The Shrine at Aqua City Tokyo
Japan Japan in Haiku Technology Travel

Japan in Haiku 14: Heavenly Cloud

Heavenly Cloud

Fear of data loss?
Seek blessing at I.T. shrine,
for Godly back-up.

There seems to be a shrine for everything in Japan. Pay your respects, make your offering and seek blessings wisely and maybe everything will be alright. The kids were intrigued to find a shrine for geeks at the top of a multi storey car park at the Aqua City shopping centre in Tokyo. Not the kind of place you would expect any kind of shrine, let alone one where you could appeal for hi tech back up.

But having lost an i-Pod in a glacier on a former trip, the kids are taking no chances. And neither am I. We all clap and bow and wish for the safe passage of our phones and computers. Suitably Tokyo don’t you think?
