Just a few images from an outing to Yoyogi Koen with friends on Sunday.
Meiji Shrine is a special place to the Japanese, but it also has a personal connection for me. On my first trip to Japan it was the place I visited on my last day here. It was raining, my feet were killing me, and I knew I was headed home in a few hours. It was a depressing afternoon, and I wanted to revisit the place under different circumstances. It was sunny, I was in no hurry and there was no return ticket burning a hole in my pocket.
Here’s a video of a bunch of Japanese guys who were having a throwdown with another group of Japanese guys (and a girl) with rockabilly dance moves. Very strange indeed – I love this country.
