What I miss the most ... What I miss the most ... What I miss the most ...
I miss Onsen 温泉 (Hot Springs) base public bath. They are warm, relaxing and refreshing. Going to visit Onsen is the first thing in my mind when I arrive in Japan.

What is your thought?

Capsule Hotel

thread
This is the prototype I made f... This is the prototype I made few years ago. Capsule Hotel Capsule Hotel Capsule Hotel Capsule Hotel
Why spend hundreds of dollars (tens of thousands of yen) when all you need is a warm comfortable and safe place to sleep. I have been a fan of so called capsule hotels in Japan. And I really thing the concept should work in the US as well specially for younger generations.

What do you think?

Gara-Kei is the name people use in Japan to describe non-smartphone type cellular phones.

Why is it called Gara-Kei?

Gara is a shor for "Galapagos"
Kei is a short for "Keitai" (Transportable Phones)

So if you have old frip phones, you are Galapagos Keitai user.

Pros and Cons of Shinkansen 新幹線

thread
Pros and Cons o... Pros and Cons o... I was doing 160 mph ... That i... I was doing 160 mph ... That is fast.
Connecting Tokyo and Osaka (500 km or 320miles) in about 2 and half hours, Shinkansen is a very reliable and fast and comfortable transpiration even when you compare it to the airlines. Jets fly from Tokyo to Osaka in about 50 minutes, but you need to take train, bus or taxi to get to the downtown area whereas Shinkansen gets you to the middle of the city. That is all good.

But there is one drawback I have to mention. Because Shinkansen has no competitor, the price is fixed and it is rather high. Unless you buy airline ticket at the last minute, airlines offer cheaper transportation between Tokyo and Osaka.

One more thing. Shinkansen have not accident since it started operation back in 1964. That is over 53 years without an accident.

Hollywood Remake of Japanese Classic

thread
Hollywood Remake of Japanes...
The "Ghost in the Shell" is a very popular anime series as many of you know already This year, Hollywood took the story and remakes it to the large screen.

Did you see it?
Did you like it?

Hollywood tends to change the story (a bit) to make it more Americanized. By doing that, they killed the story line. I see this at Hollywood version of GODZILLA movies.

Unfortunately you cannot use this duty free offer to hotels, restaurants or other services and good you consume in Japan.
