甲府駅

Kofu Station vending machine

Kofu (甲府) is the first place I lived in Japan so it’s super nostalgic to me and always will be. Today’s photo comes from 2013, the last time I was there. Hopefully I get back there again someday.

III Draakon

III Draakon

III Draakon in Tallinn, Estonia is a fun restaurant for time travel. The food is good and relatively inexpensive too. Read the menu outside as it isn’t posted inside. Once inside, you are transported back to a medieval cafeteria. After ordering the serving wench asks for a certain number of “moneys” and of course you pay in Euros.

The bowls and cups frequently are partially broken. In addition, the costumed employees all stay in character. One of them ran out to try and kill a pigeon that landed on the table. She was screaming and seemed to be literally trying to KILL the pigeon. The customer at the table was horrified, but it brought a big smile to my face.

The reviews on the internet are hilarious because many customers seem to not understand that the employees are in character. They fault the place for rude employees, unhelpful service, or that you have to use your hands to eat. If some of the customers weren’t so dumb this place would have a perfect 5/5 rating.

I ♥ 'Mormon'

After grossing more than half a billion dollars in the USA, the Book of Mormon has gone on to be a hit overseas as well. Today’s photo comes from 2016 in London. Last year I saw ads for the musical all over Copenhagen.

There are a lot of really cool festivals in Japan. However, the one that is nearest and dearest to my heart is the Shingen-Ko Matsuri (信玄公祭り), which takes place in Kofu every spring. Perhaps it’s because Kofu is the first place I lived in Japan. In any event, I was there for the 17th and 29th renditions of the festival. I was many months too late to catch the 42nd version, advertised in today’s photo. The 48th edition will happen next year.

Isn't it ironic? Don't you think?
