Remembrance Day

Ryozen Kannon is a "war memorial commemorating the War dead of the Pacific war located in Eastern Kyoto". When you pay the small entrance fee, you get an incense stick which you burn in front of the statue, taking a moment to reflect on the madness of it all.

Around Kiyomizu-dera

Like I mentioned yesterday, the streets around the temple are a great area to wander aimlessly, and get a little lost.

Kiyomizu-dera

Kiyomizu-dera is a Unesco world heritage site, so it's serious business. It's a 1200 year old temple, which unfortunately needed a bit of touch up when I was there. With the thousands of tourists passing through daily, I can see why. Here are some impressions :)

Impressions from Kyoto

After one night in Tokyo, I moved on to Kyoto and stayed there for almost a week. On the first day, I checked out "The Philosopher's Path"; this turned out to be a charming little path along a creek, dotted with temples and shrines where a traveler might pause and contemplate for a bit. If you do it right, you come back all enlightened. Here are some impressions from walking to, from, and in the general vicinity of "eastern Kyoto minus the World Heritage bits which I'll do later".

Asia HD - VII

Wow, an entire two month stay in Japan and I have pretty much zero pictures that I like. I suck at photography! So why don't I drop any pretense and just make this a cozy trip down memory lane, for Old Times Sake(tm).

The very first post on this blog is a dreadful shot of Tokyo, in the amazing resolution of 600 x 450 pixels. That's not even half of what I use today -- 1515 x 1024.

BI-FU

Despite all the computers, rfid tags, automated warehouses and live tracking, our store sometimes gets deliveries that are for other shops.. And who knows where stuff we ordered but never got, actually ended up. But you know food production has truly become global when a Tom&Co shop in Kuurne, Belgium, suddenly receives this:...

This guy is a cross-over between Batou from Ghost in the Shell, and Davy Crockett. What are priests smoking these days.

Psychomime

While browsing a Japanese dictionary, I one day discovered the existence of a linguistic category, unique to that language: the psychomime. It's an interesting thing, and I'm wondering if there wouldn't perhaps be a word or two in English that might also classify as a psychomime...
