As I am sure a lot of people have heard Japan is in its usual rainy season and starting it off right with one of the larger Typhoons. I am more inland so this isn’t really effecting me much other than 50 mph winds and a lot of rain.
However near the coast there is tons of evacuations in preparation for what could be a long night for some. The good thing is how resilient the Japanese people are as a whole when it comes to natural disasters. Whether it one of the largest earthquakes in reported history or a barrage of typhoons this country always finds a way to hold its head high and not feel bad for itself.
I have never heard a Japanese person try to use the situations that have happened such as th earthquake as a means to an end such as I was in the earthquake so you should feel sorry for me.
The depressing thing is growing up in America I can think of all the times people jumped up and said you should feel bad for me because this happened to me. What is interesting is how bad things happen all the time all around the world but somehow people can act like whatever happened to them is the worst.
Not everyone is like this in America so I am not saying America as a whole but typically from my experiences this was a common occurrence.
Photo – Shinjuku Teke Teke Bar
While walking around Shinjuku at about 7:30 am I ran into this bar called Teke Teke which from the best of my knowledge is the noise of chickens scattering feet.
I liked the way this building was angled in a corner with 3 paths back to the building.
The entire time I was taking this an older salary man was on his phone walking back and forth almost as if he didn’t see me standing there taking photos.
