‘London–Paris’ eyes / ロン — パリの目 / Ron Pari no me is obscure but amusing Japanese slang (3Yen 2010-09-26) describing someone with eyes pointing in opposite directions.
Having crossed eyes and odd eye orientations is a common malady in Japan. It’s a “Push–Pull” situation.
Push—Bad vision is a genetic trait in Japanese caused by shallow eye sockets.
Pull—Japanese do not bother to correct is problem because: they think it’s cute, Japan medicine ignores it, correcting deformities has poor culture acceptance, Japanese Buddhism frowns on “cutting” the body, and Japanese people have high inertia to changing anything.
″ This morning our Tropical Rock Lobster molted.
It’s been about 10 months from its last molting and it has grown even larger (^^).
Here’s the lobster shown next to me (I’m 157 cm tall).″
The dead-looking guy in the photo, Mr. Gogo7188sakana, works at aquarium “Marine World — Uminonakamichi,” which is located in Kyushu’s Fukuoka City in the deep south of Japan.
The aquarium’s Tropical Rock Lobster (aka Ornate Rock Lobster, Ornate Spiny Lobster or Ornate Tropical Rock Lobster is the Panulirus ornatus (Wiki, see right)) is quite the monster of the deep, isn’t it?

To the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Tourists,
Welcome to Japan.
The land where both the future and the past exist together in a beautiful harmony.
We understand that you do not like the fact that you cannot use your foreign bank or credit card since we don’t have bank and credit card machines for payment of our goods and everything is paid by cash. And, even if we do have some card readers, we don’t trust foreign banks anyway. Sorry about that.
So for your upcoming trip we have invented another solution. ↘
Please enjoy your wonderful stay in Japan!
