End of Summer

Today was the first time I've woken up needing a blanket. I am loving the cool breeze, though it makes me feel guilty knowing that it's because a typhoon is rolling through Japan, threatening to displace millions of people in Nagoya. Sigh. Mother nature, why won't you just leave Japan alone!

On a lighter note, here are some pictures from the end of summer.

Chillin' by the pool. 

Mori Art Museum Sky Aquarium. I have no idea what this thing is but they were for sale in the gift shop. And alive. 

Vietnamese dancers performing at the Harajuku Yosakoi Festival. 

My favorite: kakigori

A little traditional...a little country. 

Yakisoba heaven. 

Tsukune (chicken meatballs) at Urawa's famous izakaya Riki

Deep fried fish cakes and cheese. I know that sounds awful but they are awesome.
