Picture Dump

Tuesday, despite weather delays and train derailments that put me 5 hours behind, I went to Yokouska to use the base ATM machine and collect my last pre-vacation paycheck ...

...which saved my arse....

I also purchaced some new shoes as my steel toes were cutting into my feet...

I attempted to eat dinner at Yokuska Curry, but found out that the famous curry place (which advertises via a Duck In a Sailor Suit...at Yokuska Station...keeps bankers hours.

Also, they turn on the Mikasa`s running lights at night....

Yesterday, when the rain cleared, I went to Akihabara to exchange my dollars for yen. Along the way I noted a few things....

Everything old is new....I saw a Pervert Frog reference in an on train ad....

I think Gamers has moved closer to the station, or perhaps I was turned around. The interior certainly seemed different.

However, there are still enough Roman Albums in there to flatten Carthage.

A few months ago, in one of the articles regards the Akihabara stabbing, some wag blamed it in part on the utter lack of sitdown restraunts in Akihabara, which is typical of the depersonalized Otaku culture....I`ll post some pics when I can link the article and have time, but damn, they hadnt moved them...there were still sit-down curry houses french restraunts, pizza parlors and...this....

....Cleverly hidden beneath this maid cafe is the Heroes Steak House...one of the best steaks I have ever had.

Today I wandered down the stream behind the apt....I was...not alone...

The bike paths on either side follow it untill disrupted by RR tracks...

not even Japan is going to provide a RR crossing for a bike path....

...oh...

Eventually the bike paths sort of merge and morph into this park about 2 miles down.A place for a kid to have all sorts of fun......

 

...with the usual caveats....

And the suddenly it ended at a storm drain....

And I have used up my hour of computer time.....

Update: edited for spelling/clarity and added links as post was originally made in great haste.
