During my vacation, I travel to different locations in Tokyo (by Train), and cycle around there. Besides enjoying the scenery and good food (which of course I plan ahead where to eat), I really enjoy the experience.
Unfortunately, I realized I don’t take enough photos during these trip.
The following are the two only photos I took from my Asakusa (浅草）area tour.
Watched FujiTV this morning. Every Saturday morning they have their regular show which has a “travel abroad” corner. It is usually a way to promote a specific airline or travel services. This time it was Polish Airlines, destination Amsterdam.
Let’s ignore the fact that there are direct flights to Amsterdam, and focus on contents.
Amsterdam – What comes to mind?
Kracht, boat tour, museums, Van Gogh, Rembrandt, Anne Frank and more.
Now what did the TV show presented. Steak Fondue, Sweets, and Miffy (which is actually in Utrecht).
Make me wonder who is the target audience of this TV show and are they so shallow that Art and history is not important, just Instagram opportunities.
Watched it almost back to back and finished within a week. Loved the story and characters, except the main male character who is obviously not a good actor.
Without spoilers it is difficult to explain further, but I definitely liked the first several episodes over the last.
5 women pay a writer a Million yen every month, no explanations and no questions are allowed. We learn a bit about each character as the story develops and experience also the writing process, the publishing world and the success that ensues.
The women are committed to assist the writer with his writing and make him successful.
Especially liked the character of 白川美波 (Shirakawa Minami) played by the model actress Fukushima Rila. (福島 リラ)
Kujira kills people by “convincing” them to commit suicide, Semi kills people with a knife and Suzuki entered this world to avenge the murder of his wife.
As expected, story and literary value is not satisfying, but I keep on reading. Partially to learn words and situations I am still not familiar with (crime and police), partially because I keep waiting for something to happen
