In early March, I rode out to Ome in West Tokyo and I made a video as I rode over Umegaya Pass. The pass is not particularly large and the video is sped up 2.5x.
On my revent trip to Nozawa, I used the GoPro to get a video of the trip down on the Gondola. The scenery over the valley was really beautiful.
Of particular interest to be was the variation in climate. The mountains on the left side of the shot have just about no snow on them whereas the ones on the right are quite snowy.
The video is 15 minutes but can be set to double speed and should be viewed at 720px if possible.
The CEO’s birthady is March 11th and consequnetly, the company depanneur was running a special offer that anyone who got a total purchase of 311yen would recieve a special gift.
It took about ten minutes of walking around the store to get the total just right and also required me to purchase things that I really didn’t need (like envelopes for gift money!) but I managed to find a set of products that totaled to 311yen.
And here is the gift… No really what I needed but fun nonetheless.
