deja vu: osaka edition

Juni 30, 2008

yeah g. you definitively were right… i found another giant crab in osaka (actually i found 2 of them.) now it is up to you to decide if the screenshot of the yakuza game is taken in osaka or in kyoto!

osaka crab

i guess it is osaka.. however the plane on the right does not seem right. maybe it was added after the game was designed i dunno. but the traffic signs look more in place. imagine the place at night with less people and less bikes


one of my new best friends…

Juni 30, 2008

i never played him a lot in the past but i think i definitively going to change this, since he looks so cute and adorable! only downturn is, that i thought sonic is really fast. but this is simply not true. either he got fat over the years or he uses a double for the dangerous stunts.

Juni 28, 2008

so i went to osaka den den town, AGAIN with a bunch of americans.. yeah couldn’t resist to see their reactions.. they were pretty freaked out, that there was hardly anything they remember from their childhood. no halo, no xbox stuff… hm where did it all go? to america.. yeah and they punished me in the end telling me that the BBQ next friday is going to be a 4th of july party … sucks 😉


so what happened.. oh i am taking too much away from tomorrows story.. to get back to the strange title.. it is about counting friends. i found three old/not so old companions. presenting number one:


It’s a meeee MARIO!

yes as you can see i have already a bunch of charms on my awesome keitai! GET-O!!!!!!!

living in japan: office edition

Juni 25, 2008

my desk

yeah.. this is my desk in the office. you can see that even though i have been here for only two weeks now the chaos‘ force to maximal entropy me drove me into letting it look like my desk in ulm. but maybe i just allowed myself to fit into the surrounding landscape like a chameleon, because if you look at the other pictures my desk doesn’t look that messy after all…

fushimi inari and the real kitsune

Juni 23, 2008

on saturday i visited the thousand torii of fushimi inari, as you can see on the pictures…


it is a very impressive walk of about 4km in length through at least thousand of these gates. it goes up a quite steep hill/mountain. from time to time the gates are interrupted by open spots, where you can find little lakes, shrines, and graveyards. the whole picture story can be seen on my picasa album: Fushimi Inari
