Photo of the Day: Cleaning Up

imageI love that people still use this kind of broom, which—until I came to Japan—I thought only existed in fables about witches and wizards these days.

How wrong I was!

Witch brooms (not their real name, of course) are still very much a part of life here, and they do a great job. They’re also much more pleasing to the eye than your average plastic broom. Why, I’d never think to snap a pic of one of those, but here, with a bamboo rake and in black and white, witch brooms are quite nice.
