Japanese scarecrows silently staring…

With the harvesting of rice in Tokyo not far away, it’s time once again for the city’s sinister scarecrows to do their work. A job that obviously involves deterring birds, but it often feels like their main focus is staring menacingly at me.

Japanese scarecrows

And now you.

Japanese scarecrows

    At least the scarecrows are not radioactive. Nor is the rice in Fukushima by the latest reports (yay!).
    Its the best rice in the world… so the locals say, but certainly I will never forget it’s fragrance… seared into the memories…

    The scarecrows need a haircut and nicer clothes.
    Also, wash their face so that they can have a better stare! :)
