Artisteer - Web Design Generator

Web Design Generator - Artisteer (Mac & PC) is a fun, low priced tool I used to make this and other custom WordPress based websites, including the new Savage Japan Podcast site and redesigned Savage Japan Movie Reviews site. Artisteer can also be used for general website layout, Blogger and other platforms. No programming skills required. I enjoyed using this product so much, I sought out one of their ad links to place here.

Photo #7 – Young Gaijin Discovers Japanese Vending Machines

Young gaijin discovers Japanese vending machines at the JR Kansai Airport Train Station.

This photo corresponds with Episode 2 of the Savage Japan Podcast. Episode 2 can be heard here at SavageJapan.com or here at SavageSnowPodcast.com.


For your departure from Kansai International Airport, if you choose to board the Haruka Express Train to Kyoto, you will enter at the overhead crosswalk level seen in Photo #5 and then descend to this platform after buying your ticket just inside the entrance of the JR Kansai Airport Station (Photo #6).

A streamlined bank of vending machines beckons with its glow on the dimly lit train platform, giving you a hint of the Japanese vending machine culture that will be experienced throughout your visit.

Photo Details: This image was snapped through the window of the Haruka Express Train, moments before rolling out of the Kansai Airport Station and onto the bridge that connects the airport’s small man-made island to Honshu, Japan’s main island. I suspect this young man has arrived in Japan for his first journey into the land of readily available vending machines. I’m sure many grand adventures are in store for him.
