Here is a short survey from VoiceNote Magazine looking at video and photo memories.

One reason for the survey was to promote a service that will back up your physical photos and videos to the cloud.

My wife used to have a huge amount of video tapes lying around that would never get watched, but when we moved last time into a smaller flat, she took the opportunity to throw almost all of them away. However, we still have a heap of DVDs of unwatched TV that I suspect will go straight into the bin next time we move, hopefully.

It’s quite amazing what turns up when you search for VHS photos…

Research results Q1: Do you have old video tapes at home? (Sample size=2,937) Yes (to SQs)
31.8%
No
68.2%

Q1SQ1: Do you have a working device to play back these old video tapes? (Sample size=934) Yes
62.4%
No (no device or broken device)
37.6%

Combining the two, we get:

19.8%
Yes, but no working player
11.9%
No
68.2%
Q1SQ2: Do you have television programs recorded on these old video tapes? (Sample size=934) Yes, and might want to watch
58.7%
Yes, but don’t particularly want to watch
27.2%
No
14.1%
Q2: Do you have any of these kinds of old photos, film at home? (Sample size=2,937, multiple answer) Undeveloped film or negatives
11.8%
Unsorted developed photos
16.0%
Albums I want to sort out
10.5%
None of the above
69.0%

Which prefecture would one regret never visiting?

Ne, 04/15/2018 - 16:18

This might be a useful survey for visitors to Japan; on a limited budget, where should you visit? goo Ranking asked which prefecture people would regret all their life not visiting.

The top 10 is no real suprise, and Fukuoka is the only place I haven’t been to; Fukuoka city has a quite famous night-time street food culture that I’d like to see, but perhaps not eat as it’s mostly ramen…

15 and 16 are the first mostly-unknown prefectures for me. Toyama has mountains and fluorescent squid, but Shimane is just the back-of-beyond for me. It has a couple of well-known shrines, but so has every other prefecture. Next-door Tottori is 32nd, but it has huge sand dunes that I might be interested in seeing, as well as a quite famous coffee culture.

I put last-place Tokushima into a picture search engine, and here’s the first (well, second; first was a scenic valley
) photo that popped up. This is the traditional dance, Awa Odori, which is performed at an annual festival that I thought was popular.
