Shoe Spotting in Japan
Dave has been on exchange in Japan
since the end of March. He hasn't had many opportunities to email, but has found the time to share some photos of his journey.
As you may know, Aurora Shoes have become very popular in Japan. We all wondered if he'd spot many while there. If these photos are any indication, they're not very hard to find.
It's customary to remove one's shoes before entering a temple or a home in Japan. Lucky for Dave, this eliminates the need for awkward translations such as, "Would it be OK to photograph your feet?"
We're guessing this is Dave's own foot with the Hello Kitty sidewalk tile.
