[Got nothing to say? Yank an old photograph out of your ass and post it!]

Old and new in Tokyo.

This was taken in the spring of 1980, during my first visit to Tokyo. You’re looking at one of the small buildings on the grounds of the Imperial Palace.

When you’re at the Imperial Palace, it’s easy to imagine that you are in another century...until you see the modern glass and steel of contemporary Tokyo looming in the background. So much for Zen contemplation among the sculptured gardens.

“What is the sound of one horn honking?”
