Ok, I don’t have a joke for that, but if anyone can come up with something, I’d love to hear it.

My first few days in Japan were weird.  But once I was back in Tokyo, they stayed weird.  Japan was weird.  I saw Godzilla when I was lost in Shinjuku, animals dressed as celebrities, most notable the tiny dog Michael Jackson, and best of all, in one alley next to a coffee shop I frequented, these weird little wombat things with hats on and a taxidermied wolf.  Yeah.

I didn’t notice the wolf the first day I walked by and I’m not sure how I missed it.  It is in a pretty big glass box.  And then when I did go look at it, I didn’t get too close.  Just in case.  You know.

Japan has a lot going for it weirdness aside.  The people are friendly, even if there is a language barrier.  It is just so efficient.  The temples are pretty cool.  The tempura is delicious.  And sumo wrestling.
