Food in Japan

Go to just about any Japanese person's camera, or photo album, or myspace, or mixi account...and no doubt there will be a LOT of pictures of food. They just can't get enough of food over here. And no wonder, when things taste so good.

Some of this stuff...it really is wonderful.Collapse )

Until next time, Japan is still over here, being Japan, being crazy.


In Japan these days, if you don't have a cell phone(or, keitai) you are behind the times. But despite the fact that everyone has a cell phone, people only talk on them very shortly. Think those Cingular commercials with the constant worries about minutes.

What do penguins dream of?Collapse )

And don't miss your dose of daily EngrishCollapse )

Let's continue in a posting manner this year, eh?

Tarako pasta sauce

Tarako pasta sauce, a kind of pasta sauce...with fish eggs in it? Has a bunch of really infectious commercials. I thought I might share. This first one is a good introduction to what I mean by infectious.

Also, I fixed the pictures in my last post, so please check it out again.

Trip to Kyoto - September 2nd

I went to Kyoto on September 2nd with Natsuko and her parents. We visited some sites, ate some delicious food, and sang Karaoke.

"Kyoto Tour" on Google Video
Kansai Gaidai Kyoto tour on Sept. 1, 2006. I took about 2 hours making the movie, so verbal substance shall have to be added later.
I've searched out some pictures to illustrate how I think that Japan will differ from the US based upon no factual evidence whatsoever.

And here we go...Collapse )
