i'm sure the stuff without meat, fish, fish flakes or seaweed in it is lovely. i'll let you know when i find it.

have you tried the vending places with the plastic models of the dishes? you can get veggie tempura with noodles (often without fish sauce) - not exactly a bring the family type place though..

we haven't ventured outside shinjuku yet - actually we haven't left this road yet, what with the heat and the jet lag and stuff (i was out on me balcony watching the sun come up at 4.30am this morning) - but so far all the plastic model places don't have english signage so it's impossible to know what each dish is.

Adam and Joe:

well i've been a lot o' places in this big old world
but i've never seen a place like this.
the buildings' kinda tall and the people kinda small and everybody eat a lot of fish...
the streets are pretty busy it can make you awful dizzy when your trying to find your way around
so heres a little rhyme you can use it all the time when you're lost in Tokyo town.--
chorus x 2Wakarimashita, [ I understood. ]
Wakarimasen, [ I don't understand! ]
Wakarimashita ka ? [ do you understand? ]Doko desu ka ? [ where is it? ]
Itsu desu ka ? [ when is it? ]
Nani desu ka ? [ what is it? ]
--it's a fascinating city
but it looks a little shitty
when it's raining and it's grey
when the sun's done a sinkin'
and the lights are on and blinkin'
and baby it looks okay
well they say its futuristic but its also innovistic
its a contradictory place.
when im walkin' through Shibuya feel like singin halleluyah
even though theres limited space.--

ok this staring at the baby thing is getting a little unsettling. i mean it's nice to have a dozen people in a lift laughing and chatting with yer kid and all, but it feels like we're living in children of men or something. i think i saw 1 other baby today.

Hot out there too is it? Humid or what? I sit next to a lad from Singapore, he said its basically like living in the jungle greenhouse at the botanic gardens there.

Babies seem to love the heat though.

They're all happy little things round toddling and wriggling about here in the blazing heat, and everyone else is fucking dying.

yeah it's pretty humid alright, but she's been grand so far.

just looked out the window and the smog looks shocking today. will make for a good photo though, so that's the main thing.

snickers, pringles & coke for breakfast. yum.
