Japanese Honeybees vs Hornets

 Defending the honeycomb entrance.

It seems they've killed a few already.

Fanned Cushion

Noisy but works well

ねこ (Neko - Cat)

Got a free ticket to a cat photo exhibition (no pics allowed inside).

Special Taste Catpis
Ended up spending more than 5000 yen... (photo book, catnip toy, post cards, etc)

Pepsi Refresh Shot

200ml smaller can. Twice more caffeine than regular Pepsi. 200ml / 350ml => 43% less for the same price. Tastes almost the same. It's fair to conclude this is bs.

Air Conditioned Jacket

I'm not sure if it's better than T-shirt...

Found them when I got home in front of my doors. The summer has come.

Giant Leech

Wikipeida says this guy grows up 1m long. I tried to pick it up but it was too sticky.


The tiniest kind  of cicadas in this area have started singing. This guy was on the ground while its wings are still wrinkly. I hope it's not too late.

Beetle Trap

I'm hoping to get some stag beetles... So far no luck.

Walking Kugayama

I don't know why Inokashira-line's rapid trains make a stop for this town. Maybe for school kids. Totally boring town.

Went to a manga event, Comitia, at Tokyo Big Sight last week end to get manga by armature manga writers (I'm in a digital manga project team now).

Tokyo Big Sight
Our manga team didn't have enough people to get manga at Comitia so I volunteered but being the last one to volunteer, I ended up being responsible to buy girls' and gay-lesbian manga, oh well. It was, however, a lot more fun that I imagined. A totally different world.

Over 4000 amature manga writers gathered in one place. Many of them are really talented. Can't believe this is much smaller than the largest manga event.

Some of the manga I bought.
Most of them were priced 300 ~ 1000 yen and I spent 12950 yen. The other guys from the team spent more than 30000 yen. We got more than 200 manga.

Forgot to upload pics from the trip :(
