Design is easy.....?

Always on the look out for design/film/animation/photo taking inspiration - Oh, and travel ideas, (although anything in Japan will always win hands down for me). Currently based in the North East of Scotland.

Magic day.lovely weather.arrived at Mt Fuji's fifth station around half way up which was cold and some 2000m above sea level, and very busy but the summit was in cloud so didn't see it but apparently there's no snow on it jst now anyway.then went on a boat trip around the mountain on lake ashi,then a cable car up Mt komagatake looking over hakone national park.then leon and i's favourite bit being kids of the eighties,rode the bullet train back to Tokyo!we did the odawara to tokyo journey (176km) in forty minutes.brilliant.also had a lovely bento lunch (like a packed lunch).apologies for my grumpy face in the picture.not quite sure what happened there!

summersonic part 2

(viewed 1575 times)
Mid afternoon at summersonic.seen a few smaller bands such as the noisettes,reverend and the makers etc and while heading over 2 another stage we caught the polyphonic spree singing nirvana's 'teen spirit' much 2 the utter delight of the japanese audience who went mental.we also had our photo taken by the press for some summersonic coverage much to both our embarrassments.saw 'enter shikari' for a laugh who turned out to put on an amusing show - pity we didn't have glow sticks!at summersonic they also hv little sideshows,one i noticed was an air guitar competition and another a staring competition called -'staremaster'.bigger bands are on later.waiting for that to all kick off.will post more show the walk in to the festival,the 'staremaster' and the subway this morning.
