Jalan Jalan (46) [SPECIAL BAKA]: A trip to the Immigrations turns into a wandering around Cosmo Square...

Some friendly sorts met during my travels...

Some colorful ninjas hanging out at the toll road rest stop in Kusatsu, Shiga... Nana-chan ningyo at the Meitetsu Bus Center in Nagoya... Some tanuki ninjas at the toll road rest stop in Tsuchiyama, Shiga... P.S. If you haven't been to a toll road rest stop in Japan, you are missing out (as they are nothing like the smelly, dirty, dangerous rest stops you might find on American highways)...
