Another Anime Expo has come and gone for me. It was once again a complete blast (Aside from the fact that The X-Games were taking place at the same time in the same place), although I only went for Days 2 and 3 and didn`t take as many pictures as I usually do. Regardless, I thought I`d quickly share with you what I did take, as well as the loot I acquired.
On Saturday, a friend and I were able to take a trip Little Tokyo in Los Angeles, CA. For the uninitiated, Little Tokyo is a district in which many Japanese-Americans frequent. As such, there are many shops and restaurants catering to their needs. It is considered a national landmark and a popular cultural attraction. If you’ve never been, consider this photo walk a little guide. (All photos taken with my trusty Nikon D3100 with the 18-55mm Kit Lens and CPL lens filter. And messed up by the JPEG conversion.)
Hanafuda is a traditional Japanese card game that was conceived when foreign cards were banned in the 1600s. Being very simple and quick to play, and with the added influence of seeing Summer Wars, I decided to pick up a deck for myself.
My old phone was faithful, but during phone calls, I could barely be heard, and I hardly texted anyone on it (Even though it is technically a texting phone). So, for my new phone, I decided I wanted a normal, Clam-Shell Phone. Seeing the beautiful designs of the Japanese Keitai Denwa (Mobile Phone), I went on a mission to acquire one. This is the result. I present to you, the Softbank 740SC.
