Our Man knows the posts have been a bit thin lately, sorry. Well, actually, he's not at all sorry, he's been having a fun time with his Little Sister visiting from the motherland, so he's been busy inductifying her into the Way of the Gaijin in Japan. That has included trips to Onjuku to gawp at the topless mermaids of yesteryear, to Asakusa to gawp at the tourist nick nacks, and Shibuya to gawp at the young fashion victims and geeky gaijin gawping at the young fashion victims.
What's left to do, to do Japan? Well, the budget doesn't spring to a trip to Kyoto, so instead it's three days at the foot of Mount Fuji next to a big ol' lake. If that ain't tourist, Japan, don't know what is, mothafukka.
Anyway, so Our Man will be away from a computer for three whole days (he's sure you are as relieved as he is), so the Japanese General Election and official campaigning starting and all that will just have to jolly well wait until he gets back, but he does intend to name his election campaign team shortly...
He has set the blog to autopilot, so there still will be posts hitting the place at strategic intervals, it's just that there's nobody here to check your comments and what-not, so be nice, OK?, and remember to vote twice a day in the poll above. And you can keep anything left in the fridge.
Hey, what are your top 10 favourite touristy things in Japan???? Joking, Our Man couldn't give a rat's ass.
