Programming, Politics and Ponies! Alumns of @TU_Dortmund with exchange to Tohoku University, Sendai, Japan (Sep. 2010 – Sep. 2011). German, English, 日本語.
Am #Phönixsee sieht alles friedlich aus. :-) #Dortmund
Hier liegt einiges herum, was man bestimmt nicht auf den Kopf kriegen will. #Dortmund #Unwetter
Der Versuch, ein Ampelmännchen zu knipsen, führte zu diesem Ergebnis. Das versuche ich besser morgen nochmal...
... und auf dem Weg zurück zum Hotel auch die Bundeswaschmaschine, ähm, das Bundeskanzleramt. ;-)
...den Bundestag natürlich...
Ich hab mir letztlich die vermutlich bekanntesten Orte angeschaut: Brandenburger Tor...
I'm at Centrair Airport (NGO), boarding in half an hour.
Train enthusiasts might like this photo from Saturday: combined Komachi/Hayabusa #Shinkansen in #Sendai station.
My Shinkansen from Sendai to Tokyo also stopped in #Fukushima, by the way. Photo taken while leaving the station.
Seen in Nagoya, near Kanayama station: A traffic light which tells you the seconds until it changes. #Japan
I managed to get a photo of Mt. Fuji during the #Shinkansen ride from Tokyo to Nagoya today. :-)
Back in Sendai after 2 and a half years, although just for the weekend. :-)
We visited a company that makes #tsukemono (pickled vegetables), and they gave us samples, which were GREAT. #Ise
八坂神社 (Yasaka-jinja) provided some insights regarding history of Shinto and Buddhism, esp. regarding syncretism.
This evening, we returned to #Ise from #Kyoto. This lecture on Noh theater was quite interesting.
Possibly my favorite photo from the #Nara trip: Todai-ji temple reflected in its pond.
Even some of the stone lanterns at Kasuga Taisha shrine are decorated with deer. #Nara
#Nara is famous for its #deer. Around the park, they're everywhere, and they aren't shy at all.
#Nara Park has some really beautiful spots. There were a lot of artists on the shore, sketching or drawing the scenery.
A beautiful view I saw yesterday near 小坡美術館 (Shouha Museum of Art, http://www.sarutahikojinja.or.jp/museum/)
