Currently stationed in Okinawa till 2013 as a USAF firefighter. Feelin' lucky to be here!
*sigh* I was REALLY hoping to eat there when I was truckin' around Tokyo last summer but the wait was 6 HOURS! It was even during Obon when most people would be going home for the holiday. Oh well, I took pics from the *other* side of the glass case instead. lol!
So, note to those who want to go, make sure to plan ahead for time waiting and if you want to know what themes they will be having at the cafe, go here: http://www.gstjcafe.jp/ to see. Looks like SAO cafe now with the idolm@ster theme coming up afterwards.
No...seriously, come visit, it is great here. You too can get pics like this (yeah it was kinda hazy the other day >.<): http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v456/blackthunder425/HotelontheBeach.jpg
You should come back Danny! The rainy season is just ending now and the weather is turning better...I hope! ^_^
Did you ever get the chance to try the goya? (or bitter melon?) It is a bit rough for some people but goya chanpuru is amazing and they even sell it at Hotto Motto during the summer months. =)
These pictures have inspired me to use my Nex more and get some awesome shots when the weather gets nice, kind of like this one: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v456/blackthunder425/Sunsett.jpg
Wait, what?!? They are available on Amazon Japan?
yay, They should be here in a few days.
Danny, so I don't want any more packs than this but would you want a pic of them maybe playing in the sand on a beach in Okinawa for your show? Hopefully the weather will be nice again by the time the cards get here. Amazingly 27C and sunny here now but rain is on the way again. (dang rainy season!) What's the due date for all of this?
Yup, got Momiji Inubashiri protecting mine with her sword!
NOM NOM NOM
Hey Danny, where can you get this? I'm down in Okinawa so we may have different food stores...
"STOP!" "Hammer time!"
Amazon Japan! Great prices, fast shipping (2 days! owo!) and sometimes some amazing deals too. I mean BRS: The Game, LE for only 3,300 yen? Sold. =)
I would have to say, after living in Okinawa for almost 2 and a half years now, it is most definitely the people that I love about Japan. They are more than willing to help me out when I am in need (even with my broken Japanese skills), take great care with servicing customers, treat others with respect, and, at least in Oki, are generally more easy-going. (Maybe it's and island thing.)
Another thing that gets me is the absolute honesty and honor. I accidentally left the keys to my car hanging out of the trunk lock at my apartment complex for entire day (unbeknownst to me of course) before a nice man brought the keys up to my apartment for me. Car was fine and nothing stolen (of course!).
Also, the security when it comes to people's belongings is amazing. I am currently in the states and had forgotten about my pre-order of Mugen Souls from WonderGoo. Sadly it has shipped and the shipping company is not very willing to let a Japanese co-worker of mine pick it up from the distribution center for me. They say I have to be the one to get it in person. I this was the states, FedEx or UPS would have tossed the package at my front door and left without a second thought!
(It actually happened when I got a new credit card shipped to me while in the states and the letter was supposed to be signed by me in order to be delivered. Nope, came to the door and there was the letter, just sitting there with a credit card in it!)
WHEW! Long wall of text but if you couldn't tell, I really do enjoy Japan (well at least Oki ^_^) and highly recommend people to come visit! The people are great, the culture rich, and the food is A-MAZE-ING!
I will be a very sad panda when I have to leave =(
That elusive oppai mouse pad again....
LOL, no mention of the oppai mouse pads??
What? No Mention of the overflowing endowments here? So picky. =p
Aww no LE with a nendoroid petit? *pouts*
*sigh* Being on leave in the states really makes me miss all of the vending machines back in Japan. I mean, I think I was living off of canned coffee from vending machines!
Ooo, spendy set! I've noticed that burger places are usually high priced though ^_^
Of course! This has to happen while I am back in the States on leave and away from my collection. *sigh* Well at least I'll have my Nex-7 for next year's eh? *pouts*
Yay! More fashion posts! Not to be nit-picky Danny but could you get some more shots of guys too? I am trying to get a better idea of male fashion sense in Japan. Why? Let's just say I'm tired of being "that" baka gaijin ^_^
Good 'ol Japanese film guys. I bet this is for a variety show ^_^
Looks pretty tasty! Here in Okinawa, it is traditional to eat authentic Okinawan soba with pork spareribs, fish cake, green onions, pickled ginger, egg, topped off with pepper infused sake and spices. I'll try to take a picture next time we make some. It is OMG amazingly tasty and perfect for the cold weather!
Mmmm chicken! Nom nom nom. And I can attest to Danny's story, OMG! the KFC's around here were packed! And it's expensive too!
I would really really really like for some more fashion posts. And actually some real ones would be great too! Being single and living in Okinawa, I would welcome any hints and tips to dress to impress the ladies. I mean, wearing my fox-ear hat around town is probably a fashion faux pas signifying something... ^_^
