  1. Had never seen before but had some Tabasco chocs over crimbo (got them in Seijo Ishii), and bloomin good they are too. Especially recommend with a nice smoky whisky.
  2. Been a while. 4 years old(?) and still going strong, thanks SJ! Spotted another one over the holidays in Yuzawa also. Anyone else still have theirs on display?
  3. I was involved with the filming of a few documentaries in Taiji and have been many times. The biggest problem is the fact that the dolphin meat is so highly contaminated with Mercury it is dangerous to eat. Due tot eh fact it is high up the food chain means that it is far more highly contaminated than other food from the sea. When consumed this can cause a number of illnesses including something called Arctic Baby Syndrome (reversal in normal ratios of male to female births- seen in Arctic and Northern Canada), Autism, as well as Non Hodgkins Lymphomas disease, and cancers. We were actual
  4. Google Squared is very useful for work. Answers displayed in spreadsheet format. http://www.google.com/squared
  5. His restaurant in Tokyo is good though! Had a good meal there just the other week. As a person...not so bothered.
  6. and from the Economist... The Economist Group expands Apr 1st 2009 From Economist.com Explore a clickable map of The Economist's new theme park AS PART of a strategy designed to broaden the revenue base, leverage content over new platforms and promote The Economist brand to a young and dynamic audience, The Economist Group is delighted to announce the development of a public-entertainment facility that combines the magic of a theme park with the excitement of macroeconomics. After six months of negotiations with the British government, The Economist Group can confirm that Ec

  9. I'd suggest a snow related search on Twitter and see who you want to follow. (Also suggest a chap called Darrell_Nelson ), then start to inform the world of all the best bits you post on Snow Japan site with links here!! After a few days you'll be addicted!
  10. Any of you people use Twitter? I have gotten quite into it recently "tweeting" for work and private, great connector of different NPOs too. I find it a really useful way of staying up to date on various topics you are concerned with. Better than an RSS feed and more fun! Quite like this article in the FT FT on Twitter Quote: The blizzard of short messages on the service “extends peripheral awarenessâ€, he says, with the nuggets of observation and information flying by creating a richer “context†for online life. SJ- You guys not thought of "tweeting"? Imagine it woul
  11. Got around to buying a wifi station so I can dispatch with all the annoying cables lying around at home. Thought it would be a pretty straight forward process, but have been having major probs trying to get it all set up. Cables all attached correctly going through my original router and then to my mac etc. First of all couldn't actually reach the server for to change settings and register as it says to do. Just says the server is not responding. Tried rebooting it all, rebooting Mac, nothing. THen all of a sudden without actually doing anything, finally managed it once, but it sti
  12. Oyuki- Good suggestion but I doubt it is in line with what they are looking for. As I am acting in more of a consultant form I don't have final decision, but I may do some research and see what groups are involved in that from Japan. To be honest though I think it would be too close to the bone for a Japanese TV company to pick up on. I have seen a documentary from the BBC I think in a similar vain though. Do you know of any groups involved directly with this at all? What projects are you involved with? I know you do things within Japan but any that involve other areas as well? Any other
  13. Quote: Tokyo tower, you can see all of Tokyo and Mount Fuji clearly on a good day. And chances are as you are coming in January the sky will be clear. I recommend the Government Towers in Shinjuku over Tokyo Tower. It is taller and is free! Great views and you don't have people trying to sell you crap! Meiji Shrine is good for a visit to escape the hustle and bustle. Daikanyama is nice to saunter around as is Shimokitazawa for a more bohemian vibe. Also Korakoen is really nice huge garden/ park. Or do a day trip to Kamakura to see the massive Budah, (Daibutsu) only about 30mins from To
  14. Quote: A Japanese group educating on sustainable fishing methods....oh the irony!! haha. There are actually a few groups trying to change things both internationally and in Japan. Basically f they want to keep eating the ampount of Tuna they do, then it has to change!
