Featured on KISS Online

4 Jun

Yesterday morning I was watching the Japanese morning TV program 「めざましテレビ」  (“Mezamashi TV“) as I do every morning while I get ready for work…when suddenly KISS was on the show to promote their new album “KISS 40“!

Of course I took a photo of my TV screen and tweeted it.


It got many re-tweets. Even KISS‘s official twitter account re-tweeted my photo!

And,, their official homepage, put my photo on the KISS site.

Thanks NaoKISS for telling me about it.

New page

30 Oct

I just made a new page on my blog.
It’s titled “What’s that?“, and I made it to answer some of the questions that visitors ask me about “mysterious” things they’ve seen in Japan.

Check it out and if you have any questions about Japan (things you’ve seen, where places are, recommendations for places to visit, etc.), feel free to contact me. And, of course, comments in any of my blogs pages and posts are always appreciated!

One million hits

25 Sep

My blog reached one million hits yesterday! Thank you very much for visiting my blog…and I hope you’ll leave a comment often! The best part of having a blog is the feedback from visitors…so feel free to comment on any of my posts (recent ones, as well as old ones).

My blog averages about 1,500 hits a day. But the day with most traffic was just after the 2011 March 11 earthquake / tsunami in Sendai. My blog had 10,007 hits on that single day.

Just how big of a number is one million?
One million hours is over 114 years,
one million miles is more than four times the distance from the earth to the moon,
one million people is the approximate population of Sendai, Japan.

Thanks to everyone for visiting my site…and for leaving comments. That’s what makes writing a blog worthwhile.


Anyways, would you like to see some pictures of our pet turtle?
I think she’s cute.

What kind of pet do you have?
