Almost a year has past since I posted something! But a lot has happened, so let’s celebrate with a fresh made video (made with my new sony camcorder).


Or: A 3 min video about a crossing, some more crossings, and some glimpses of the latest Japanese girl fashion.

Yes, another late entry finally found its way here. This postcard is from the huge street crossing in Shibuya, Tokyo. Well worth a visit.
Wait. Wait. Okey, you may watch the video!

Long time no see! I’ll explain why in my next post. Until then enjoy this video shot in Tokyo October 30th.
It’s from a part located in Asakusa that’s like Japan in Japan, with a lot of tourists. We didn’t intend to ride the touristic rickshaw, but when asked we could bargain down the price a lot and got double the time. We also got to know alot about the area from the guide who pulled the rickshaw (all forgotten now), so well worth a ride if you’re going here.


I bought a Nikon D5100 yesterday and tried it out at a trip to Tokyo Tower. The camera (Nikon D5100) has received a lot of criticism for its video functionality compare to its competitor, the Canon EOS 600D (or EOS Kiss X5 here in Japan), but I tried them out a lot before I decided and am VERY pleased so far!
Lens is my old 50mm 1.4G. No tweaks has been made to the video material.

Entry Fee to Tokyo Tower is 600-820 yen for adults. If you want a similar view for free, head of to Tokyo Metropolitan Government building.


Good morning.
For the past month I haven’t needed to set the alarm :)
The video is shot from my current apartment, (found for example at Fukuoka Holiday apartments).
Be aware that there is a construction going on here if you’re sensitive to sounds.
I don’t mind:)


Anyone that can sing without killing someone could have put on a costume and win this competition in

Fresh fish has got a new meaning for me. If you also wanna try it, head down to the nearest pond and grab a fish. Slice it and eat. Simple and good!


The main locations are:
Happy Cock Bar, Fukuoka Zoo, Universal Studios Japan (Osaka), Hard Rock Café (Osaka) and Kyoto.
I’ll post pictures later. Just have to sleep a sec…


Had to check out that everything still was OK. Linus and Jocke, see you there next time!
Don’t forget to bring hand fans.


I don’t think that it’s fun watching people trying to hit a ball every five minutes, but its big in Japan and I got a free ticket so I went to check it out.
I’m glad that I did it, but I don’t think I will do it again… common hit that ball!


An evening at the community based firework show in Ogori Athletic Park where over 8000 fireworks were bursts.

Som jag nämnde i inlägget Om Fukuoka så finns här en (normal) klubb med det roliga namnet Happy Cock.
Jag kommer återvända. (more…)


First visit to a nightclub in Japan. Boys and girls, welcome to Fubar. (more…)


One day in Tokyo I stumbled into an aquarium.

Jag förbehåller mig rätten att när som helst ändra uppfattning om vad som helst: (more…)

Den obligatoriska bento-lådan och jag sitter nu i formpressade plastytor som rusar fram i 300 km/h mot Fukuoka. Det är dyrare än flyget, men det slipper jag gärna på ett tag och ser hellre Japans landskap på vägen. (more…)
