Oh…look at the time!!!

Its five minutes past five (closing time), and Im still inside the Tokyo National museum. Who would belive…such inconsiderate behavior was tolerated!

I certainly dont think this “flawless entity of furniture” was an intende part of the exibition, but it definitely states the contemporary and yet historical intent to keep things in order!

On the other hand. The road to HELL is paved with such good intentions (according to Madonna). And incidents do happen, where on wonders “what the h**** were they thinking?” Such as this dark alley, containing….an image of the post-perfectionistic Japan! So disturbing….

Can not look…a collection of trash, my eyes hurt!!!

Bento box lunch á la Sushi

For lunch or breakfast, bento is a remarkably fresh & organised cuisine ready to go (sloppy junk-burgers with dripping dressing soaked in trans-fat oil, that’s a NO NO!!!!)

The bento box concept originated…(i don’t know). But you can buy it practicaly everywhere. And it is such a nutritious strike of geniosity, no wonder the japanese keep working all daylong…

On the surface, the Japanese seem exceptionally well adjusted, smart and content. The concept of Wa, states the importance of working and living together in peace and harmony, avoiding confrontation is essential.

And it looks good…on the surface!

Proverb of the day “Deru kui wa utareru” Its better to conform than to stand out. (Or maybe not?)
