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.
There’s a bike rack outside my office, where people fight over parking spaces.
I really do love living in Nagoya.
I’m on a long distance assignment this week in Fujieda, Shizuoka. This morning (my time), I rode the bullet train from Nagoya to Kakegawa (Shizuoka) and then a local train to Fujieda.
I’m staying in a hotel until Saturday morning. Then, after classes, I’ll ride thr bullet train back to Nagoya.
So, I took the JLPT yesterday. It was given at an university not too far from Fujigaoka station. I took the subway and then a bus.
The test was about four hours long, though we did get breaks between sections. First was a short vocabulary section. Then there was grammar and reading comprehension. Last was the listening portion, which was the hardest.
I hope I passed.
