      It looks like it was taken by a Minolta in 1997.

        Obviously, this means that this was tweeted in 1998, simple

        I’m thinking it has that polaroid vibe.

          Minoltas were always drunk

          I can’t. It’s a joke.

          It looks like all the print photos I remember from the 1990s. Back then, my grandfather always walked around with a pocket Minolta 35mm camera. I loved playing with the sliding shutter guard.

            I bet that was a good camera then! Might it have been the lens protector rather than shutter guard?

      That’s what pictures from the past look like.

      Maybe but Japanese people are super friendly.

      I got lost in a random Tokyo neighborhood and a random guy came out, tapped my dude shoulders and showed my ugly ass where my Airbnb was. This was after the Uber driver walked me 1.5 blocks (leaving his car engine on with the keys inside) to show me where he thought it was. I went to a bar and the bartender snuck a umbrella in my arm when it rained, and told me if I got lost, to call him. And a random person, realizing I was born stupid, help me use a washing machine.

      Amazing amazing humans in Japan.

        It’s true. Once, when I was visiting Kyoto, I actually forgot how to eat, and a kind elderly man held me and tenderly bottle-fed me. I didn’t even ask him to.

          It feels like everyone has a story like this. I visited Osaka this one time and I was couldn’t open the package that my lunch was in. This very ordinary looking salaryman approached me and without saying a word took, the package from me, ate it whole, then vomited it directly down my throat as an easily-digestible slurry fortified with immunity-boosting enzymes and developmentally-critical animo acids. He literally wouldn’t stop.

      How do you know? Did you go to Okinawa and try it?

          No one caught you. You need to throw out some words like halo effect and then a research paper about how attractive people get ahead in life more easily. Plus you don’t need to be in Okinawa because you are making a general statement about how societies function. Don’t give up! <3

    Ok, but this has got to be a core cherished memory forever.

    Nice, wholesome, like a life lived.

    He looks undecided if he should be happy or pissed off.
