Can we have one of these again?
Posting what I have.
Bought a somewhat expensive camera for my trip, but ended up with a ton of blurry/mediocre pictures. Really should have brought a tripod with me.
Aimlessly walking around Tokyo is life's greatest pleasure.
Super comfy. I love these threads, OP.
Got this off a /wg/ thread.
This might strike your fancy.
shoutout to the /jp/ & /trv/ C88 meetup anons who helped make this trip awesome
Some excellent pictures. Bittersweet scrolling through them, I just got back from a month stay in November and seeing all this is making me wish I was there
Walking down streets like this is seriously the best memory of my life, so many cool food places packed in and such a cool atmosphere...
Curious where this was taken.
mostly h i think, wasn't looking for non-h though so don't take my word for it
a few hundred meters from Kiomizu Temple in Kyoto
Where is this place? i have a photo of the same area, but i don't know where its from.
Somewhere on the mountains near Zao Onsen.
I like photographing local strays
more cat. and a butt can.
Cat cat cat
more Sasebo. Atop Mt. Yumihari.
Sasebo. It's like Kankore, but real
Osaka flower festival
Okayama and Okayama Castle

Welp, there goes 75% of my collection
These photos are all absolutely beautiful, though it's dangerous to my browser.
I use 4chan DLer so I don't need to keep checking tabs and can just download them all to specific folders
Anyone have anything from shrines or of torii gates like this?
I'll put it on mega, I need to update my archive and back it up anyways.
Does anyone know a good free archive splitter/joiner? I used hjsplit for JAV back in 2008-2009ish when megaupload and rapidshare were still around. I've had large uploads fail before, and my upload speed is currently shit so I need to do it piece by piece.
Ok, so my collection is about 5GB
My upload speed is currently 500Kbps, small b for bits not bytes (I'm in the country visiting family)
That's roughly 1MB per 16 seconds, so it would take 22 hours to upload the whole thing, in pieces, assuming none of it fails, which is unlikely with my shitty ass unreliable redneck hillbilly internet. Therefore, I am not going to do it.
I'll be back in a city for New Year's with civilized internet speeds, if this thread is still alive or a similar thread is up, I'll upload and link to it then.

>you will never see tokyo glitter in the dark
No, most of my shit comes from flickr and skyscrapercity. I've been there once but my photos suck. Photography actually takes a lot of skill, talent, and time to develop, and I'm not really that interested
flickr instituted some bullshit register to view in full res thing a while back, which is tied to your yahoo account, and yahoo accounts now require a phone number to sign up for, I tried using some throwaway voips but it didn't work. there's ways around it but if I can't be fucked desu, I wonder if they'll die.
It's urban comfiness. You just want to walk down that alley way forever, walking on the right to avoid the rain, with 2814 playing on your headphones, and reading the graffiti on the walls as the city life bustles somewhere distant beyond the walls of the lots.
>you and your fellow salarymen will never hit the izakaya after a 12 hour shift and talk about how your son made captain of the baseball team and how you think you're due for a promotion when you really aren't
welp, here you go, as promised
~4GB of Tokyo pics (a small amount of other Japanese cities and Chinese cities like HK, but similar vibe)
Keep in mind that not all of them are hi-res and I've posted some of the best shit in this thread already.
Uploaded in parts because I've had situations in the past where I had a monthly bandwidth usage cap and my internet cut out during large uploads, forcing me to restart from scratch.
>living in Japan
>tfw your city is nowhere near as awesome as these pics
Pic related, it's one of the main streets in my town. Feels bad man.
>not knowing the Ryugyong Hotel of glorious best Korea
I dunno. I guess you see places like that in some manga and it's weird to see it in reality. Mind you, first time I've personally seen something like it, I probably just didn't look.
Walking along the Sumida is not really enjoyable.
Not much to see, lots of traffic, and no konbini.
Your feet hurt and you wish you were home posting on jaypee.
Took this during my trip in Tokyo. Recently came back.
Yeah it was really pretty to look at in person. I wish I had a better camera with me at the time but all I had was my phone .
It's not misspelled. It's just romanized with Nihon-shiki romanization, which a few Japanese people still use, whereas the Western world mostly uses Revised Hepburn.
Revised Hepburn follows the phonetics of the morae, which makes it easier for foreigners to learn - you pronounce it how it looks. Nihon-shiki follows the technical structure of the hiragana, which means that you're going to end up with "ta, ti, tu, te, to" instead of "ta, chi, tsu, te, to". It's not phonetic, so it's harder for some foreigners, but as it matches how the Japanese learn hiragana from childhood, and as most Japanese at the time that Nihon-shiki was the most popular didn't have much knowledge of romaji anyway (and thus would never actually pronounce "tu" as anything else than "つ"), it proved to be the most popular one for actual native use.
I stayed in the hotel on the right in that pic, the Hotel Hana-An two years ago.
I love the Nikko area, I hope I can go there again.
Shit still looks comfy. How far were you from Tokyo?
>tfw taking the train from a cold lonely place to the big city. Seeing the lights from far away getting closer. Knowing you'll be partying the two nights away you are there. Maybe even get lucky with a lady.
...I wonder if anywhere else in the world puts up railings like that along city streets. it seems wise to add something to reduce the likelyhood of random people/things ending up in the road.
feels kinda comfy, looking at that. dunno why.
A bit on the expensive side, since you have your own personal bath/onsen right there overlooking the lake. ~$200 USD per night with the current exchange rate. That includes a really nice free dinner and breakfast though, so not that bad value actually.
Not him but yes, that's Arashiyama
