"From Akashima 5 months later...."

Akashima, January 10 2015

From: Konae Fumiko (@fmkko45)

To: Miyazawa Mizuki (@mizukimiya930)

Hey how are you? its already very cold here lately in Akashima, we have plenty snowfall earlier this month. I think Shinkyo have better temperature than here since it located more to the north. Anyway I still in new year holiday now, school start at next Monday so well its the end of my holiday here hahaha.....


I just remembered when we still in elementary school in Shinkyo, before my family move due to my father task. do you still remembered when we play in snow winter until it was dark already... what a memory lol. Oh btw I just moved into a new house, but still not far from the apartment we rent beforehand. I can still see it everyday when going to school or downton.


How is your holiday? what are you doing in new year? I had plenty boring holiday maybe in my opinion, being trapped in the house all since the holiday started XD... However I got a good new year, going around the city watching the countdown, you know there is some firework too here in this city but not as big as previous year since we still recovering from the disaster 5 month ago.


5 months ago the earthquake was very hardly hit my place here, thank god me and my family here okay and safe since we live in northern part of Akashima which barely affected by earthquake. There are some minor damage around my area here like some glass broke but thankfully nothing badly damaged.


But too bad with what happened in the south. I have some friend which affected badly with the earthquake, it's so sad to heard the story though. I can't even imagine how people in southern part of city when the disaster happened, too scary, I just can send pray to them. I hope this horrible disaster won't happened anymore here and anywhere else.



Anyway lets now wake up as the city begun to rebuild. Yesterday I can see how the city recover. There were many major redevelopment around the city. It's really incredible how fast the city recovered from the disaster.


Let's talk about other thing now, guess what? I have tried the new train in this city, well it's actually the same usual route to the school but it has new cabs. I like the new one design, or maybe just because its new hahahaha..

Anyway thats all I want to write now. I want to heard about your story too in Shinkyo, reply my email as soon as possible okay. ヾ(@^▽^@)ノ

your friend in Akashima

Konae Fumiko

カールさん: Well thank you though... sorry if I wrong a bit since I never see or feel snow since 1998.

Mymyjpさん: Thanks for the tips! Well as for the intersection tile, why I dont put any snow because it build in the area which climate doesnt give much snow (warm humid subtropical). For most place of Nakahara, I would consider the temperature during winter not drop so low because it has a subtropical climate instead of canada's continental climate.

cardiomonkeyさん:(1) Thanks, its mostly done by photoshop but in some place such as the terrain I use PEG Snow Mod which gives white ground instead of grassy one. (2) Thanks again... you dont missed anything though...


LnXさん: Thanks!

Asianessさん: Its cold indeed


MilitantRadicalさん: Thanks! I wish I can see em in real life anytime soon though

Ganhoさん: Thanks!

JP Schrieferさん: Thanks! Merry Christmas for you...

coolwiththecool2さん: well thanks.... yes it made using photoshop (thanks to the tutorial at youtube)

jmsepeさん: Congrats

:P I'll give you some plugins pack (later) :P

tankmankさん: Thanks!

NielsC007さん: Thanks!

Kim Sunwooさん: Thanks! and stay tuned..

Simul8ter8さん: Thanks a lot! I missed Hokkodo for sure since 2012....

Ayukawa city, capital of Ayukawa Prefecture and Nakahara 4th largest metropolitan area poured with heavy snow.


Today its really white I mean everywhere is white.... because of snow. Its really freezing here now, lets see how cold it is... it's -3C.


Well its in the south of Mitaka Station, one of the most dense district in Ayukawa here but its seems no much activity outside... maybe because its holiday already? or maybe because of the weather?


hmm seems nobody at park at this moment....


In the bridge of Kirigawa River here. The river's water seems very cold at this moment... waw.


Now in the Kirigawa-cho. well nothing much to do here actually


Lets go to Mitaka station area. there should be something better to do here since its one of the city's major hub and there're many stuff can be done here like shoping, karaoke etc....

