Furukawa Art Museum

Today, on a whim, I visited the Furukawa Art Museum. I had been running errands at Nagoya Station when I caught sight of a flyer similar to the one above. Being a cat person, I googled the exibit, before deciding to go. It wasn’t too troublesome to find, though I did almost go the weong […]

Sunset over Gifu

I had an assignment in Gifu last week. The school is on the 8th floor and has a lot of windows. During my break, I was able to get a picture of the sunset. Recently, the sunset has been getting earlier. Since moving here, I’ve been struggling to get used to early mornings and evenings. […]

Toyota City Picture Spot

The city of Toyota hosted the Rugby World Cup this year and because of which, the city also set aside many photo spots for foreign tourists. One such place is in the building where I am currently working. It is visible straight away once you enter through the second floor entrance. It is set up […]

Tokyo Station

The Dragon of Enoshima Cave

There is a legend that a dragon inhabits the caves of Enoshima Island. To bring the legend to life, the tourism board put a statue (complete with sound and lighting effects) in said cave.

Back Alley Matsusaka

I was sent to Matsusaka in Mie Prefecture for a couple of days this month. While there, I managed to do a tiny bit of exploring during my lunch break. There are many of these small alleys, lined with mom and pop restaurants. If I had more time, I would have liked to try them.

A Return to Nishio

Recently I was given a short term assignment in Nishio City. It’s been a long while since I’ve last been there, so I was a bit surprised by a few of the changes. First off, the souvenir shop at the station closed down. I was looking forward to looking through their charming Nishio Green Tea […]

Gifu Station

My work often takes me through JR’s Gifu station as of late. I must admit that I find myself liking the layout and overall design of the station, even if I can’t really say the same for the rest of Gifu. The station features a huge courtyard and food court. The majority of the walkways […]
