Have a patriotic beer with your navy curry

Are you a patriotic Japanese? If you are, then you should probably be drinking this beer...it commemorates the 100-yr anniversary of winning the war against Russia. I have a can in my refrigerator, which I will save for a special occassion. If I had more, I could find some of the right-wing protestors and share with them.

In Japan, there is a VERY vocal minority on the far right of the political spectrum. As opposed to the US, where they get elected president and cause all sorts of international mayhem, the right wingers here simply drive around in big black vans with loudspeakers on the top. I have been thinking about them recently because they drive around near my neighborhood on Saturday mornings. EARLY saturday mornings.

Anyway, even if I do not drink with them, I hope to get some pictures of them soon. Maybe we can pose with my Monkey Island shirt. Or, maybe we will go down to Yokosuka and have some "Mr. Navy Curry" with our patriotic beer.
