Taking the world less travelled

Tour of the Neighbourhood

Posted by on Aug 16, 2009 in Life | 2 comments


Here’s a quick little tour of the area around my home. I am loving living here.

Of course there are vending machines. I love vending machines. In Australia I was always forgetting to bring a drink with me when I go out walking etc. Here, it’s something I don’t really need to worry about. Not only are beverages cheaper here, there is usually a vending machine around somewhere. I haven’t seen any hot food vending machines here yet, so far only drinks, cigarettes and alcohol machines (which I suppose is also a drink machine).


Rice fields! There are rice fields in the smallest spaces between buildings. However, rice here is expensive.


A karaoke joint. Haven’t been here yet.


A scarecrow in the field


Japan has a lot of buildings that look soooo old and run down.


Are there many vending machines where you live?

    Hey Carlie,

    So glad you are posting from Japan… was worried that you’d be too busy. If I weren’t to old I’d be trying to get on the JET program. Who knows? Maybe someday I’ll get to live in Japan, if only briefly. Until then, I depend on you lucky folks already there for inspiration. Many thanks from a fan!

    p.s. Really interested in how your Japanese progresses while you are there! がんばって!
