Today I was surfing around and visited one of my favourite Japan-blogs by Gakuranman. He held a contest about weird things about Japan last July and published the results a few weeks later. Funny to see I recognize a few of them! But my favourit one is the clip posted by Billy about the “Edo music jam”. Billy’s blog-article is here, but I really want to show his clip directly (it’s on u-tube anyway 😉 )
The Land of the Rising Sun has changed into the Land of the Weeping Clouds for today, because it has been raining all day since yesterday-evening. So no adventurous mountain-hiking, temple-hopping or garden-viewing today. Instead I decided for the one remaining sensible thing to do on a rainy monday like today, where all musea are closed (leaving out a few other possibilities that require a large fire, a bottle of single-malt whiskey and / or a pretty lady) and went…..shopping!
