For each 10000 runners there could be some hundreds that thought the road is for them and not for the tourists, always happened in every part of the world. Running counterwise the tourists? This is hard, the runners go to both sides!!!
Solution: Open a road specific for the runners, however they must treat it like it is a running road. As sometimes happened in occidental parks where the space or events defined for runners (not runs, just when the goverment closes the street to allow free walking around) the place began to be filled with bikes, skateboards and other stuff that put in danger the people that have fun on foot.

From the list, I only do not have the chance to eat in Subway´s and Krispy Kreme in 2005, from the others my two favorites where Lotteria and Freshness Burger, indeed, I had a Freshness close to my home in Kanazawa and I really enjoyed to eat there, the only problem against McDonalds was the price, but in the other way, I can relax and enjoy a hamburger and a trendy coffee while reading magazines for free... beat that Ronald!

Nice one... makes me remember the old annoucements of the Tourism Office in Mexico with the music where the epic landscapes and the music really invites the viewer to visit the places featured in the video. This one really does the work even when adding some fantastic anime shots... and makes the idea that K-On is one of these animes that reflects some of the life view in anime...

Hope Mexico and Japan keep the good relationships in all the ways, that Mexicans know that Japan is something more than videogames and anime, is a country that can share a lot of great things with our nation. BTW the spelling of our president name is funny, without the ñ his name sounds like "shame"

Melon pan, I always remembered when my partners and me, walking around Himeji, find a stand of Melon pan, and everybody though that the bread that they sell has a melon flavor, so we decided to buy some. The surprise was big for us when the flavor was vanilla, then we asked why they called melon pan, it was because of the form of Melon (that in Mexico the bread gets the name of Concha, that mean "shell" in English due to be closer of a turtle shell). We just laughed at the reply and we left eating our conchas.

Once I entered the woman's cab without knowing about that rule. When I realized that all women were staring at me with a What the...? I realized my mistake and I decided to put my eyes on floor until next station where I moved out to the next car.. In Mexico there is also this rule, but as long as several women take their children to school, male kids below 12 are also allowed. However, Mexican authorities found that there were also female sex offenders.. yes, lesbian offenders.

And, BTW, Who is really interested to go to Tokyo Disneyland? Americans have two Disney parks, do they really need to go to Tokyo to see another Disneyland? I can understand of the Asian tourists as long as probably they have very far America from there. And the people that comes to Japan from Occident, I can bet that they would enjoy more an anime-themed park than Disneyland.

Hmm, from my experiences in Japan I could say that Tokyo is really a very populated city where I do not want to live and I decided to keep it as the surprise city that can be visited 2-3 days and then leave for a period and come back later. I mean, moving around in the tourist spots of Tokyo is fine, a friend, herself a Japanese travel guide, made me like the best places of the Tokyo area, I just ask her "Do the choices, I only want to go to Kamakura, I leave the rest to you", and she showed me the best places of Kamakura and some nice places of Tokyo like Odaiba and Omotesand, as a plus she lead me to Yokohama. When I took the decisions the first move was almost a disaster, but I enjoyed the few places I had the chance to see. In the last two trips I was more focused to see specific places like Akiba, Chiba and Harajuku, it was not hard for me to enjoy these places at all.
