One Potato Two




Winter Japan Trip 2011-2012

Niigata-city day!

S-san of GAINAX was in Niigata for the weekend, so I went to go see her.
Niigata-city is the hometown of S-san and Yamaga-san,
as well as other famous people in this industry like Rumiko Takahashi and Takeshi Obata.

I hopped on the Shinkansen to Niigata-city.

S-san took me to a sushi restaurant for lunch.


It was so freaking delicious.
I actually don't like sushi or sashimi much, but I finished my plate in seconds.

We then went to the Nihonkai Tower.
We had a nice view of the Sea of Japan.

S-san also showed me the area where Megumi Yokota was abducted by North Korea.

She showed me the city for about half the day.
We visited a movie theater where Yamaga-san used to work,
and where they still work with GAINAX to do some screenings.

It was fun seeing S-san outside of Tokyo and the United States, in a non-work environment.
