Near my place.
I like the lights on the Chinese restaurant, they look cheap but there’s just so many, it livens up this otherwise quiet crossroad.

While I was taking the pictures (it took me some time to get it right, and wait for the crossings’ lights to change), someone stopped to try and see what I was taking a picture of. The guy stayed there for maybe 2 or 3 whole minutes trying to figure it out until I was done and noticed him. I was surprised that someone would react like this in Tokyo, where interaction with complete strangers is rather limited, and it sort of confirms my feeling that a lot of japanese people are interested in photography.

Japanese Vocabulary and Kanji readings - Common electric appliances - aircon, rice cooker, etc.

Here’s a very useful link when you’re trying to figure out how to put your aircon on heating mode! It’s a life saver.

There’s also a list of toilet related vocabulary, which ought to be useful some day: http://www.neverland.to/kanji/list/toilet.html

And you’ll find pictures of common kanji found on rice cookers, aircon, or washing machine. This is great if you live here, but can also be useful if you don’t live in Japan but bought a japanese rice cooker.

Me vs Tokyo, the comeback

Hey there everyone!  

Well I’m back in Tokyo, after a 2 week trip to France for graduation, which actually turned into a 2 months wait for a visa, and there’s no gas (or hot water) in my apartment! and a letter saying that electricity will be cut as well if I don’t pay the bill.

Yay! I’m back! No, wait. I’m back but this time, to be honest, I don’t feel as hyped as I used to. I’m not sure how long I really want to be here and if it’s such a good idea, after all.

Well, it’s life, I guess. Thankfully I still have electricity (though it was supposed to be cut on the 18th?).

Anyway, there’s a huge pile of mail ads and bills waiting for me.

Later!
