Random Pics from Sep '08
Japan has the highest number of vending machines per capita, with apparently about one machine for every 23 people. So far I have seen ones that sell soft drinks, beer, coffee, sake, snacks (very rare!) newspapers, cigs...and yes, am still waiting to see one of them used panties ones...!!
In the spirit of Kaicoloness, I find these towering giant powerlines...kaicolo-worthy.
When sugarcane trains are the only trains you have seen your entire life...passenger trains (and tracks for that matter) are fascinating indeed!
This will forever be a reminder of the first time me and a couple of other newbies at the dorm got properly lost. We (They...i didnt get a bike till xmas eve but more on that later!) went to buy used bikes a few stations away and since the bikes could not be carried back on the train we had to find our way back to the dorm using a very confusing map...even Japanese people get lost in Japan so it wasn't THAT embarrasing.
The river ofcourse came into the picture, when close to giving up we decided to follow the river because a river runs past a park near our dorm too. We did make it back to the dorm that day...3hours later.
