Houses replacements in Japan

Posted 22 March 2019 | By | Categories: Houses | No Comments

Today, I’m going to talk about a peculiar habit that the Japanese have adopted regarding buying oneself a house. If you are from America or Europe, and plan to buy or have already bought a house, you might have – at best – redecorated it and fixed a few things here and there. In no […]

Yes, I could’ve simply made 4 parts, but before sorting all the photos (more than 150), I had expected that it’d be fine doing it in five times. So in the end, I selected 90 photos, and I really hope you had a good time watching them, although the picture quality is far from being […]

Osaka Cosplay Event 2019 (part 1/5)

Finally! Finallyyyyyy! I’ve been living in Japan for more than 5 years now, and I never took the time to go to a cosplay event (as a spectator, although I’d love to cosplay). So that time, I decided to grab my lovely コマジェ and head to Nanba (or Namba). And guess what, it was totally […]

I read yesterday on jeuxvideo.com that the newly released Star Wars Battlefront (that has received an average score of 7/10 from the worldwide press, which in the gamers’ mind sucks because, well, it’s Star Wars man!) sold very well in Japan for its first week (123.908 units). As if in Japan, the Jap’ didn’t know […]

It’s getting hotter and hotter, summer is coming (indeed you know nothing, John Snow!), so why not enjoy a day-trip to Wakayama City? At first we had planned to camp there, but thanks to our laziness we decided to do a round trip on the same day by scooter. A wise decision? Let’s figure out!

Today let’s talk about a chain we discovered a few weeks ago: どれでも100円パン Which means “Anything for 100円”. Let’s see what they have to offer us.

Inari Shrine, Toyonaka

Another shrine not far from home, quite small but still beautiful. The main torii is not made from wood (probably concrete) but was painted anyway. Photos taken with my phone, if you hadn’t guessed already :p

Harada Shrine, Toyonaka

Anywhere you go in Japan, you find temples/shrines. I’d say that most of them are very alike, but I like the style, the architecture and the peaceful feeling that all of this produces. Inner peace inner peace inner peace!
