Worldly Observations

This gentleman was leading a group of tourists at Universal Studios, who I had to judge by their shoes and cameras, were from Japan. During our recent visit there, I was struck by the nation’s commitment to DSLR cameras and unique footwear. I’ve never seen as many different styles of shoe as I did on the feet of Japanese train passengers. 

This guy today also had clappy hands 👏 to direct his group, but that was just a bonus.


My own feet were killing me despite my sensible but decidedly American running shoes. So, while the rest of the family was in the souvenir shop, I sat on a curb and marveled at footwear:


I also noticed in Japan that women in particular like to dress like twins. I can’t confirm that these ladies are Japanese, but world travel has opened me up to the possibility that they very well may be.

  1. These pictures had me laughing. I was actually on the train when I read this and I instantly started looking at shoes. You forgot to mention all the high heels in Japan! The girls with the minions hat at an amusement park – definitely Japanese. The person wearing flip flops – definitely American.

  2. Oh Oh! My computer says its 7:43 PM on June 21; my post above says it was made tomorrow at 2:43 AM! You’ve done it!
