Roppongi Hills

Condos Posted by Picasa

Well, after taking a long break (about four months!) I am going to start posting again. I got a little bit burned out there after posting all most everyday when I first started on this blog. This time I am going to try and post about once a week.

The photo above was taken from the Mori Building in the Roppongi Hills section of Tokyo.

This weekend the cherry blossoms are in full bloom. People are enjoying Hanami, which in English would be “cherry blossom viewing.” Actually it’s just an excuse for some people to get really drunk!

A New Police Box

Ginza Posted by Hello

Here is an example of a more modern police box. Yes, the one with the two frogs on top! There are many different styles of police boxes in Japan. This one is located in the famous Ginza area; not all look this nice.

In Japanese, these police boxes are called Koban (kouban.) Here is an interesting article that mentions the Koban system.

An Old Police Box

Tsukishima Posted by Hello

This old police box is located in Tsukishima Island, which is part of Chuo-Ku (ward of Tokyo.)

Most likely this old police box is a historical landmark, and not in actual use. Nobody ever seems to be inside of it. However, on the desk the white sign reads “somebody is watching you!”
