Japan Kyoto Food Ramen

27 October 2016

Repeat visits

The Kyoto Yodobashi is very large

Sorry to my loyal viewer, but there are not many photos this evening.
Main reason for this is, I went back to the same place as last night cause I like it so much.
On the way there, I was attacked by a small dog! I did nothing to this dog, but he did not like me at all. My shoe has been chewed. I believe at one point the dog had all 4 paws off the ground and was supporting his entire body weight by his jaw clamped to my foot whilst I tried to shake him off. The rubber toe thing on my shoes is very handy.
Crazy dogs owner did not seem apologetic enough, she did not even offer an apology bow. I considered bighting the dog back. Man bites dog.

Later on, inside a Loft store, which is a bit like Tokyu Hands but more fashion focused, I witnessed a child attempt to eat fake candy stationery. He did not swallow it, but even after spitting out one piece, he decided to try a second piece of moulded colorful plastic. If you are unable to learn from your mistakes then you are a form of life lower than monkey. Be gone with you lesser monkey child.

My journey home involved avoiding the surface as much as possible, I decided to explore the subway tunnels under the road. To see how far they go, I walked as far as I could away from the city to get to the end, before walking back towards the city. About 2.8km I think.
These tunnels have no shops, they are just a very convenient under used fast way to avoid the crush of tourists at the surface. The highlight for me was when a serious looking jogger went past. He jogs for kilometres indoors without having to stop for traffic lights or trip over other humans. Smart.

Peak tourist back alley restaurant street. They have alleys running off the alleys here. Tour groups all stop to take photos from the same spot, for 5 minutes at a time, whilst a traffic jam forms behind them.
Your mobile phone cameras are useless to take such photos, the flash will not help, please move on.

I had an excellent dinner which claimed to be authentic original championship winning ancient meiji restoration era samurai approved Kyoto style ramen.
It had 9 chefs hats on the menu to recommend it. I do not know what the green stuff is, but its all that differentiates it from all the other ramen. The noodles were the ones I prefer though, the ones that are whiter and stronger than the yellower ones.

Nearer my hotel, I was going down dark back streets, really dark. I came around a corner and a motion sensor light turned on and lit these guys up directly in front of me. I leapt about 3 feet in the air.

The Kyoto branch of the Yodabashi camera, fashion, alcohol and umbrella shop is impressive in size. Inside there was a russian family, with a very angry, very tall father. I could not work out what he was so angry about.
At one stage he pressed the button for the lift and when the doors did not open immediately he decided to bash on the doors and yell at them until they opened.

I wanted to record the Russians unexplainable (inexplicable?) antics with this retro stereo pinhole camera, but no one alive knows how to use such a thing.
Yodabashi has about 20 pinhole cameras to choose from, including some in wooden boxes and cake tins. When did this become a thing?
