Asia in Amsterdam

Topic: Photo shoots

With all those MSX users flying off to Japan lately, I thought it would be nice to find some nice Japanese / MSX related places in my own town to spend some time at and share the good places with you. Because most places that contain some Japanese culture also contain stuff from other Asian countries (China, Korea and Thailand to name a few) "Asia in Amsterdam" seemed more appropriate title than "Japan in Amsterdam". Still, my focus lies on Japanese culture, and each location must have at least some Japanese / MSX culture to be added to this report.

I called Robert Kersbergen (old MSX user, colleague and a good photographer) and asked him to help me make the photo shoots. Luckily he liked the idea too and found some time to help me out. Because of the current weather situation in Holland, and the amount of locations we wanted to visit, this report will be continued later on. We will add more locations and photo’s when we find the time for it. If you live in the Netherlands and know some good places in the Randstad too, don´t hesitate to drop us a mail! We might visit them next time. All addresses visited are mentioned within the report.

Read the rest of this report here and please take a look at the photoshoot too. Happy reading!

The OCS Bookstore under the Okura used to sell MSX magazines (MSX Fan and MSX Magazine), it would be cool if they started selling MSX Magazine again Smile

This is the first edition of a series. So, Wagamama (, low price good food) will surely be featured on one of the next episodes. ^^;
