Namba by Tim-Wilko Namba by Tim-Wilko
なんば、大阪、日本
Namba, Osaka, Japan

Taken during the rainy season.

I had 45 minutes to wait for my girlfriend to have an eyelash perm (something I'd never heard of before I came to Japan!) so I thought I'd try taking some photos.

Holding an umbrella and a camera is not so easy (no tripod).

Those fish are crazy huh?

Yeah, it says づぼらや (dzuboraya). It's a chain of fugu restaurants (the fish with the poisonous livers). You can see another one here:

No problem!

Not yet. I'd like to try it sometime but it's a little expensive. Restaurants like this are pretty safe. Most of the deaths from eating fugu are fishermen who catch and cook it themselves.

I think this is nice photo in the rain..
by the way, what is eyelash perm ?

Thanks!

Good question, I think it is like permanent eyelash curling (well, it lasts for about 3 months anyway). Personally I don't care about eyelashes but some Japanese girls seem to care a lot.
