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.......!!!!!!!!!!

There aren´t enough titles for me.
Do Love Me Seriously! ~ Maji de Watashi ni Koishinasai!
I want a own Momoyo-sempai for Christmas :)
I have the 27" i5 Mac. It is indeed a beast :) But only with the 4GB. Otherwise I have the 2TB and 256GB SSD as well.
It´s also my first mac so it is a very new beginning for me. But using Adobe´s programs on it worked like a charm.
The Resolution and just about everything is wonderful. The only thing I´m not satisfied with was how much I payed for it XD
I just wish that Sega had done what they hinted at: releasing the third game for PS3.
I´ll get this game when it is released outside Japan. I got a bit tired of VC2 because it was just few missions that were repeated. Even at the same stages. Which got to me in the end. Will finish it sometime though.
I hope that this title has been improved on those areas.
I don´t rememeber how I got a hold of the book. But it was about Japan, about Ninjas and Samurais.
That got me hooked on these ways of living.
Later on it turned into being interested in the culture and buildings.
When I then understood that a favorite show of mine, Starzinger indeed was anime and not some cartoon then I was so happy.
So books, buildings and when I finally understood what anime was. That was the start of my interest for Japan.
Try to get time/money to have one of these meetings in Sweden and I will try to be there.
As it stands now I have no money to travel with. Otherwise it would have been a great experience.
Great to hear it. Finally I can get to see Mirai move on her own on the screen :)
And I do wonder, where do you get the energy to do all of this from? One important thing is that you do love what you´re doing. That gives an extra boost in performance. But this much? It´s amazing.
Looks good. A new show to look forward to is always great :)
As for my gaming history
And there we are. Here today. From a die hard Nintendo Fanboy to almost leaving Nintendo to rust. All in a single life time. Weird how things work out :)
A great room. I wonder how much all of that must have costed.
Nice images. Nice imacs.
A lot of nice looking food that I would love to sink my teeth into.
A great series of posts. Thanks for sharing all of this.
Keep up the good work.
It was better than I expected.
But not something new. It feelt like I had seen it before. And when thinking logically, yes I did see it before. When I was younger.
Old tale that has been done in many versions: Pocahontas :p
But still, great movie.
Part of the reason I love some of the jpegs I have is that the breasts don´t bounce around.
They look fine the way they are.
So no go with this software.
Hm, those wind breakers with K-on motives are godly. I want em :)
They look so nice to wear. Would create some nice looks if I were to wear it here.
Hm. What can I say?
It is thanks to the cat that it is possible to do such a thing. Maybe he went there on a good time where he was warm and wanted to be moved :p
Can´t agree with you more Danny. Lovely :)
Nice art Kurot!!
Good jobb Danny to encourage Kurot all the time as I do think we all agree: It´s just lovely :)
Funny you should ask about anisongs :)
After Macross 7 most of those songs are my favorite. I tend to find good songs whenever I watch anime.
Don´t say Lazy for one example. Holy Lonely Night as another.
Angel Voice from the Macross 7 OVA sends chills down my spine.
Nice footage. But I didn´t like May'n and Yoshiki Fukuyama singing together, they didn´t seem to match eachother if you ask me. It was live and all but their voices were either overwhelming the other or so. But I´m damaged from hearing the vocals from Mylene F Jenius :p Man that is a pretty voice. Never got around to look the singer up though...
Looked like you had fun there and that should be what matters the most.
Favorite production studio?
Shaft when they have a budget so it isn´t one colored screens half the time but they really do animate everything.
KyoAni when they are making a show move on instead of just looping the same things all over.
and I´m not sure how I pronounce GIF, I´d like to think it´s like gift without the "t" but I don´t know.
Make plans to come to Sweden sometime :p So I can see you live :)
I´d think and hope that I would find the money to go to the city you performed in and be there.
Wish I could go there. But no knowledge of the language and above all, unemployed and thus have no money :(
Keep the good work up trooper!
Now all that is left is the coloring. And I can´t wait to see what it will look like :)
Wow, simply wow.
I want to watch this.
Mirai #3 has such nice eyes and her expression there is just the one I find the very best.
Already own a DS and a DS lite. I don´t see any meaning in getting yet another DS. That has worse batterytime to boot.
I´d rather have them release the DS games so that they could be played on a normal TV instead of the small screen. But that defeats the whole purpose of the DS so :p
I want some motivation to pick up handheld gaming again. So many good games that I haven´t finished.
Do tell me if I missheard but it seemed as if they made some kind of joke with the TV-station being particular about disliking Win7 since it doesn´t work as it should there :p
I´d also like to say false drivers and thus fail. Mouse works just fine. Why they wanted to show of a touchscreen that large though is out of my mind. Show the system instead for focusing on some of the features.
I can´t wait for my copy of Win7 to get home so I can install it over this RC.
yes, I´ve got ikea stuff that brakes after a couple of years. Mainly lamps and lampholders.
But with the usage hours on them I can´t complain. I think I got the Billy bookshelf as well and it hasn´t been destroyed in 10 or so years so can´t complain there either :p
Sounds like you´ve had a nice week. I always get to jealous of your macs since I´m curious about the machine and software.
Lots of delicious looking food as well. I have to try and get to Japan just to eat.
Had I known that you would receive such extras for getting a Japanese version of Win7 I would probably have gotten a copy. But since I had already preordered the OS and I don´t have funds for buying two copies I had to stick with my choice.
