Goodbye, Blue (Japanese) Monday

Goodbye, Blue Monday!
Goodbye, Blue Monday!

Thanks to The Daley Gator for the B.S. pingback!

So, after a little over six years, I find myself back in Japan.  I doubt (seriously) I could ever live in Japan long-term; I’m just too much of a red-state American for that.  But there’s a lot about Japan that I really enjoy – the food, the heavy reliance on good manners and courtesy that allows 100 million people to live in a country the size of California, and not least, the lovely Japanese females.

But as much as I want to get back into the swing of things blogging-wise, I’m still recovering from jet-lag and am also still dealing with the startup of a (short-term but intense) consulting gig.  So instead, have first some photos from  the grounds of the Imperial Palace in Tokyo:

And a few photos of the town I’m staying in the next few weeks, Utsunomiya:

Regular news should resume tomorrow!
