Japan True Stories

This is unfortunately an ongoing series

As I bumble and stumble my way through the Japanese culture, I have been taking extensive notes. A collection of awkward situations, or a trail of destruction? You decide. These are my True Stories. I have not only witnessed them, I am usually the tragic character in the center of the confusion. So click the links, and check back often. I can’t seem to write them down fast enough.

  • If you are not living in Japan,  I ask you one question;  Are you still wearing your shoes?
  • If you are living in Japan,  I ask you one question;  Are you still wearing the bathroom slippers?


• Cow Piss
Don’t knock it, until you try it.


• Stolen Bicycles and getting arrested
He say you under arrest…  He say you Blade Runner…
Tell him you got the wrong guy pal.
