Japan can double its working population with Japanese people and WON'T. This, while discouraging immigration and facing an aging, long lived population. With the birthrate plunging because women are no longer buying the Japanese marriage model, the economy can only degenerate. Sayonara.

A rotating, programmable fan will work for everything but Tropical Nights. Means you turn on the air con at night maybe 6-8 times a year. Worked for me.

Please notice how J. women kneel, with their toes/feet pointed inward under their rear end. They do this their entire lives. Surely it helps explain the nature of their gait. Yes?

Yase, at the base of Mt Hei in NE Kyoto. A Japanese Emperor took refuge there when those who would do him harm were trying to hunt him down. A kind of delayed quid pro quo which a future King would appreciate.

The Japanese court system will find a way to lay some of the blame on the baby for inconveniencing the 68,000 who were delayed. Don't think so? You haven't been in Japan long enough. Ask a Japanese if this will not be so. Their reply: "Demo, shoganai."

When I lived in Japan 20 yrs ago, Okayama-ken had half a dozen places like this scattered around, Very traditional, very cheap for foreigners. Don't miss it. Ura-nihon. "In back" Japan. Rural. Quietly breathtaking. Go.

In the early 90s, my friend lived on the 6th floor of an Apt bldg in Fukuyama. There was a police box next to it. One evening the bosozuku came by AGAIN so he lobbed a few eggs at them. The cops? They came looking for the person who threw the eggs. , During those years I was irritated in general but those ignorant little f..ks pissed me off even more. Having failed to figure out how to get rid of ALL of them at once I went shopping for a bowgun. If no one else was going to handle this then by god I was. Luckily I got hold of myself and opted out. I say luckily. For me and for sure for them. Why those dinks escape the Rule of Harmony is beyond me. Any ideas?
