Not far from the famous crab sign, out of the neon flicker, Hokkyokusei humbly awaits your discovery. They invented "omuraisu", otherwise known as omelet rice, and they're proud of it. It is as you might infer, an omelet stuffed with rice.
Unfortunately, there's a catch. To eat their invention, you have to sit on the floor. The Japanese have invented a lot of cool stuff but one of their worst ideas was sitting on the floor. There is nothing good about it. Nothing comfortable about it. When I began to take off my shoes, a dark cloud gathered. I laughed when they handed me my locker key - the number said it all.
Yes, I was on vacation so I made the best of it. I put my shoes in the locker and did a few toe touches to stretch out my Pliocene hamstrings.
I considered going with the "cow face pose" but figured I'd spill a lot of omelet on my back. I started out sitting with my knees tucked under my chin but every five minutes I'd shift to another position. I stared at my umbrella locker key and tried to go into a zen trance as I waited for the food to arrive.
