I remember sitting in a sushi spot in Tokyo and this guy took his phone out and started recording me. Not photographed, recording video. I was thrown way off.

A shame, something must be done to protect these fish. I really wish there was an international group that focused on preservation and sustainability. Overfishing bluefin? Fines and penalties!

If the currency is back up to levels like this permanently, I'd like to see more Made in Japan products. These days most of the stuff I see from them is made in China, Korea, or Mexico and quality has taken a toll.

We are in for an interesting 2015-2020. Lot of tech in infant stages now will change life as we know it. Funny how we're in 2013 though, and it was thought years ago that life would look like the Jetsons now. Not even close.

I get so tired of that photo of her crying, plastered all around Tokyo. This ambassador job is "well deserved".

Crazy how old 38 is in the sports world, and young everywhere else. Too bad for Hideki-san.

As a Mariners fan, I am devastated, but as a fan of Ichiro, I'm glad he gets to play for a ring.

Good news. I own the car (Toyota Aqua) pictured in this article, Japanese quality is unbeatable. I hope they continue to do well with sales.

Nice, my car is pictured. It's hard to find Made in Japan cars anymore, everything is being manufactured offshore. But the trade deficit proves Japan is in quicksand.

At some point the government will have to REALLY provide a 'rebate' for having kids. That and this guy fails to realize Androids and robots will be part of society by then.

Disappointing. I think I remember, maybe 10 years ago, being a teen and watching NHK about the declining birthrate. It's like a rollercoaster that never stops the downhill surge. What can be done about that? Encouraging birth with stimulus or cheaper daycare is a start, but seems like a tall order to get it back up without immigration big-time.
