Rows of pretty things in Japan

I think Japanese are used to waiting in a long line for a long time, such as at stations or at the Tokyo Disney Land. I’m sure they are just used to it, not that they like it. From the way they are sitting or standing in a line without showing jaded faces, you might start thinking the word ‘Japanese’ containing a meaning ‘patience.’ You can see many Japanese being patient in many articles regarding the earthquake which occurred last month.


Maybe everything in Japan, animals or birds, already became influenced by the Japanese. Now that waiting in a line and staying silent might become the characteristic to the animals or birds in Japan. Let me show you some examples. I just took these photos while talking a walk a few days ago.

First of all, I just saw a bird following another bird in a river. Are they ducks?

These two birds look like they love being alone.

Even carps, they love being in a row. Can you see? They are a couple or something? Maybe they were chatting with each other like this, “Honey, it’s a shiny day today!” “Yeah, but it’s a bit chilly under the water. Come a little bit closer, baby(get it on get it on).” Have you ever heard of the phrase? lol

I finally found creatures lining like Japanese. Turtles! What are they thinking of?

How come turtles often bask in the sunshine? I just checked it on the Internet. First, turtles are one of reptiles; they need to be in a constant temperature. Second, turtles have capillaries under their shells. Basking can help blood flow. For other reasons, the sunshine can prevent turtles from deforming their shells and can kill parasites on their surfaces.

Last of all, pigeons, doves, are also lining above me.

Animals and birds in Japan love lining. 😉

    Hi H.P. 🙂

    It’s been awhile. Hope all is well.

    Yes, I noticed that they do that a lot. Stoicism.

    Over here sometimes the birds tend to chase and peck at each other. Must be the environment.

    Yes, you’re right. The word ‘discipline’ is often used and loved in this country. Animals and birds in Japan are well-educated, I guess;)

    However, sometimes the word prevents us from arguing freely 😦

    Agree with that.
