Hey, Kacica, What's Up?
Mar 30, 2009 by Seek Japan JP

Here much like elsewhere, pop music dominates the airwaves, for better or for worse. And while your own country’s pop music might sound more sufferable having heard it most of your life, move to another country and the situation may not be so rosy once the novelty has gone. To find more original music, it becomes necessary to dig a little deeper to find treasures that hide behind the noise of mainstream pre-digested singers. ...Full story>>

death metal in the dentist's office
Mar 29, 2009 by Seek Japan JP 

I went to the dentist a couple of times recently...  was worried that the slight pain in one of my back teeth would turn out to be some kind of horrible cavity.  I still have nightmares about this one time I went to the dentist in the US, without health insurance, and paid some kind of ungodly sum of money to get a root canal.  Maybe I didn't need a root canal, but they said I did, and I was about to move to Taiwan, so I figured that I didn't want to get some horrible toothache as soon as I showed up.

Traveling on a Budget in the Kansai region
Mar 23 2009 by Seek Japan JP

Most tourists to Japan, whom I meet when I am traveling Japan, have a two or three week Japan Rail Pass (JR Pass) that they use to speed around the country on the Shinkansen, or bullet train as it is widely known. The traditional JR Pass, that enables you to travel across Japan on all JR lines (except on the Nozomi Shinkansen) is really handy and economical if you are travelling from say Osaka to Tokyo and then up north to Hokkaido. A day or so there and you are off again on the Shinkansen, to travel back to Osaka, Kyoto and then down to Kyushu. It is really great value if you are travelling long distances every day, as the JR Pass covers consecutive days of travel. ...Full story>>
