Heh, see ya in a week or so!
OK, so I was searching through my pictures and realized I hadn't posted a bunch that were on my phone. So, here are some pictures of Tokyo!
These are photos of the main train station in downtown Tokyo. I can't remember the name, but it was pretty cool.
When we were coming up to the Imperial palace, we crossed over a bridge with these HUGE Coi fish that were feeding, and the swan was fighting them to eat the food as well. The Coi fish were honestly well over 2.5 feet long. Insane!
Approaching the Imperial Palace
These trees were all around the Imperial Palace. They are all perfectly pruned, and look absolutely beautiful. I snapped a picture of them hoping to identify them, but have yet to as of now.
Cool photo looking from a bridge at the crowds of people
This man had the right idea... Hot American women kept storming him and getting free hugs. What better way to meet people in a foreign country?
This was the Meiji Shrine. It is absolutely beautiful, and we were visiting on a particularly busy day!
Several weddings were being performed. I tried to snap photos of the wedding parties as they paraded by. But, they went by quick enough that I couldn't get photos of them all!
One of the couples
This was a rack of sacred wine, that was being stored on the premises to be blessed. The claim is that just storing the wine on the property of the shrine will make it blessed. Then, it is sold for some astronomical price
This was a rack of sacred Saki, which was used in ceremonies at the shrine.
This was a billboard that was inside of the subway station. I thought it was really awesome to see a reference to Back to the Future, so I had to get a pic.
More pics to follow as I get time!
Here are some more photos of the night I sang karaoke in Sasebo, Japan. My buddy had his camera out that night and just e-mailed me a bunch of pictures. You will notice that we got much more drunk as the night went on, and it turned out to become a very entertaining night. In the end, I had 3-4 shots of Habu Saki which was really interesting. I hadn't really drank it much before that. It gives a very weird drunkenness, and it honestly doesn't go away. I awoke the next day still horribly buzzed, and it took well into the afternoon of the next day for me to get rid of the feeling. But, it made for one hell of a night!
Photos of the Albequerque bridge. Sasebo has been adopted by Albequerque, NM and they are now sister cities. So, Albequerque donated that bridge.
Cool scenery on our way to the bar
Shinto shrine, that was in a very random place. We thought it looked cool and was worth a photo.
Just got to the bar! The night begins... I started out singing karaoke, and got a score of 97/100 on my first song (Kryptonite by 3 Doors Down).
The free drink that was given because of my great score on the previous song. Habu Saki! I won two more drinks that night before they quit offering me free drinks....
My buddy and I singing karaoke. Things got very interesting as we really hammed up the songs and got everyone involved. As the night went on, more and more people started singing (including a few locals!).
The awesome bar tender
I will also toss up more photos as I figure out what's been posted and what hasn't. I've taken a ton of photos!
I think those trees are Japanese Red Pines, which are a favorite for Bonsai...
Mang, between you globetrotting in the Navy, Fiddy globetrotting to SE Asia and Africa, and wiskas globetrotting in the astral dimension, T3D really has galactic reach.
Hey man, don't dis the outer limits. From here I get to be on the outside looking in. And what a show it is.
The cosmos are laughing their collective asses off!
