Here is a better picture of my messy living room.

This is a picture of the McDonald's menu.

The Horai Bridge is the longest wooden pedestrian foot bridge in the world. It crosses the Oi River, or Oigawa.

Here is the Horai bridge. They charge 100 and something yen to cross it, but I didn't really want to because it is very long, and leads to a forest. My theory on forests is that I'm going to be attacked by mosquitos. Ka like me for some reason. The charge to cross this bridge it is based on the honor system, a wooden box asking you to drop in some yen welcomes you to the long walk over a close to empty riverbed. See what I mean?

This is Shimada High School. Most people just shorten the name to Shimako. I heard a commotion outside my team teaching classroom, and went over to the window to see some action. A group of about eight boys were screaming like if one of them were getting the shit beat outta them, I was confused, and they saw me peering from the window. They all pointed up, and this is what I saw. If that's not the cutest, most innocent display of Japan's high-school aged youth, I don't know what is!

So these vending machines are not only in Tokyo. I found the afterhour party about 10 minutes from my house. Hell Ya!
