The Big Gear

Outside a factory in my neighborhood, theres this tiny park with a man-made pond and a giant rusted gear. I have no idea what the factory makes, but it sure looks cool. It isn’t open to the pubic so I had to jam my hands, and my phone, between spokes in the fence to get […]

No-Go Zone

Due to the current State of Emergency through out major parts of Japan, a lot of public seating has been closed to keep people from gathering. This picture is from a recent trip to Nagoya, on the day I recieved my second Covid vaccine.

Sunset over Gifu

Above

Started working at a new school at the start of August. The interesting point of this particular location is the view. My favourite is the restaurant around the corner. It serves the best grilled mackerel. Oh, and the overhead higway bridge that shakes the school from time to time.

Downpour

Last weekend was a rainy one. I stayed mostly at home, cleaning and preparing for friends to come over next Sunday. I did venture out to hit up the local Nitori for seat cushions though. It was an interesting experience.

Gifu Station

My work often takes me through JR’s Gifu station as of late. I must admit that I find myself liking the layout and overall design of the station, even if I can’t really say the same for the rest of Gifu. The station features a huge courtyard and food court. The majority of the walkways […]

Nagoya Dusk

High above Nagoya Meieki, we look down and dream of warmer days. Winter is half over, but spring can’t come fast enough.
