Japan Trip - Postlude

Japan had a lot of the things we were expecting, and also some surprises (of course).

Things we saw:

  • Trains
  • Mountains
  • People, people, people!
  • Skyscrapers
  • Girls in anime costumes
  • Men with massive hair in unnatural colors
  • Fish
  • Temples, shrines, and castles
  • Ninja maze (complete with English-speaking ninjas!)
  • Vending machines that sell nearly everything
  • Kids in school uniforms (including matching hats and knee-high socks)
  • Toilets with more buttons than my washing machine

Things we didn’t see:

  • Earthquakes
  • Tsunamis
  • Godzilla
  • Flying robots
  • Talking fuzzy animals
  • Paper towels

Just goes to show that you can’t believe everything you read.
