In Japan I stayed with my sister Jutta near Isehara. She teaches English: http://pictures.natalian.org/japan/2005/apr/8/13:51:38/200x150
I arrived in Japan, just in time for the Cherry Blossoms: http://pictures.natalian.org/japan/2005/apr/8/14:01:13/200x150
One thing that strikes you about Japan, is how weird all the electronic stuff is. Guess what this is: http://pictures.natalian.org/japan/2005/apr/9/13:17:07/200x150 http://pictures.natalian.org/japan/2005/apr/9/12:14:17/200x150 First is an ATM, the other is a hand drier.
She lives near the super sexy city of Yokohama: http://pictures.natalian.org/japan/2005/apr/9/13:48:13/200x150
I went there again for a rave with my sister: http://pictures.natalian.org/japan/2005/apr/10/13:03:11/200x150 And her friends: http://pictures.natalian.org/japan/2005/apr/10/17:48:13/200x150
I hate raves.
Wednesdays were big nights. First to Free Culture in Fujusawa then Wesleys. People usually get naked in Wesleys: http://pictures.natalian.org/japan/2005/apr/14/03:29:42/200x150
Partying is expensive and there is a working class culture of staying out all night and getting smashed. Sometimes I stayed home while my sister was out, to save money: http://pictures.natalian.org/japan/2005/apr/18/04:23:47/200x150
One of the best things about Japan, is the gorgeous food: http://pictures.natalian.org/japan/2005/apr/22/22:31:24/200x150
Jutta's friends were very generous.
It doesn't look very populated, but it is. There are zillions more Japanese than you think.
Hopefully I will be able to prepare a part 2 to Japan. Else hold tight for Melbourne.
