    I have never seen Chozubachi like this one! Beautiful lights and shadows here, Ben!

    Mamoru Yasuda Thank you, Mamoru. This is at a shrine near Kameido station famous for its wisteria. I really just chanced upon it on the way to a pet store!

    Ha I should really read titles before things like being amazed at a real turtle slurping water out of the air occurs.
