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 :)

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!
Love Japanese anime and of coz Gundam, have some little collection of GunPla.
Love women and red wine...
Agree with your points.... hope DC can suggest the same to the Japan Anime Industry - and hopefully they will at least open their eye and ears for new perspective to save the industry...
Make good anime (like Lucky Star/K-On/Sengoku Basara/Honey & Clover to name a few) and provide the DVD at a reasonable price in accordance to the current economy situation. For example in several countries within South East Asia, a typical 20 something episode original box set anime dvd would cost about around or within SGD 30.00 (about 2,000 yen), some are slightly cheaper, maybe around SGD 20.00 (1,300 yen). A typical 50 episodes of Gundam anime can reach up to or around SGD 50.00 (3,300 yen).
I personally feel that price is quite fair, but maybe to some other people within this region, that can still be expensive, then again, the price in Japan is extremely ridiculous.
Blu-Ray DVD? I don't know coz I don't have the Blu-Ray DVD Player and from what I gathered, the Blu-Ray DVD titles can be expensive.
USD 200 for anime Blu-Ray DVD? forget it, I simply can't afford it and many others South East Asian households might share the same view as me.
The reason why piracy can strive is simply because of price factor. Why don't the Japanese and in fact even those Hollywood company think about lowering the price instead of try to impose the "blood sucking" price on consumers.
With such statement, it's not that I love and support piracy and unauthorized distribution thru internet and all those uploading and downloading stuff, but my point is, we can help to "curb" piracy and these illegal downloads by encouraging people to buy the original products with affordable price.
The anime company or the distributor can go for maximum volume with lower price rather than aiming for premium price coz this is also one of the factor that caused the DVD stock not moving from the shop shelves and at the same time the internet and illegal DVD copy appear from where ever and further ruining the business module.
I don't do downloading of anime from internet but many of my friends did it. I do buy pirated anime DVD from somewhere for the sake of evaluating the anime/story - if it's good, I will buy the original for sure - usually the original box set will arrive a bit later, but that is OK for me.
So, the bottom line is the price.... I know the anime company/studio/producer/distributor do not like to lower the price, but if you really want to sell fast and "reduce" piracy stuff, I guess that is the only way.
Not everybody earn USD 10,000 per week or per month and live in luxury and able to buy all those branded products - certainly not after 2008 global economic crisis. Japanese anime industry should open their eyes and consider this factor rather than keep talking about pride and status and maximum profit and live in "anime illusion" where everything will be OK.
Danny, tell those Japanese producers, the quality level of anime nowadays seems to be sucks and not like what it used to be...
Sure the graphics and character design is getting better for some.... but the plot or the story line is rather crappy..... too much "moe moe and fans service stuff"...
Out of many new anime released, only a few that I consider worth to buy their DVD....
No offense... we want great stuff not popular but lousy stuff...
Danny, I like the additional video screen shot u provide here... brilliant idea...
The Tudors and The Windsors.... LOL

Panasonic ROCK!!!!!!! - owner of Panasonic LX3 and Fujifilm HS10....
It's normal and acceptable to lie to your spouse about your adultery with others... but lie to yourself is not good and will make you crazy...LOL
Cool - and she is using Panasonic camera.... LOL.. awesome advertisement stuff
Danny Choo, being a reader of DC for several years now, I can understand a little bit about your history and your dad, from Malaysia to England and then split to Malaysia and Japan..... nonetheless, family reunion is always wonderful... hope you and your father (and the rest of your family members) will have more happy times together as a family.... all the best....
Yup, interesting point of view.....
Panasonic collaborate with Leica and seems to be doing well nowadays with many of their camera models become very popular and well received in the consumer market. I didn't say Sony is terrible it's just I don't fancy them, after using several camera with different models and brands, I would say Panasonic and Canon is my firm favorite. Just a personal taste when it comes to camera.
Don't mean to take away that Sony and Kodak and Casio as the pioneer of digicam...
Panasonic and Olympus start the new format of Micro 4/3 mirror-less compact camera promising DSLR like image quality - they are the first, but now, Sony have this much better and more powerful new beast "The NEX-5" - many reviews in the net said that this camera is damn good and as you said they're all now neck and neck... couldn't agree more....
Its a Sony.... if it's home entertainment system, I would like it... if it's camera, I don't really fancy Sony but from what I read in the internet, this NEX-5 is one hell of a great camera - probably the best from Sony so far.... Canon and Panasonic are still my firm favorite though I end up using Fujifilm HS10 now...
Event if I want to joint this giveaway - and in case if I win - I wont be able to receive this item... the problem is the Custom Department in our country have such a strict rules for naked/semi-naked figurines... so in this case, they wil confiscate this figure as it is labeled as "illegal item that content nudity/pornography elements".... sigh....
By the way I don't do any of this martial arts thingy... I have low stamina due to watching too much Japanese Adult Videos.... LOL....
I think she can be pretty good and strong on bed as well.... hehehehehehe... (hentai mode)...
I bought primarily from HLJ and AmiAmi and sometimes Hobby Search.
HLJ sales at FULL PRICE but their packaging/boxing is extremely excellent. You will have economical shipping charges.
AmiAmi, always offer DISCOUNTS on their price... but the shipping charges will kill you... they use a big box that can fit 3 units of large Gunpla 1/100 MG kits when you just bought a mere 2 units of Figma or Revoltech? Imagine if you order more stuff... the shipping charges will dilute all the discounts they gave you as they use big box unnecessarily - oh, they put lots of papers on the side of the box to "protect" your items.....
I think both online shop are equally good but my favorite is HLJ for sure while AmiAmi is my 2nd choice... but I wont buy many stuff in 1 shipment if its from AmiAmi....
Danny, since you said Figma Seto Sun is the closest to Figma Mirai, I would suggest that the seiyu for the Mirai-chans first game appearance is Haruka Momoi, the seiyu of Seto Sun.
Haruka Momoi is a talented seiyu, singer and song writer, maybe she can create some great them songs for Mirai chan and the rest as well.....
When I first watch a Japanese porn movie at the age of 7 I think - yes, 7 years old... my interest towards Japanese gals ignited.... from there onwards, I discover TV anime and many other anime - lot's of anime (including hentai)... and from there come the GunPla, Japanese foods, Figma and what ever... my admiration of Japanese Adult Video never seems to disappear though... from VHS video tape in the 80's to the DVD format now.... I still love them all... hahahahahahahahaha.....
The only "classic toys" I still have is the Star Wars figures from 1997 by Kenners - still in packaging in mint condition.....
Nice article..... I would love to visit this place if I have the chance to visit Japan next time... I now use superzoom digicam Fujifilm HS10 and I can zoom from 24mm to 720mm with the ens of that camera, it cannot match DSLR quality but I'm quite happy with it.
As Christian, I always thankful when ever I have the chance to still wake up in the morning - what ever day it is, it's good to be alive - be it Monday or Sunday... it's good to be alive... though I personally don't mind to be a vampire and leave forever like those characters in Underworld movie....
He got Dendrobium among other things... he is rich...
Yum yum.... mini skirts and legs... love to see them... kind of "TURN ON" my system... hehehehe
