on or before the handlebar), for a younger kid. Of course with electric assist motors!
This one I shot is just a cheapie…10,000 yen? ($100?)
Plum or Apricot. Of course you can buy your own ‘ume-shu’ or ‘shin-liu-chu’ (anzu-shu, or apricot liquor). I’ll be making my own in a few weeks. Just have to go find some fresh ume! Soon to be sold in stores…!
Last year I made my own.. I used a photo for a Weekly Photo Challenge, here
iPhone case? Having an ‘old’ iPhone has its downsides.. finding a decent case for a 4S is a little hard when everything is made for the 5…
They still have some 4S cases, but they’re pretty ugly!
I’ve been looking for one (4S case) for more than a month now… too many ugly ones.. lol
Mock Strawberry. Duchesnea Indica An invasive plant from India apparently. It’s more of a weed than anything. But looks just like a strawberry, doesn’t it? I’ve read that you can eat it, but is not sweet and rather tasteless.
Even in the middle of Tokyo there are plenty of green patches of flowers and trees. Obviously looking up makes it seem like there is nothing but a concrete jungle. Looking down, however, you seem to find all sorts of goodies….
