I was at Ueno park one evening with a couple of friends. We walked by the pond when we saw loads of people standing in the area around the Shinobazunoike Bentendo. We thought there might be some event or something otherwise interesting. However, once we arrived we realized that everyone at this location was playing Pokemon Go. We took a couple of pictures and then started playing ourselves.
I found lots of interesting information here.Great work
Thanks for the share loved reading the article, please do share more like this wiht us .

I know also that in Japan a person who sticks out is punished by others. It’s really strange. But Japan’s education system not only about not expressing your own opinion. Here is some more information about education in Japan https://eduessayhelper.org/blog/education-japan.html
Congrats, Danny! Just wanted to let you know I enjoyed reading your post "How Discovering Japan Changed My Life". It's a long post but extremely inspiring to those who want to learn Japanese and/or move to Japan.
You ask us to share what other Japan blogs we visit. So here goes: There's a slice-of-life blog I like called Japan Australia (whom I featured in http://japaneseup.com/best-japan-blogs/ alongside 25 other Japan bloggers). This is a blog containing useful tips and advice for living in or travelling to Japan.
The blogger is an Aussie who lives and works in Gifu and he has been in Japan for over 12 years. On his blog, he shares his experiences about Japan and highlights the lighter aspects of the country.
These are best for me forever. Thanks in advance
all those figurines.....
Mr. Danny, please try to make "faceplate expressions" for the smartdoll. Then assort them in packs of
1. Action Pack
2. Angry Pack
3. Suprise Pack
4. Sadness Pack...any
....it might work....
Hope to start seeing some production pics soon!
Haha ye, got myself into the very same situation of being unable to find any job that has to do with my hobbies. So even if there're some benefits making a life of mine easier, it still doesn't make me happy or more close to the dreamed target. I wonder though, how is it going in 2016, still sitting in beautiful Singapore?
Still...I was glad to find this particular post. Coz even if my current job offers me free drinks, toilet & internet only I'm able (due to being top worker in the company) to learn languages/get to know new stuff as the results produced are enough to allow me to work 1h only and do whatever I want:D
Only one drawback is the paycheck & my ambitions -here most of $$$ is spent on food+housing+little to put aside and my ambitions are little, for the thing I do is already mastered. So I'm bored not to mention I got better education than this.
But hey! life is about progress so gotta gain more knowledge and search a way to transfer to Japan (if failed first to Korea/Canada/Taiwan or Singapure).
Good luck for everyone!
This is why we love Asia :)

Congratulations Danny, can't wait to see the new line.
Now, when you say "worldwide"...
Congrats. at some point I'd love for you to make some for Strike Witches.
can't say why they would say no. that's licensing fees for them.
Congrats! Cant wait to see what you do with it.
SMART TANKS WITH BUILT IN MP3 PLAYERS THAT PLAY RIDE OF THE VALKYRIES
any news about price and when / where to preorder
That is awesome, congratulations!
Does Miho SmartDoll come with a tank? I'll totally buy it if you release all 5 Team Anko girls + Panzer Tank (preferably remote controlled like a drone) :)
Omg. Make a smart doll tank!
Now let's wait for Smart Dolls of Darjeeling, Nonna, and Mika :D
Sweet. Now if only I can have Mako sit in my lap whenever I drive my BX-2...
Ernest Welp here's your chance
does it come with Pz IV?
I'm glad to hear this news! How about Miho's sister Maho? Will it become a smartdoll in the future too?
Would you be making a 1/3 Tanks as well?
Just to let you know that my application for the worldwide license of Girls Und Panzer Smart Dolls came through.
So beautiful ! I NEED IT !!
Currently saving for Harmony, she is so beautiful!
We share the same passion! Though I must admit that you're an amazing person because most of your knowledge are self-taught! I envy and admire your ability and passion at the same time. I do hope and want to be like you one day too, being able to live and work in Japan. I've always wanted to learn Japanese but laziness strikes me all the time. How I wish I were half as hardworking and passionate as you are D:
Any chance for the XL bust shape to come in medium? It look awsome and pretty natural but sooo big. lol.
man, this figure looks awesome!
Isn't she a cutie

