This is London, not Antartica, so why don't the tubes run all night,
You are my Girlfriend, not Molly Ringwald, so why won't you stay here tonight,
This is sixth form poetry not Keats or Yeats, and now we find the part that we both hate.

We love the city because it lets us down, We love the city NOT the suburbs that surround.
We love all the dirty things, that lead us to think, that maybe true love could be found.
We love the city because its how we live, We love the city cause it never loves us back.
We love it all because sometimes, even though they're hard to find, it contains all the virtues we lack.

(Hefner "We Love The City")

Raccoon-dog

(viewed 1696 times)
Versions of this fella (this one in our hotel garden in Kyoto) seem to
be everywhere in Japan, outside hotels and shops. We found him a bit
scary, so we asked the front desk what he actually was and what he was
for. The answer was just "raccoon-dog". Obviously.

I'll have to look up the name of this place another time... memory fails me.

Wedding

(viewed 1670 times)
Managed to catch this as we walked towards a temple. (Was a bit unsure
if it was rude to take a photo, but then noticed lots of other people
doing so... so took a quick one!)The wedding dress was amazing - all folded fabric.

Shinjuku

(viewed 1676 times)
Took this out the window of the bus on the way to Mount Fuji. It was
pouring with rain and I half expected to see Harrison Ford running
through the crowds in pursuit of a replicant.

1) Tasha and I pose for the obligatory tourist shot.

2)Ritual cleansing - people queue to wash their hands and face before entering the temple and shrines.

Temple, Mount Fuji 5th Station

(viewed 2209 times)
The weather wasn't on our side the day we visited Mount Fuji - so no view, but the mist created a ceratin atmosphere.

Harajuku

Someone pointed out to me that this photo captures a bit of a random cross-section of Tokyo society: the schoolgirls, the salaryman, the tourist, the punk kids...
