Thanks to an on-line photo service called Shutterfly ( I made up some calendars for myself, a friend of mine here in Japan, and my mother back in California.

For my mother, I used pictures of Japan (look for them on a later date), but for myself and my friend, I made up calendars using photos from Berkeley and San Francisco I took during a November trip back to the US. It seemed appropriate as a reminder, since my friend and I both had lived there (separately, I hasten to add).

Shutterfly lets you display the pictures on their website in their original format, with the border and captions added to them, and if want to see them that way, drop me a line and I'll send you the URL.

The pictures today I took during my commute on Saturday (yes, the office was open), as I crossed the bridge over the Tama River at Koremasa to catch a train on the other side to the office. Quick snaps, since I didn't have time to really focus.

Arrayed along the flight line, right up against the barriers to the runway, were a long line of planespotters--guys armed with enormous cameras, ready to snap shots of aircraft doing flybys.

Okay, it was back in August, but it seems a good counterpoint to the anti-war parade photos just below.

They call it the Yokota Friendship Festival, and it's the US Air Force's annual PR/community relations exercise. This base is, as far as I know, the only major USAF facility in the Tokyo area (the US military as a whole is mostly concentrated on the island of Okinawa way down south, though there are some bases on mainland Japan).

Anti-War March

View all 20 photos...
On Saturday, I was down in the Kamiyacho neighborhood of central Tokyo with a friend when we encountered an anti-war parade. Something neither of us has seen for awhile (not since we left Berkeley, at least). This was on the other side of the hill from the US Embassy, so I have to wonder if they were headed that way.

Oddly enough, I didn't see anything about it in the next day's Daily Yomiuri, though there was a story about an anti-war parade in another country entirely.
