RABBIT PHOTO SHOOT! / Yokohama, Japan

And the award for the cutest thing to ever happen in the history of the world goes to…


So yeah, the other day I was walking around Chinatown in Yokohama. I really like it down there, it’s way more spacious than Tokyo and when the sun’s out it’s super chill down by the sea. On a side note, as a kindergarten teacher I find the best shoes to teach in are those slip-on kung-fu style jobs – so I bought a few pairs of them in a quaint little shop and then headed off to find some dumplings. I got a big box of xiaolongbao to take away and sat down by a Chinese temple.

Just as I was finishing my food a woman came along with a wicker-basket pram. She stopped outside the temple, looked at me, then bent down, opened up her pram and produced a couple of rabbits. But not just any rabbits: these guys were wearing Ming Dynasty silk coats and matching hats. She lifted them out and put them on the steps and proceeded to take pictures of them. As did the small crowd that gathered. The rabbits were so healthy looking: pure pedigree and trained to sit there and not move about much.

I couldn’t stop smiling. It was one of the cutest, most random, things I’d ever seen.
