The view from the Nagoya TV Tower. I’m noticing that I enjoy being at the top of really tall buildings.
My usual morning view.
Recently I visited a tea house in Kanayama. My assignment there had just ended (I’m a substitute teacher, so I go wherever I’m needed) and I figured why not visit the shop I pass everytime I work at that school. It was a hot day and there was a sign out front advertising shaved ices. […]
This is another picture taken while at Atsuta Shrine.
I recently tried going to Inuyama, to see a famous castle there. It’s said that the castle is about 500 years old, so liking old stuff, I jumped on a train and went. However, I didn’t factor the time it takes to get from Nagoya to Inuyama (Gifu, I think?), so it was closed by […]

I remember a wall in my great grandmother’s kitchen being made of this sort of tile. When I was little, I thought they were the most epic thing ever.
Last weekend I took a trip to the city just for the hell of it. I have an unlimited Metrocard this month, so I figured, why not? With it, I can take buses and the subway as much as I like, without having to worry about my budget. Because of that, I decided I would […]
