I wandered past this very interesting building when recording back streets in Osaka, and the sign below just intrigued me more! Turns out to be HQ for kinetic sculptor Susumu Shingu – check out his beautiful works here
The interviewers microphone cover made me laugh!
Angry firemen are angry!
At last! A video game I might actually want to play!
Best new bit of Japan travel advice from me is that if you don’t want to worry about your data use while in Japan, rent the gadget on the left – shown for scale beside my non-iPhone – its a portable wifi modem & router from Japan Mobile Rental who have an office at Narita and Kansai airports so you can book it, prepay via paypal for the number of days you need it, and then return it easily. Unlimited data, battery is good for about 4 hours of continuous use and you can network up to 5 devices to it! With this I used google maps on my iPad, got email on my iPad, cellphone & laptop etc all without any roaming charges at all! A great service, especially knowing you otherwise have to be a resident in Japan to buy a local sim card.
