Tonight, over bowls of nabe and litres of shochu, with a bunch of Japanese and English people, the subject of black triangles came up.
Japan, despite it's open attitude to nudity (onsens, etc) will not allow pubic hair to be shown on television or in the majority of porn films apparantly and, instead it has to be covered up by a small black triangle.
We were all getting pretty drunk so the conversation didn't go much further than a bunch of jokes and a heap of laughter which won't translate into writing. It's an interesting point though.
(Hey, if you're after a world view or an argument about politics you've come to the wrong blog. This is about fluff n stuff in Tokyo, okay.)
Oh and I saw a tree with buds about to explode.... isn't it a bit early? It's freeeeeeezing in Tokyo right now.
I'll miss the multitude of daffodils in the UK every spring this year. I loved that! Still, I'll be avidly chasing cherry blossom with the rest of the country come spring.
