I remember warming music at Culture and Arts Center in Daejeon…
Styled in the manner of a traditional hat,
an opera house with two halls, both hosting performances year-round.
Things getting more impressive the further in one goes and excusing poor resolution! (Here, the set for the Center’s Otello production.)
Idoru festival; fans waiting for face time with their idols.
Ice cream is the only food that can be eaten in public, ergo vendors on subway platforms.
Fab Cafe, coffee shop with 3D printers and space plants.
Refreshing cucumber on a stick.
I remember stars spilling off a wall…
and tiles from ’70s summery dreams.
On noons of May in tropical Tainan.
Shooting a backstreet fashion shooting.
Harajuku station bridge plus summer afternoon. (Not really many, or even a few, cosplay girls, other than pros or tourists in grossly made rent costumes.)
Entrance to Takeshita-dori: the number one tourist site in Japan to safely skip and save time. Unless you’re there for the fake plastic touristy stuff, of course. (The plastic crepe samples do look good, though.)
Uru-Harajuku: where the actual fashion hides.
[Edo-Tokyo Museum] Free entry: (…) atomic bomb survivor chart holders.
[2011 earthquake] Gas leakage: 1,238 gas supply points
Automatic shut off by microprocessor-based gas meter: 341 million points
[Apartment door] In case of a major earthquake, peel this sheet off and follow instructions on back.
[Shinjuku] Bitcoin can be used for payment.
Shutters of the Suho Paper Museum.
The rain season indulged everyone, by starting majestically on the first calendar day of summer.
