The passage leading from Nakano station to the Nakano Broadway.

In my opinion the #1 go-to spot for otaku shoppers - ahead of Akihabara. It's like a piece of the Akihabra otaku culture, just mashed in a single building. And while Akihabara is quite male-oriented, the merchandise split is pretty much 1:1 across the genders here.

There is almost no theft in Tokyo - but your umbrella is the least safe possession in the city.

"So, since I have an unreserved seat, are there usually free seats in the non-reserved cars?" "Oh, rest assured, sir, there are always free seats."


Well, standing in a shinkanzen felt about as uncanny as if you didn't get a seat on the airplane. But I suspect the Sunday evening on the first true ohanami weekend was kind of exceptional. And in Nagoya, it freed up a bit and I did snatch a free seat, so all was good in the end.

But for now, time to take one of the last shinkanzens home.

Eh, sorry for the swapped order. The food in the ryokan wasn't that special but the eel wasn't bad either!

Of course you can't take photos in there, so I'm at least reposting an ad photo. It's not big! But wasn't crowded either.

The Kurama onsen is one of the basic hot bath options in Kyoto. There is also a ryokan, dining a few centimeters above the stream in summer, and great views of the surrounding mountain slopes from the outside bath.

So that's one of the really awesome things in Japan - you pretty much can't go thirsty in there! I think the vending machines must line even the hiking trails.

But the view is breathtaking. Sorry for posting so many pictures...

It's like climbing a hill to reach it, but then you notice that maybe you were climbing up a mansion all that time.

I think the Kurama-dera plays a pretty important role in the Japan history and development of Buddhism?
