Japan Waves

Oh, that could be a bit touchy. No, nothing to do with the tragedy of last year.

I've been in a wave pool a couple of times. They were good fun, but I would have liked bigger waves. Of course being of Anglo Saxon heritage, I maintained a .33 of a metre space around me. Seems it might have been pretty difficult to do in a Japanese wave pool, although they may have given the dirty foreigner some space.

  1. That looks like fun! but it's terribly crowded in there.

  2. River, it is not how I recall my wave pool experience.

  3. How about the floaties? Looks like a number of them cannot swim. And this is fun? To me it looks worse than a bungee jump.

  4. Elisabeth, I wouldn't like to see the results of a ph test of the water at closing time.

  5. Oh Crikey, you might as well be in one of their crowded subway trains on a hot day without any antiperspirant on for all the fun that looks like...

  6. Don't think this one looks like a lot of fun despite the floaties.

  7. Yeah Kath, not great fun, but no one on Jap subways ever smells. They are scrupulously clean.

    Christine, it is just too many people having fun. Too many people for us Westerners to imagine, yet in Japan, I never felt crowded.

  8. Looks like you would need to take a cut lunch with you, to tide you over until you could get back to shore after catching a wave.

  10. Not for me, I would panic with claustrophobia. What happens if you are right in the middle and feel the need to leave the pool quickly?

  11. You'd need to take black trackers with you to find your way out :-).

  14. Why Victor, would you need to leave the pool quickly?

    Windsmoke, our friend who was an NT cop had one who he was very fond of and keeps in touch with.

    No you haven't Rubye. I have more up my sleeve.

    Being Japan, MC, they would be politely lifted up with much head bowing.

  15. I can think of at least three reasons, one of which is an attack of claustrophobia.

  16. Leaving two unexplained reasons Victor.

  19. They're so used to being crowded, but oh no, not for me! All those bodies.... I don't care how clean the Japanese are. And I was claustrophobic in the crowds at Fountain Gate yesterday.....
