Actually I have no idea why I decided to go to Japan ;-p
You can see that the top of each tower has an atrium which of course have gorgeous views.
Today I found out in Japanese class that when the trains stop, say because of an accident, it costs them on average $50K a minute in lost ticket sales. If it takes 30 minutes to fix that’s $1.5 million dollars.
I don’t quite know what the point is but NTT DoCoMo has a portable Kareoke machine. It’s about the size of CD player. It plugs into your phone and your TV and some speakers and a Mic. You have a catalog from which you select songs. They get downloaded over your cellphone to this machine and then played back.
FOMA = Freedom of Mobile multimedia Access. It’s NTT DoCoMo’s name for W-CDMA service which starts here in Japan in May, less than 2 months away.
I was in Shinjuku today wondering around and I stumbled upon the DoCoMo tryout center. They had some of the FOMA phone models on display. 384K to the phone, 64K from. Fast enough for reasonable video.
I actually lost some better pictures of these clouds. A bunch of coincidences piled up. First I had forgotten to empty my memory stick that was in the camera. I didn’t expect the memory stick to fill up but I forgot that the day before I had put some MP3 files on it as a test on somebody’s MP3 phone. Also I have several memory sticks but I had misplaced them and hadn’t taking the time to find them
So, one day we had a kimono day at school and I wanted to take pictures of as many people as possible wearing kimono’s so when I ran out of space I deleted a bunch of images. On the small screen I forgot why I took these pictures. At a glance they just looked like pictures of Iidabashi which I had alot of already.
