Nice article! Coffee is getting more and more popular in Japan. If you're still looking for a place to get good coffee beans, check out this coffee map map.abccoffee.co. It ranks good coffee shops in Japan according to Instagram. You can find one near you.
Selamat Datang, Danny. I have to say, your blog and life journey really inspires me.
Ah yes, perfect place to be obliterated by diabetes and sweetness!
"Children, feed me your trash."
Books and books everywhere! My kind of heaven!
Such an interesting name. I think it's rather creative that someone chose "Mozart" as bakery name instead of musical one. Perhaps this is a reference to Austrian sweet delicacy.
Look at this strange bunny-like and bread-like creature. It looks so confused. I want ten of it.
Such a beautiful and memorable sign!
I play tons of instruments because of extracurricular activities throughout my school year, except high school. But if there's one instrument I still play and love, it would be guitar from my classic guitar lesson. I used to play ensemble in group, though, so playing by myself now feels a little lonely.
Cool shop front! It will be very easy for customer to remember and recognise the shop.
This reminds me of Nakajima from RAVE, LOL. Only less creepy.
Such a cute sign!
"I have no idea what im doing".
Japanese schools seems so nice :3
When will Eijiclock appears? :3 it will be awesome!
That looks so neat! It's interesting to know the process, in case one day I will get a job on thorough branding of a company, including for companies' vehicle.
Love the outfit!
A Kanata Smart Doll soon?
Wahhh these are such cute socks! I want at least 5 pairs of them but I know I won't probably use them because they are too cute... I wonder whether it's okay to wear them underneath a pair of serious-looking Oxford or something.
Who is this girl?
Hi, I've been buying coffee beans in Jupiter Coffee and Tea and until now, I wasn't able to pick up the term she uses everytime the personnel asks me if I want it ground (or I believe this is what she asks me). After I gave her a blank expression, she will asks me if for paper filter and I'll just answer yes and then she will proceed with the grinding of coffee beans. Would you mind telling me some of the terms possible for grind?
Thank you! and by the way, nice blog here and photos! :)
And I am one of those who is quite a coffee lover
is that an iplehouse YID erica?
Am I the only person who somehow always gets hungry whenever I see photos of Japanese street? My mind jumps to Japanese food already.
Looks like another great event :) Great stuff as always Danny! Can't wait to go to Japan one day and attend Culture Japan Night! http://kquotes.com/

She's so cute!! The characters are so creative, I love their designs specially Haruka's nwn!!
Somehow I'm getting interested in Mirai, most probably due to the artistic sense, and the drawings :D I'm really keen to know what is this type of art known as ? The drawing done by IKKYUU, where my comment tag on. (The deform style, using diatonic colouring, with thick black line.. is there a name for this type of art?)
Dear Danny Choo,
I am referring to your comment below: 'We also interview the man in charge of everything too. He said off camera that while they are rolling more of these out in Japan, they are looking into taking this technology overseas too.
If you are interested then let me know and I'll hook you up with him!'
I am a student from Germany, currently working on a consulting project for a medium sized German company and identifying potential new business opportunities. One would be to enter the underground bicycle parking system, as we think the company has some core competencies it could apply to this new business area. Also, the underground bicycle parking system is almost not available in Europe yet, although market interest might be there.
Thus, I would really like to know whether you could provide me with some additional information (as to whether plans for going overseas exist) or even provide the contact details of the man in charge?
Thank you in advance and warm regards from Germany!
Are there plans for 2nd grade kanji?
wait, this is real time?! the hand and the device on the hand is WRONG!
Can she plzzzzzz be made into a smart doll? I would buy like 500 of those...
Oh I'm so looking forward to moving to Japan! Question for anyone reading, do you know where I could find a directory of Kyudo dojos in or near Tokyo? When I look it up no listings are shown...

I have been reading your blog for about 2 years ago when i was looking for material to stimulate my Japanese learning. Had always like the language but some how when i reached lower intermediate I can't seem to get it to go further. After a while, I wasn't following your blog as I was caught up busy with studies for a MSc. and learning Japanese was put into a back burner. However , recently in one of my trip back to Malaysia, I saw Mirai @ Kinokuniya and also at the PLUS toll highway and started reading again.
What I would like to say is Thank You for sharing your life story here with such openness and sincerity. I find myself coming back to read your story when I am stuck with my own business or when I need to push a new idea.
I look forward to meet you one day either in Malaysia or if you are around Hong Kong.
yal blind this is the real cutie
Danny san, what your company adress ? Where I can find it ? We have something for you.
i feel really sad for all those people who died in that earthquake:,(
some one pls tell me she doesn't look like hatsune miku, if only she had turquois hair and a mike they would look exactly alike
I at first thought that they were actually siblings too but it turns out their not
This is my dream.......!!!!!!!!!!
I am currently a student
I've actually noticed Japan's buses are quite old fashioned. Hardly any low floor buses (buses without stairs that can raise up and down using some sort of hydraulics) and they're mostly small and cramped.
I suppose with such an advanced train network however, buses are barely necessary.
Thats too bad. I have a couple friends who blew over 5000 yen here trying to get a certain figure in those "surprise" boxes.
It always astounds me how expensive fruit is in Japan.
Only a small little section on the top floor for guys, every other floor is women's.
I'm so impressed by the Japanese people's resolve and conviction. Despite such a terrible incident they stay composed and have managed to rebuild incredibly fast.
I live in Canada and it seems like some people here are the complete opposite. Just yesterday the people of downtown Vancouver rioted over the Canucks losing the Stanley Cup finals. Blocks of retail districts broken into, cars flipped over and burnt, garbage and glass thrown everywhere, mass looting. All over a hockey game. I pray Vancouver doesn't get hit with an Earthquake(which it can and likely will someday) or the entire city may fall into anarchy.
I wish people everywhere could be as calm and collected as the Japanese.
I actually like Narita more than Haneda, not sure why, maybe just nostalgia given how all my flights into and out of Japan go through Narita. Haneda is definitely so much more convenient tho; whenever I fly to Hokkaido my flights always go out of Haneda and its a lot quicker to get to.
Exactly how it is where I am. People even push and shove as soon as the doors open; its the same thing with the bus.
When I was in Japan one of the first things I saw on my drive into Tokyo was people queuing for the bus at a bus stop. I loved it, where I'm from no one waits at the bus stop and as soon as the bus arrives everyone pushes and shoves their way to the door.
Awesome stuff, I haven't been to Toronto in over 5 years but I've been meaning to go for a visit!
Loved this place... bit overpriced tho
What anime is this?
