Posted in: Anton Yelchin: From Terminator to Tokyo See in context

Please. He was silly in Terminator even with the iconic line "Come with me with you want to live", and his Russian accent in Star Trek was a little rich.

I agree with Noborito, the 1-Foreigner limit is completely racist, but as anyone who's here for long enough may agree, kind of standard fare for Japan.

Posted in: Fujisawa beach cleaning fundraiser planned for March 14 See in context

I grew up in Shonan, where it steadily grew from 1980 (born in 74 but cant remember so far back) and around 90 stopped going into Shonan waters... It cant be denied that its the people on the beach that are messy. The other problem is the water is completely polluted by diffused factory waste drawn there by river effluence. If you google Earth the darkness is clearly visible. Google earth is how i pick my beach destinations in Japan, btw. You can zoom out and see where the clearest blue is, then zoom in and find the nearest station and then pack your wetsuit and take the Densha down there. woo hoo! Summer's coming! see you at the best beach in Japan - Niijima and Shikinejima Islands!

Burger King is giveing them away for free, and they're crap. The whole time I was wishing I was drinking Calpis instead.

Dean, Perhaps Ive made too much of the punctuation etc., but as a professional instructor (read: a whinging, snobby TESOL MA degree holder ha ha), I'm a stickler! Obviously, you make offer some very intuitive comments on the state of the industry. It is tought to write to an audience of pissy instructors... I disagree with some posters about needing Japanese to start a company - just hire a J. My personal rule of thumb is that if you want to earn more, you have to start with ownership. That certainly is difficult to achieve for the typical Gaijin (sorry, Ive got no problems with the terms Gaijin, Gaikojin, foreigners)here in Tokyo. Let me return to this post later, must go to class...

Dean, Seriously. You should have a copywriter review your work before submitting for publication. You mix up the word "Tenant" and "Tenets", you misused an apostrophe in idiosyncrasy's, and your sentence construction is...well, speaks for itself. Please for your sake, have a NATIVE English professional rewriter correct your future articles. This article and the previous one are not doing you or your business justice.
