Chinese Authorities Place 'Wanted' Posters For Tibetan Rioters On Web Portals. I think it is good timing that China has the Olympics this year. People pay attention to the news more.

I ride Odakyu line every day, I ride this cute train often.
Grave of the Fireflies will be made into a real film. This is the official page. Oh well, I will never never see it, almost tears come up to see the top page of the site. I am very weak for such sad stories.
Have you ever been to Yoshinoya? I am not a big fan of the shop, but my friend loves 'Yoshi Gyu' (we say 'Yoshi Gyu' it stand for Yoshinoya Gyudon = beef bowl). He says the shop where he goes to often remembers what he likes. It means, in Yoshinoya, there are only three beef bowls on the menu. 'Nami (regular)', 'Omori (large)' and 'Tokumori (extra large)'. Actually that is just the size menu. But you can request your type beef bowl like 'Tsuyu-daku (more soup)', 'Negi-daku (more onion)', 'Negi-nuki(no onion)', 'Tsume shiro (cold rice)', 'Toro nuki( no fat part of meat)' etc. So there are only three menu items, though there are 72 ways to order in Yoshinoya. I am not sure all Yoshinoya shops accept such orders, though you may try when you go there.
