Playing the games igo and shogi (so I've been told by a reliable source... I honestly have no idea!).

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!

i really love this photo - well done. It seems so crowded and the face and interactions are so interesting. Good sense of inside outside with the bike resting against the window.

Japanalia from Yokohama, Japan

Again.....very well seen and captured! Interesting, a lesson of culture for those who have little or no knowledge of life in Japan! Look at all those faces! Their life is there now, on the game boards! (Better than going on beer binges!)

@Japanalia: I guess so Gabriela! Lots of interesting characters there.
