Doesn't look very comfortable for sure.

Ah, the ineffable natural beauty of the Japanese concrete park. I always find the best way to contemplate our unique four seasons - we have four seasons in Japan, you know? - is to sprawl on concrete slab in a mass of flat grey concrete and have the boiling heat of summertime reflected and magnified by our traditional Japanese concrete.

Really - where else in the world would this be called a park?

Too bad Yokohama is not Singapore, where the water is actually clean enough to swim in.

He must be burning his hands on the warm concrete. Very strange pose. Concrete parks have the advantage of not having so many mosquitos/bugs.

That's the Rinko Park, just google it, plenty of green out there.

It's not Rinko Park. It's NEAR the park but the lack of green should give you a clue.

This guy is planking... not sunbathing.

Does the phrase "skin cancer" ring any bells here?

Somehow it reminds me of a scene from "Apocalypto".

used to be true but not anymore, and causing a huge problem recently as people don`t take adequate protective measures because of this very assumption (according to my Japanese dermatologist who specialises in skin cancers)

Wonder if this guy actually knows he is now pic of the day? Did they ask him before taking the pic?

Planker, plonker, whatever. Is this one for the ladies then? BTW, it's a park because there aren't any buildings on it. Ebina used to have a nice park right next to the station, and now it's a shopping center. Sigh!

Maitake -- agreed. Nothing like parks that probably contribute to the Heat Island effect, rather than provide relief from it. Green space in Tokyo/Yokohama is basically an oxymoron.
