Mobile phone repair
At the beginning of the year, I noticed that my mobile phone wouldn't take photos anymore. It did actually take photos, but they were all gray!
Until today I didn't have time to drop by a DoCoMo shop. Luckily they told me that they'd repair it for free (as they do for any keitai up to 3 years after purchase). I was relieved because I thought I'd be given the option of an expensive repair or an expensive new phone. I've actually been really happy with my SO902i (by Sony), which despite old it has a nice non-folding and non-sliding design, and it has features like multi-tasking that I could hardly do without.
It will take up to a week until it's repaired, and meanwhile I was lent a 2 year old SH703i (by Sharp) that's better than nothing. :)
Then I hope that my Sony will last me a bit longer, until the timer goes bang!

On January 5, we headed to Nikkō with my parents. I had been there once in 2002, so it had been a long time!
Nikkō's Tōshō-gu is a Shinto shrine famous for being the location of the oldest known representation of the famous three wise monkeys ("see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil"). While the story has come from China, the monkeys came from the Japanese-translated saying. You can learn a lot more about this at Wikipedia.
So here are my best photos of the day.
