Train platform to enter car #6

Baseball motif in tile floor of Japanese metro station

I took today’s photo after watching a Swallows game in Tokyo at Meiji Jingu Stadium (明治神宮野球場). I think I was in the Gaienmae Station. Is anyone familiar with that station? Am I correct in that guess?

Ramen Momo

Ramen Momo

Ramen in Iceland? The thought (and the high reviews on TripAdvisor) caused my mouth to water. However, I did not enjoy my bowl, even though I was very hungry. The few poor reviews seem to be on the tonkotsu side (which is also what I ordered) so maybe go for the miso variety if you eat here.

学生ローン (高田馬場)

Student debt in the USA has become a hot topic in recent years with the average student debt rising to about $30,000 from a few hundred dollars a few decades ago.

Today’s photo shows a building between the Takadanobaba Station and Waseda University in Tokyo, Japan. While many buildings in Japan have advertisements for the businesses inside, this one is a bit unusual in that it has 10 ads for the same business. The business is student loans. The current rate, according to the company’s website, is over 15%!

Next week we are off to Oahu. While you can find Marugame Udon shops all over Japan, you have to go to Hawaii to eat such noodles in the USA. Can’t wait!
