Shame some areas are vacant, the bin men were on strike so the litter was piling up.

everyone doing their best....

hot and humid afternoon in yamagata, it was around 38 degrees in the sun, shops blasting air con, i was cycling past this senior high school looking at the hand painted sign saying ganbaro tohoku, meaning, go tohoku!  do your best!  all the windows were open, i can only imagine the heat inside the school. but it this is what we can do, forgo some of our aircon comfort for the sake of saving electricity.  this touched me, every one, well most people are doing what little they can in these tough days...

cooling off...

Yamagata style, nothing better than a quick shower under a waterfall to wake you up. . . refresh and revitalise your spirits..
