I have been using my free time to go visit around some more local stuff. Aki and I both are dorks and like to visit museums and parks haha. I am sort of a history buff, and when I can go see historical artifacts, etc., I take the chance. Recently, we visited the former cruise-liner, Hikawa Maru.
Yesterday, I also went to Odaiba for the first time, and had a great
time. We went to Miraikan, which is a museum of science and technology.
It mostly is targeted towards junior high/high school students, and
costs ¥600 for entry to the permanent exhibits.
Moving on, I'm thinking of compiling pictures and things I write or that others write (with their permission of course), into a kind of downloadable .pdf magazine. I really want to get back into doing design work, and no freelance work has come my way. So I thought I might as well take it upon myself to do something. The magazine would be free to download, but available in print for a small fee (idealistically). It's actually been a dream of mine to get involved in editorial design since way back when, and this would be a good way to start. I wouldn't be making much money, if any at all, from it, but it would add to my portfolio. My focus would be Japan/ex-pat related, but I'm trying to figure out which areas I should focus on. If you have any ideas, please feel free to input! And that's it for today.
