I saw this today (how to que in Thailand), and if I can find it, I'll post a pic of how some Japanese folks "stand" in line. Nope... no pic... it's a video. See the next post.

I haven't seen that in Japan, but then I didn't attend soccer games. But it does not surprise me in the least. If you leave your purse or wallet on the train or lose it, there is a 95% chance that you will be called by the police in a day or so to come to the local police station to retrieve it .....and all of your money will be in it. And Japan is very much a cash society, so we could be talking hundreds of dollars--- or more, if you were on your way to pay your rent.

To be honest, I miss something about living in Japan every single day. I miss that place like crazy. But when I lived there, I missed something about living in the USA every single day....like crazy. I wish there were transporter thingys like on Star Trek and I would just teleport myself to Japan once a month or so.

I think I've told you this before Neko, but when I was in Denmark you could leave your purse, phone, wallet or even cash on the bar and walk around talking to friends and no one would ever touch it.

Very similar where I lived in Kansas and here at home in California, admittedly depending on what bar you go to. I don't go out often at all, but when I do, I go to one of the places where you can leave your purse, wallet, etc. on the bar and no one will touch anything. And it's not a fancy place at all... sort of a hole in the wall, in fact. But it is still a small town, and folks still look out for one another and respect people's personal property. Same as where I lived in Kansas.

I do not, however, leave my cash laying openly on the bar here then go walking around talking to people, and don't plan to test the theory. Haha.

I wish I could get teleported back to Denmark on a fairly frequent basis. Such a great place.

I have mixed feelings on the Japanese and Japan its self. If they had prevailed in the war our lives would be vastly different. Some things they do are quaint and interesting, other things were madding. I was just a visitor, a guest, so very little of what they did affected me. This gave me a warped perspective on what I saw and how I interacted with them.
Japan also has a brutal and dark side.

Have you ever seen this place during your time in Japan?

No room for switchbacks? It looks very costly and intimidating to drivers.

Drifters would have a field day... yeee---haw!

That's pretty neat, GR! Reminds me of the Tehachapi Loop:

I'll bet they put some massive locomotives on trains that navigate that loop.


That Japanese spiraled road reminds me of the top of the Smoky Mountains overlook at Clingman's Dome.
