Flag of Japan  , Kinki,
Monday, October 11, 2010

Had a wonderful day today visiting Meotoiwa wedded rocks and Jinju Naiku shinto shrine but for the first time I started to get pissed off with the Japanese. Their extreme politeness, their ritualised humility and their strict observance & obedience of civic rules has been grinding for a few days but today it went too far.
Perhaps I was just tired and hungry, grumpy and, well, English but on the bus to the temple we had been stuck in a traffic jam that was stretching a ten minute journey to over half an hour. On the final stretch, with the end on sight, the road broadened into a 2-lane highway; the inside reserved for taxis and buses. Whilst the cars were obediently queuing single file bumper to bumper along the length of the outer lane, the inside opened invitingly empty for a straight half a kilometer stretch to our destination. The only problem was that one of the cars - a wide, shiny black saloon with tinted windows - was not quite aligned with the car in front, his rear bumper overhanging our lane fractionally. We sat there patiently with an empty road in front of us. We sat patiently, our passage obstructed by a sliver of bumper and the bus driver refused to honk his horn. Not even a brief, polite parping to suggest to this car to shuffle over and let us pass. We sat there patiently and...Oh, for fuck's sake, HONK YOUR HORN!!
