Or at least severely throttled. For the past few weeks I've had trouble getting onto Deviant art. According to Viewdns.info (viewdns.info/chinesefirewall/?…) , I should be able to access this site. Greatfire.org (en.greatfire.org/) and my computers (from several different locations, not just at home) say otherwise. I can get on with my VPN (as I'm doing now) but that's a pain especially since it seems to cut out every 10 mins.

This may sound like an odd request considering where I'm making it but is there anyone else around in China who's had similar problems? Or anyone who might know more than me?

I'm a NZ-born astrophysics graduate but I'm also interested in East Asian calligraphy and painting. I'm currently teaching English here in Inner Mongolia.
I want to become much better at calligraphy so I'm happy to receive any and all comments and feedback.

You're very welcome.

I'd like a chance to go back to Hakodate if I get the chance. Sounds like you had the opposite problem to me; when I went to Goryokaku, the sky was a lot clearer. I did get some interesting photos at Hakodateyama; the clouds somehow made the cable car look like a submarine.

I don't think I've had the chance to see more than a few goshuin. And if so, they would've all been in museums.

Ah, for goshuin you can actually get them at virtually all shrines and temples. Some places even have more than one as they offer it for a particular pilgrimage ect. In most cases you can see the monk/priest preforming the calligraphy. In order to get them you require a goshuicho and need to ask for it. You can at the most major temples/shrines see people lined up for them but otherwise for all other locations you need to ask for it. In the case of local family temples this will sometimes result in you being asked inside the home attacked to the temple and given tea while waiting for the goshuin . The cost is generally 300JP, some places will ask for that amount directly others will wait to see if you know that it should be that amount and only in the case of Osaki Hachimangu Shrine did they actively refuse to accept any payment. Note that there is only particular locations where the books (goshuicho) to then have your goshuin placed in can be obtained. This site can help you find places that have the books: www21.atwiki.jp/shuinn/m/pages…
