I am sure that many of my readers find Japan utterly fascinating for many reasons. My fascination is never stronger than when I examine their public transportation system. The Japanese Rail system is a model which we will all have to adopt, eventually. It is clean, fast, and efficient. It may be expensive, but the additional expenses to operate cars in Japan tend to offset the annoyance of having to pay between $2 and $10 for a one-way trip.
I must apologize to my readers for the neglect to the trips and pics section. Unfortunately, the album software got corrupted, and as a result, I had to update the links to all my pictures.
The process is now complete, and you should not encounter any more broken links to pictures. If you do, feel free to leave a comment or email me.
This guy comes off as a Japanese apologist, but his post is definitely interesting and worth reading. I saw this book when I was in Japan in August, but didn’t pick it up – I regret it now. It sounds like an elaborate troll by someone trying to provoke discussion. However it looks like it, like all great trolls, has found itself lost on the idiotic right wing parties of Japan and the moronic Korean Pride movement.
You might note I call them both moronic. That is mainly because they both need this to survive:
“Bow before the flag and give me my flatscreen TV, morons, or I’ll take my troops home and let the Chinese and North Koreans deal with you.” – America
Gotta love how people get distracted by petty history when they have bigger problems at hand.
