Yesterday Things  
Always interesting(!) when you run into hordes of riot cops in Tokyo on the way to the post office. I wonder what that rally/demonstration-type shindig next to Ueno station was all about?

So, I get a good seat on a short haul on the Yamanote, and I'm tempted to sit there past my station a while. I wonder what that means? I guess it probably means I'm the sort of person who likes to sit on the Yamanote as it goes around for a couple loops. At any rate, I got off at my station, as I'd already done (slept through?) a full continuous loop earlier that day.

Off to Shin-Osaka today. Maybe Kyoto if the weather cooperates, which doesn't seem likely... All weekend. Oh, well, it'll still be there next time, and not that hard to get to.

Really? That's a very interesting location.

Of course, my friend who I met last night in Shibuya (same one as who had the wedding that I came for, who lives in Yokohama, originally from Hiroshima, or more towards Kure, specifically) had no idea where Uguisudani was, either. And she's local(-ish).

Sometimes people think I'm a bit odd for staying there ("hey, isn't that near Saitama?" I've been asked), but it's a lot quieter (and a bit cheaper) than the Shibuya/Shinjuku side of town.

"Running into riot cops on the way to the post office" would be a good title for a book.

A book someone else should write.

They were looking for you. Your disguise held up. ;-)
