Japs are pretty good at building cities and architecture overall in spite of being confined to the boundaries of their fucking island. It's also a miracle they managed to preserve at least some of their older edifices and merge it neatly with the modern buildings.

i'll try and find the locations for these places. i know it was shikoku and can probably find using google maps. it is a crazy hilly and mountainy island, and you go through tunnels every 15 minutes, but coming out of them you get views like these from across your mountain you see villages and lovely places on the other side, dams, terraces, bridges, lots of rocky rivers and bushy bamboo stuff comforting everything

It has indeed been my dream since childhood to live on the honorable and sacred Rishiri Island 利尻島. I knew from the first time I laid my eyes upon depictions of this majestic wonder, that I knew it was my life's purpose to settle there.

Every day Rishiri beckons to me, relentlessly, and I yearn to reciprocate it's siron song. My bones ache for Rishiri, so some day they can settle into the island, becoming one with it's soil and thus it's eternal spirit.

I have tirelessly tried to find a modest dwelling on rishiri, where I will spend the rest of my days NEETing and living every day in awe of the land I hope to one day be privileged enough to inhabit. I will subsist off of Rice and the vegetables and plants I will grow in my garden.

One day, Rishiri, we will be united forever.

here's something funny. it's a kind of rest stop where drivers can pull over and walk inside to… to do what? if you were to walk inside, you'd see dozens of vending machines filled with porn and sex toys. it's essentially a miniature unmanned porn store.

when i passed this, i thought it was just regular 24hr food vending machines and so i went inside, but man was i wrong. i had never heard of such a thing before, i thought it was cool. i think about it sometimes. it probably has some japanese sign clearly indicating what is inside, but if you can't read it, you wouldn't know any better

Japan is just so fucking comfy I can't take it.

Whenever I see images of Japan the cities look like actual cities. Like you see a street and every building looks different. It all looks more personal and human. The streets are narrow and have those neat details like vending machines everywhere. In the big cities with the skyscrapers there are colorful ads and shop signs everywhere. It just feels alive.

All other european and american cities (some cozy villages and small towns aside) look soulless like something built by a computer. The buildings all have the same square shape and grey colors.

In the middle it only says videos-books so it doesn't seem very obvious even in Japanese.

The top of the sign is too blurry to make out so maybe that says 成年 or something, looks like three characters though.

It's kind of interesting to me that porn stores still survive with the internet, even here in Murrica there is a video store near me that I never see anyone go to but it's been open forever.

I don't agree with that. Individualism, period, can be a good thing. Though with what you said, you may just be put off by "slacktivism" and the like. As much as the Law of Jante is popular on Wizchan, I still believe in individualism and hold collectivism would be disconcerting to Westerners. The Nordic and East Asian seem strangely "autistic" or maybe evolved compared to the rest of the world. What I'd rather see the government do would be to ban things like you said but also sponsor local workshops or makerspaces where the community gets together to mod the generic products to their desires.

Signalling your individualism through material objects is just dumb sorry. Because you aren't even doing that, just falling for the consumerism meme. Frankly I agree with the other poster but would go even further. Make school uniforms mandatory for every school, make the production, sale, import or wearing of any clothing with logos a capital offense, Ban hairdye, ban piercings, ban tattoos, along with banning all vehicle colors except white, bumper stickers and so on. Also ban lawn ornaments too and only allow the most utilitarian frame and shape of eyeglasses to be sold.

After you get rid of this sort of superfluous 'individualism', then we'll see if breeders start to differentiate themselves by their actions and beliefs instead and if actual individualism is indeed good or not.

This is off topic but I have to get this out:

Most people have a bad taste. Now thanks to cheap production and consumerism people get to live out their bad taste. Just look around and see what kind of stuff people are wearing. Neon colored t-shirts with cringeworthy misused memes on them. There is just so much shit out there that tries to entice the average consumer by being flashy.

I think that unless you have good taste / you are an enthusiast you should just get whatever looks the most inoffensive and is the most practical.

It looks like back then bad taste was being kept to a minimum.

This is how I've always operated, more or less.

My disgusting sister, the normans I've been forced into contact with through necessity and the internet have all referred to different aspects of my general ensemble (if one can call it that) as "Autism X."

Fashion is a terrible meme because it just fools insecure normans with boring 'personalities' to buy cartloads of sweatshop rags marked up at 1000% with some cologne sprayed on them and a model paid to wear them. Not only that, they created a sick henpecking system that shames those who dont subscribe to the meme, though that's the case with most norman spooks anyways. If you've ever watched people obsessed with fashion, you'll see they are in some sick delusion where they think they are somehow 'obtaining' the attractiveness of the model. It only works when the victim lacks self awareness and has fallen for the meme.

Better turn this into a 'pictures of Japanese fashion' thread before we derail it.

 No.21852

>>21751
You have no idea what you are talking about. People truly obsessed with fashion are nerds who dont give a shit about how models look in the clothes. A model is literally a walking manniquin. Just an aesthetic piece but the clothes are the real art. There are some pieces i would like to own that i might only wear once or twice like archival pieces but the history and the craftmanship behind them would be enough just to take them out and look and feel them once in a while

Fuck I dreamt about Japan again last night.
Ever since I went there years ago and wandered the countryside. I've had vivid dreams ever since. Always following the coastline.

Last night I dreamt that I wandered to a temple located on a little secluded island, only accessible at low tide. The statues and temple foundations all had mussels and seaweed on them from when the water was rising. The night time came along with the tide, stranding me there, and I thought "What a wonderful place to spend New Year's on." Which is strange because I didn't even know it was NYE already today.

These dreams are painful to wake up from.