Kirigawacho (霧川町) is a neighborhood located in Atsuta Ward, Ayukawa (鮎川市熱田区), located not far from Sakae, the downtown of Ayukawa:






Replies( 返事 ):

@ jmsepeさん: Thank you nakama :P

@ カールせんせい: lol yes.. after a lot of struggle to make it....

@ Gregさん: Thanks a lot! actually that is the thing that I would like to be focused for that update...

@ Ln Xさん: Thanks! the river is really made the city btw

@ sejr99999さん: Thanks a lot for stopping by!

@ fan o SC4さん: well you come in bad time since that was the time when majhost is down... :(


Well according to the poll, the next update (this one) would be in rural part of Watanabe Prefecture and it's here now. But I would try a different theme since this one is update 13....


warning: this update contain horror and myth stories, possibly make you creep out...


Chiyoko, a city in Watanabe Prefecture. It's just about 27km from Downtown Watanabe city, the prefecture capital also Nakahara's 2nd largest city. Beneath the city, there's a myth growing on local residents.


Chioka Forest (千岡森), a forest in Chiyoko. Legend said that this forest which some people called it as Chioka (血岡森) hide something inside it. Locals likely said that there's a forbidden place named Shinodake Estate inside the forest... is it true? lets find it out...


We stopped at the bus stop in this Sekichi town (関地町) on the side of Okuzawa Highway (岡沢街道), Watanabe Prefectural route 134 just from Shimazaki, 20km in the south of Chiyoko. Seems theres nothing wrong about this town so far.


Walking around this town, find out something about Shinodake estate maybe someone already know about it? it started to be dark here....


but anyway nothing different here, everything seems like usual town in Nakahara.... But.... why every time we ask about that place everyone just scared and avoiding it? some actually really pointing to the other way though... so, might just turn back and see what we can get....


Guess that we need to cross this major road again... and enter the town.


But this way seems pretty much less populated and houses started to be rare....


What now, the road in this area are badly maintained and now, seems the road ends here or not? anyway we havent found anything so far... so maybe lets continue there...


This place not have any sign of human life inside it, and this might just an abandoned pathway across the forest..


Wait what is this??? seems like this place used to be lived by people but now, not even a single soul inside it anymore... this heavy feeling just really weird and this place must have something wrong about it.... still we haven't found Shinodake name in any of these houses...


Going deeper into forest, my feeling about something wrong here are going heavier...


Going deeper into forest, my feeling about something wrong here are going heavier...


dunno why but I feels that place really strange.....


Dead end? really that house also not have that Shinodake name plate there..... or maybe it is the place, lets go inside...

few minutes later there's nothing related inside except a rundown house with furnitures.... oh no, its already dark outside...


I try to go back on this path.. to go back since I got nothing here.....


Strange but I feels like already walks for miles away and surely if measured in this afternoon, I should already see the main road now but how could it possible???


This place???? Really again???? looks like I just walking around in circle... but how????? I remembered that I just followed this road...

wait what is that??? WHATTT? AAAHHH?


That empty lot in the evening now it turn out to be a house complete with a sign name "Shinodake" that must be the place which mentioned earlier......


note: this story actually heavily influenced on Corpse Party Book of Shadow final chapter (blood drive) so maybe some already familiar with this one? lol

anyway thats all for this update hope you enjoyed....

Before starting, An interesting fact that "Sakura no Shiori" is Nakahara national anthem



(skip to 1:52 for the music)


Update 12: 桜の栞 | Sakura no Shiori (Mikawa)

Mikawa, also known as 1000 years capital city was the imperial capital of older Nakahara until it moved to Shizuku (now its named Shinkyo). Mikawa also ever become the capital of Seijima, a country formed in Sanese archipelago before splited to be Mitoyagi (Okaiken) and Nakahara (Credit to Tonraq for this history

:P ).


