Shigeru Mizuki's Pocket Visual Guide to Youkai Review

Had a flip through the Pocket Visual Guide to Yokai I bought while in Japan. Really nice little guide to 333 different demons and spirits you find in Japanese folklore. Apparently this is the 15th print since 2018. Only came across it in the pop-up shop, not the tea house. First section was dedicated to all the popular Yokai you'll find in...


Sankei Miniatuart Ghibli Papercraft – No. 19 Laputa

Been a while since I last built a Ghibli Minituart papercraft. This time, I'll be tackling a one star Laputa one model number 19 so it should be quicker.

No powdery or sponge bits to mess with this time. Decided to start off with the shelves since they looked to be the easiest. They were all large pieces while most of the other parts where...

These were the manned stations you have to go through instead of the regular gates if you want to use your JR Pass. Thing is, not all exits have...
