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/
pedo bear i'm warning u. u stay out of this one or else... motivational quotes
Thank you for sharing your experience so sincerely with us. Its been a great example and motivator for me. =)
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...
请问 我在中国 四川 成都 应该怎么购买 好想要来学习 可以联系我邮箱 谢谢 firstname.lastname@example.org
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.......!!!!!!!!!!
Everything otaku! Anime and figures especially. Just loves to listen to Hikara, loads up figure news and read anime reviews.
Good luck to all participants!
And good luck to Danny-kun! Hope to see the new and improved DannyChoo.com soon! ^^
I'm guessing this is the day that the figma Mirai will be released, Danny-kun? ^^
Anyways, can't go to Japan to attend the event. But I take it that I will enjoy reading your post on it soon enough!
I've read rave reviews of the D5000 and I'm impressed by the shots that you've taken, Danny! Maybe pumping up the ISO too high on the Haruhi shot was something not intended, but even by standards it looks good. You did mention that you didn't know how to use the camera correctly, yet the results are stunning.
The one thing I lack in my DSLR is the live view function. At first I'm okay with it, but a time grew I began to wonder why didn't I invest on one which has. Well, there's always next time...
Hope to see more Tokyo shots with the new cam! ^^
Kagamin is like an absolute must for both Miku and Kagami fans. Look at that O.O face...priceless.
Now here's the thing: is this more adorable than the Nendoroid? Hmm...
Nice... really looks good. Understandably she'll be more expensive due to the crafty design! Love it!
Thanks for the info on this! ^^;
What better way to intro yourself than doing the trademark Stormtropper Tokyo Dance! Love it!
By the way, is the word "lising" on purpose or a typo, Danny? ^^;
Nice... Veteran Otaku here! ^w^
I just don't understand why do parents treat their children this way. I mean, can't they work for themselves instead of doing silly and hideous things like this?
Lifetime in jail, in my opinion!
Our friendly neigbourhood tenrou has provided a how-to on making an account on Nico-Nico.
*digs through tenrou's News item*
here it is: http://www.dannychoo.com/detail/mac/eng/image/13844/Tenrou%27s+How+To+-+Nico+Nico+Douga.html
I bet tenrou would be really happy about this new implementation. He will jump for joy with the amount of Miku vids he provides week-in, week-out!
*awaits tenrou's next Miku batch, and first Weekly Miku with Nico Nico vids*
It's more like, Danny will appear as her father! ^^
Well, I've already commented on Twitter, but I guess I'll say it again here. Now with more space to write! ^^
Full feeds is always better is for those who don't want to wait for the site to download the info that they want to read. It's easier for the to just read what they want on a RSS Reader. But, like you pointed out, it's a two-edged thing. It deprives slightly on the traffic side.
Let's look at it this way: wouldn't it drive traffic to the site if the person reading would like to comment? I guess either way, for DannyChoo.com, comments are bound to be everywhere (especially when you have the Miku-lover tenrou around) ^^ !
This has got to be one of the worst bootleg ever!
The public buses that goes to the main city of Kuala Lumpur always gets packed in the afternoon. Less breathing space...
The train service here is a shame as well. Even though everyone is supposed to lineup to allow outgoing passengers to disembark first, ignorance is bliss among them. I remember getting pushed when I was supposed to go out at my destination and have to take another train back to where I wanted to go...which was 5 stations away! ToT
There are cases where it does get that crowded. I remember getting packed during after working hours (5-6pm) in KL Sentral, and during Independence Day!
Get well soon, Danny! A Malaysian nurse will arrive ther at precisely 6pm Malaysian time! >.<
Nice pics as usual, Danny! Great shoot. Meaning to ask you, do you use a macro lens for the shoots, or the standard lens (18-55mm)?
By the way, more news from Japan would be great! Most of us don't really go to Japan much, and figures are widely covered here by most of the members. Your take on Japan lifestyle is a joy to read!
you should see reviews on Gundam 00 and CLANNAD. all of them got terrible ratings...which really make me question their reviews.
not to mention Yuki, Shana and Ren's eyes too! XD
many eyes...many winking eyes...! No no...must...resist...
*clicks* ARGH....now I'm a 2D-Girl Fan!!!! Thanks to Danny for the conversion!
every morning, afternoon, evening and night!
still like to mix around my emoticons. but now, most of my friends use the Japanese emoticons. Well, it's getting popular imo!
was just starting to get interested in figures, so I Googled my resources. Then I bumped into here...
The rest, as they say, is history.
okay...so your dad is THE Jimmy Choo! Congrats, man! He made our country proud, and now you have made your name as well! You have fulfilled your wish and you're happy about it!
How I wish I want to be as successful as you. I'll look up to you as a role model that is successful outside in Japan. Maybe my future kids can write about you! ^^
Good luck on your future success, Danny! Hopefully, I get to meet you in person as well! ^^
Most of the stuff I watched/watching is like, popular. Code Geass and Macross are two of those.
Some others I watched based on storyline, like Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu and Kyaoran Kazoku Nikki!
Oh, CCCP for Windows, SMPlayer for Ubuntu!
