Double shirt, shorts, nerd glasses. Yes, I am looking.
Looking toward the sky at Tori no ichi festival, at Hanazono shrine. I wonder what’s up there.
Set to start in January, 2014. Looks uber hipster. Will it be serious or campy?
This real-life site of gay worship, Eros, will be featured in the new HBO series Looking, which sounds like a gay male cross between Girls and Sex and the City. I feel like they’re filming in my “home.” Hope it turns out fun.
Have I mentioned that visiting the Emperor on his twice a year speeches is extremely satisfying for those who enjoy seeing men in uniform?
A flock of Japanese police, especially when assigned to the Imperial Palace, perfectly captures the appearance of being busy. I think the men are as stylized and ordered as the luxuriously pruned black pine garden behind them.
It’s an annual freshman event at the Annapolis naval academy. I think I got pregnant just looking at this photo. Many more photos on Buzzfeed. Via JoeMyGod.
“Spread eagle,” worn as a three pink tone, muscle t-shirt by a neighborhood lad, is an invitation to a crime. Recently I saw an even more directly inappropriate teen t-shirt message: “Arctic Monkeys, Suck it and See.” This music fan may not have understood the lyrics, but his hair and outfit were asking to be observed.
I still have not discovered what the Japanese word for jailbait is. What is the age of consent, or of propriety? Are the teens somehow complicit? Even looking feels like a crime.

As someone who is not often respectful of authority, I am always struck by how good-looking Tokyo cops are. And there’s nothing better than small groups of them looking busy!
