My Trip to (the sidewalk in front of) Nintendo’s Headquarters in Kyoto

For some, it’s no big deal and/or pointless. For others, it’s like a pilgrimage to Mecca. I’m not sure what exactly standing on the sidewalk outside Nintendo HQ in Kyoto meant to me, but I’m glad I did it.

The neighborhood surrounding the headquarters is quiet and typical of an off-the-beaten-path Japanese neighborhood. There are cute houses, large apartment buildings, and a handful of convenience stores and restaurants. The most remarkable place in the neighborhood is probably the plum field.

Even more unassuming than the neighborhood itself are the Nintendo buildings. Grey, quiet, and pretty much totally walled-off, you’d really have no idea that brilliant, creative, and insanely colorful games were being made inside.

So without any further ado, here are the pictures my wife and I took outside the headquarters and recently-completed new development building.
