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.

A Train through Mie

It’s been so hot lately that it’s been a bit dangerous to go outside. Still, go outside I sorta did.

Being stuck in the wake up- work- go to bed loop had me quite down despite my best efforts. So, I decided to go on a daytrip.

After stopping at the doctor’s, I jumped on the Kintetsu train headed for Kashikojima–the last stop on the line I took to get to Yokkaichi everyday.

I bought a special limited express ticket, but it would still take about three hours to arrive there.

During the ride, I messaged two of my friends fron the states.

I sent them pics from my trip and caught up on current events. They were both very kind in humoring me.

There were many things to see, both ways. Mostly, there were huge fields of green.

Mie is a farming prefecture, so there were miles upon miles of farms.

There was also a peninsula that lead to the Pacific Ocean.

There were three stops in particular where you could see the water.

While riding the train, I ate a lot of snacks. Mostly dried fruit.

If you have the time and the funds, I would suggest trying it.
