Kurutta Nihon/狂った日本

Rasmus and I went to Japan last summer and spent five weeks travelling around the country. It's a crazy country with crazy people, crazy food (what's with the attraction to gel?), crazy architecture, crazy rules, norms, and rituals.

In my dictionary, crazy is both very attractive and just a bit repellent at the same time. Which makes it somewhere, you should definitely go.

What's your craziest destination yet? Pleeease tell me, I probably want to go there!

oh yes! That is a religious suffering- we found it in a small temple village in the mountains near Osaka, and it looked quite common!

Usually with variations of the theme 'roots' in different settings. I especially love the canned pineapples - the thing is that vegetables and fruit of all kinds are dead expensive in Japan, so it's a very exclusive thing to get :)
