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...

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.......!!!!!!!!!!
Really sorry I missed this event... (ToT)...
I have been a reader for over a year, but I guess I fall under the category "Taking a Break"
Congratulations on the CNN feature Danny! You inspire a lot of us!
Great photos, Danny! Gotta get myself one of those cool cams...
What a great Rick Roll! Your videos get better all the time, Danny!
I find it a little crazy how moms make their kids keep these super busy schedules: 5:30 English, run to piano class at 7:00, then after that cram school for high school entrance exams that won't take place for another 7 years, etc etc etc...
I did ballet and piano when I was a kid, but only one at a time, and only on Saturdays. I self-taught myself how to play the guitar when I was in high school, too. I can't do anything really well, though.
I like Oedo Onsen Monogatari in Odaiba. Been there a few times. It's an Edo Period-style bathhouse with probably the same amenities as Manyo...
Thanks for the link, Danny!
Just a few more days... I wish the Sakura season was longer...
Great pictures, Danny!
I also went on the weekend. Got a few more places I want to visit to take pictures of, too!
Looks really scary...
I heard from some people that some Japanese ISPs have been warning users who get caught downloading copyrighted material. Do you think they will in the future?
Maybe for fun I'd go, but with most of these fortunes, horoscopes and stuff, I just think: if it's good, I'll believe it, and if it isn't then the fortune teller was a fake or something... hehehehehe...
Was thinking that the MacBook Air should be my next purchase...
But then after a couple of months, something even better might come along... Should I wait? Decisions... decisions...
I thought there were more of us women readers/bloggers...
Great stats, though, Danny!
Osaka saw a lot of live action, I see. Too bad I haven't witnessed anything as exciting as thousands of police officers chasing after a single lone man, who I presume wasn't armed...
Astounding Photos of Miko... I'd never gotten the chance of taking a photo of one.
Looks like a pro video, Danny! Nice work!
Your dancing stuff keeps getting better. Though I have to admit I enjoyed the music and the dancing of the first two videos more.
I was using YahooBB for the longest time, then I switched to a small unheard of company because they offered internet + cable TV. Connection wasn't great so I went back to YahooBB. Great downloading speeds with YahooBB.
I think it's a good idea to sort of limit how much pocket money you give your kids. It makes them value things like earning their own, saving money, etc. Especially here in Japan where there are so many places and so many things to spend money on.
It'll be like a car alarm: when you want to piss off your neighbor, just kick his car's tire. This time, when you want to pull pranks on your neighbors, do a hide and seek with their cellphones.
Haven't been to Okinawa yet. I'd really want to go someday...
I think goya is called bitter gourd. I'm not a big fan of it, but it has cancer fighting properties. One of those wonder vegetables.
Sorry to hear about that Danny.
I myself had a very good childhood, but I still don't want to outgrow it. I often still play with little kids, play in the playground (especially the swing), watch cartoons (anime, too, of course), play pranks on "adults", and buy character stuff (I love Hello Kitty!).
While I'd never been bullied, I always stood up for kids who were. I always got back at those bullies, a lot of them are really dumb.
Nothing beats Anime Soundtracks, so even if I'd read the Manga, the Anime is still exciting!
Been in Japan 5 years but have never tried Fugu...
I like the raw beef + egg! Have it every chance I get.
Tokyo Hands... I could spend hours just going around and around and around it. So much stuff to see, buy and want. I've been to some branches out of Tokyo, too. It's where you go for anything.
