[Ended] Naruto Exhibition in Osaka


Que pasa amigos? It’s Mr. Wada on duty. How did your Obon holiday go? I and Mrs. Wada actually stayed at cafe most of days but had a little adventure on the first day in Osaka for the Naruto Exhibition by the Seishun Ticket!

If you don’t know what a Seishun Ticket is, please refer to this post.



About Naruto Exhibit

This is about 15 years of art works by Masashi Kishimoto, the writer of Naruto who ended its manga in 2014. So it is a part of a celebration and also flashback of the whole Naruto thing.

This it it!
This it it!

FYI, he is from Okayama! (to be specific Nagi Town) Hehe. The world of Naruto was made based on Okayama, I’d say.



Naruto Exhibit


Hey, look over there. That is Kaiyukan, one of the biggest Aquariums in Japan (to be frank I’ve never been there).



And on your left, that’s where we are here for.

Wait for us, Naruto!


Enter the Exhibit

Ok, shall we enter the exhibit? A go go…then what?!? It’ll take 60 minutes to the entrance? No kidding!

60 minutes!!!??


It took us more than 60 minutes for real after all, though with all the pictures hang on the wall, etc., it didn’t feel that long. The closer we got to the entrance, the more excited we got!

Those bring me back some memories


What a cool poster

Finally we entered the exhibit…SORRY CAMERA IS NOT ALLOWED AT THIS EXHIBIT. Too bad. (>_<)

It displayed the original drawings, life-size statues, special movies, and many more. It’ll be the first and the last exhibit of Naruto. You’ve got to witness it with your own eyes!

Fishing in Okayama 2015 Summer


Hi guys. It’s Mr. Wada back on duty again within a short period of time. I’d just like to report quickly how our fishing went this week.

Fishing in Okayama 2015 summer

To be frank, we’ve been going fishing but actually haven’t got much this year. It was a little embarassing since I introduced fishing in Japan in previous posts!


This time though we got a little bit, so I thought it might be worth sharing.

Get to the New Fishing Spot

We left home at around 6 AM, which is rather late. Well, we tried to wake up earlier but failed…

Daaah. The sun’s already rising…hurry up!


I can smell fish…


A small marina


This place is called Okayama Riverside Marina, in Saidaiji, Okayama city. It is close to the Yoshii River where we tried last time.

Let’s Get Started!

OK, let’s try this place. As you see in this photo, it was a little rocky down there. We’d have to be careful with that. You know, hooks often get stuck with them.



Not so long after we started, I got the first catch! It is “haze”, a goby fish. It looks small but nah, big enough for a “haze.”

First catch (goby fish)!
First catch! (don’t look at the worm!)


Mrs. Wada also got one and it kept coming in. Another!

Second catch!
Second catch!



8 AM. We could’ve stayed longer but the sun was already starting to burn us out! We decided to retreat.

Today’s result


Some are still alive…



I wouldn’t say it was satisfying but alright, seems like we’ve found a new fishing spot. We may be back another time and try more. Let’s call it a day! However, our summer won’t end until we get big fish!

Had them for lunch!

See you around.
