Sharing my discoveries as I take one foot in front of the other... through woods, over bridges. ^^
Mostly in Japan, but may involve something (or somewhere) else every now and then.

Like in the old shows I used to watch before, a rising robot with dramatic background music saves the day. When will they be real? #patlabor #ingram #japan #kyoto (at Heian Shrine)

"When you build something, you must be ready to spend time and money on failure. The best materials won’t always yield the best results. However, if you build something by improving on failure, you’ll end up with good results." — Mutta Nanba, #宇宙兄弟 (at 京都文化博物館)

Patlabor Ingram in front of Heian Shrine. A perfect mix of the future and the past that can be found only in Japan. #robot #shrine #scifi (at Heian Shrine)

A tiny opening is enough to see the light, despite all obstructions. Aim for that opening. Good morning Japan and good afternoon and good evening to the rest of the world. 😊 And happy Postdoc week! (at Izumo-taisha)

Another old train to Izumo Taisha. The interior of this train has been refurbished. The seats are now made of wood with soft cushions and are arranged face-to-face with a table in between, like in Europe. There are also divisions to simulate a compartment-like feel. #eshimane2014 #trains  (at 川跡駅)

The most classic train I’ve been on here in Japan. It’s a ‘One Man’ (driver) train that made a stop in the middle of the trip to change the driver’s seat from front to back (like a U-turn without making the U. This is in #Shimane - the least populated prefecture in The country. #japan #trains #eshimane2014 (at 松江しんじ湖温泉駅)
