As I was standing on a street corner taking pictures, one of Japan’s weird politics vehicles roamed past like an annoying ice cream truck for adults.

A few minutes after the politics mobile, an ambulance happened to drive by. Who knew that a traffic intersection could be so interesting?

It is easier than you might expect to get hurt or killed by a train in Japan: They zoom by really close and really fast. And there is usually so much noise on the platforms that one might not notice a train’s approach if facing the other direction.

I took three videos from the window of a shinkansen, or bullet train. The first is of downtown Tokyo, to give a little feeling for what it looks like and how endless it feels. Tokyo Tower can be seen clearly at about 0:40.

I was in Shinjuku, and there was some Japanese weirdness going on below me. I’m not really sure what to call it . . . a singing-dancing-concert-festival?

If you thought the last group was peculiar, then these guys might just be a little scary. Thanks go to Scott for these videos, as I would not have been in Shinjuku at the right time if not for him.
