Binder for stage photos


Because I promised Kel that I will show her my stage photo binder, I might as well post it here.

Since I recycled my old electronics at Staples, they gave me store credit so I decided to look around and found this binder and its sheet protector XD These are exactly what I had been looking for a whole time. Say goodbye to the envelope where I kept the stage photos.



The sheet protector is 5.5in by 8.5in (14cm by 21.6cm) and bigger than a normal stage photo. But hey, it's not that bad, isn't it ;) I bought the batch of 25 sheets in case they stop producing this special size

Lesson learned - get my lazy ass off the house, walk around the city, exercise, and I will find the hidden germ lol hopefully, this binder will be full of Taiga photos someday~~~

Anything that has Taiga in it becomes lovelier.

I don't know how I missed this earlier. So this is the binder you were telling me about? Nice! Now your stage photos have a nice new home. Mine are are still in a stack in an envelope. Shall do something about that soon.

Pssst it's hidden gem. Hopefully there will be more than one binder full of Taiga photos someday... photos from concerts, stage shows or whatever else he can call his "own".

How do you get your hands on the new taiga shop photos? I bought one to send to you over the summer but you already got them all haha...
I know the feeling of wanting to put the photos you love properly in binders/photo albums so you can see it properly every time. I have like 3 big stacks I don't know what to do with cause I can't find any good photo albums that are the right size!!!:(

I usually buy photos or any Japanese goods through kaji-jshop@lj (I used to use je-goods before but she is slow in shipping out goods, it might take several months). For regular shop photos, I use the albums bought from Daiso when I went to Japan. It was a tough one to find a good fit for stage photos though because of their weird size. I will show you the shop photo album I have later if you want :) how was your Japan trip this time?

Okay, I'm using kaji-jshop this time cause I heard new photos are out! Could I check with you to see if that's true?

Did you buy a lot of albums haha? I found good ones at Daiso a couple years ago in Seattle, but haven't since then. I wanna see the shop photo album you have!!:) Mine's ugly, but it has a cover so i'm good:)

My Japan trip was soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much fun! Are you interested in seeing the photos I got this summer? (I only have 48 in possession which is much easier to take photos of than the near 1000 photos I have in my collection)

Sorry for the super-late reply :( I have been extremely busy with work. I heard about new photos but I don't think they are Juniors'

Here are three albums I'm using now

There are another 3 that I save for later. Got all of them from Daiso for such a cheap price ♥

I would love to hear more about your trip (and photos too of course). Which cities did you stop by? My friends and I also plan for Japan trip on April to see sakura in full blossom :D

How do you know when new junior photos are out? I'd love to get them with you!!! ><

Oh, they fit perfectly!!! I have two like that, three je photo albums and one that just doesnt fit so i use it for paparazzi photos and photos I wanna sell. I have more photos than there are pockets tho, so I'm kinda annoyed that I haven't been able to sell :(
I got my two from Daiso, but haven't been able to find good ones since then :( especially cute ones that you have hahaha
Would you be willing to get some for me?! Of course, I'll pay you back!

Honestly, my parents wouldn't let me travel outside of Tokyo much so I mostly only went to nearby cities. So, besides Tokyo, I went to Osaka for the concert, Chiba (my friend's house to make uchiwa for the concert, and to shop for matching clothes), Yokohama/Kanagawa, and I think that's it....... ><

How long do you plan on staying there? Do you plan on going other places other than just sakura blossoming? Maybe you'd be able to catch a gamushara J's Party that Taiga's in!:)

I mainly follow Taiga fans on weibo and they update if there's any Taiga photo. About other juniors or debut groups, I check kaji-jshop's twitter. She teaches in Japan and knows Japanese so she's pretty fast about Johnny's shop photo updates.

I got the albums from Daiso in Japan so I can't help you buying them now ^^; Japanese community in Colorado is really small, it's hard to get any magazines or any Japanese goods here.

Last time I went to Japan, I attended the Juniors' baseball tournament and KAT-TUN's concert. This time, I'm afraid I can't go to any Johnnys' events :( none of my friends are interested in Japanese idols, and I don't know anyone living in Japan either. Oh, we only stay for 10 days (work doesn't allow us to be away for too long T_T)

oh.... kaji-jshop told me that she doesnt live in Tokyo so she might not be able to get them anyway even if the new ones are out :(
and i dont use twitter >< would you be able to tell me if new ones are out? i'm particularly interested in Yasui Kentaro and Casey Anderson!

oh i see >< sorry about that. I guess I'll look around more here.

Juniors' baseball tournament?! o.O I never knew that existed! Is it the sports day thing? And what year KAT-TUN concert was this? I didn't know you're also interested in KAT-TUN!!! Are you still a fan? Can't you still go alone even if your friends aren't interested?! >< Even tho I know it's more fun with friends...

I will let you know. Usually, juniors' photos are out after some big junior-related concerts/stageplay like Summary, Crea, Playzone, etc. I barely use Twitter but kaji-jshop's twitter is not locked so you can read it without an account.

I wrote a crappy report after coming back from the tournament. Yup, that sports day thing ;) I didn't know why it was called "junior" while the main participants were debuted guys. I went to KAT-TUN's Chain concert in Nagoya. KAT-TUN was the group that got me into fandom so they (6-nin) hold a special place in my heart ♥ I still listen to their music but something's lacking in their recent songs. I guess its rock-pop sound? I don't like Jin's music after he left Johnnys (too much autotune). However, Koki's INKT album is quite good. I would love to go but none of my friends have been to Japan (or any other country) before so it's worrisome to leave them by themselves. Well, I love Japan not because of Johnnys only so I don't mind exploring the country and its culture while I'm there.

Thank you! It's just that LJ is my only source to JE news so I am slow in finding out stuff, especially about juniors. So, I'm really grateful that you would let me know!:)

Weird. omg, I went to NMP in Taiwan and it was awesome!!! Really far tho, so I couldn't see much but it was awesome just the same. Kamenashi lead me into the JE fandom so he is the special one, haha. I haven't listened to their songs since Koki left tho, because I'm afraid that I'll be disappointed by their lack of rap. I really like their music until he left tho, and still listen to them. I'm just not ready for their recent music yet. Where did you listen to Koki's INKT? I couldn't find any download links ><

Ah I see. I guess if you go to the most popular places, you can still stop by Johnny's shop or something too...... Some of my favorite places (without having to know Japanese) were,
-Asakusa (imperial palace, kaminarimon, senso-ji temple, skytree) (go skytree at night)
-Tokyo Tower (go at night)
-Tokyo Station (there's this really good ramen place there but i forgot the name of it >< It's at the famous street......)
-Odaiba (there's a really good hiyashi chuuka place inside. I only went for half a day but i bet you can go for a whole day)
-Shinjuku (apparently there's a really good indian place called Hatti at West Shinjuku, also there's a tsukemen place that's really good)
-Tsukiji Fish Market
-Fuji Mt/Nakao Mt
-Fujikyuu
-Ameyoko/Nezu (it's a really nice walk but it's really short)
-Akihabara (if you like anime/manga)
