Why a skinny, 35 year old, unemployed, Japanese guy is the said-openWorld’s Best Santa,said-closed is beyond me, but it’s interesting, ain’t it?

24/7 softball tournament … only in Japan

With Japan’s problem of negative population growth along with the aging and depopulation of rural areas, has resulted in empty school districts and a lot of excess equipment.

Get on the Halloween Party Train! Yokohama’s Chinatown to Tokyo’s Shibuya

Every Halloween for the past 30 years or so, the gaijin/aliens (foreigners) of Tokyo have had a tradition of getting roaring drunk in costume and then turning a couple of cars of the Yamanote commuter line into a “party train” much to the chagrin of sad-sack salarymen.

See right:
Please party on the train!
