Happy Halloween everyone!

While I didn’t technically go to any parties or anything this week there were quite a few big ones in the Osaka area.  All of my schools had Halloween parties.  Many students said they would dress up.  I even got a 11 letters from one of my classes talking about the party.  Made me happy.

I did go to a party 2 weeks ago.  It wasn’t really a Halloween party it was on the 20th and I did dress up.  I was the only one who was wearing any sort of outfit and alot of people loved it.  It was actually the anniversary party for my friends juice shop.  But it turned out to be a gōkon (合コン) or mixer.  I didn’t know that until I got there.  Was my first experience for that sort of thing.  There were 200 people there.  Normally for these things you pay to get in.  Guys pay more than girls because there will usually be more guys.  This particular party the cost was 3500¥/guys 3000¥/girls.  And it was from 7PM to 5AM.  Because in Japan trains quit running at 12:30AM and it was in a town that is about 40mins away by train from my home station.

Now I got a discount to get in because of my friend so I only payed 3000¥.  But this was Nomihodai (飲み放題) is an “all-you-can-drink” party.  So you pay to meet people, and drink all night.  Now I’m not saying I was drinking all night.  But I did drink a few.  Might as well if you payed to go right.

But I did see a few people I knew and met alot of new people.  Got a phone # and some new LINE contacts.  All in all it was a good night.  Here are a few photos that were taken by one of the guys I met and later forwarded to me from one of the girls.

All were on my instagram but I know alot people don’t follow me there.

This is my friend Maico-chan I met awhile back at NaraStarMix.  I was passing out Glowsticks and GlowBracelets it was a big hit.

Now for the random pictures taken of me threw the night.  I’m probably in over 50 pictures in random phones all over now…
These are just a few of the ones that were forwarded to me by one of the girls I met.

And the sunrise when I finally got back to my station around 6:10AM

Sunset in Nara

About 2 weeks ago I went up to Nigatsudo Hall and took about an hour of video.  I’ve been wanting to capture the sunset or sunrise for awhile now.  Its not perfect by any means and I forgot to even bring a tripod.  So I’ll have to do this again when I’m more prepared.  This was more last minute than anything I just happened to be there with my camera.

Please enjoy and let me know what you think.
