Re: {̃sU
Good morning It is a racoon dog. Again, it came to the play. It thinks that it becomes English which is strange for "DESU" of the place to have been past 1:2 on the 16th at the Japanese time. Because, it is because a translation is accomplished by the machine. It comes to the play again if not inconveniencing even if it enjoys a conversation here. The friend of zuiun matsuda me is a sculptor of Buddhist image.

Re: Japanese Pizza
It's funny you mention Pizza Studio. Back when I was teaching English in Japan in 1988, my absolute favorite restaurant was Pizza Studio in Tennoji (Osaka.) They made a killer Steak Pizza--I brought all my friends there and was soon being slipped free pizzas. Then they went out of business!

It's nice to see they started up somewhere else! (Or maybe their head office was in Tokyo to begin with--I don't know.)

Great page. I'm getting set to start montrealsushi.com--check in sometime next year.

we didn't have the Web when I was living in Japan (88-93) or I would have started something like you did!

Re: Japan Photos & Essays
Hi Mike!
Great pics and really interesting points of view, I am impressed by your website. I ride Harley Davidson here in Japan, and I will build my own website that introduces many aspects of Japan culture and beauty through my motorcycle trips. It would not be a biker thing, hahaha.
By the way, one of your pics,
this is not fly fishing, as long as I know from my fishing experiences. The fish these anglers look for would be "AYU", that is not trout though it looks alike. And the way they are adopting is "Tomo-Tsuri(fishing)", that takes advantage of the fish's nature. Ayu has it's own territory basically around a rock or big stones bottom of the river, these rocks or large stones give the fish rich moss they feed. So the anglers let the decoy Ayu(alive) intrude each territory and the wild Ayu attacks the decoy to eliminate.
The fishing line has a couple of hooks and the wild Ayu would be caught by the hook while they are attacking the decoys. Skilled anglers let decoys intrude territories so well with their fishing rod controls. You can purchase both decoys and fishing license at the local stores near the river. This is so unique way of fishing that would not be found in other countries. Anyway, you found an interesting scene. Thank you very much for your contribution.
Take care! Meghog

Re: Japan by Motorcycle
Very interesting log you have there(especially since I'm often bored out of my mind at work)! I, too, took a solo-ish trip to Japan during the summer of 1999. It wasn't a motorcycle one like yours but instead with an incredibly handy JR pass :D My solo time was about 20 days, but spent about 7 days in Tokyo to hang out with friends. In the remaining 2 weeks, I visited Hokkaido (Hakodate, Sapporo, Utoro), Nagoya, Osaka, kyoto, and Uji. My one regret of that trip was the lack of time to travel to Kyushuu and Shikoku due to the time restraint, but I intend on doing that this winter! (I have about 10 day)

Re: Japanese Pizza
Thanksgiving - 1988. I lived in Kobe and I was seriously homesick. I decided to go to Pizza Hut for thanksgiving. It was expensive but I figured it was worth it b/c it the pizza was served buffet-style. I would be able to gorge myself... just like your suppose to on T-giving day. I was disappointed when I found they covered all of their pizza with seaweed. They were kind enough to make one without seaweed for me since I was the only white kid in there that day. :-)

You'll also get people who put in an effort to learn and get a lot out of their education. You'll find both types of people in your martial arts classes as well.

I keep "researching" when I see photos...to be sure my drawings are correct. I have a friend that lives in Shanghai, China that I just got a funny letter from and wanted to tell her about the jinglish website I found (last month) that is a hoot!...that's why I was poking around here today.

I have a 1970 Midget and enjoyed driving it for about a year before I decided to tear it apart. I have the rocker panels, door posts, and floor pans replaced and have gone through the engine and transmission. I am eager to buy the body panels so I can take it to a body shop and have them replaced and have the car painted. The car seems to have been taken care of pretty well. I think the engine had been gone through before. I keep wondering, though, how do people fund these kind of projects? I am a mechanic and don't make enough to buy body panels, for example, without taking out a loan or else saving for the next five years. Do most people just borrow the money? I'm not trying to be nosy, I would just like to know so if that is what I do I don't have to feel guilty.

Re: Choi Kwang Do
Hi, I'm now a yellow belt in Choi Kwang Do and worked hard to achieve my grade but I really want to know how serious Grading is.

Having watched a grading session which included children from about 5 years of age and upwards all of which got whichever belt they were grading for despite not using correct stances/moves etc. Does this ultimately mean they could reach black belt status using incorrect techniques? Is grading just an opportunity to fleece us students of money?

I enjoy my classes but I really would like to know if the belts are worth the colour they are dyed.
