YOU DON'T HAVE A SLIDE IN YOUR HOUSE?

Still shaking off the beginning of the week doldrums? Let's watch Kazuo Umezu ride down the 2nd story slide he installed in his holiday house in Nagano:


Um, have I ever mention that I love this man?

I want him to adopt me.

This guy is almost too cool to be true. I wish he had live in my neighborhood when I was a kid.

(Just to be sure though, he's never molested any kids, has he?)

@Yuri: Me too! Oh, and I want a villa in the woods of Nagano too :)

@kouros: SAME! One day I'll meet him, I swear it.

@Locnar: He's the best! Definitely not a molester, sir. He's the Mr. Rogers of Japan!

I stumbled on this video last night... ridiculously cool. I wish I'd had the guts to ring his buzzer when I was in his area the other month!

aw man he has a slide?!
he is ageless, this one.

Jaclyn said...

he's so cute! I want to hug him.

All I want in life is to meet him and hug him.
Dunno if he'd know what was going on though (does he speak English well? I don't think so) and my Japanese is so basic I would not be able to explain how much I love him and must hug him.

@jimpac: Haha, ringing his buzzer might have been a bit scary (for him). Umezz Fest 09!

@That Guy: He is unstoppable

@Jaclyn: Same here! He lived in San Francisco for a while (had a house in Pacific Heights) so I figure he probably speaks well enough to understand crazy Americans hugging him.
