Shopping in Asahikawa

We went doing some shopping in the biggest near city. Hanging around by car we stopped at one mall and some other nice place..


A media shop… as you can see FFXIII guide already out…O_o

A nice charge of manga too… love the japanese item organization…

A wall of Gajapon



A nice bakery shop… the show how they work in the back… nice idea to hook customers!


We stopped to 2nd hand shop and i found this nice yoda copy


With a certificate too.


And they also have this amazing Rx78 Gundam… so nice and so expensive!

Time to go!


Setting-up for Japan

So next friday we’ll leave for Japan… finally ^^. It’s been quite some time since we visited my wife’s parents but we managed to go to them for this christmas.

We are going to Hokkaido, north of Japan. The weather there hits quite bad ( -23 during night ) but has the most beautiful snow i ever seen. I’ll bring my snowboard with me so today i decided to prepared it a little.


I’ll do the blades once there… i don’t know really what will happen to her during the trip, kinda scared.


Here she is a Nitro Target Select 165 Wide, a very entry level board. i’m not that good in snowboarding since i started last year.


Today i took a moment to install this brand new Burton Aluminum stud mats.


^^ playing a little with my Lumix LX3…


Here the result.

Well time to go.
