In Taiwan, we saw adverts for Kitty-chan toilets (both cistern and the bowl)

But agreed, this is nuts

Why is no one questioning how it took 300 people 6 hours to find him 50m away from his house?

Poor kid.

Pfft. There is no snow on the road. Can't be that cold. I still see plenty of people up here riding through deep snow and on icy roads.

I'm so thankful that I live here. Every weekend there is somewhere beautiful to explore.. and then winter comes and it's snowboarding every weekend. Going to be hard to leave this place one day..

5%? I think you're a little off.

I thought Japan was 99.9% Japanese. 0.05% Chinese a little bit of Korean/SE-Asian. A bit less South American. And even less European (Caucasian)

Eitherway, apart from the length, the jeans here fit pretty well, but I'm only a moderate 32" waist.

But, when will it come to Sapporo? It's great being able to find jeans/jackets that are long enough (and still fashionable and cheap)

Posted in: Fast food places like McDonald's, Wendy's, Burger King, KFC, etc, are frequently criticized. What do you think of them? See in context

My nearest McDonalds is a 90 minute drive. I like to grab a cheeseburger or two (and what ever new wacky burger they have on special) whenever I make a journey to the big smoke. It gives a feeling of home eating the processed garbage food. (Mosburger doesn't cut it)

I just wish they had a Burger King in Hokkaido..

Oh, and up until 5-6 years ago, my town had an organic/free range KFC using local chickens and the colonels spices. It's still there, but it's no longer affiliated with KFC

Oh, ハーフ not ニューハーフ. With a movie with a name like "Crossing Over" I thought she was half something else.. (until I read the second two paragraphs)

We drove through on Saturday night. They were all still parked in their garages, but they were still really impressive. Next year I'll have to travel down to watch the parade.

Posted in: Canon EOS 5D Mark II awarded top honors in Japan's premier photo industry awards See in context

20man is nothing. If I shot Canon, I'd have bought one. I'm just hoping this spurs something better than the D700 from Nikon. That or a significant price drop.

There is an 'unoffical' JET race to hitch-hike to Kyoto every year during Golden Week. Friends from as far north as Wakkanai have made the challenge.

Posted in: Ways to fly cheaper and hassle-free with pets See in context

Question for the JT editorial staff, though; what makes you think this article about flying animals around in the US has any relevance for Japan?

I wondered the same thing myself..

Moderator: Some 70% of our readers reside outside of Japan and a big percentage of those live in the U.S.
