Sankei Miniatuart Doraemon Papercraft – No. 9 Takecopter

Been a long time since I last built a Sankei papercraft which was over 4 years ago after I got back from my first trip to Japan. Don't really feel like I have the patience for one of these any more since they literally take a whole day to put together but, I saw this and since I'm a fan of Doraemon, I imported it. It was during the pandemic when...

Anime Review 2020 Round-up III

This will probably be the last post of this year. What a crazy year it's been with the ongoing pandemic, lockdowns, masks, queues to get into shops... Although I think for some who have been given the opportunity to work from home won't be missing the commute and getting up early. Whatever the case, let's hope it all ends soon. It is the...


Real World Locations in Japanese Anime and Games

I was inspired to do this post after realising how many locations I recognised from shows and games I've played after visiting Japan. You will probably too once you've been since so many fictional works are based on real life locations and the great thing is you won't have to go out of your way to find these places unlike say Makoto...

Despite his best efforts to study and pass, they constantly harass and use his room for...


Trip in Japan Day 8 – Shirakawa Village, Takayama

Well, after a day's break of wandering around shops, it was back to touring the land of the rising sun. While I'm a big fan of Japanese games and Anime, I was also interested in Japan's culture thanks to all the TV programmes I grew up watching such as documentaries and travel programmes so I decided we should go visit a rural village while...


Trip in Japan Day 3 – Ghibli Museum, Fujiko Fujio Doraemon Museum

Ah yes, Ghibii Museum! This place is so busy you'll have to book 3 months in advance if you want a chance of getting in. Especially during the holiday seasons. It was either a JR train to Mitaka Station or a Keio train to Kichijoji. We chose Keio even though we had a JR Pass because it was faster by a 5 minutes or so. I read the route from Mitaka...

Taking a break from the re-makes we see Doraemon, Nobita and friends meeting an underwater race that as usual, starts off another adventure that reminds us to take good care of nature.
