I don’t really have much to write about, except that I am meeting up with an old friend in Kyoto this coming weekend so expect tons more shots if I can remember how to use my camera :P.
In the mean time, I received a request a while ago from a commentor, Lorfarius, for a post where I just take shots of everything I see so people get a better idea of what Japan is like. So I set out doing just that! Lorfarius are you still there? 😀 Anyone else have suggestions on what they’d like to see to? Hit the jump to join me on my walk or 散歩 – sanpo in Japanese.
One thing you do notice when you live in Japan is how there are almost always street performers in any public place with significant area. These guys parked their truck on the sidewalk, setup, and started performing. It’s also pretty cool how most of these groups are actually pretty good. I guess they are wannabe pros who couldn’t quite make the cut in highly competitive Japan.
Passing by the entrance to Osu, Nagoya. I’ve covered this place before, in a previous post called Oosu, Nagoya. I’m going to avoid going inside. Every time I do, I always end up with over 10,000 yen in things that I didn’t actually mean to buy. Gotta save up for the travelling I will be doing in August when some more friends will be coming over to Japan.
Nagoya is serviced by three major types of rail. I’ve already talked about the Meitetsu rail which takes me home and the subway as well. The last one is the JR line, which connects Nagoya to its suburban areas where people actually live and to the other major cities of Japan.
What I really set out to do before taking a walk was to represent my company’s branch in our intra-company baseball competition. Here’s a team mate hitting a homerun! We got crushed 11-4 in the first game and were the first team out of the competition :(. Got dodgeball coming up though, hopefully that will turn out better.
Just two more pics taken as I headed home! I found this secluded area near my home that actually looked quite beautiful…
Well that’s it for this time. I do need to finish reading the instruction manual for the D60. I still feel the camera is better than me, but hopefully I’ll have better shots befitting of this camera before I go home. Until next time! Thanks for reading!
