Japan Travel Guide: 21,887 reviews and 63,276 photos

Arrived here in Japan February 23, 2010 - and I wanted to see if I could ask ordinary Japanese citizens to jump - and they did! Look at this girl in her kimono and wooden clogs jumping!!!

They are such wonderful people and we are truly enjoying our time here (written Feb 25, 2010 10 PM before going to sleep in this awsome hotel - Hotel Metropolitan Tokyo --- so near the JR train station/subway where they have amazing dessert food choices at the lower level...I think I gained 5 pounds already, hehehe - harder to jump, lol

    Konnichiwa - tonde kudasai (please jump), LOL. Quite a feat to get Japanese strangers to jump for your camera. I remember washing money (yen) for prosperity in one of the Kamakura temples.

    Wow, Norman! You were just in my grandfather's homeland! Maybe, next time, you pay for my airfare and my sister and we will tour you around in Kyoto? Free interpreter! LOL!

    Wow Norman, What a great time you had! You can jump sooo high, and so can some of those Japanese, a bit hard in a Kimono, but must give her 5* for doing it!
