Don Quijote

Quicky: if you ever get the chance to visit Don Quijote (Donki for short), do so. One of such shops is very close to Suehirocho subway station. (between it and Akihabara eki, station actually).

There are arcades, Pachinko & Slot, a maid café (with a waiting line), a whole floor and more dedicated to AKB48, lots of Love Live stuff and everything else you do or do not need.

There’s even a small selection of sex toys for him and even her. I think customs might give me a hard time if I were to bring any of that with me. xD

No home

Quicky: I have spotted almost no homeless people in Japan, I think. But maybe once or twice have I seen some unfortunates here in Tōkyō.


Quicky: so the Japanese girl band AKB48 is pretty popular as well, it seems. They even have their own cafe near Akihabara eki (station).

AKB of course means Akihabara… For different places in the country there are like girl bands with similarly devised names.

Marketing machines are raking in the moneys.


Quicky: if I’m not mistaken, at November 15th an awesome Japanese splatter movie will come out. I have to see that. Somehow…



Follow up: it’s As The Gods Will (Kamisama no Iu Toori, 神さまの言うとおり)

Power source

Quicky: Subway lines, or rather trains, are a power source for subway stations? (I read this on an advertisement)


Love Live

Quicky: I may have mentioned this before, but the virtual girl band Love Live is pretty popular, I’d reckon. Lots of merchandise is to be found. If I would like J-Pop, then I’d probably buy some of that music. But I don’t, alas. 😛

(seriously, it sounds omoshiroi, interesting, but at the same time like Alvin and the Chipmunks)

Less sleep

Quicky: it’s been a relatively short night for me. But it’s been worth it: I got the seats I want and can travel back to the Netherlands. Again, via Hong Kong. Yesh, I’m checked in now for my return flights.


Quicky: I’m not ready sure, but it’s either “Japanese”, “elderly” or “Japanese elderly”. But some folks apparently require little sleep.

For the record, I’m not talking about myself because I’m neither. xD
