Sunday Oct. 8 - The Japanese, Large, Medium And Small
While being tall is bad when out in thunder and lightning, my height usually makes it easier to navigate. But contrary to my expectations, here I do not feel like a giant in an ocean of smurfs, when I’m in a crowded subway car or on the street. The older generation is actually quite small, the next one about one head shorter, and those my age typically half a head below me. The youngsters are often as tall as I am, even some of the girls. Don’t se many thick people either, much less obese ones. And very few wear traditional clothes, so the place seems very westernized.
