The Small Details

A manhole cover in Komaki City. This month, I’ve been helping at bit at a school there. Everyone’s been incredibly nice and the area is a couple of degrees cooler than Nagoya.

Back to Work

Today was my first day back to work, but I had a lot of trouble falling asleep last night. My sleep schedule got messed up due to staying up late, then sleeping in, during my vacation. Since it was too hot to go anywhere, I adopted a more nocturnal lifestyle. That lifestyle doesn’t exactly match well with my work schedule…

Bubbles

Also at Nagoya Tower’s exhibit were these pretty orbs, backed by a light and projector.

They projected additional images onto the nearby walls. Kids viewing the exhibit were especially fond of these orbs, as was myself.

I wonder if I could recreate a similar decoration for my room.

Maybe I should give it a try after buying some supplies at Daiso.

Skytopia by Naked

It’s been too hot to do much during the day, so I’ve taken to going out night. One of my recent outings was to the Nagoya TV Tower.

Every summer, they hold a projection mapping exhibit. This year it was done by a group called Naked. The theme was underwater.

For ¥1000 I could watch some shows, relax above Sakae, and even go on the outdoor deck. It was pretty crowded, but still really fun.

The exhibit will be nightly from 6:30 to closing, until mid-September. You can get there via the Sakura Dori Line’s Hisaya Oodori station or the Higashiya Line’s Sakae Station.

Ishidori Matsuri

My coworker, K, invited me to the Ishidori Festival this weekend. It’s a famous three day festival held in Kuwana.

The festival starts in the evening around seven o’clock and last until about four. At midnight, floats play drums, ring gongs, and yell cheers.
