Oasis 21 at Night

The weather has been wonderful, so I’ve been trying to take advantage of it. After almost a year in the center of Nagoya, I’m being transferred to Anjo City. While it won’t be impossible to come to the big city, it will take much longer and be a bit more expensive.

During my walks, I found myself at Oasis 21 in Sakae. It’s a shopping area made of about four levels. These pictures were taken from the top level, which sports a reflecting pool/fountain and plexi-glass floor.

It’s also a pretty convenient location from where I am living now. It’s only a handful of stops away on the Sakuradori Line. I think I may visit this place from time to time, after my move.

Oasis 21

 

oasis21_01Oasis 21 is an interesting spot in the Sakae area of Nagoya. It’s surrounded by shopping, restaurants, and parks. This is the Spaceship-Aqua portion of the structure. It’s completely free to visit and very close to the Nagoya TV Tower (another famous Nagoya landmark).

I would really love to snag an office job, somewhere in the city, after my contract with the school ends. Something with a lot of paperwork– a cubicle would be nice– and little customer service work. I want to be a pencil pusher. That’s my current dream.

I want to make a decent salary and to use it to pay off my student loans quickly. I can’t wait to see the end of those things. I also want to save some money to move out and/or overseas. I want to be able to buy food whenever I want.

I’m going to start slinging resumes faster that a McDonalds employee at supper time. I’m going to get my name out there. Watch out world!

Brother and I have decided that we should visit the city much more often. We’re thinking that we’ll visit at least once a month, now that we’ve found easier (cheaper) methods of travel. In the past, a trip to Manhattan was a treat, a special occasion, as the train fare would be around $30 for the pair of us. Now, we figured out a route that takes roughly an hour, is scenic, and costs about $6/person. The savings allow for us to do more than buy lunch in the city. We can go sing karaoke or go shopping. We even plan to rent bikes in Central Park at some point. This summer should prove interesting.
