Last July, 2010, in Tokyo for research at the archives of the former Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications, now called “Tei-park,” National Diet Library, and the used book stores of Jinbocho to hunt for postcards from imperial Japan. It was a very productive two weeks. And a great time to catch up with friends and colleagues.
Best part of Parliament, at least for me.
A functional building, that Diet Library.
An interesting way to say good-bye to PM Aso.
View from Hejiribashi, between Ochanomizu station and my hotel room nearby.
Typical Jinbocho scene. Old Book Town.
