Discover of tokyo "Omotesando area": it mixes modern design and old things

i may write some posts about life tracking devices.
well, after i start to use such devices, our walking distance became larger .  it was two km was the largest distance for walking, when we got them. now, especially, after came back from europe, two km for our walking is normal thing. we walked 30km on beginning of this month. And, we walked 23km on last weekend.
"I'll write review about such devices later. "

today, i write about walking on one day of last weekend.

I walked around omitesando, tokyo. it is an area between harajyuku and gaien park. Usually, the area are famous for modern and arts. I do not know well about tokyo. But, i also know littele bit about the area, even if i am such person.

In that walking, I could find more new knowledge about omotesando.

Following photo is a exact same as my image for Omotesando.


Above photo is a french foods restaurant.

And Cafes.
Like as above, Omotesando has many shop which is famous for girls and people who has interest in fashions. (in my image)

However, Omotesando had some other faces, too.

One is green. Some small streets have some green area like as below.
 I was surprised because of the green. In Osaka-city (2nd or 3rd largest city in japan), there are not such greens in a center of city.

The other face is old.
I found many too old building among modern designed building as below.
This building clothed vegetations. And the vegetations made fruites.

Like as above, Omotesando area is not simple area. I will be able to find some other new elements on next time, too.

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.

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.

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.


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.

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…
