熊本市 Kumamoto-shi April, 1995. I am concluding my flashback memories of Japan with this image I took after getting off the train in Kumamoto. I was intrigued by this "No More Gun" sign given how safe Japan is, and the practical non-existence of private gun ownership throughout this peaceful nation. I was also intrigued by the prominent signeage displays outside of the major train stations. Visiting Japan was a transformational experience from many perspectives; being showered by its beautiful scenery, rich history and kindness from everyone I met.
