I went to an interesting live bar the other day. Originally this bar was an old apartment. A tatami mat is spread in the stage. It is very comfortable for musican and spectators. Because I can lie at full length, I can feel the splendid atmosphere of an old Japanese house.

This is a watering place that you will find if you visit shrine in Japan. The water is not for drink. Your hands must be clean before going to sanctuary of shrine. Cleanse first your hands and your mind.

These are passenger boat for cruise around Tokyo gulf with lunch or dinner. You can have hot TENPURA that is made on the ship. About 10,000 yen per one are necessary to go on board.

I seem to have been used as transportation to a red light district in the Edo era. They do business as a pleasure boat now.
