Stalking Tokyo

Last week's Monday, we had to make our alien registration cards because apparently; all foreigners are not from Planet Japan. Cute though. Anyway, in Bunkyo Civic Center, up on the 25th floor is an observation deck which has a 330 degree view of Tokyo. It was awesome. Looking down at the streets below, I kinda felt like I was playing SimCity because everything was so cute and small. The people, the cars, the streetlights. What was more amazing was that everyone was rushing, walking briskly with a purpose. I didn't see anyone who was just walking aimlessly, I felt like a stalker, which was all the more.. umm.. exciting?

Another thing that I felt was a sense of detachment, like I wasn't really there in Tokyo. But somewhere far far away. Hovering over people and putting thoughts in their heads.

Kimura: Lets go to Akihabara and get a brand new camera.

Takuya: Honto ni? Why not get a Sony CyberShot DSC-W30. In addition to sporting eye-level viewfinders in the fashion of traditional cameras, it is equipped with a large LCD screen and is significantly more compact than previous W-series models.

Kimura: What else is great about it?

Takuya: The new Sony CyberShot W30 offers a six-megapixel image resolution for high-quality prints, high-light sensitivity for fast-action shooting and more natural-looking pictures in low-light conditions, precision Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar 3x optical zoom lens, and MPEG1 movie recording.

Kimura: Sugoi. Suteki desu ne?

Takuya: Hai. It's available in silver and white and blue I think, the Sony CyberShot DSC-W30 model features a 2.0-inch, easy-to-view LCD screen wrapped in a metal-alloy body with sophisticated etching and details.

Kimura: Sugoi. I'm gonna get that one.
