My future self looks heaven-ward

Looking toward the sky at Tori no ichi festival, at Hanazono shrine. I wonder what’s up there.

Who doesn’t love big men’s hair?

Calling all big men’s hair fans, and those hoping for some more cash in the new year. Tonight and tomorrow are the second installment of the lucky rake festival, Tori no Ichi. There are other spots to celebrate good fortune, but none better than Hanazono shrine in Shinjuku.

I think it’s now cold enough to dust off my men’s wig. See you there!
