Happy Hours: I saw an interesting piece on NHK the other day. Some Japanese artist painted a series of views of different vantage points of Mount Fuji. They were cheap when initially released. Now a print will sell for as much as a house (so they said). Damn NHK not giving exact figures again even though they do measure rainfall in millimeters. Really? Who farking cares about the millimeters of rain? I only care when we get multiple INCHES./They didn't say it, but I got the impression the guy was like the Japanese version of Norman Rockwell.
Vlad the Impala: Mt Fuji! It's a myth! I've been to Tokyo several times and never seen it: not from street level, not from the observation platform at the maritime museum, not from the top of the Tokyo Tower. I've even been right past it on the Shinkansen - but apparently it was on vacation that day?It's just a story, like the Loch Ness Monster - designed to fleece the gullible.
dervish16108: Anyone have a google street view of that place? If you have the address in romaji, you can plug it into diddlefinger.com
kd8our: dervish16108: Anyone have a google street view of that place? If you have the address in romaji, you can plug it into diddlefinger.comdiddlefinger.com that sounds like a place one might find a load of white windowless vans... for sale.
stuffy: Why not put an observation deck on top of the building?