Wow... thanks for the link Danny. I guess I couldn't be more embarrassed that my site is STILL DOWN. I'm seriously thinking about crying right now.
If you don't mind rerouting the link to my yt youtube.com/cruxay for now that would be appreciated. Wowwowowow -_-
Nice post Danny! =)
Thanks for the hotel tip in Shibuya. Gunna head over and take some overviewssss.
Yeah what is up with the no smiling in pics? They are too serious about that haha. I wonder if you could give the peace sign... maybe that would be okay? hahaha
Those road signs are gunna come in handy for me. I got my international license just incase, but I've been too chicken to actually rent a car yet for an outing. I've never even touched a right-hand drive!
Been patiently waiting for that email Danny! I hope I haven't been scratched from the list. *cries
I find it very rude and almost sad that people these days have lost the ability to sit still and read something for 5 minutes. It is the same with my youtube videos, I always put links for what songs I used in the side bar. But it never fails to amazing me with the amount of comments and msgs asking me the name of the songs I used. I recently had someone hound me through EMAIL, literally begging me for the song used in my last video. If people would open their eyes a little more (and their brains) they could save so much time and effort.
To me, pictures have no meaning without a story to go along with them. Or at the very least a little humorous comment. I say keep doing what you are doing. It will be worth it to those who actually prefer to use their heads, like yourself. I just skipped the last set of pictures in this post cause they had no text.
Was thinking about heading over to Harajuku yesterday to check this out. But exam today told me no. =) Woulda been funny to run into you again, only in your trooper getup this time. haha.
Thanks for the great post again. I'm sure Harry is listening, he just needs a push & a shove to get things rolling. And he definitely needs to break the comfort zone. I'm sure it's something he tells himself all the time, but execution is always the issue with him. He needs to build up his confidence a bit more by acting on his ideas more often and keeping busy, rather than letting them sit around in his head until they've eventually faded away.
Also, thanks for the add to the list ;).
Danny, always loving these installments... keep em comin! Also, congrats on the TV gig. I'm excited to see how its gunna turn out.
Only been to Yokohama once, but never saw it like that. Definitely hitting it up at night again in the near future. Also, nice words about being in the zone. I also find having a very rhythmic pattern extremely helpful to being in the zone. Once you get out of that pattern (ie: summer time for students) it is hard to get back into any sort of productive mode.
oh... and you are mentioned in it, if that helps my chances at all haha.
Very inspirational opening words there Danny. I just recently made a youtube video on a similar concept. I wonder if you'd host it? hehe =D http://www.youtube.com/cruxay
Wow! Tokyo Storm Trooper is internationally known now! haha congrats Danny.
Been using my macbook (black) for about a year and a half now with no problems (other than the screen dimming). I've heard lots about batteries and other junk crapping out on my friends macbooks, and I'm actually starting to get worried. Might have to buy an apple care package soon. I'm just concerned about whether or not it works in different countries.
I've read this article before, but now that I'm a member I can comment on it.
The information here is priceless, and should be treated as such. It takes many people years to figure this out on their own (if at all), and very many people aren't as capable as you as laying out ALL the potential options so that everyone can find something for themselves. This website really is an resource/hub to those wanting to pursue life in Japan.
Wow! Kawagoe looks beautiful! Next time I'm in Tokyo I'll check it out.
btw, my thumbs are now being created! sorry! It was my fault after all Danny! >.
Definitely not signing with AU when I get over there. I was planning on Softbank from the start, mainly because I like their phones, annnnd their adverts too haha.
Was also thinking of docomo.
Woah woah easy there "especially by black people".
My friend, if you watched the video until the end like Danny suggested, you would've understood this was a joke. Tokyocomedy.com takes lots of controversial topics and makes light of them. I've known people who have been refused jobs in Japan because of their skin color (and yes, they were black people).
Please be more mindful of your words in future comments.
Probably gunna check this out.
Uhooooh! gotta ease up on the ero-postage I think.
Seems to be a lot more in terms of male deodorant these days though. Gatsby has a whole line of male deodorant spray out now that you can find almost anywhere.
Now its just the task of getting Japanese males to apply the damn stuff!
aaaaaaaah! Saizeriya!!! I miss that place! so ridiculously cheap! and the hyaku-en baa is just monsterrrr!
unlimited coffee, and carbonated beverages for 100yen FTW!
Ikea is the booomb! half the stuff in my room is from Ikea.
I'm a black mac owner myself (for over a year now) and have been wondering if it was only my screen that was dimming to such an extent. My full brightness is only about a half brightness setting on my friend's newer (white) macbooks.
Anyone else having these problems? I'm wondering if I should take it in, and how much it would cost to fix =/
