kwatt,

They had to crash lands NOW. As I mentioned in my previous post, Kaguya didn't have enough power to even orbit the moon since it ran out of the energy source, therefore the planned crash.

They seemed to enjoy destroying it as if children were sick and tired of the same toy.

If you know a little bit of physics, you won't come up with such a silly guess. The satellite just didn't have enough power to escape the Moon's gravitational field. Well done Kaguya.

Very beautiful picture! Pregnant women look as beautiful as non-pregnant women. Those who hate to see pregnant women must think how your mom felt when she encountered men like you while you were inside her uterus.

gogogo: Roppongi is clearly not reclaim land since it's on a hill. Probably you mean Hibiya area. Even Ginza or Nihonbashi area are not reclaim land. You can check maps from Kamakura period for these. The flat terrain in Tokyo is mostly deltas created by rivers including Tone river.

Now I see what you mean by inside of the bay. I just thought that entire waterfront areas in Tokyo are inside the Tokyo bay.

gogogo: I said that there will be no landfill. I don't understand the latter part. What do you mean by "inside of the bay"?

BigInJapan:

Also, telling that Tokyo is excellent in terms of accommodation is a joke. Cheap hotels with good access for transportation is rare.

I think you know little about Tokyo, or Japan, in terms of accommodation. There are many cheap hotels close to metro stations if you can't afford staying at a high-quality hotel. For budget travelers, Toyoko Inn is pretty good.

If you really hate to take a crowded train, learn to avoid rush hours. It'd be much more comfortable.

Olympic stadium on the city’s central waterfront

OH crap... where is this going to be built? I have a feeling in that new landfill in tokyo bay.... anyone have any info?

The main stadium will be built at the former site for a convention center in Harumi district, just across Sumida River from Tsukiji. There will be NO landfill.

mnemosyne23,

First, I think your observation of candidate cities is basically very objective and thorough.

However, there are drawbacks. First and foremost, the Japanese opinion on "gaijin." It's no secret that Japan is a very ethnocentric country, and an influx of foreign athletes and visitors into the already crowded city of Tokyo might cause undo friction.

This is totally a groundless claim and not acceptable. Was there friction between the Japanese and gaijin when Tokyo hosted Olympics in '64 and Nagano hosted Winter Olympics in '98? I guess NO. If you live in Japan long enough, you know that the Japanese enjoy Olympics a lot. Having chance to see foreign athletes will be just an exciting thing.

timorborder: why don't you google his name? It's quite funny that some foreigners here want to know if a person is Zainichi or not when the Japanese makes no distinction. If it's the opposite, there'd be huge outcry.

pathat: With the Navy Captain in the middle wearing the "Kyokujitsu ki," he looks more likely to say, "Climb Mt. Niitaka," than to be chasing pirates off the coast of Somalia.

Obviously you don't know that JMSDF has been using the flag for more than 50 years.

Beelzebub: It seems to have been inspired by Milan-style veal cutlets, but no self-respecting Italian chef would smear Kewpie mayonnaise on his food.

No. It was obviously inspired by Tonkatsu, which has been eaten by the Japanese for about a hundred years.
