Wacky Tokyo

It’s been awhile since I’ve done a “look at the funny stuff I’m seeing” post, and yes, this one includes a funny anglicization or two. I’ve loved my time in Tokyo. I’ve been fortunate enough to stay with a generous host and her adorable child, and I’ve had great weather that makes every park, shrine, and neon-lit street a pleasure to explore. Also, I keep coming across the funny, wacky sights that every big city offers up. On Wednesday, I leave Tokyo for London–what weird and wonderful things will I see there?

  1. Asia is general is weird for Westerners, which is why it’s such a trip to hang out there. I did all the same kinds of things in Seoul — I had a pencil and jotted down the odd things in Konglish that I read on people’s t-shirts. This blog is beyond cool. Godspeed, Lisa! Keep ’em coming!

Dearest Fellow Travelers, tell me what you're thinking!
