(900) Well, can you?

A while back, I wrote en about the exotic variation of the geta (下駄) clogs, the ones called "ipponba-geta" (一本歯下駄) or "tengu-geta" (天狗下駄) -the post is here. In the picture, a challenge from a shop selling them: can you walk keeping your balance on their single "tooth"? No, I didn't try it and no, I most probably can't.
