Don’t worry no Japanese school children were hurt (or to be more precise forced to hurt each other – you probably need to be familiar with the film to understand this) in the manufacturing of this week’s blog it just happens to be the title of one of my favourite Japanese films - (The inspiration for the recent book and film -the Hunger Games) and so ever since our trip to Japan I have been dying to use it as a blog title….
|Don't look Mrs B -|
Please note - for those of you of a nervous

|I think the umbrella is used to hide behind |
as you up chuck the green tea....
Japan is a very polite society
|I sometimes wonder does religion use|

|Mrs B rocking the Japanese railways|
The truth behind how little trains are made in Japan....
|Mount Fuji showing just a glimpse of flesh (or whatever the |

with Minnie mouse.
|Possibly the best sign in the world,|
honest and informative.....
|Like a bridge over troubles waters....|
Only the waters weren't that troubled... hey at
least it was a bridge. Simon and Garfunkel
never had this type of problem....
|Noodles, which were followed by Okonomiyaki|
a Japanese pancake. It probably would have been more
balanced if I had not selected a Hiroshima Okonomiyaki
which turned out to be the noodle version of the
|Bamboo Forest Kyoto|
|Path to enlightenment....|
|More Autumnal leaves|
|Foxy prayers at Fushimiinari-taisya shrine...|
|It's not the giant lizards that are a problem in Japan|
its the giant spiders that will kill you....
