EVERYDAY LIFE IN JAPAN - 6


These photos were taken during August and at the beginning of September, this is a last taste of summer 2009 (right now (1:45 AM) we are in a middle of a typhoon, heavy rain ... worse forecast is expected tomorrow morning just when we go to work...Gambarimasu! ).

I sorted the photos by themes this time :

Sometimes we can find some graffiti in Tokyo (in Yokohama the long wall dedicated to it has been painted white... end of an ere)

The iceman truck, there's an ice factory not far from the office. Kanji for ice is æ°· (kooli), and water is æ°´ (mizu), so easy to remember.

As well as eating :)


At Work :

Everyday Life in Japan


Building currently an in-house application to retrieve and display top-secret datas from the Ninja Tools and other services produced by the Samurai Factory.

Lunch time :

Everyday Life in Japan


I like to go out for lunch and have a walk in the neighborhood. This park is not too far, about 10mn, I like to rest for a little while there.

Everyday Life in Japan


It is nice to find some green in the heart of the city.

Random stuff :

Everyday Life in Japan


The Olympus-pen has good press everywhere. I have to say it is really nice, I especially like its vintage style.

Everyday Life in Japan


Lego sold in a conbini (convenience store) ! I almost compulsively bought a box as I was a hardcore Lego player as a kid.

Everyday Life in Japan


I saw this mac box and the week after an "old" flower iMac was at the same place, I guess someone in the neighborhood upgraded nicely!
It was kind of sad to see the flower one in the garbage, it's almost a piece of collection (for a geek I mean...)

And to finish with, Yokohama :

A little bit of China town

And the Yamate :

The old colonial neighborhood.

Very peaceful area.

Everyday Life in Japan


They have a nice Olympic outdoor pool over there, I promised myself to swim in it and then completely forgot about it; and now of course they closed it until next summer...

Thanks, typhoon has past. Now there is a clear blue sky over Tokyo. I managed to be only one hour late using a local train instead of my usual Shonan Shinjuku line which was stopped for all the morning...

I love your posts about Japan. 3 years back I got a chance to visit Toyotashi, and to work for Toyota. Those 45 days were amazing:)
I hope I will get another chance to visit Japan.
Enjoy...
Take care...
Prasanna

Thank you Prasanna. I hope your wish will become real, in French we say : "one who wants, can" [well something like this]. As for me I hope to visit India one day, it would be a real cultural shock I am sure!
