I guess winter’s almost ready to end here in Japan. About time. Last week it was pretty warm for a few days, then the weekend had mad crazy wind. It was cold again, then today we had some of the heaviest rainstorms I’ve seen in a while – and they lasted only a few hours. And I think the super winds are back now. The rest of the week is supposed to have highs in the 50’s.
I feel like I started this entry with a bunch of ideas, but they’re all gone now. Uhh… Well I guess that’s all for now.
Oh but one thing! This year’s かなまら祭り(Iron Penis Festival) is on April 6th. Anyone going? I thought for some reason it was in late March, but I checked and it’s officially on the first Sunday of April every year. Also checked this site. Steve Cochrane will be in Japan that week, and Macie is coming as well, so those two will probably enjoy seeing the weirdest freaking event on the planet. Need I remind you of last year? I’ll have to think of some other weird stuff to show those two while they’re here. They’ll probably be here right as the sakura bloom, which is perfect. And of course Namja Town is on the menu.
Now that I think about it, I don’t know if I really want to go back to the Kanamara Festival, since the old Confederate guy with the dog might attack me or something.