This city stand in the Mikawa bay (三河湾), in the Naoshima island (直島), western part of Nakahara. it located in the middle of valley between a mountainous region of Naoshima. Standing next to Kinai City (畿内市) of Kinai Prefecture (畿内県) in north, both city creates Nakahara 5th largest metropolitan area just below Ayukawa with population 4.7 millions people inside. Mikawa used to be Nakahara's largest city prior to the Tanaka Shogunate capital movement to Shizuku in 16th century, later on Mikawa surpassed by Nagawa in 17th century, Ayukawa and Fujiyoshi in 1947, Atarashima in 1956 if the latest trend increasing, it would fall bellow Miyazaki City in mid-2015.

This update mostly consist of Shimogyo Ward, Mikawa



Hongawa Castle (本川城), a Nakaharan castle in Shimogyo Ward (下京区), Mikawa. The original castle build in 17th century as the resident of Tanaka Shogunate in Mikawa at that time... the original castle heavily damaged during 1867 siege of Mikawa, though later the castle reconstructed. Its opened to public as a museum since 1962.


Hongawa Castle in 1675


The front gate of castle today, as it can be seen that much of the area has been changed a lot since 17th century..


East of the castle lies a residential area.. this area still consist a lot of older buildings mixed with some modern one..


Nishiyama-dori, in the south of Castle area... this road lies to the Nishiyama ward (西山区) of Mikawa which consist of mountainous area.


Western part of Shimogyo Ward still can be seen a lot of older buildings mixed with some post war modern building in this area. City government enacted the development limit toward the area due to the historical preservation of the wards.


Northern part of Shimogyo Ward, just next door to Kamigyo ward, home of Mikawa Imperial Palace... both ward currently bordered with the Nishi-Mikawa rail line..


Another picture from Nishi-Mikawa rail line, though this one fully in Shimogyo ward


Ikawa Station of Nishi-Mikawa rail line. this area can be seen fully developed with many modern buildings because its close to a busy rail line.


Nishi-Mikawa rail line crossing ikawa river, which also borders Shimogyo ward with Watarirouka Ward. Ikawa river itself is a branch river of bigger Ichikawa River (一川), which runs through western part of Mikawa.


Another shot of Ikawa river it can also seen the border within more older looking Shimogyo ward with more modern Watarirouka ward.


Shimogyo ward border with Nakagyo Ward (中京区) with Ichikawa River as the mark border between both ward and Nishi-Mikawa line as the border with Kamigyo Ward. Ichikawa River (一川) itself stand for First River of Mikawa, its the 2nd largest river of the city after Nakagawa (中川) in the middle of Mikawa and sightly larger than the third Kasukawa (粕川) which mark the eastern border of city and prefecture with Kinai Prefecture.

Previously..... a 9.1 Magnitude scale hit eastern coast of Nakahara in July 26 2014, 8.44am, city of Atarashima and its neighboring shaking hardly....


"Well everyone is okay? what a shake though...."


"Say what?? Nishigawa Highway overpass failure?? what next?"

"tsunami warning issues to the whole eastern Nakahara coastal area, residents must find higher shelter for the upcoming tsunami."



"Sea water in coastal area of Minamizaki Prefecture and Akashima receding rapidly. we need to find a higher area quickly!"

The sirens and announcement to avoid tsunami can be heard all across the city to find a saver shelter

08.45am local time


"NOOOOO!!! the wave come it overtop the wall! save yourself!!!"

few kilometers in the east, Akashima port.....


The wave hit the coast rapidly, bring everything there to be debris..... including the cargos etc..


Bank of River in Atarashima cant handle anymore of tsunami... it really unpredictable even with the preparation....


Akashima Highway in the way of wave.... the wave really bring down the city....

Eastern Nakahara 2014 Earthquake and Tsunami

A Magnitude earthquake 9.1 from 40km off east shore Maeda Island, Nakahara. Earthquake itself believed to be the megathrust earthquake due to the subduction of Cilician plate toward Mitoyagi Plate. Earthquake can be felt so far until Nagawa which is 600km northeast of the earthquake epicenter, even some people in Shinkyo can fell the earthquake eventhough its 900km away.

