    • Tsukishima Monja
      If you are travelling in Tokyo then you will want to try some of the local traditional grub. There is small man made island inside Tokyo Bay called Tsukishima [月島[つきしま]] filled with restaurants which serve a dish called Monjayaki [もんじゃ焼き] (sometimes just called "Monja"). If you are going by public transport then just get off at Tsukishima station o […]
    • Tokyo Pets
      Do you keep pets? If so would that be a cat or dog? Maybe some beetles? or how about a pig? Spotted this fellow in our local shopping arcade the other day walking his very sweet pig.This post contains a poll, click here to view.This post contains a poll, click here to view.For those who answered "Dog" - how much did you pay for it? I saw this littl […]
    • Robot Pulley Systems
      For the past few months we have been working on a different approach to building Smart Doll Automatic Version - using a system of pulleys which are controlled by servo motors - rather than having servos placed in all the limbs. The main problem we faced with the servos in the limbs was the lack of torque needed to be able to move the limbs especially when th […]
    • AX2014 Culture Japan Booth
      Anime Expo - one of the worlds largest anime/japan events. This years event took place between the 3rd and 6th of July at the Los Angeles Convention Center and was filled to the brim with anime fans - over 80,000 of them! Just like last year, we had a booth in the South Lobby. Unlike last year however, I was finally able to show the world the final version o […]
    • Japan Dentist
      One day I woke up with a pain on the side of my face and thought that maybe I had slept in an odd position to cause the pain (like with my foot in my face). I thought that the pain would go away after a while but it gradually became worse. I then noticed that I couldn't grind my food properly and that I could only chew on my food with my front two teeth […]

Lost series. Copypaste mayhem.

Had been a devoted fan of Lost series, when I had cable in my apartment.
As far as I can remember, hadn’t missed an episode.
It’s been really captivating, indeed.
Digged out a few absolutely and utterly hilarious copy-pastes from iichan.

Cooking in Brooklyn. (sort of…)

Since starting a new job, barely have a time to cook at all.
Today, carved some time to scramble some GyuDon with Bunashimeji mushrooms for supper.

Tasty!

Afternoon, eastern Jersey.

Been to Jersey today on business. On the way back couldn’t miss the chance of having late lunch / early supper at my favorite place nearby – Mitsuwa.

Miso ramen and ikura rice for noms.

Detolf overhaul.

Detolf itself is certainly a fine piece of Swedish ingenuity. Just think about it, four pieces of tampered glass, few metal rods, chrome hinges and couple of boards made of a wooden scraps! All this for around $60, brilliant!

Detolf01
Wouldn’t you mind having a mirror in your Detolf, so you won’t only stare on the fronts of your figurines, Gundams or pristine Victorian pottery for what so not? I certainly wouldn’t!

Snow aftermath photo walk. Fun in the snow.

Was around lower Brooklyn – Bensonhurst area, snapped several shoots of the aftermath of the yesterdays “epic”, according to weather blokes, snow storm.

Scenery here, drastically differ from the City’s. Sanitation blokes here will just plow the streets and leave snow on the side to wait for the good times to come.

Takoyaki lunch.

From my recent shopping trip to Mitsuwa brought a pack of frozen “Takoyaki” (jap., romaji) – essentially a baked wheat blob with a piece of octopus inside.
That’s where the name of the dish originates from “tako” (jap., romaji) – octopus and “yaki” (jap., romaji) – process of baking food.
Served with special souse and topped with “bonito” (jap., romaji) – dried tuna shavings.
Already pre-cooked and astonishingly delicious.

Do you have an ability to satisfy “otaku” cravings on your side of the pond?

Photo “Everydations”.

Everydations – a notion that I came up with to underline, photos of mine that don’t really fall under any feasible categories, random stuff so do speak.

Earlier that week was on Manhattan to get some art supplies in china town around Canal street, back streets around this area drastically differ from what an outsider may think of shiny and sparkling city of glass and concrete.
