Zzzzzzzzzzzz

For those of you who regularly read the blog from the beginning, you know I have a penchant for snapping pics of people sleeping here. This one was taken by Otaku, but I'm posting it anyways :D

"This one I got after a hard night of partying. I can't remember the exact event, but I can recall I was with Russ at God know's what time in the morning and we had decided to ditch the girls for some Yoshinoya. We saw these two laying about and had to have a picture. It's true that Japanese people can sleep anywhere."

I love that there's 2 of them. Lets go for din din together, then some shopping together, then go partying together and THEN lets pass out on the street together! BFF's!!! Just like Paris and Britney!

Another funny pic. Otaku and I went for dinner at good old Saizeriya.


There's me! And some lady passed out at her table. Unlike in Western countries when people are so drunk they pass out/so tired they fall asleep in a public place and are summarily asked to leave - immediately - with help if unable to do so by ones self, in Japan everyone just politely steps around them/lets them lay there happily in their own drool until they wake up on their own. Unless its the last train or the restaurant/bar is actually closing. Even then sometimes if they know the person, they may let them lay there until they finish cleaning up and THEN wake them up to ask them politely to leave. Aaaaah what a country!

lol! I thought it was uncool to be seen drunk in Japan.
But I guess that was the previous generation.
I hear the new Japan drinks more Scotch than the Brits or Scots

Speaking as the designated Scot of this blog...I'm gonna have to agree. Mind you, they drink our whisky, so that makes it better.

The New Japan are all alcoholics. Seriously - they work until 9, and then are obligated to go out with their work buddies and get completely sloshed. This isn't just a Friday night thing either. Its an everyday occurance. Its not just guys either. The women are just as bad. Entertaining for me! Sucks for their livers.
