Re: Japanese Pizza
What's wrong with the Japanese pizzas. They're really good. You should come to Japan and try them before you say
yuck! Why criticize something before you even try it?
By the way, why does every Japanese people or scene or kimonos I see on American movies seem so weird and unreal
and un-Japanese. It's hilarious. Come and visit us.
You'll know what I mean.

Re: Japanese Pizza
Mike, thanks for your prompt response. Yeah, I guess you're right. But I still think something must be done about it. My students come to me nearly every day and ask me to read and translate what is printed on their sweat shirts, pencil cases,pants,shoes,rulers, pencils,notebooks,etc.@(I have 80 students) Can you imagine the stress? I try to make the best of it. But...
whew! They look so sad when I tell them that the English written on their favorite stationery or clothes is wrong and impossible to decipher. So I usually try to make up the best possible translation. As an English teacher, this is very awkward. I feel the students of English language (that is every Japanese student, should be able to see correct English because that is almost always the only chance for them to see English other than at school or juku.

Very funny! I love your site. It's exactly what I was thinking about for a long time. I teach English to children in Japan and they usually come to the class wearing clothes with Engrish printed on them and they bring stationaries with unscrutable,unimaginable,unbelievable and sometimes hilariously undecodable words and sentences. I wish to work to correct these mistakes. How can I find a client?
Can you help me.

Re: Japan by Motorcycle
It took me five days (during break/lunch hour at work) to read all 24 days of your trip. I thought my ten days trip in the 80's from San Francisco to Yellowstone Park in an automobile was "rough". Compare to what you have done, your trip was a real adventure. I had been to Japan a few times; within the big cities of course. I hope I can visit some of the exciting places you have encountered on my future trips to Japan. Thank you for writing this journal, although I am reading this four years after your trip, I felt like I was back in 1999. I truly enjoy reading it. Thanks again.

Re: Choi Kwang Do
A lot of poeple on your site seemed to be confused in reguards to the grading system and in belt testings, as i've read in a few of your comments in your guest book. The Choi Kwang Do grading system is done differently than many martial arts. if you go to a white belt testing where you tend to find many of the younger students in the age range of, oh say 5-8, you'll see that, yes we do pass students who are performing things wrong. stances, techinques, ect. Espically at a white belt rank, and being so young, generally those students are not failed. The achievment of that firts belt, gives them the confidence needed to continue and grow in Choi Kwang do. Also Choi Kwang Do bases its grading system on personal achievment and goals. For instance, when an examiner looks at your yellow belt test and then at your green belt test they would like to see that you have improved, and you are doing your personal best. In raguards to blakc belt testing, it takes a lot just to get into those testings. your instructor must first approve you to test and give you permission to do so. Many students have failed black belt testings. Choi Kwang Do does not just pass anyone. Of course the journey to your black belt is a most enjoyable and educational one. i will be testing for my 2nd degree black belt in november 2003.

Re: Japanese Pizza
about pizzas with boiled eggs - I take it you've never been to Italy and had a Pizza Bismark:
1/2 cup tomato sauce,
2-3 ounces thinly sliced ham
1 egg.
Spread the tomato sauce over the pizza, sprinkle the ham over the sauce, crack the egg over the middle of the pizza, a skitter of olive oil and bake.

Re: Japanese Pizza
Actually, these pizza toppings are closer to the toppings in Italy than the American ones. You can't get American toppings in Italy, but you can get just about any vegitable combination. And yes, they do have some with boiled eggs. When I was there, I was young and only liked 'ham and pineapple', which DOES NOT EXIST THERE! (seriously. Don't even bother asking for pineapple on a pizza, ok? trust me.)
I was up north in January, so they weren't really serving sea-food anyway... but who knows what they do with pizza on the coast...
The only thing I found REALLY strange on this site was the mayonaise. Actually, the whole mayonaise and potato thing was creepy.

Re: Japanese Pizza
Incredible, it really enlightens me on the marvelous possibilities of pizza. When the Orientals take western food into their hand, they so much enrich it with new looks and flavors. This also reminds me of the American barbeque. When the Chinese or Taiwanese do it, they go so far beyond burgers and hotdogs, they'll bbq so much more, shrimps, spicy lamb, Taiwan sausages, tofu, fishball... allow your mind to run wild.

Re: Japan by Motorcycle
Yep, I just finished reading (started last night) your entire 24 day motorcycle trip around Japan. I am envious of your adventure and accomplishment.

During the early years (1976-1979) of my military tour of duty (before getting married), I spent three+ years homeported out of Yokosuka, Japan. As a family we lived on Okinawa for five years from January 1989 to December 1993. Both experiences are quite memorable. I have always longed to return to mainland (Honshu) Japan to revisit old places once again, and to enjoy new adventures.

It sounds like you had quite a memorable experience and something that you probably will never forget or may not be able to experience again.

I'm curious, what were you doing in Japan to begin with? Also, I've read very little about JET, but do the JET teachers make enough earnings to live off of their JET pay to live comfortably in Japan? And how long do these JET teachers spend in Japan?

Thanks for taking the time to put your trip online for us to enjoy and envy - helps me think of the old times I had in Japan. Though I never rode a motorcyle back then, I do now.

Again, thanks for letting me read your Japan exploits. Now to read your other stories.

Re: Japan by Motorcycle
Hi. Have just arrived in Kobe for 6 months - 1 year and am searching for ways to traverse Japan from end-to-end, possibly by motorbike. Really enjoyed reading the full trip diary and the effort you put into creating it on the net. Am looking forward to getting out & about in Japan.

Re: Japanese Pizza
I think that you're food looks disgusting and it probably tastes the same!!! Why are you people soo stupid to put more than one topping to your pizza? I hope that you won't send any of your pizza to Bermuda!!

Re: Japan by Motorcycle
Mike,

Thanks for the pictures and the info re: the tour of Japan by motorcycle. I lived there for almost three years and missed the chance to take the dream trip around Hokkaido, even though I had the bike and the license. Have you any thoughts of returning? I've been posting on bb's trying to find ex-pats (or ex-expats) who want to cruise Hokkaido in August 2003. Let me know. Anyway, great web site!

Thanks,
Robaato

Re: Entire Site
From what you said you arrived in japan when you were a teenager and unless i'm wrong u didn't know how to speak japanese. So my question is how did you get round the language barrier that existed.

Re: Japan by Motorcycle
Hey Michael - loved your pages on Japan by Motorcycle! I've just returned from japan while working/holidaying for a couple of weeks. I used to ride a Spada here in Australia as my first bike, and I'm keen to travel Japan on my Honda VFR (with my wife, if possible). Can you provide me with any insight on what I'd need to sort out before taking on this challenge? I know a little Japanese (looking to learn more) and have friends in Japan, but I get the impression that I should be a bit more fluent.

Re: Japanese Pizza
I was wondering, why do most all of the Pizza dishes come with Mayonaise? I have never seen that before? Please help. Also, I am not sure if you are affilated with the TV Show Iron Chef but if you are, i have a few suggestions for the mystery food. How about, French Fries, Pancakes, or maybe Grilled Cheese Sandwiches! Thank you for your time!
