The Last November 2008 post~ I'm gonna miss this month!
Introducing today's photos . (Stay cool, no Fuji san this time w )

Very thin nice crescent against nice colors

Well I tried to include fuji san, but I couldn't see it due to clouds..besides, it was extremely cold.

As you know winter is coming...See you next spring! :p


And this is Hayao Miyazaki's newest movie. 崖の上のポニョ "Ponyo on the cliff".
It was first announced around the period of my entrance exams. Glad they became a memory!:)
I would love to see this movie sometime~!
The great thing about it is that no CG is involved. An Anime that was mainly done the traditional way. See the interview below.

One CM:


And here is the awesome ponyo song!(≧ω≦)
Also if you are a good nihongo student, you will go to this page, see the lyrics and sing along.(Mostly in Hiragana with very simple Kanji)

Disney's new movie.
Meet Wall-e~! An extremely lonely robot.

I am not a big fan of Disney but this time, this cute robot is involved!
I have been seeing eye-catching posters for it everyday in Shibuya. It is scheduled to be shown for the first time here December 5th.
By the way the Japanese commercial and the posters I saw are more touching.
Sometimes they would show you a picture like the one below with a line that's saying "Why nobody is here?","Why am I so lonely?".... well it wont give the same effect unless you see these lines in Japanese! lol

I think that the story is very nice.
And here is the Japanese commercial :

Now how about this?

Grass, fire, water,stone, electric.. all Kanji types!
1st,2nd,3rd,4th.... all their "KANvolution" levels! 
Gotta learn them all! 
Don't forget to complete the Kan-Dex!

Imagine if I changed this idea into an Anime.... (☆▽☆)$$$ ww

Yesterday I went on an all alone adventure to Mt. Takao.
I have been carefully watching the 紅葉前線 since the start of this month. And yesterday was a perfect sunny day with the perfect timing to view momiji on Mt. Takao according to this page.

Some appetetizers..continue reading~

Climbing the mountain was a little bit hard but a refreshing experience. I felt that I'm a stronger person after reaching the top.
There were a lot of trails to reach the top each with different features. I chose one randomly and started my way up.

The autumn colors were amazing, and the AMAZING 100% clear view of Mt. Fuji was the reward of reaching the top!


天日さん&富士山w Amani san and Fuji san

On the way down, I went from a different trail. It was really wonderful with a river flowing all the way down..BUT VERY DANGEROUS! some places one wrong step and bye bye~ enjoy a free fall..seriously.

..Another thing, in this trip I discovered a very nice side of Japanese people tht you rarely see in the busy daily life.
On your way up or down, most people that you encounter will greet you with a nice warm "konnichi wa"! It felt really nice.
I believe this "konnichi wa" holds alot inside.
"You and me are sharing the joy of watching this beatiful nature and are doing our best to reach the top, we are the same in this, so regardless where you came from, konnichi wa!:)"
This is how it meant to me.

I took more than 300 pictures! Will post the best here.
So I will leave the rest to the pictures!

Hope you enjoyed this!
Alot of comments please!! :)

Another unforgettable sunset

I've just enjoyed a very beautiful scene..
Fuji san against the autumn sunset sky~

Thanks to the lodge's 7th floor !
....I think that there is no camera that is better than one's own eyes. I took many pictures but no one could deliver the scene the way I saw it... (―、―;)

カマキリ Mantis

I met this BIG mantis at the lodge entrance the other day. It was around 20cm long!
Believe it or not, I am interested in such non-ordinary insects...I know my interests are very unpredictable! ^^;

A picture to give an idea about it's size

Look at the eyes in the following picture, he is truly posing for the camera!! (^▽^)

say cheeese!!

I wanted to keep it as a pet, but unfortunately I was in a hurry that morning :p

Tokyo from 250m above ground level

Yesterday was a perfect clear weather. So I decided to go to Tokyo tower for the first time.
Tokyo tower is the highest building in Tokyo.
Actually I feel ashamed of saying "for the first time" since I am already here for more than half a year. ^^;

Clear weather = High probability of seeing Fujisan
It was around 2:30 PM when I arrived there. The view of Tokyo from above was amazing, but it was very bright that mountains weren't very clear.

Roppongi hills and Shinjuku in the far background

Rainbow Bridge and Fuji TV building(The one with the shiny ball)

Nice feeling

Autumn colors

But at last I was able to enjoy seeing Mount Fuji for about 10 mintues. It only appeared at sunset time. I enjoyed the most beautiful sunset I ever saw in my life.. The sun hiding behind mount Fuji with a whole spectrum of sunset colors.. It can't be described by words..

The VERY sad fact is that by sunset time, my Camera's battery was already dead... I really felt sooo frustrated!! T_T But I could take some shots by my sooo-uncool-mobile camera .. hope it delivers at least a small part of the idea.. (The last 4 pictures)

This was the last picture I could take before my camera died.. If I just saved some battery power..just for 5 more minutes!! I would have been able to take high quality pics of the sunset Fuji...T_T

The sun hiding behind mount Fuji :

Tower at night

By the way I can see the upper part of Tokyo tower from my room.

View from my room.
A tree turning red, Roppongi hills and the upper part of Tokyo Tower

Until next time..
