Arriving at Narita Airport near Tokyo a few weeks ago .

I will be posting several shots of several high-tech throne controllers from various hotels.

Japanese development of cool toilets continues to amaze — and occasionally baffle.

When I first got to Japan in the mid-80s, many toilets were still squat type, which took some getting used to .

The Tohoku Shinkansen (bullet train), pulling in to Tokyo Station. This was my ride up to Yumi’s parents’ place in Aomori Prefecture in northern Japan.

You can see a restored dome from Tokyo Station in the background. They’ve done a magnificent job over the last decade or two restoring the station to nearer its original exterior appearance.
