After Hours

Since the weather has gotten so much nicer (less rain, more cool evenings), I’ve been spending a lot of time outside after work. Not many people are out and about, though there are some teens and old men who like to hang out at the park (completely harmless) and a few people who like to mill around the 7-11 five minutes away from my place. Around the station there are tons of pubs and restaurants and the atmosphere is really loud. After talking and entertaining all day, that’s the last thing I want. I much rather watch some teens set off fireworks at the park, while eating some cheap conbini snacks.

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.
