Japan How It Is - Kurokabe Shopping District - Nagahama, Shiga



I took a stroll through Nagahama's Kurokabe Shopping District. One of the oldest Shopping districts in Japan.

Sturgeon general's warning: I shot this handheld so if you're prone to motion sickness, don't fullscreen this vid.

Random Japan Phone Snaps #4 ランダム携帯で撮った写真

Sometimes I snap things with my phone that I only ever use once or intend to use in the future but never do. They gradually build up till I drag them all off my phone into a dump folder, where would usually spend the rest of their digital eternities...

Until now.


Enjoy these random images of random times in random Japan.

Shibuya's Iconic Hachiko statue Desecrated!!!



In Shibuya yesterday I passed the Hachiko statue and it had been desecrated in the most garish, disgusting way. Taking this iconic statue and defacing it with plastic and fluff, reducing it to the level of Tokyo's endless supply of plastic faced, fluff-for-brains fashionistas.


That vacant stare of the fashion model in the poster, are lenses into the vast void that resides behind every fashionista's makeup. Soulless meat mannequins and their endless consumption of useless garbage, reducing one of the few real, true and meaningful, timeless things in Shibuya to yet another split second fong-kong, plastic throw-away novelty.

REVIEW: SJ4000 HD Action Cam (AkihabaraNews.com)

My latest Review

FauxPro Review.plate
The FauxPro: Showcasing SJCAM’s almost but not quite GoPro, the SJ4000 HD
The SJCAM SJ4000 action camera comes in a box that has no branding or name printed any of the surfaces. Apart from “SPORTS HD DV water resistant 30m,” there is nothing telling you who made it… Which is downright shady.
Pop it out of its box, and you will immediately recognize the design ‘inspiration’ for the camera. It is, for all intents and purposes, a knock-off GoPro, and as such, for the rest of this review it shall be called the FauxPro.
