The woman doing the massage, Kagoshima 2


I don't think Japan is about Bunraku and green tea anymore. I think the new "visitors" have to find what Japan is now.
The woman in this hotel room. Our hotel room. Giving Yoshi a massage. She is Japan.
Or rather, what is Japan? What does it mean to even look for 'Japan' and does it even matter anymore. We are all people. Rather can't we look at that. Trying to find a nation's traits, it puts our minds in a frame of nationalism doesn't it.
Yasu is laughing at an animation character whose head is a pudding.
The woman doing the massage giggled.
