For the sake of continuity, I felt compelled to include this picture from Shinjuku Gyoen National Park. It was a nice day even if it was a bit cold for our first visit to a big city.
Parks like these seem to be plentiful in the Land of the Rising Sun. Of course you have to pay to get in (this one was only $2 USD). But as you can see, it’s worth the price of admission.
With the general over population of the Japan as a country, combined with tourism being the main money-maker at most city centers (Shinjuku, included). I’m sure the head honchos make a killing.
Conversely, having to pay for admittance also keeps the homeless out.
I’m not making some big statement about helping the poor. I’m just pointing out the contrast of entering a public park in Japan while it’s own less fortunate citizens have taken residence outside of the park gates.
It certainly made me pause and appreciate all that I have been given.
It’s no big secret: there are a lot of people who call Japan “home”. Sunshine for most of the year, exotique experiences, the opportunity to find out why Jiro, really, dreams of sushi…
Who wouldn’t want call this place home?
