I am on the jet-coaster but I control the ride.
People learned fast that I don't respond instantly to e-mails or voice-mails, that is for the few that got my personal contact details.
Company said they want my personal keitai number, told if you want me to be in standby supply your own phone and pay me a standby allowance. Subject was dropped.

Forgot to add. Urns in Japan usually hold the bones and not ashes and thus are quiet larger.
To have your ashes spread requires a second step where the bones are ground down after cremation(done in the west).

Yes, there are laws and limits as to how and when ashes can be disposed off.
You can't just do anywhere and anyhow.
The boat-trip also have a ceremony, etc on board.
You can keep urns at home of course, many do.

Lived 47yrs without a smart watch, most likely will continue to do so.
Might come in handy to monitor health and similar data if I ever need that function.
My Nexus 7 can already take my pulse and blood pressure though.

Men's 'Pectorial Aid' somehow sounds like a fail. ;)
Of course neither fundraiser goes below the belt.

The kanamara festival is the last of many, the us occupation administration really messed up Japan by trying to enforce western mores and ideals.
The banned a lit of festivals, made prostitution illegal, separated sexes in public baths, etc.
But don't worry there are Shinto shrines solely for female parts where the can pray for bigger boobs, increased fertility and those female parts are openly displayed there and yo be touched during prayer.

I agree with others travels are to explore/experience different things.
Recall staying on an remote Greek island and for 3 weeks we never saw another foreigner or heard anything except Greek.
Not one for the Club Med holidays where people hardly ever leave the camp,

Rather than life-action of the anime I would prefer to see the original Lupin Arsene books made into movies.
One of the reasons why the anime in France goes by Edward and not Lupin.

Make that kuromaguro on their plates, not sure if the 75% is still true with sushi have been spread now across the globe and increasing demand for bluefin and yellowfin as they are the ones used mostly for sushi/sashimi.

Kiki is NOT a remake of the anime but a different telling from the book that the anime is based on.
Seen some really good life-action adaptations but the majority turned out men.

The price increase will only affect the bluefin tuna prices, other types of tuna should not be affected. The types that end up as canned tuna in store across the globe.
My local sushi shop stopped serving bluefin 3 years ago and now serves yellowfin instead.

Let's hope other nations will follow suit.
Australia and NZ might complain as they mostly catch young Tuna to stock their Tuna farms.
Saw a report on telly soon and it is amazing how many non-japanede think that Japanese eat sushi, sashimi and tuna daily.

Most cars are now 2+3.
Said we used to drive in an Alberta GT from the IT school to our teachers company daily.
We = 5 male adults plus 5 briefcases and computer printouts, etc.
Can be done.
