A young girl chatting on the phone while standing next to a life-size print ad of AKB48 ( for NTT Docomo ) seemed too good a photo opportunity to miss.
So I just returned from a 10 day trip to Japan and dare I say how universally stupid was I to choose the Golden Week to visit ? Traffic on the expressways were unbelievable, the weather, which should have been of a pleasant, Spring like nature, was instead belching out a dampening mix of torrential rain on some days, scorching desert sun on others, topping off with a climatic tornado. I was down with a bad cold and then fever for the last 3 days of the trip.
Despite all these mishaps I did manage to take a size-able collection of pictures ( quality yet to be determined, ahem ), had my fill of Tokyo food and of course, the Otomo Genga Exhibition was divine. I must of course once again thank my good friends Takeshi & Kojima for being the best hosts, as always.
Regular posting will resume momentarily.9
