a The Transit Lounge: Ginza Girls

Back in the Day: I had a quarter life crisis, headed to Osaka, Japan for the unknown–only to discover that a passport plane ride are not necessarily a ticket to escape.

Ginza Girls

Ginza is one of my Must Sees in Tokyo and on the weekend, Ginza is even better. The main road is closed to traffic so you can wander around and about.

You never know what you will see out and about on the weekend in Ginza - aquariums, ice sculptures, pet monkeys being carried, pet rabbits being walked on leads, the world's tiniest dog...and dolls of course.

So girly and so pretty. That is Ginza. All we need now is a dollhouse!

Japan is a world unto itself. The schooling system, where i worked for quite a number of years is brutal...usually 10 to 12 hr days. So what do the kiddies wanna do when they leave? EXPRESS THEMSELVES of course....
