Just off Chuu-ou Dori, 1 block west of the Belle Salle building is Watabe, a small import foods shop. They had this little room model on a table in front of their shop. The coaster on the floor is from MIA Cafe.
I'm the guy that created the Akira Toriyama Super Database, as well as the .Hack-oriented Helba Gata. Back in the 1990's, I lived in Japan for 2 years, working as a video game programmer and as a technical writer for Hitachi. After returning to the States and living in Texas for 10 years, I've decided to try living in Japan again. I'm interested in various manga, and to a lesser extent various anime. I'm also studying nihon-go.