A fter the 9.1 Magnitude scale earthquake, East coast of Nakahara hit by a giant ocean wave. A 8m tsunami hit the east coast of Nakahara. Numberous of ships, homes and debris brought inland by this tsunami for about 3km into the mainland. The tsunami wall which build alongside the coast cant handle the size of upcoming wave. The largest city of region, Akashima not missed from the tsunami chaos. this 3rd largest metropolitan area of Nakahara hit by 6.2m high tsunami.

As for today (6/8), reported the casuality all across Nakahara about 38,446 body found, while 4,392 still missing until today and 21,410 injured. Minamizaki Prefecture reported being the worst city hit by the disaster as most of the shoreland of the area flatenned. The disaster itself also cost minimum about $271 billions making it the most expensive disaster ever hit Nakahara. Akashima city in Akashima prefecture suffer the most expensive damage all across nation.

Not only Nakahara, this major disaster also hit neighboring countries. Tsunami hit northern Teiko specifically Hayama Prefecture, 1,456 deaths, 2,465 injured and 6,356 missing. Total damage there estimated at $37.5 million.


Last, respect to all the victim of previous tsunami which hit all across the world, I pray the best for everyone and hopefully nothing like in this CJ update happens in real life...


in other news, as for update 12 forward, I would start again to show all across Nakahara not only around Atarashima....

There's people doing their activities in the suburban of Nakahara's 3rd largest metropolitan area.... yeah this city rank 3rd for Nakahara largest metropolitan area rank just below the largest Shinkyo-Watanabe and 2nd Nagawa-Kara-Fujiyoshi metropolitan area and sightly larger with the 4th one, Ayukawa with population about 8millions


This waterfront park of Arakawa, one of the place where industrial not covering the coastal area, The whole coast of region covered with the thick wall to prevent a major tidal wave or tsunami for entering the land.



People around the city doing their own stuff anywhere in this city. like in this park, there's some citizens who out for a little bit of fresh air or some chat with the neighbor maybe?


Well seems not all park are crowded anyway like this one in northeast of Arakawa....


Some area though still crowded like in the weekdays like in this road, Nishikawa Highway which people use to commute daily toward Akashima...... but well still less crowded than in weekdays....


Meanwhille in South coast of Akashima, seems some factories and warehouse is busy today...

"So basically I drive around the city last night man..."

"friday night routine eh?"


"well not every week or day but anyway its better than just stayed on home or just go to nearest bar..."

"for somehow I keep thinking to back to my hometown in Ayukawa though, i dont know why but I have a bad feeling"


"Ayukawa surely isnt much different though, since it also a large city just like here...."

"by the way, I see the most interesting part of city yesterday, Nishimachi area of Akashima where the infamous area for the young people of city"

Alongside the rail can be seen the vibrant of the city to the city outskirt in Arakawa River






Well yeah, this is the Arakawa River, where both cities border located


Western part of Nishiko Ward, Atarashima consist of dense residential area as well as minor commercial buildings




Ata Expressway Matsubaru Route among the sprawl of Western Nishiko Ward, Atarashima



Nishigawa Highway, Main road used as main daily route for those from western atarashima to commute to the town....

Just of the border, some housing where lower wealth people can live within this town,,,


Somewhere in this road, a man driving to his office. While listen to 2NE1's Come Back Home in the radio, he had a strange feeling that this song mean something to him. He feels that he should come back to his hometown in Ayukawa


Infamous long overpass of Nishigawa Highway


Reaching Nishi Ward, Atarashima where the western downtown area of Atarashima located...



Atarashima Stadium where the local soccer team play

Suiren-ward (睡蓮区) is one of the special ward located in the Nanohana city, Nakama. Though this area isnt as dense as neighboring Senta-ward(センター区), this area still ratherly busy.

Overpass to Senta from Suiren crossing the Suiren River (睡蓮川):

Mixed density in Suiren:


Now to more suburban looking area of Suiren:







it's been snow a little bit lately in this bustling metropolitan area, Nanohana (七花), Nakama.... eventhough so, the city activities seems run normaly just like everyday except it's holiday there. As well in Suiren (スイレン), a district in special prefecture of Nanohana.


Happy new year 2014 from Nanohana, Nakama.
