Traveling, in general, isn’t fun. Sure, if you’re going on vacation, the journey is part of the trip so you may be able to concentrate on the good parts of the travel, rather than the rushing and delays and being squashed in a tin can like sardines for hours on end. And some airports have made the “airport experience” more interesting (and profitable) with enhanced shopping, dining and even personal services like massages available.
But there are a few airports around the world that have added some VERY different experiences…
Joe and I love Japan. I’ve been there 4 times and Joe 3, and we’re looking at 2020 for our 5th/4th visit. Now, if there’s one thing we can count on from Japan, it’s its quirkiness or even, if you’ll forgive us, its weirdness. Cuz really…for every charming thing like Hayao Miyazaki films, or amazingly fun thing like Tokyo Disneyland/Tokyo DisneySea, or gorgeous natural thing like Mt. Fuji, there’s the off-center thing like MXC (Most Extreme Challenge – I LOVE that show), an incinerator that looks like a theme park, or the annual Kanamara Matsuri, also known as the Penis Festival ( <– YouTube link is NSFW). If you haven’t figured it out yet, Joe and I really like off-center stuff (OK, maybe not the Penis Festival so much), which, yeah, plays a part in why we describe YMMV as, “A slightly off-center look at travel, hotel points, frequent flyer miles & other ways to save.”
So when I found out there’s a guy in Japan that has essentially made an art form of photographing quirky/weird public toilets in Japan, let’s just say I wasn’t the least bit surprised…
How wearing compression stockings may help with swollen feet and legs on a plane (and might save your life, too!).
