    No need to wander. Just come in and play Pachinko.

  6. popper | 4:06 am |

    I keep wandering around looking for the joy in my life.

  7. Pete | 4:57 am |

    That is the EMPTIEST Japanese parking lot I have EVER seen!
    (And I’ve seen many.)

  8. Grifter | 5:09 am |

    Proof that life really has no direction…

  9. Brandon | 5:34 am |

    And I wander
    I wa-, wa-, wa-, wa-, wander
    Why she ran away
    And I wander where she will stay
    My little runaway.

    I suppose being a building would hinder your ability to wander. And some people just aren’t happy or joyful where they are.

  11. Xila | 6:15 am |

    And why did they give me this ugly two-tone paint job?

  12. Pete | 6:22 am |

    I wander wander wander WHO
    (who)
    Who wrote the book of Love?
    (And Kum cars too)

  13. Pete | 6:26 am |

    I noticed that the photo was taken in Mito…famous for another known Japanese wanderer, Mito Komon, lead character in a popular Japanese TV show that has been on for decades. (Although the original cast was the best and later casts left a lot to be desired.)

    For captioners who currently or have lived for long periods in Japan and know the language and culture, no further explanation needed.

    He was some aged relative of the shogun who used to travel around Japan like Robin Hood with a band of samurai and a ninja or two along with some goofy foodie who provided comic relief and a woman as an extra sidekick.

    Just ironic that Mito has a wandering theme to it, that’s all.

  14. Pete | 6:29 am |

    That “further explanation” was for those who have never lived in Japan and not familiar w/the TV show.

    Presenting with deeply felt of my apologies.

  15. Chris | 7:09 am |

    They call me the wonderer…

  16. Sparkly Boof | 7:39 am |

    I sit and pander these things often.

    Mito…hometown of Stevie Wander…known inside the ugly two-tone building as Saburo Yamashita.

  22. NotHere | 11:06 am |

  23. jjhitt | 12:54 pm |

    I dont have time to wander, I’m still looking for the book on Elenor Roosevect.

  24. Pete | 1:36 pm |

    My Kum Car ran out of petrol.
    No more wandering for me.
    So much for joy in my life!

  25. TJ | 4:57 pm |

    All I wanted to do was play pachinko, and now I find myself ready to jump off a cliff.

  26. TJ | 4:58 pm |

    Who knew buildings could be so existential?

  27. g.r. | 5:23 pm |

    I wander where everyone went after seeing the paint scheme.

  28. Pete | 5:28 pm |

    They were so embarrassed to work in such an ugly building, they all wandered off, I guess.

  29. DanT | 7:16 pm |

    I see the anti-gambling (or should that be gombling?) association has been busy…

  30. Chaosweaver | 8:59 pm |

    Yeah, I’d be “wandering” that if I were painted with such a hideos combination of colours as well.

  31. BeadyEl | 10:02 am |

    And even as I wander, I’m keeping you in sight
    You’re the one who ponders “What joy is in my life?”
    And I’m getting closer than I ever thought I might….

  32. Chaosweaver | 12:19 pm |

    Don’t wander, just hate yourself and try a different color next time.
