Praying for health.
And quite possibly, hair.

I bet he counts his little hair hat as hair. 😉

My first thought – what an atrocious rug!

Maybe it’s the pressure of there not being that many bald people, but I see a surprising amount of wigs on display. Some absolute shockers too. In fact just the other day I saw a fella in the supermarket, and even his wig had started to go bald…

The wig going bald reminds me of my father in law, Japanese, who felt the peer pressure to wear a wig to work but never really took care of it. As long as you go through the motion his office, a bank, thought it was okay. Weird…

Poor fella, being pressured into wearing a wig. I agree, very weird indeed…

Like the 1st picture a lot. He really seems to be deep in thought.

Thanks. Yes, he did seem to be. Not a sign that he’s sick I hope.

Which god is this? Sign me up! My Bobby Charlton is becoming more pronounced by the day.

I believe it’s the god of wishful thinking. A tricky fella to get hold of by all accounts.

This is the Asakusa Buddhist temple in Tokyo, right? It’s a great location for some touching shots of people “massaging” the incense smoke into the parts of their body they want help with.

Yeah, that’s right. Same here, I love standing there watching people, and occasionally taking a photo. It’s a fascinating spot.

Hi I’m Japanese. And sorry,my English is poor.
If you like Japanese, please don’t take photos of prayers. It’s rude.
