I found a really interesting book in Jiyugaoka’s second hand bookstore today. It was 700yen. I’m at Starbucks today, and almost going to an event held nearby.
Until today, I was in the wonderful city of Kyoto, Japan. As I traveled via Shinkansen (Bullet train) for a little more than 2hours, I arrived in Kyoto.
People of Kyoto speak with a slight accent which is difficult to describe in English. Maybe the sort of difference of New England English vs. the San Francisco English. Well, you will have to actually go there to grasp the difference of Japanese accents.
I traveled first to the train museum which I thoroughly enjoyed and even bought a TOMIX freight car N gauge train model as an omiyage.
The next day, I went around the city although it was raining.
The third day, which is today, I bought a book about intellectual living in Kyoto Station’s bookstore and completed reading it on the Shinkansen ride back. I will upload photos I took later. See you!
Just as we run through perils and winding roads, we see a light. A Light that shines in my soul. Yes, it is that Light that makes me happy.
I just noticed the other day that Kaggle joined Google.
Well, that’s that I guess, I hope they don’t shut it down sometime later… 😦
At the moment, I am installing Visual Studio 2015 for installing Arrayfire (for God knows how many times now!) I hope I can learn to program it well this time. I keep saying I have to make a search engine ranker with CUDA acceleration…
Here’s a photo of Neon Genesis EVANGELION EV 200V Charging Station in Hakone, Japan.

So, I stocked some things like tapes and digital cameras recently.
One digital camera is a very old one, called FUJIFILM 4900Z which has about 2Megapixel HoneyComb CCD. Another is quite recent one made in 2012 called IXY 3. It has an amazing 12X optical zoom!
Here’s my eBay store if you want to buy tapes, PDAs, laptops, WonderSwan Crystal and more.
Here’s my Amazon.co.jp listing. (for those who live in Japan)
