People watching – The Sailor Man

Whenever I run into a fellow gaijin my attention is drawn towards them. They (we) just stand out so much among the mass of dark-haired, small Japanese people.

But this guy on the train stood out more than usual. I name him ‘The Sailor Man’, as he seems more at home in a sail boat than in a Japanese train. All that’s missing to complete his look are canvas shoes and a pipe.

The sailor man, Japan

  1. I miss seeing people dressed like that out and about. That and his stature speak to me of home…. lol, I hope that doesn’t make me racist. But I do feel like I want to know more about him.
