One of my goals this year is to get round to writing the A Week in Tokyo more often ^^; As usual am late and the last time I wrote this was just before Christmas.
Today we start off with a photo around my neck of the woods. There are a load of buildings crammed together in the back streets near Musashikoyama which I just love walking around.
After a week of editing the final episode of Culture Japan Season 1, it was time to drop the show onto tape which is then handed into Tokyo MX TV. Also spent a lot of time during January preparing data for the Animax Asia broadcast which ended its first season this weekend. Thank you all for watching! Culture Japan Season 2 soon!
T'was the Coming of Age Day in Japan mid Jan where a load of girls go to pamper themselves up for the special day. The Kimono is typically worn on the day but usually requires somebody to help one put it on. During this period, many hairdressers will advertise services to not only do up their hair but also makeup and kimono fitting too.
At the new Haneda International Airport to pick somebody up. Most of the folks in the terminal were not passengers but folks who have come to check out the shops and restaurants - got a separate post on this soon. A video report below showing how many Japanese locals have been to the place to check it out.
Meeting with the big boss of DLE Shiiki-san. His company is responsible for the Taka no Tsume anime series.
Last July, I presented on a TV show called Kira Kira Asia which was broadcast in Japan, Taiwan and Shanghai. DLE produced the show but I didn't get to meet up with Shiiki-san until this January.
Have not played the latest Monster Hunter PSP version that much yet - mostly spending gaming on the 3rd Birthday. Here we have some Banpresto Monster Hunter goodies. The big boss of Good Smile Company Aki Takanori used to work at Banpresto who left with a couple of other staff to do their own thing - which lead to Good Smile Company.
