Sometimes I like to slip away from the office for a second and watch the city below. It calms my mind and lets. me decompress ab bit before getting back to the grind.
Another picture from my visit to Takayama in November.
They slept peacefully next to each other for almost an hour.
This sweetheart allowed me to carry her about for at least 20 minutes. I miss the feeling of holding a kitty cat.
There are few things cuter than a sleeping kitty.
During last weekend’s snow storm, I was working in Anjo, Aichi. It’s one of the places that got hit pretty hard. I got out of work around 8:20 and the snow was always starting to pile up.
Not many people were out and about, save for a few people trying to get home. Thankfully, the station in only a two minute walk from work, so I didn’t have to trek far.
Nagoya saw its first big snowfall last weekend. The storm hit Aichi, Gifu, and Mie, dropping up to 15 cm of snow in some places.
The snow started around 10 am, around the time I had to head into work. It got heavier as the day went on.
The trains were delayed about 45 minutes and by the time I got home, it was a bit late. Also, the walk home from the station was pretty slippery.
I world say Nakamura Kuyakusho (my neighbourhood) got about 8 cm (just over 4 in). Luck for us, it’s almost completely melted.
During the holidays, Nagoya TV Tower hosted a special event showcasing the city-scape at night. It was with a special light show by a famous FX group called Naked.
The entry price was a little more expensive than the usual entrance fee, being 1000 yen instead of 700 yen, but it was well worth it.
The light show was pretty cool, but nothing compared to the city lights below. The indoor viewing deck shows a 360 degree view of the city. It is also 90 metres above street level.
From the deck, you can see Central Park, Oasis 21, the Sakae shopping district, Hisaya Oodori, and the famous Ferris Wheel. During the day, you can also go to the open air observation deck, above the enclosed one. It’s fenced in, and quite chilly on a windy day, but a whole 100 metres above street level. Unfortunately, during events such as these, that deck is closed to visitors.
My friend is obsessed with space, so the last time we went to the science museum, we visited the space section again.
