Okay, I've definitely been here too long...it took me a couple of re-reads to not read it with Japanese pronunciation...now a much overdue LOL!
vk, that definitely sounds as though you've been here too long! it's just screaming out at you.
That's a bit like that Russian guy, Boris Jakov.
I didn't get it until I read the comments. I musta been there pretty damn long.
Hah, glad I'm not the only one who had to read it a few times. My SO's family live near there and when I'm in Japan I often have to go along that street to get to the station. Or more often than not, take the longer way round the side streets because Takeshita-dori itself is too crowded.
