It's not all about food; this one was taken in Shinjuku Park.

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

What a symbolic picture about Japan. Queuing even for taken photos and with such a great equipment!!! An humoristic look on your fellow citizens.

An aspect of life in Japan that is hard to comprehend when you live in a vast, unterpopulated place like we do....

Are cameras cheap or is everyone just rich?

@Twelvebit: Not sure Twelvebit. But it seems normal here to see people of a certain age with this kind of equipment.

Maybe its a culture thing but I don't understand why everyone is queueing to take pictures from the same spot! I'm glad you took this shot =D)
