Nokogiriyama is located in Chiba, Japan which is about 1 hour train ride from Tokyo station. This is another hidden treasure in Japan, which doesnt get much publicity. It has wonderful view and amazingly rich history in this place!

We took a local train ride from Tokyo station to go to Nokogiri-yama, it took us 2 hours to get there! the train ride is long, but the view along the way is amazing.

Car virtual girlfriend iOS app

This is an interesting iOS application currently developing in Tokyo, Japan.

It is known as 助手席カノジョ (Virtual girlfriend)

It collects CAN data from car using a OBDII connector and the data will be sent to the cloud. CAN (Controller Area Network) data provides car information such as speed, steering angle, engine RPM and etc.

The virtual passenger girlfriend will react based on the CAN data. If the driver drives very fast, the virtual passenger will scream to alert the driver to slow down!


Last weekend, went for a hike in Sakura-yama (Sakura mountain) in Okutama. It was 2 hours train ride from Shinjuku station with few transits. It was a long journey with beautiful country side view along the train track.
