I have been playing airsoft for three years. From 2014, I play airsoft more often, like once to twice a month at least. Usually I go to an airsoft field with same gears. Therefore, if you find me at airsoft field, feel free to say “hi”!
My BDU(Battle Dress Uniform)
I always wear “DPM Desert” BDU. DPM stands for “Disruptive Pattern Material” and this type for camouflage uniform is used by British military. I choose this BDU for a reason. There are lots of airsoft player in Japan and they wear famous BDU patterns such as “MultiCam“, ” ACU“, and “Kryptek“. I did not wanted to dressing alike, so I choose the “DPM Desert”.
My airsoft gun
I own several airsoft guns, and I will introduce my two of my collection. ” KSC RM4 CQB ERG” This is my primary weapon for most of my games. This airsoft gun has recoil system which mimics recoil fromactual assault rifle (however, it does not recoil like an actual gun). “Tokyo Marui MP5SD6”
This airsoft gun is really compact and light weight. Plus, it has been costumed to high rate of fire. From my record, the best was 29 shots in a second.
Did you know you can play an airsoft game in middle of Tokyo? There is the place called “ASOBIBA Akihabara” which is the airsoft field in placed in Akihabara, Tokyo. Akihabara is known as “Mecca of Anime”, but also there are lots of Airsoft, Electronic, and food places in there. Since I am a huge fan of an airsoft, I played an airsoft with my friends from 19:00 to 22:00. ASOBIBA owns lots of airsoft fields in Japan. One in Nihonbashi Osaka, Osu Nagoya, and Sakuragicho Kanagawa. Since Akihabara field is a new one, lots of people showed up when we played. There were over 50 people who joined the night game in Akihabara field. Here is a footage of airsoft game with my GoPro camera.
The open hours in ASOBIBA Akihabara
On weekdays: 16:00~22:00
On weekends: 10:00~16:00, 16:00~22:00 (Morning/Night games is separated)
You can also book the charter game and play with your friends or coworkers. If you are interested in to play some game in ASOBIBA, let me know! I would like to help you out to join this exciting sports!
Me at yesterday’s work. I have not recorded anything with my GoPro since I did not played game. My work was to do a marshal of the charter game. What marshal do is to keep the time for each game, set up items for players and so on. 昨日の自分。頭にGoPro付けてますが、何も撮影していないので飾りでした。私はゲームのマスターを務め、時間経過の報告をしたり、ゲームで使うアイテムを用意したりしていました。
The customers brought spicy soup to field with heater, rice cooker and plates! Me and our coworker got some too! It was de-li-cios, since we are working at outdoor field, so the body was craving for some hot stuff! 今回のお客様たちはチゲ鍋を持参していらっしゃいました。IHヒーターも持参してきてお昼は温かチゲ鍋を用意していました。作りすぎてしまったとの事で、お裾分けしていただきました。寒い中では体が温かく辛い食べ物を欲していたので、旨さ倍増でした！
While I was doing marshal in the game, I found out there are two Razer girls Japan were here‼ I’m fan of Razer product and I had the sticker on my MP5SD6. 今回のゲームにはなんとRazerガールジャパンのお二人がいらっしゃってました！僕はRazer製品のファンなので自分のMP5SD6にRazerのシールを貼っていました。
They asked me about I’m a fan of Razer product. Indeed I am! I asked them to take picture with my gun and got their signature on my Surface! Thanks to Razer girls Japan!! If you are interested them, here are the link. “Razer Girls Japan Saki Yoshida“& Yuka Kuramoti“ 僕はRazer製品のファンなので彼女たちのサインと写真を頂きました！もしご興味があれば彼女たちをチェックしてみて下さい。”Razer ガールズ ジャパン 吉田早希 & 倉持由香”
After work 仕事終わり
One of my best friend showed up after my work hours. 仲の良い友人が顔を見せに来てくれてました！
He was about to leave Tokyo for shot time to go snow boarding in his hometown. We went to burger place near my workplace called “Sonny’s House“. I ordered Cheese Burger and my buddy ordered Chicken burger with Salsa. I will say my burger was better than his, and he agreed. 彼は夜行バスで地元に戻る夜行バスが夜遅くに出る為、時間つぶしがてらに一緒にご飯を食べに行きました。まず最初に職場の近くにあるバーガー屋さん”Sonny’s House”に行きました。僕はチーズバーガー、彼はチキンバーガーを頂きました。味はチーズバーガーが上回ったと思い、彼に食べてもらうと彼もチーズバーガーのがうまいと言っていました(笑)
After finishing up the burgers, we went to Akihabara. My buddy told me there is a good Ramen place in Akihabara, so we went there. Since its Chinese new year, lots of people from China, Taiwan, and Hong-Kong were in Akihabara for shopping. We went the Ramen store called “Menya Musashi“ ハンバーガーを食べ終わった後はいつもの秋葉原に。友人がおいしいラーメン屋さんを紹介してくれる事になったので、そのお店に行ってきました。麺屋武蔵 巖虎というラーメン屋さんにお邪魔して、僕はラーメン、彼はつけ麺をオーダー。濃ゆい味かと思ったら、ほんのり柑橘系？の香りがあって美味しかった！ただ帰り際に一言。「ここつけ麺屋なのでなんでラーメン頼んだの？(笑)」 私はラーメンのが食べたかったので、そこはラーメン屋だと思ったの一点張り！
It was a long day, but I had full satisfactory! Yay!! 一日長かったけれど充実した一日でした！！
Since I was very busy lately, I couldn’t update my blogs. I’m working as airsoft field staff in Tokyo. The reason I got this job is OBVIOUSLY I like playing airsoft lol
I have made team on my own and lot of people have joined my team. Also found an alliance team for my team.
For those people who are not familiar with airsoft, the airsoft is a sport with airsoft guns which shoots plastic BBs. Its like “Call of Duty” and “Battle Field” in real life. We play team death match, domination, free-for-all like hose games. But every person plays in different styles.
Here is an example photo of my teams. Some of my team mates wear different kinds of camouflage clothes in other words, BDU(Battle Dress Uniform). One of my team mate wears suits, and another guy wears clothes like silk worm.
My BDU is called “DPM desert Camo” This BDU is used in British military. Yes, its a royal army BDU! Also bring cup of tea in the battle field. I’m using customed Tokyo Marui’s MP5SD6 and play airsoft game as an attacker.
The role of an attacker is to push and secure the area of operation(AO). On early game, the attackers will runas quick as possible to secure the area for our team. After securing AO, we fight with enemies by shooting tons of BBs. Our job is to bring other player such as heavily armed players and snipers. Which means we are like a Rangers.
“Rangers lead the way!”
Recently, I bought GoPro Hero3+ Silver edition, so I’m recording airsoft game footage and post it on Internet. Liking video will help me and also I’m bringing more videos, so please leave a comment if you are interested in or suggestions, Thanks!!
