Random Japan Photos

Sometimes I’ll be walking alongside my man in Japan and he’ll have to turn back to see where I went. Usually because I’ve found something interesting to snap. Either “this could be useful for the blog” or “that’s amusing” goes through my head and I have to stop and take a quick photo. And often they’re good or useful and I share them on the blog or spam twitter or the fancier ones get instagrammed. But then I have a collection of ones that never make it anywhere.

Enjoy some random Japan photos from 2 to 4 weeks ago as the title says.

random-disneytrain-osaka

Ladies only wrapped train in Osaka for Tokyo Disney. Osaka seems to have the most wrapped trains of any city in Japan.

random-blackmen-underwear

The awkward crotch shots and horrible names of Donki underwear.

random-jelly-yukata-ad

Covered shopping area near Shinsaibashi. Yukata and Kimono store on the left is advertising Jelly’s Kimono issue.

random-okadaya-fabric

Lovely wa fabrics in Okadaya Shinjuku. Need to be crafty or buy make-up or hairdye? Okadaya in Shinjuku is a great central place.

random-rienda-fabricmist

Rienda just released their fabric softener and fabric mist both for 900 yen each ($8.50). This ad was in Osaka Shinsaibashi OPA cosmetic store. A little regret I didn’t purchase.

random-shinkansen-view

I absolutely love countryside views from a train. This was on a Shinkansen heading to Osaka.

random-toilet-rolls-ichiran

Popular Fukuoka ramen chain Ichiran had this crazy set-up of toilet rolls in their Ikebukuro location restroom.

 random-hiroshima-sunset

The lack of daylight savings time in Japan makes twilight early, like here in Hiroshima.

random-twilight-skytree-tokyo

Or at the base of Sky Tree in Tokyo.

random-hotel-zeebra-ikebukuro

The forever tacky long standing Love Hotel “Hotel Zebra” in Ikebukuro.

random-kitten-milk-gatchapon

“Let the kittens drink their milk” Gatchapon from a Hiroshima gamesen.

random-rne-heel

The crazy and cool heel at R & E inside Hiroshima Parco.

random-osaka-lowrider

Chicano style lowrider in Osaka. There’s an interesting lowrider culture in Japan where the fans also dress in the subculture style (see a video from an Odaiba meet). If you want to see good tricked out cars in Japan, Amemura in Osaka on a weekend is one of the best places to spot them.
