Tokyo Boring: Ginza Streets

Posted in Places by tokyobling on March 18, 2011

Dear all, even though it is against my nature and it’s against the purpose of this blog, we must all make sacrifices, and so now I call upon you to do your duty and check out these really boring photos from Tokyo. This is Ginza, one day in January. It might as well have been today. There is no visual change in Tokyo, shops are still open, people are getting on with their lives and we’re all in fine spirits and doing our best to stay healthy. Sure, there have been scheduled power cuts, but this is mostly because of the unexpected colds spell that has hit us. It’s mid-March but weather wise it is mid-Winter. So, people use more energy to heat their homes and so we must cut the power to more areas to make sure the people up north get as much power as they possibly can.

The situation with the nuclear power plant is now rated second on news, we have returned to the far more important job of worrying and caring for the people still in dire need of assistance in the increasingly cold north.

But unless you read Japanese news, you probably have no idea what is really going on in Japan, hence my series of blog posts on Boring Tokyo.

Here’s some boring scenes from Ginza. This is what it looks like today (but the actual photos are from January, I didn’t want to post them before, since they are so boring). I’ll post more photos taken today, in a few minutes. Hang on there.

      I noticed that, too.

      Isn’t he superb? Or should I have said sublime?

      Yes, sublime.

        Sublime? Of fleet footed? I think it is a different guy though. There’s a few of them. Beggar monks have a long tradition in Japan! (^-^)
