From the Land of the Rising Sun #1: Shibamata

The two dudes are my schoolmate and Japanese lecturer

Shibamata was the scene for one of Japan’s famous dramas, “Otoko wa tsurai yo” starring Tora-san. His statue is just next to the train station entrance (Shibamata eki). And I just realised that I don’t have a photo of the statue….There is actually a museum that has stuff on that drama. If you walk past the museum you’ll reach the Edo river; crossing it takes you to Chiba. The boat taking people to and fro has been operational for quite some time; its known as Yagiri no Watashi. I remember sitting by the river bank on our second last day: “…Our last free day in Japan. Im at the river, after I horrendously miscalculated my spending and wasted like 250 yen. But the shopping for guys back home is done. I’m going to miss this tranquil, organised, happy, kind and entertaining country; Nihon…”

Then I just sat, taking in the view, the moment… I must definitely go back there. Once is not enough.
