Intrude: The Fifth Element

Ginza by night. This is where the former panda likes to drink Hoppy! It's a malt product that you add to shochu to make a tasty, healthier beer substitute, with vitamin B!
It goes well with Okonomiyaki, which we've gotten reasonably good at cooking!
In Japan, we've learnt to expect the unexpected.
Like the lesser-known, terrifying fifth element: Intrude!
I hear you, girlfriend.
You can hang your wishes at the temple. A surprising number of them featured wild boars.
In our hotel, the gym told Barry what he was allowed to eat for dinner.
Mission accomplished!

Young Drivers and Parasites

We went to the Megaweb Toyota City Showcase to see the future.
We learnt why the Japanese are such good drivers - they learn really really young!
We only saw minor fender-benders, and all the children survived.
We also went to the Parasitological Museum.
I'm not going to lie, it was a bit freaky.
I hate it when this happens!
And afterwards, we totally worried that we were suffering the same fate as this fish.
We started seeing parasites everywhere!
I worried about these Bendy Ladies too.
There was an unrelated Mosquito Festival, somehow. Let's itch together?
