Photos taken throughout today on the Sony NEX-5N which just came back from repairs. Wee too much going on of late with most of my time taken up with TV production of Culture Japan. Season 2 comes to an end December 24 - hope I can make it to the new year alive ^^;

Today I test out the NEX-5N, clean up the office preparing for tomorrows filming and sort out a load of mails before heading to the AmiAmi HQ with a load of Mirai Mousepads which will go on sale worldwide on this Monday. Will also be on sale at Hobby Search, Kid Nemo and KKnM.

Had meeting with the folks at AmiAmi regarding the filming at Asakusa on December 5th and then its off to dindins. After that its back to base to prep the website for this evenings broadcast of Culture Japan. Now I'm watching Fate Zero on Tokyo MX TV while writing this up and as soon as this is posted I'll finish prepping for tomorrows filming in the office.

I usually remember to censor that mousepad.

the 18 - 55mm lens also gives a nice bokeh.

Menu is difficult for even Japanese folks to read!
Have you ordered anything odd at a Japanese restaurant before that you didn't like because you wasn't sure what you was ordering?

This is Otooshi [お通し] - its an excuse to charge you a seat charge and will be added to your bill - its brought to you automatically when you sit down. Tastes nice in most cases but in some cases tastes' like...
