some photos and a video from japan

we actually got to japan at a wonderful time. in hakodate, the cherry blossoms were just blooming, while in tokyo the temperature was perfect, albeit a little rainy.


omar, angry-looking, but really enjoying the cherry blossoms blooming in hakodate, japan.


some beautifully colored trees in a tea garden on the outskirts of tokyo


can anyone guess what these symbols mean? they sit between the up and down escalators, at 10 meter intervals. i thought the red symbols meant that you shouldn't place items on the middle area (see the guy placing something in the right-hand red symbol?) i was wrong. the red symbols mean "no smoking."

in this video, some crazy goldfish try to leap out of the water and eat me as i get too close to their feeding ground.
