Just watched the Telly and they showed overseas tourists by the hundreds lining up for Bluefin Tuna and similar delicacies in Tsukiji.
All said it was tasty and they want more.
That much for the fable that 80% is consumed by Japan, traded maybe like Shark-Fin in Hong Kong.
Still have to meet Japanese that can afford Blue Fin Tuna except for the rare occasion.

My friend recently got a great car that has an Auto function and he only needs to keep one hand on the steering wheel to keep it going.
Best thing is the gas milage since it don't use Gasoline/Diesel or Petrol.
Yes, he got himself a Tesla.

I prefer the TV-Series of Das Boot vs the Movie, whivh is a digest of it. Common in many movies(USA too) that when Characters speak in their native language there are no subtitles/translations.
In Japanese version everyone speaks Japanese, which is boring to multilingual viewers who can speak many major languages.

You are aware that the wall is underground to stop the seepage into surrounding soil.
Only an idiot would build an Ice-wall above ground where it is open to the ele!emtd.

Checked the Specs, auto-rotation was never a requirement but it can glide for some distance.
What Tragedy, they served well in other Disaster areas.

Not sure how the calculations are lab/dymo is not enough. Most European cars are tested on a circuit but than the use optimal conditions to get good results.
In short I doubt they test the cars under real road conditions and different driving techniques.

The engines are linked loss of one means reduced performance as the remaiming engine now powers both Rotors but it can still fly.
As was said in Disaster/Rescue speed and time is off the essence, I can see it do mountain, etc Rescue and might be an asset for the Coast Guard too.

Sequel nightmare and spin-ogfs are a blight of the movie industry.
Disney is good at that just look at Star Wars looks like they want to make a separate movie for every main-character.
Look at Avatar 4 sequels been announced but when is the 1st bring released?

Pretty impressive piece of machinery.
Yes, it had some crashes and limitations but most military equip!ment have a worse record.
It is a good craft and works well in Disaster situations as they have shown in previous deployments. Not sure how the MV-22 varies from the CV-22 as the Marines tend to order a modified Version of their Crafts.

Looks to like they simply lengthened the skirt, looks better than the current ones.
As for the colours those are currently in use, ditto for the Boys. Like with most school clothing you get little choice and buy approved ones at certain shops.
At home you need to add name and school badges.

Frak, just looking at that thing makes my Arteries close up ...
And the price is outrageous for a Burger, you can get a full lunch set incl drink for a similar price or 2 sets of curry with as much naan as you can eat.
I thought McD already was bad with their LL-sized Big Mac.

You forgot Makiguch Sensei. ;) Ikeda Sensei is now head of Soka Gakkai International.
Anyway Komeito is Nichiren Buddhism and Yasukuni is Shinto, separate religions with different beliefs.
It"S MEApr. 25, 2016 - 07:02AM JST
Komeito is not Nichiren Shoushu but Soka Gakkai founded but neither would visit the Shrine.
True in the past Nichiren Shoushu was tied with Soka Gakkai, till they split apart due to differences quiet a few decades ago.
No reason for Komeito to visit the Shrine.
