Today I took the metro to the Meiji shrine.  It was a pretty cool place.  I like that it was in the middle of the woods/gardens and still in the busy city of Tokyo.  It was relaxing to walk around there.  The shrine itself was pretty and their religion is foreign to me, strange.  They have infinite gods they worship and are not interested in evangelism.  They also had some class with marital arts and very long bows and arrows. 

After that, I went to a coffee shop and had coffee and read sports illustrated magazine.  My sushi shop was closed for dinner.  I'll have to catch it tomorrow.

Oh, and there were these awesome sake barrels at the park with colorful decarations on them.  All that sake inspired me to put this quote from Tom Cruise's 2003 movie The Last Samurai in my blog because Cruise's character liked to get drunk on sake in the movie:

Algren:
You want me to kill Jappos, I'll kill Jappos.

Colonel Bagley:
I'm not asking you to kill anybody.

Algren:
You want me to kill THE ENEMIES of Jappos, I'll kill THE ENEMIES of
Jappos... Rebs, or Sioux, or Cheyenne... For 500 bucks a month I'll kill
whoever you want. But keep one thing in mind: I'd happily kill you for
free.


Saaaaaakkkkkeeeeee!
