Japan Tokyo Ginza Rain Food Omurice

13 November 2017

Surprise downpour whilst tired

Ginza in the rain

I had planned to catch the train past Ginza, walk all the way back through Ginza, see lots of lights, gawk at eastern Europeans, then there was a sudden downpour.
This was not forecast.

I was also surprised at how tired I felt this evening, yes I have done 45k steps again, which is a lot, but I feel more tired than I expected. Must be old now, might have to start going on cruises instead.

All this added up to not many photos, but I do have 2 stories.

Coming up out of the station, the stairs were wet, and one guy fell over, upwards thankfully, whilst reading his phone. He kept reading as he got up with his other hand, never looked away from his phone, fell over again, repeated this, took 3 steps up, fell over again. He never once looked up from his phone in all of this. It was quite amazing.
All this happened in front of the sign warning people not to walk and text.

Then when I got back on a train, a girl was pushing a 4 wheel suitcase whilst running to make the train, which comes every 3 minutes. She stopped just outside the door, left her case on the platform and got on to look at the map inside the train. Of course the doors shut. Her case was now on the platform and she was on the train.
She then spoke to everyone using the fastest Japanese speaking I have ever heard, sounded like one of those guys calling a cattle auction, only in squeaky mouse Japanese girl voice.
The good news for her is, theres probably no better place in the world to leave your suitcase unattended, I predict she will get it back.

I think I will go fast asleep now.

I had to retreat underground to find dinner. I found this place and had spaghetti omurice, there are spaghetti noodles inside the egg, so its not omurice at all.
It was ok, but a small serve. I then noticed that despite being quite a large place, I was the only male. They had sat me way in the back corner on my own.
Also the place was called ducky duck. I feel as though I chose poorly.
