It was a fine day today and I couldn't resist to go out to explore the new place more. My initial plan of going to the FGS Temple was shelfed as today there isn't any particular activity, but might be going there tomorrow though.
To play safe this time, I brought a compass along (LOL) to avoid me being lost again hahah. But basically I'm just travelling between North and South.
Noticed the houses around the area looks like vacation house to me.
The journey took around 20 mins, with mostly uphill ride. Actually the route is pretty simple, far easier to get to the Kawagoe campus!
University buses. Free ride from the closest Kamifukuoka (上福岡) train station to the university campus.
This is where I'll be studying at. Shobi University, Kamifukuoka campus 尚美学園大学上福岡キャンパス.
Absolutely love the transparent ceiling which you can see the blue skies above~
Seems like the initial schedule for early April is out. Quite a few guidances to follow up huh.
Huge grassfield just behind the university campus.
Headed to the Media Centre where the library is housed at.
Randomly pick up a book to read. Talks about the town of Edo's (Tokyo's old name) history.
Another look at the centre square.
There's this short forest trail just beside the university campus, which leads to grassfield and residences.
After finish dwelling around the university, explore around the area which I landed myself at a huge mall.
Bought this cabinet, and it'll be send over by tomorrow morning. Need it to act as closet to orderly store clothings.
I'd like to remind you that these cloths aren't meant for human child, heh.
Do you know the reason why I took this pic? ^^
Super Viva Home, the name of the mall.
There're sections specifically cater for agriculture sectors, many stuffs which I saw it for the first time ever.
Some rice cleaner/sorter thingy, not quite sure how it works or it's purpose, but normally this type of machines can be found near farmlands.
Should've taken a panoramic pic here to show how big the mall is.
Evening snack, taiyaki!
Ordered a custard and cheese taiyaki. Oishikatta!
Honda's Technical College of Kanto region.
These following pics are taken on the way back from the university to the hostel. Spotted quite a lot of restaurants and shops on the way, which is good as I'm planning to find part-time job soon.
The earlier the pics means it's closer to the university, while the latter pics will be closer to the hostel.
Yakiniku buffet. Sounds tempting but not sure the price though.
Another yakiniku restaurant.
Off topic: the new Honda CR-Z!
Summit supermarket. Near my previous place in Tokyo there're a few of these supermarkets too.
Shidax, so called entertainment karaoke + restaurant club.
Here's a sushi restaurant. Might be coming here and try it out one day.
A restaurant specialise in Shabu-shabu & Sukiyaki, both are hotpot dishes.
Off topic: cabbage flowers meant for decoration and not for the stomach!
Shimamura, a fashion centre.
Jonathan's, one of the popular western family restaurants around.
This western-cuisine restaurant looks delicious, and thinking of working here as well.
Katsuya, a restaurant specialise in tonkatsu (豚カツ) and I ate there before last year. But personally I don't really like fried pork. :3
This Hiday restaurant is much bigger than it's Tokyo counterpart.
Reached hostel safe and sound~ Good thing I didn't get lost this time lol. Anyway I don't really feel safe cycling here as the roads are narrow and reckless drivers.
Here are a few stuffs which I've bought during the past few days.
First CD purchase, "Kaze no Toori Michi" Ghibli Collection featuring tracks composed by Joe Hisaishi. Got this yesterday at Omiya. Cost 1.8k yen.
「ブッダの教え一日一話」(Buddha's teaching, a lesson everyday) written by a Sri Lankan monk based in Japan, Rev. Alubomulle Sumanasara. Cost 1,2k yen.
Besides learning some knowledge, also wanted to get used to reading Japanese books.
A pseudo-carabiner to hook keys on my belt. Don't wanna stuff too many things into my pocket.
A pencil case.
Emergency food rations, just in case.... (I really hope I don't need to eat these one day though.)
That's all for today~
