Photographer's Note

Arrived home. Switzerland is in middle of spring, sunny and beautiful. I have not really problem with time differences this time. I ignored the time differences and began to live on Swiss time. It means I go to bed at 1 and eat lunch at 12. I was at my sis’s home, she is busy as always, the dog piss around anywhere in house if she was not treated like Jennifer Lopes as always and kids are just lifeless as always. Strange kids she got. Japanese young people seem like to refuse to get adults. What is better to be an adult person in Japan? More responsibilities and scary thoughts like having own family. Beside, these kids saw their own parents are neither real grown up people; Japan is a nation of wish to be always under 18 country in both mentally and physically. That is why everybody ( if I say everybody it is everybody) carries one or another anime figures on the backpack and every Keitai (Mobile handset) in Japan carries at least one Keitai-Sutorappu ( Mobile Straps) with Hello Kitty or whatever you like. We call this Kawaii (pretty) and Japan is one big Kawaii nation. We rather stop using our red-sun on white bed sheets flag and use Hello Kitty on pink flag instead. Here functions the psychology scheme that Kawaii = Pretty = Loved I guess. But for me it is Kawaii = Silly = Scary sheme. Kawaii nation is a kind of pink cellophane wrapped society. One cannot see the kick to death by youngster homeless people, by mother ignored starved to dead kids, too expensive education system parents has to go through, ultra right wing Abe cabinet with scary stupid health ministers who even said “Women are baby making machine (so shut up!)”. I can count up endlessly. Every society has her own age and should behave like so. But Japan refuses to become adult. This is maybe the point some aliens find Japan so fascinating. Japan is the nation like Shinkansen super express train that bound to the hell as final destination. Fast, secure and expensive, Japanese passengers look outside through pink colored window and smiling like Anime heroes and heroines. Okay we may end up in the hellfire, but we at least go there on a Green Car (first class).

PS: Since it got cherry blossoms season in Japan, Japanese nation was in pink in real anyway. Hahaha.
