Today I was at the japanese garden in Leverkusen, Germany to snap some pictures.
We all saw what happened in Japan since the 11th of March.
Those are horrifying pictures we see everday in the news and in the papers or we hear from the radio.
The country we admire so much is in a huge catastrophe and the tsunami destroyed everything on its way.
The New York Times took some satelite pictures from before and after the tsunami and put a slider on it. Everyone can compare the pictures by moving the slider and see the amount of destruction left behind.
Thousands of people are now homeless and we all need to help. Sandra Bullock just donated 1 Mio $ of her own fortune to the victims in Japan.
A lot of rescue teams are trying to save as many lives as possible and to help those who now live in gyms.
If you do have a bit of money you can afford to donate please do so. Your local Red Cross Society is a wise decision and if they don’t send the money to Japan then you can directly donate to the Japanese Red Cross.
It’s been a while since I last updated here. I just didn’t feel like to write about some stuff that happened.
But now lets get straight to the point.
This weekend, on saturday, was the annual Japan Day in Düsseldorf, Germany.
There launched a website by the Japan Times which is a must see for Tokyo Fans around the world. The Tokyo.Japan Times.
If you love Tokyo and want to dream of being there you can browse the photos that members are uploading.
And if you have visited Tokyo so far or are living there right now and have a bunch of pictures somewhere on your HDD do not hesitate and upload some of them. Tokyo is an awesome city with different facets. You get the busy megacity life as well as relaxing parks and temples. And for lovers of this city it is always nice to see how other people experience Tokyo and how they snap a piece of the city in a single picture.
Of course I didn’t return from Japan with empty hands and I left a lot of moniez over there.
I flew to Japan with a suitcase 14 Kg in weight and returned with one 21 Kg in weight. Thats an additional 7 Kg just for souvenirs and stuff.
The small thing in the bottom left corner is a Hanko. A signatur stamp with my Forename.
4:30 in the morning. The alarm is ringing. Shut up -.-
Slowly I wake up and I realise its time to say sayounara.
View on the city from Odaiba Beach.
On friday Odaiba was calling for me. Odaiba is an island build by mankind in Tokyo Bay.
