Japan Tokyo Ikebukuro Typhoon Food Omurice

22 October 2017

Saturation point

The rare 3rd update in a single day eventuated, silly because I have had very little to photograph or talk about.

I am however starting to believe the typhoon warning was real.
Even navigating around the underground and in stores is treacherous, in many places the roof is leaking and people are splashing water around, making the tiles ridiculously slippery. Very poor design, someone should be stationed to apology bow.
On two occasions I did that thing where one leg slides out and the other starts to go but you just make it, flinging your arms out to balance. Nearby spectators were amused.

Now I have to make a decision on what to do tomorrow, the weather forecast still says sun shining by 9am, but I was hoping to go up a trail of sorts. There are warnings of potential landslides. I dont know what to believe, its barely even a stiff breeze despite there being a typhoon warning.

In good news, I can put my clothes which have reached saturation point in the dryer and wear them again tomorrow.
I still refuse to carry an umbrellea. Stubborn I am.
Not much I can do about the lack of interesting pictures.

A brief downgrade from torrential to heavy meant I could take a photo of a street corner whilst standing in a puddle that had a power cord running through it to light up a sign.
Despite that, I still felt more scared of the people reading their phones walking in the rain carrying umbrellas at eye height.

This is the new thing thats everywhere. A pancake of sorts prepared in a cast iron pan, served up to you in the pan. Expect a huge line outside of the first store that copies this idea in Australia soon.

Predictably, my dinner is omurice. It still has not really become popular in Australia, which is annoying because I love it.
Adelaide had one restaurant serving it in the central market and they went broke, Melbourne has a couple of places but they are crap, Japan has one on every corner with 50 flavours.
My choice is the mushrooms of autumn special. Delicious, the rice inside the omelette also has more mushrooms mixed in.

Last boring rain day photo, in Australian we are proud of our wine in cardboard boxes, they are generally large. Japan has shrunk goon bag down to fruit box size. Everything is smaller in Japan.
