LOL...I was scared to open the "Spoiler":p

 

That place at night and nearby feel as sketchy as anyplace I've been. Your chance of robbery and violent crime is far less but it's got all the trappings of such a place

... I'm going to throw this out there, how many traps do you run into over there? You know, men dressed as women looking for men...

I think that lifestyle is in clubs/izakaya/mama bars and not out in public....I think??? I imagine in other countries it's on the corner but in Japan it's in the closet...or the bar around the corner.

Maybe it's better for some of these stuff better be hidden with a NSFW clause.

I never lived in Japan but the company I used to work for sent me to Tokyo for 4 to 6 weeks at a time. I would return for 2 weeks then back there again for 4 weeks. This happened in one year. That's how I experienced life in Tokyo. Imagine going into a restaurant and telling the waitress what you want by either pointing at the picture in the menu or the plastic model by the window.

Man I still do that.....followed with a polite onegaishimas and a mini head/shoulder bow and make a point to find the cook and say oishii if it was. No problems at all

 

 

I'm about to host my annual Summer BBQ

Can't decide between the Pig or the Prime Rib? Hula or no Hula? Magic show? Cotton candy? Shaved Ice? Soft Cream?

I do fine with my limited Japanese skills:p

Tremors, they are common. With so many trains, even bullet trains, how do they stay on the tracks? One time me and my colleagues were walking on Akihabara on a Sunday when they close the main street and there was a tremor like a wave passing by. It was the coolest but the locals didn't even reacted to it.

Running your own school is a well paying business if you've got a lot of students

Working for someone else...less so.

 

I am a control freak so opening my own School was the natural way to keep my sanity and it turned out to be far more profitable...about 4x .

 

It takes a lot of work but the pay is good and I make my schedule.

If only I could make a living teaching cantonese there, I'd be there in no time.

 Not sure of the dialect breakdown but Japan is expanding Foreign language acquisition in all directions.

Isn't Mandarin better than Cantonese?

You gotta spend money to make money.

And giving the kids some smiles after playing Drill Sergeant in the classroom goes a long way

(The generator lets me take this  waaaaaaaaaay overpriced ice grinder to the Summer beach BBQ)
