Big in Japan

26 Mar

Lately we’ve all heard in the news about Japan and the tragedy japanese people are living now. My best wishes and biggest hopes for them. I am sure, as strong and hard working as they are, soon they will be reborn.

All this said, when the other day Jops suggested to visit the Second Life version of Japan thought it would be a great idea to see how someone portrayed the real country in a virtual world. Said and done, we headed to explore this great sim.

Here’s Jops enjoying the sunset views.

I’ve never been to Japan but, for what i can tell, whoever created the sim did an awesome job. You can find typical stores, clubs, houses…aswell as some secret hideouts and even a submarine nightclub!

Yay duty free!!!!!

The only bad thing is the lag is awful, we were lucky it was almost empty during our visit, i don’t want to imagine if more than let’s say 10 people want to explore at a time!!Maybe i could suggest the owner a restart once in a while, so you don’t get stuck while trying to enjoy the beauty.

High heels make you look sexier and more elegant, yes…but sure it’s not the most suitable footwear to go sightseeing!!!!Veeery tired , with my poor pixelated feet hurting like hell, i thought it would be nice catching the train to the upper part of town.

Not being a resident, i had no idea of the train timetable, so i waited and waited…and soon started to need a restroom badly. Isn’t it funny how, the more you need to pee, the less likely you’re to find a bathroom?

Now Jops doesn’t wonder anymore why the sea was starting to look yellow!!!

Finally the train arrived. Seats weren’t too comfy i must say but hey, it is better than walking on 10 cm heels up hill!!!

I continued the trip til the last stop, up the hill, enjoying the astonishing beauty of the views and i found something totally unespected…a school!!!Verne didn’t come with us this time, but i will have to bring him soon. I am sure he’ll love this school, plus he can learn japanese to talk with Jops!!! (yes, Jops can talk japanese haha)

More to be shown soon…
