こんなところにも、不安にさせる看板は必要ですか。
My favorite line, on this sign outside the bathroom, is “Avoid showing skin.” I know there were incidents of dengue fever from mosquitos in Yoyogi park in late summer. But it’s been too cold for mosquitos since October, and how exactly will you use the restroom “without showing skin”?!

Shuro palm tree flowering in parking lot

駐車場にあるこのシュロという椰子は葉ぱが少ししかのこっていないが、たくさん花が咲いている。東京のどこにでも広がりやすい。

This parking lot palm tree has so few leaves yet so many flowers. No wonder the shuro palm tree spreads so easily in Tokyo.
