Strange SSID

Yesterday, I backed from working trip. To my house from rail line and bus top, I need to walk for 20 - 30 minuts. In this season, it has strong snow storm. And the road for walker has too much snow as 20- 30 cm. It is too difficult to walk such a distance with laptop and some many things. So, I was picked up by my friend by his car.
After taking dinner, we went to a cafe. And we worked 30-60 minutes with coffee. He said "Oh, here we can use WiFi in this cafe! Because I saw a seal what we can use WiFi here." So, we tried to use WiFi. (we cannot use any network in that. I don't know why....) When that time, I was surprised because of name of SSID. I forget exact name but it was following.
Actually, in the cafe, it has another SSID named freeSPOT. First I tried normal "freeSPOT". But it did not work. And he said that the seal said password is password. However, i have no idea that the strange SSID is correct or not. Because in the cafe, I could find some other strange name like as some default name as (001D3FNDSJI)

I was considering something..... At that time, he tried that strange SSID. It could be accessable with that password "password". So, i also tried it, too.
It was also strange network. I cannot access to any site. But the DSN setting was correct. So, I can send ping to my uni. with no response. But I got correct ip address. First time to see this ssid, I thought it is fake or malicious network........

There are many WiFi services and different membership model. So, I don't follow any service of access point. So, I don't know that such kind of SSID is common or not.... but it was strange for me...........

Bicycle insurance in japan

Long time, I was considering about bicycle insurance.

Many japanese are not consider about insurance for bicycle in japan. Because japan is weak country for insurance.

Many people considered about when they are attacked by car. They didn't have an idea what they may be going to be individual at fault. However, road bikes are faster than my MTB. And, many of city bikes do not turn on a head light after sunset. The old person has also no idea what the bicycles can ride so fast as 50cc motar bike. Then they easy enter in front of bicycles. Such kind of accident is not few in japan. And, the worst case of such accident, the road bike rider needed to pay 40 millions yen to attacked person.

Bicycle ride's bad manner have begun to social issues. Some bicycle riders do not follow the traffic lights or traffic signs. In such background, sometime, I have risks what I will be attacked by such bicycle riders when I ride my MTB. However, as above reason, many riders have no insurance for r…

SSID in japanese?

Usually, we don't use japanese for setting to computer. Because, japaese needs at least two byte. Usually, many computer systems are designed for one byte. So, to use japanese in the system setting was not common way. If he is usual engineer then he will not set japanese for the setting to SSID. I was not do such a thing. Today, i read a tweet written by my friend. He wrote that he could see the japanese ssid from his house. I was really  suprized when i read it. So, I asked prof. Google about this ssid expression in japanese. So, it is  exist.Now, I had no wireless devces for trying it. But,it is so intersting thing for me.

TokyoWalking : Tram @Arakawa-Line

End of last year, I went to cycling to Ikebukuro. Ikebukuro is one of the main city on Yamanote-line (loop line) It is north area of Tokyo (loop-line).

Basically, most rail lines on mid-tokyo are as subway or elevated railway. So, it made my so surprising, when I saw it. 
This is tram in tokyo. I did not know that tokyo also has a tram.

Following photo is another tram station.

I saw several tram on the railway. Most of them are painted with different line (maybe...) This tram is named Toden-Arakawa-Line. This line is for Waseda University. I could not take the tram, becase I rode my bicycle. However, I will take the tram on some day.

Following river is River, Kanda. The river is used on some old japanese song.
