Spring is pretty much here. On a cycle round Yoyogi Park yesterday I saw a 70-year-old man practicing hip-hop dance moves while wearing an oversized 2Pac tshirt; a Japanese guy in a kilt playing the bagpipes; countless dogs in uniform and the usual array of drummers, guitarists, skaters and hacky sack pros. It’s as if the sun has everyone reaching for their Doraemon outfits, running to the konbini to buy beer then hitting the park.
Surreal moment of the weekend though has to go to this guy and his cat chilling outside Mos Burger in Shimokitazawa. I asked him where his cat learned to read to which he replied:
“He can’t. He just looks at the pictures.”
