I've been busy uploading lots of pics to my Flickr account.

Summer vacation is here, and I will soon take my daughter to the Tatsunoko Anime World exhibit at the Fujikawa Rakuza near where I live! I'll be taking pics and video for my YT account.

I updated my Tumblr photostream this morning with pictures of Christmas lights in Shizuoka City and some pics of my trip to Tokyo last week. I visited the legendary Mikado game center by Takadanobaba Station and took some pics inside. I intend to go back and do a video of that place. Lots of old school gaming greatness! I hopped on the Space Harrier cab while my friend played Marble Madness. Then it was on to Darius II, and despite the two video screens being out of synch, the sound blasting from the cab and rumbling the seat was still just as intense!

I also took pics of plenty of new gachapon machines, including Dragon Quest, Mother 2, and Attack on Titan.

Wow, some great pics! I love the heart-shaped light...you can get one of those in Animal Crossing, lol, it's really cute. XD

I must show one of my friends those Peanuts donuts! She adores Charlie Brown, she'd get a kick out of those.

Love how the advertisement for those Cheerleader gashapon is basically a close-up of her butt. ;P

Yeah, the name of those gachapon is a pun on "panchira" (upskirt view) and "cheerleader": "Chiraleader!"

I've added some more pictures I overlooked right now.

Haha, I had just glanced at it and thought it said Cheerleader, you're right! XD

I read your blog and noticed you are from Arizona. I used to live in Arizona myself and my family now lives in Gilbert. My father is from Tempe (while my mother is from Hawaii). I do visit every Christmas break. Nice to know a guy from Arizona is also living in Japan. Pretty cool you also used to live in Himeji since it is sister cities with Phoenix. I now live in Utsunomiya.
