Okage Yokochou

The old-style shopping street in front of the Grand Shrine of Ise.

Mosquito incense coil holder

Ise Udon (flour noodle)

Fishing Trip in Shima

Some fish pictures from the trip. None was big enough for dinner.

Crab Mating

Found them blocking our way.


Bugs I recently found.

This guy's wings are beautiful inside but I could not keep him on my hand.

Cicada Shell

Taiko no Tatsujin (Drum Master)

This is another popular game here. It's really fun but it's lots more difficult than it looks.

This guy is absolutely crazy.

Kichijoji Shopping Arcade

I bought and attached an external mic for the camcorder. This shopping arcade locates in front of the Kichijoji station I use to commute.

Meal Ticket Machine

A meal ticket machine at a noodle house. You have to decide what to eat before you sit down. This is very common at noodel houses.

It's getting hotter and hotter. Yesterday was over 35 degrees Celsius. It was little cloudy today but still over 30 . The air is getting dense. Summer has come.

Yet another beetle breeding pictures. My babies have become adults. 10 males/10 females.

Male Beetle

Male Pupa

Reddish Beetle and Atlas Beetles

All of them are much larger than their parents. Here is one of their parents from last year. He's eating the same size jelly. So tiny.

Mobile Phone?

Found it during lunchtime walk. It can make phone calls but I'm not sure if it's a mobile phone or not. It seems Vista is loaded on it.

Wine Bar in Shibuya

Would you like some sparkling pee? We have some bloody pee too.

DJ Troopers

Amazing. I've tried a similar game but even the tile drop speed is slowest, it's difficult. This is one of the things you can enjoy in Akihabara. Best players gather here.


Joined a futsal team. The play field is on the roof of a building. They charge 4000 yen for an hour of field use. It just cannot be helped I guess. No land.


Found an "itasha" in Akihabara.

Front View

Literally, "ita" means pain and "sha" means car. This one is just messy but some are really nicely done. Find some more here.

Rear View

I also found penguins and a lot of maids.
