Sometimes in life you are lucky! And this time it was me. I got couple of days leave left and I will go back to Japan. A second time. Heck yeah!
And it will be in autumn. A lot of red leaves, feels like maybe Canada and a lot of goood food ^.^
So, see you there!
Every now and then – I head to Japan to visit family, friends and some other bunch of people 🙂 This year I had the chance to leave for mor than a month and gladly I travelled a lot!
At first, I travelled to Shikoku, visited marvelous cities like Kochi, Shimanto and the beaches and continued to Naruto. Last days of this trip had been Nao-Shima (yes – pun intended!) and Kurashiki.
Last but not least a friend and I travelled from Kansai (Osaka, Kyoto) to Kanazawa, proceeded to Kanto (Tokyo & Kamakura) and ended up again in Kansai at Nara.
Couple of days with my family – and I left again for Europe! 🙂
Japan had been a blast, but it had been quite hectic to be here and there. So I just went for some days on the countryside filled with hard work! We turned a full yard of the second year compost with showels and wheelbarrels. But anyhow, on the countryside you might find some high quality food! 🙂
As every year – I’m in Japan. For now I will spend five weeks in and I’m pretty much enjoying this stay!
Family is in good condition and Japan’s economy looks more or less stable.
No thought had been spent and we booked a flight to Morocco. Gracefully Lufthansa went on strike so we had to rebook 10 hours before departure. Thanks LH 🙂
Anyhow – lovely experiences with all those fun people we met!
I got my first oldtimer, a soviet styled moped made in 1976 in the German Democratic Republic previously owned by a friend. A Schwalbe KR51/1 model K; K for Komfort // comfort.
3.5 bhp, 65 km/h max, nearly no torque, barely no sound absorbers and a lot of good vibrations.
Biggest issue – it was parked in Essen, 480 km from Reutlingen. But beeing well known as a no-brainer I tried to ride it to Reutlingen. But 80 kilometers upfront the cylinder broke. Bad luck, but got the full winter for repairs. Let’s see!
This time it had been Japan only. Cities like Osaka, Hirakata, Sapporo, Otaru, Izumo, Matsue, Sakkaiminato, Tottori, Kyoto, Nara…and a lot of food.
- Job is nearly fixed
- Master of Science nearly achieved
- Time to go to Japan
This time I will go to Hokkaido and to the japanese sea for some family vacation – stay tuned!
This Year I had a visitor from Japan. Nori-Kun a employee at NOSTRA, Osaka, Japan. We went to Kempten, the place where I have studied at bachelor degrees time. Far too cold (-11°C) and too much of snow (+50cm) for us. But anyhow – we made it and simply had a nice time there!
As usual: Happy New Year!

By incidence and interest I joined the student trip to Glashuette – the mekkah or valley of the watchmakers. Thankfully we had a Hotel in Dresden and could dip into some culture as well!
Glashütte on the major powerpoint and webslides looks like an Heidi-Village of watchmakers. But in the end its like every where in the world – SMUs and the big ones fighting for the best employees and legal support to maintain the 50% value creation within their products to perceive the name “Glashütte” within their brand.
Finally we had the chance to visit NOMOS the upcoming star, Glashütte Original the swatch owned enterprise and Nautische Instrumente Mühle Glashütte who is still in family property.
Anyhow its definetly interesting to see those magnificent and tiny semi-finished products on which a caliber is based on. Swiss milling in perfection!
