First of all, today (2013 March 26) is the fifth anniversary of my blog.
I wrote the first post on 2008 March 26.
As of today, my blog has gotten about 1,600,000 hits … that averages to about 895 hits per day over the five years – - but that’s not really accurate because my blog averages 1000 hits a day now, but less than 50 a day when I first started it in 2008.
Thanks to all my site’s visitors … especially you! Please leave a comment!
Anyways, I found out about a new movie about post-WW2 Japan titled “Emperor” starring Tommy Lee Jones as U.S. Army General Douglas McArthur.
Do you know who Gen. McArthur was?
He is very well-known in Japan.
General McArthur was in charge of the U.S. military during the war against Japan … and also during the occupation of Japan after the war ended.
Japanese people respect McArthur because he respected the Japanese people.
Tommy Lee Jones is also respected in Japan.
He is known to everyone here as the “face” of Suntory’s Boss Coffee.
In the Boss Coffee TV commerials, Tommy Lee Jones acts and sounds like a Japanese man.
He’s an excellent actor.
Have you seen the movie “Emperor” ?
