Rules of the Road – Driving in Japan is not for the faint-hearted

Myths in Modern Japan – The Japanese have some peculiar ideas about Japan

I hate pachinko – The most soul-destroying ‘entertainment’ on the planet

j-TV – The single reason I spend more time online

Uncool Biz – It’ll never catch on

The wrong place – How race and crime are linked in Japan

Thought vs. Belief – Nothing but a rant

All work, no play – Look Mum, no life!

I want to ride it where I like – If you thought the roads were dangerous, wait till you try the pavements

Forgiveness – Look who’s coming to dinner

If you go down to the woods today – You’d better be wearing kevlar body armour

    Not related to your wedsite per se, but my grandparents came from the the Kumamoto area from a village called Tateno. I also understand that there is a village called Migita close to the Aso or Oita area. I visited the Kumamoto once several years ago. I would appreciate whatever information or assistance you can provide on the village of Migita or if there are anybody I can contact of the Maruno family (That was my gradmothers maiden name and the family I visited in Tateno several years ago) that still lives in the village of Tateno.
