Now that I got all that Star Wars flim-flam off my chest, I can get back to the usual irrelevant posting. Back to the choice pics from my trip to Japan!
Did you know Japan has temples and shit? Like, a million of them. They are often pretty.
And are full of fascinating historical stuff.
This temple was famous for having 500 carved statues of monks!
Each one is different with its own unique face. This guy was my fave. He had a cool scary guy face.
This monk was opening his heart like in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.
This one is super hungover.
Actually, Japan has a lot of amazing statues. Kids probably have a lot of nightmares.
Later we went to a small shrine where you wash your money in water, put your hands on two snakes, then say "Mecca lecca hi, mecca hiney ho" and you're supposed to get more money in the future. Did not work.
Later we went to "Ye Olde Town" and saw these two on a date. Dating in Japan is complicated.
The town was really neat and had that ye olde look down.
I ate pickled lizard dick on a stick or something. It was pretty good. I had like 5, actually.
I also saw one of those famous Japanese super fly crazy vans! I've always wanted to see one!
Look at this shit!
This is a bathroom in Tokyo. All bathrooms in Japan have funny pictures of butt stuff. Notice the one on the right is for girls only. I used it anyway!!!!
Japan also has lots of public service posters that are super cute! This dude's about to bite the big one. In the cutest way! Look at the train's face!
The next day, we went to Tokyo Hands. Which is not a hand store. But a place where you can buy household goods, with faces and funny things on them. Like a not super cheap Daiso.
Need a USA FRAG Mirror?
Need a stick?
How about a squeezable realistic mushroom thing? Note the hand for scale.
Couldn't read the Japanese. Is this supposed to give you a camel toe? Is that the joke?
I don't even think Japanese people understood this.
This I understood.
I wonder what "My Lord" means to Japanese people? Good shopping?
For some reason, this Green Peas guy always makes me happy. I end up seeing him like a zillion times when I go to Tokyo, because of where I've stayed.
This figure was called a "Noodle Stopper." Which is ironic, because there's no way she could stop my noodle. I spent about 25 bucks and did not win her. It was depressing.
This is my friend who loves Moe (pronounced Mo-eh). Anime about little girls. He says it's not dirty. I asked him to pose by these Moe girls. Look at how hard he's trying to play it cool.
This is a Japanese girl who turned down my hand in marriage.
