eTrex Vista price drop to 79800 yen. I wonder how much it was. It's $770 per today's exchange rate. How ridiculous.

Ueno/Akihabara Cache Hunt

I went geocaching to Ueno and Akihabara. I stopped by Omiya Hachiman (shrine) in Eifuku-cho first.

Terapia Fishing at Arako River

I took my nephew to a local river for fishing per his request.


Arako River

The river usually has a lot of terapias when it has water. Water was not clear as it rained on the previous day.

Result: me 20+, my nephew 2 w/ my help.

Sekibutus - Buddhist Statues

I found them at the Sanpou-ji temple while I was geocaching. I used to live nearby but I did't know them. Actually, I didn't know the temple itself.

I carefully observed and found them very old. This one has been there since 1682. I believe there are older ones. I have to go back there again.

A view from the Akihabara station

About $25 worth of toy crane machine result: chocolate and stupid toys. I totally hated myself. GPS is not included, of course.
