Walking TOKIO TŌKYŌ TOKYOΒ² β€” Winter Edition


dismal view of the go-kart tours held by a large number of locals, many of whom find the modified vehicles to be noisy, annoying and dangerous.

Tourists return to Japan, and Mario Karts return to Tokyo roads with them

What do you do when you find yourself with free time? Smoke a cigarette, if you’re into it, or edit a couple of photos.

I’m feeling a “Down Memory Lane” mood… I might start going through these again.

If you’ve ever been to a major city in Japan, you’ve seen modern pachinko parlors. They’re almost impossible to ignore.

Modern Pachinko: The Game That Definitely Isn’t Gambling!

We could tell we were getting close to one by the intense cigarette smell that came out of them.


Back to Japan

It’s taking WAY longer than I wanted, but I’m finally back to the post on Japan for dinkiwinkiminkiwinki.

The post keeps getting longer, and there’s still a lot to write. Picking the photos won’t be easy either, there are hundreds to chose from.

Every time tinyMovieStar hears “Japan” she says “Xapao”… I wonder who she got that from? πŸ‡―πŸ‡΅πŸ₯°


Gave up on the last one, and started this right after the vaccine shot.

Happy Place

No photos for a few posts, so here goes one. Back to a place with so many happy memories: Tokyo.

Deus Ex Machina Harajuku. Nice spot.

I Just Want to go Back

It’s not the first on the list, because PrΓ­ncipe will always be on the top, it doesn’t even enter any list. Japan is the place I dream of, when I’m sleeping, and when I’m awake.

Ulysses goes to Japan

Trying new things, a little like visiting new places.

Sometimes you love them, others not so much.

You can always go back.

The Boss

One of the first things that comes to mind when I reminisce about Japan is the coffee from the vending machines. I loved it.

I noticed Tommy Lee Jones on a few of the machines, but wasn’t aware this is a campaign that’s been going for so long.

Another sighting.

One day we’ll go back. Not the two of us, now three.

Rain will probably keep us from walking today. So we’re reminiscing…

Today I would love to be here. Not the fanciest place, but felt good when we were there…
