Tokyo Damage Report

Cemetary Crows

 

Yanaka Cemetary, near Nishi-Nippori: it’s not only a  home to dead Shoguns and spooky cats. (and more spooky cats!)

They also got  HELLA MORBID CROWS ALL GETTING EDGAR ALLAN POE ON YOUR ASS!

These are old photos – taken April, 2004 – which I’m (ahem) exhuming for this occasion.

all like if you mixed Waldo and Edgar Allen in a blender and threw in a dash of Gargoyle for good measure!

 

 

 

 

 

BONUS: check out this grave:

They left not one but three bottles of "one-cup" (50 proof homeless-hooch) for the ghost!

 

. . . and the alcohol has FUCKIN’ SAKURA PETALS FLOATING IN IT!

 

SPIRITUAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    That hooch is a super fine touch. Are there Ravens in Japan?

    There are giant f’in ravens in Japan. They are Major problem in Tokyo (at least a few years ago it was, can’t imagine it changing)

    Never did see a a crow only these godawful sized avians that would have give Mr. Poe some second thoughts. They are evil and cunning and that beak’d take a finger off.

    Apartments have steel mesh cages for the garbage to prevent the Ravens from getting at it.

    I’ve watched them drop all kinds of shit from the telephone poles trying to get it to break so they can extract whatever from inside. Walnuts? check. Oysters? check. Sealed bento box? Check.
