Dear readers,

I intend to use literary language in Japanese here since most of the blogs are written with colloquial style today and I think it would be a better way to write cross-cultural things in literary Japanese. Perhaps, computer translation may fail to do because of my expression. Even if it doesn’t work well, I hope you could enjoy my post through pictures.

Cheers, from Yokohama.





Would you like to contact me?

    1. Thanks for comments. I live in Yokohama, Japan and sometimes visit Europe in business. Probably I should add some text in English here. Wow, yes, ‘tagnoue’ is a bit strange. This is from my old nickname which is not common.

  1. Hello …

    I just wanted to catch up and say “thank you. I appreciate your ‘follow’, knowing how many interesting and entertaining blogs out there.

    Blogging since June 2013, my aim is to deliver an eclectic offering of posts, from my ‘point n shoot’ attempts at basic photography, to the sharing of my travel adventures over the decades, as well as day to day happenings here on our fruit farm in southern Turkey. I also add my observations on life and lighter-hearted stuff thrown in for good measure.

    The blog has grown to some 1150 posts now; so if you are at a loose end one day, you’d be most welcomed to stay a while and have a trawl through. There are plenty of drop-down categories within the menu to help in said digging process. Saying that, if you have any comments, suggestions or concerns, feel free to let me know.

    Thanks again and hope you have a great day…


  2. Your pictures are wonderful! And its wonderful that you have written most of your posts in Japanese and english. Nice to learn about the cross cultural experiences.

    1. Thank you for stopping by. I used to go to a movie many years ago but not now. One of my favorites was Suzuki Seijun’s film.
