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/

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 email@example.com
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'm a 22 year old female, living with my super awesome husband Matt...I am obsessed with figures and manga (in Japanese) mostly. I am really into collecting and displaying my stuff.
My rice cooker plays twinkle twinkle little start when I start cooking the rice.
I like Yui best, my husband says I am just like her haha.
ORE NO UTA O KIKEEEEEEEE!!!!!
Love Ikea and I love Daiso, I am glad there is one nearby me :3
There is no new one...the 3.0 OS will be downloadable for everybody.
I can't wait! I love my iPhone :3
Doesn't seem like she would be good as a runway model, not very graceful. She basically walks like a Asimo but she has a cute face and boobs...
We are more of a Mac family. We have a MacBook, iMac, iPod Touch and an iPhone. I do have a PC but only because some things are PC only >.<
I am surprised you got racist comments in SoCal...x_X
I'm pretty sure that one is Tama-nee. She came out in DD form a few years ago..
Well I hope it does well because my husband works for Namco's Cell Phone division lol. Go time crisis!
Yeah here the hospital will take you, but you will be in debt for the rest of your life if you don't have insurance ^^;.
I also have a Corolla, 2009 Corolla S to be exact ;)
One would think the jingle would be even more embarrassing alerting people you are peeing.
My husband and I want one, an ero one xD. Don't have any yet though.
My husband doesn't make a huge amount and went to community college and it couldn't matter less to me.
(it's a joke)
What I mean is, if your mom signs for the package and doesn't open it she will see the Oppai Ippai Set hiragana but not the actual box for the item. Usually the shipping box would be unremarkable.
Tony Taka one w/ Bananna, it's really sexy! If it's not too expensive I will preorder x_X
The problem is the shipping box says.
This reminds me of just about the stupidest thing I've heard.
Ok now bear with me, because this is related but not to statues...but to breasts and what people consider "modesty".
I'd heard that people shouldn't breastfeed their baby boy (I am not even talking about the slippery slope of breastfeeding in public...this is just in general) because he should NEVER SEE BARE BREASTS. Breasts are made for the purpose of nourishing a child >.< BOY OR GIRL. They are a natural part of the human body and IMO not disgusting. I think that that is along the same lines...people are really touchy about breasts.
Sorry about the lengthy rant, but I'm expecting a son in May so I am extra touchy about that subject ^^;;
PS. I also think of figures as little works of art. There is definitely a double standard.
My husband mostly thinks it's funny I think, and he likes the sexy figures etc. that I like :).
