There were policemen everywhere in Shizuoka City today, apparently on a safety campaign!
Those two middle-aged policemen stopped those three teenage girls (probably high school students on holiday) for the spurious reason of checking the only one bicycle among them…
They spent a needlessly long time checking and checking again, explaining that they were looking for stolen bicycles…
They spent enough time with the girls who did nothing to hide their contempt to allow me an eternity to take a half dozen pics to choose from.
Japan is the safest country in the world, but that kind of behavior (in a crowded street) by two middle-aged policemen towards under age (20 in Japan) girls is just a bit too much…

Haha! Robert-Gilles, you might get into trouble 😉 Japanese policemen seemed very serious to me (although extremely helpful!).
I do get into trouble sometimes but I’m always getting out of it because every time a policemen reports me as he is always informed that I used to practice judo with and against policemen some time ago! LOL
I only had good interactions with Japanese policemen.
Maybe they were just distracting themselves with the girls tho.
