Okutama station to Mitake hike. This one is an intense 5 hours. If you don't have long legs do the reverse, you can take a cable car up the mountain. But if you do Okutama to Mitake, you can end closer to the Sawanoi sake brewery.

I miss this spot. Pork bowl on the south side of Kichijoji.
I had plans to go to this remote kakigori (shaved ice) spot in Chichibu. Sure enough, the night before it was featured on a prime-time food show as the #1 spot in Saitama. Lines ensued.
New toilets in the subway. Word.

Crazy Evangelion themed bar in Osaka.
Yankinoko. Yankee + kinoko. Basically hill billy country trash gangster-wannabee mushrooms.
There is a "pancake boom" in Japan right now. Expect lines.
I like the literal translation better . . . Cat Time!
My boy was ranked #7, going against the #1.
Brutal fight, but Guy D with the choke out.
This bruise was about 1 hour after the fight. Kick to the ribs.
