Geez, I realized I've only blarged half my trip! Here's another chunk!!!
I brought my money underwear from America to Japan, but also bought some there! I call them "Monderwear!"
Found a cute vegetable on the way to see the Daibutsu, or Giant Buddha.
Japan's pretty good at making shit look cool. Wanna make shit look cool? Put a bunch of these things in a row.
We went to a fox temple, which is famous for having thousands of these little foxes around. It must be quite a job to put them everywhere and 'em pick them up when they fall over.
This is the giant buddha. Some really bored monks made it way back in the day.
Here's where the jets come out when it flies around fighting giant monsters.
It was right next to an amazing ninja shop!
I bought all of these!
I don't know what this is, but it looked neat and you can't see this kind of stuff in America.
Everything really is cute in Japan. Even the manhole covers!
The next day we went to Aksakusa, which is kinda hard to say. Everybody goes here, but with good reason, it's pretty bonkers.
There are many shops filled with authentic Japanese treasures.
Like kid's ninja costumes!
I'm being teasy, but it really is a beautiful area!
Like many tourist areas, there was a caricature artist nearby who did really flattering paintings of people. I was sorely tempted!
There's also ninjas a shit on the buildings watching everyone.
Oh, and their local mascot, everywhere in Japan has a local mascot, is an orange hand.
My friend thought the food was tasty!
When I was drunk, I really thought this looked like E.T. Does it?
Anyway, if you get a chance to go there, do it! It's really beautiful! It's almost like Japan figured out--if you keep your country clean and have tons of beautiful stuff, a fuckton of people will want to go there and give you money. Genius!
More Tokyo Tower porn.
I'll post more laters! By my own estimate, I'll have finally posted all my pics from this trip by early next November. By my estimate.
