Locked In– Whoops! :D

Hey, remember when you got locked inside Shinjuku Park in Tokyo cause you didn’t realize the barred doors sealed at 4:30pm? That was fun.

Remember how you were innocently doing headstands in the lush, plush expanses of grass, then writing, full of peace, while the mosquitoes lovingly sucked your blood?

Remember those GIGUNDO crows, and the deafening opera of cicadas for all four hours you were there?

Remember the first time you used a classic Japanese squat toilet?

Don’t forget to thank the bicycle cop for catching you at your lakeside perch and pointing you to the one, far-off unlocked gate.

Note to self: learn Japanese BEFORE entering locking enclosures ;)

I find it difficult to believe that a building would have such high security that you wouldn't be able to get out. I thought that it would make the most sense to be able to open a locked door from the inside. Now I need to re-think all security precautions I've ever made.

Oh my God! I can't believe you got stuck there! It all sounded so nice until you got locked in :D

Now that is the kind of thing I would never see in Boston unless you are a tourist!

No... I never been locked up inside Shinjuku Park in Tokyo. But that would be SO FUN. One time, my friends got locked up in a community center and didn't know that they got locked in so when they opened the door, the alarm went off. All the police officers ran to see what was going on. I actually went to China and some of the toilets are similar to that. I don't remember my age but I was pretty young. I was very uncomfortable going to the bathroom there.
