Japanese Sumo Torture

Forget Chinese Water Torture! To bring your enemy to his knees, I recommend springing for this eighty dollar patch of real estate at a Japanese Sumo tournament! Today I attended the Yokosuka Sumo Tournament. Here are the photos on Picasa with no sign-in required, (you're welcome, Dad.)

Kyoto: The Road Trip From Hell

As previously mentioned, we stopped in Kyoto first before heading to Osaka. With only one day to explore, we squeezed in as many temples as possible. This was taken at the largest temple for those who wanted to go inside to pray. Here are the scant photos of Kyoto but don't worry--we're already planning our next trip back.

Where the Hip, Horny Kids Go

Last month, we FINALLY got to travel a bit and headed to Kyoto for a day and Osaka for two. It wasn't enough time for either city! Here's the link to the Osaka photos.
Inspired by Bourdain's visit to Osaka, we ate what he ate and tried to walk where he walked. Check out the photos and see--that town rocked!

So just a "Drug Body" is . . . Courtney Love?

I've never had a drug body or a drug store body, but apparently, this is the latter.

Sure He Can Act--Act Like It's Cool to Sell Out!

Pitt's face is everywhere right now as he's not only getting overpaid to hold a mobile up to his head and act engaged but he's also gazing afar for clothing co. Edwin. Ahem....if you read this blog at least remotely often, you're familiar with that post! (Shin Osaka JR station.)

No Profound Winged Insects to Be Found...

To think this poor restaurant actually PAID some company to print and/or design this menu for them! All I can picture is some beatnik-type, black turtleneck and shades wearing fly smoking a cigarette and going "yeah..man, intense."
Oh...food was good though FYI:)

Yokosuka Blossoms

The Cherry Blossom were 100% bloomed a few days ago. The weather has been so terrible that today was the first day to get a photos of these almost week-old blossoms. Click this link to see the rest of the photos. These photos are for those of you that used to live in Japan that have a special place in your heart for cherry blossoms, or "sakura," especially those from Yokosuka Base.
