CIRCLE PACIFIC ADVENTURE: Day #7--The Color Green
I've now been in Japan for a week, and noted that something was different this time. On train rides throughout the country, even with all the concrete and technology, the color green dominates.
After my cataract surgery, the whites looked really white, and the blacks deeply black. What happened was that the yellowish filter over my eye was removed, and, in addition to 20-20 vision now, colors look a lot more vivid.
Also, too, I once had to wear glasses to drive and just walk around, usually with photochromic lenses that changed shades. Now that I don't wear glasses anymore, that greenish/grayish coloration is no longer there.
Clearly, not only green, but all the hues are more brighter. Cataract surgery has certainly improved my life.
So, back to my three meals today:
Breakfast as the Sheraton Grande Ocean Resort, soba and sake on the Kirishima to Kagoshima-Chuo and Burger King and Kirin Beer at the St. Regis Osaka. Tomorrow, on to Sendai.
