Jesus Body and other Pictures

Pictures from August and September:

A pottery shop near Koyomizu-dera. I took this while I was walking, so good job me.

Each rickshaw company has its own uniform. These are some of my favorites. Who wears short shorts?
The gate to Kiyomizu-dera. It was really bright out and my contacts were bothering me, so my eyes are barely open. This is a theme from that day.
Tourist trap. But someday I will join the legions of Japanese and foreign tourists who feel like getting pulled around by an informative man in tiny pants.
Japanese curry is an art all of its own. It's less soupy than other regional curries and is made to be eaten with rice. Curry rice (or carreigh raissu) is one of my favorite Japanese foods, and is something I eat a lot after a long day, or when it rains. Or if it's cold. Or if I just feel like it. Or if I go to a new restaurant and see it on the menu, because it's one of the few things that I can read because it's not in kanji.
The ever-classy Rubino Hotel, where the ALT seminar was held in August. Very under-the-sea type of decor.
I think this was supposed to be artistic, but I don't get why they couldn't have just left the seats on and turned them around. How about it, Rubino?

A heavenly-inspired diet.
A corner of my neighborhood
Spider-bite bulldog jaw. It looks like I had teeth pulled.


  1. AHAHAHAHAHAHHAAAAAAA!!! Jesus Body! HAHAHA! That should be available in the States. Sorry about your face.

  2. So sorry about the bite! Love the pictures, though.

  3. Hope the bite swelling went away quickly! Hope you and Hannah are having fun.
