I'm a Japanese web designer living in Melbourne Australia.
I write about life in here.



Great Great Ocian Road!!!


Today, I went Great ocean road whichi is the most famous site-seeing area in Melbourne.

I had not known this place until came here, but I looked many times in travel agencies in Melbourne.
We can go there by moderate price, and enjoy enormous nature.

The price is usualy about $75, but it is changed by agencies.
This day, I paid only $45 because my friends Ryan booked by Korean agency.
Therefore, tourist guide and other passengers are almost in

Although Great ocean road, but this is not spot.
It means perhaps long long way along the sea.

So, stopping many spot and enjoying there, is today’s pattern.

First of all, first stop is beach!
It was a little cold because of winter, but so big sea was awsome!
It will be more fun in summer.

We found wild koala at next stop!
We saw koala in Japan at times but it was first time to see a wild koala.
Koalas are almost sleeping in a day….

And these colorful birds were jumping toward people who has feeds by terrific speed…
They used to people, and rode on our head….

I took a picture when a bird was riding on Ryan’s back!

Finally, I arrived special-feauture place.
There are sheer cliffs and the waves are coming to there.
I was impressed by big scale like this.

Beyond the road, there is an inlet.
And there is beach in the inlet. So quiet and calm place.
It is said the model of “Porco rosso” that is an animation movie in Japan.

I enjoyed great Australia today!!
Thank you Ryan!!

A short trip in Melbourne city


We got used to live in Melbourne a little.
We went a short trip in Melbourne city.

Firstly, we walked arround the Queen St. and watched Australian buldings.
Melbourne has both old and new buildings.
It is amazing for me, because we usually rebuild a building after over about 50years.
The main reason is earthquakes.
But in here, there are so many old buildings. There is practically no earthquakes.

This is a free trum. This trum is running arround the city for free. But another trum has a charge.

This is ACMI.(Australian Centre for the Moving Image)
There are many videos, photos, games, and other medim. You can play Mario cart Wii in here.

This is one of the interface to choice the infomation.
Probably that is projected from ceil, and sensing by a camera.
You can choice the light ball by your finger. I have also seen some works like this in

This picture is taken along Yarra river.
Look that cafe! That cafe is on the river, and you can go from half of the bridge!
I have never try that place, but I wanna try.

From that bridge.
The light over there is from stadium. On the night, skyscraper is so nice.

Transfer in Sydney


Eventually, we have arrived to Melbourne!!!
The way was too long. I spent over 12 hours and got some accidents.

My routes had 2 transfer. The problem is second one it’s Sydney airport!
I had to transfer in Sydney to go to Melbourne, but I had to pass immigration check before transfer.
However, immigration check is tooooo loooong!!! We had been waiting over 1 hours.
When I was arriving transfer reception, our flights had already gone….
Accordingly we had to wait about 2 hours in Sydney airport….


Honestly, We might have used a short cut at immigration check.
I heard something for transfer customer by announce. So I asked a staff we have to transfer, but he said only “O.K.”.
So I thought to wait for a immigration check was not problem…

Fortunately, We didn’t need to pay extra costs, but someone has to pay at times. Be careful to transfering time.



Departure to Australia from Nagoya.


Finally, the day is comming.
I am going to be in Melbourne Australia after 12hours.
I couldn’t realize that before. Even now, that feelings doesn’t come enough.
However, I have prepared many things for last 3month in order to today.

Before I knows, I wanna live overseas someday. In order to realize that world is huge and experience other cultures.
I have to say thank you so much for my friends, boss, co-worker, and family. This travels make me happy and strong.
