Cat Window Shopping

Came across this cat window shopping in Japan:) The cat was part of the window display but had been placed outside the shop on the pavement looking in. Love the way it is standing on a little stool so that it can see properly

The Strange Umbrella Device

Came across this in a hotel in Kyoto. It seemed to be a device for locking up your umbrella. Umbrella theft - mmm...perhaps I should put this under Risks & Dangers:)

    Ok, the first photo on your album is sake barrels. Brand names are on each barrel. 2nd one is called Euma. We buy it to write wish, and leave it in the designated area. 3rd one is signes of who donated what to shrine/temple. Mystery solved? :)
