Hi there! thank you for commments. Halloween seemed to be fun for me. Heidi, I sent a mail to you about it

I am sorry if this post is off-topic, but I am hoping Mari-san or others who post here can help me.

My two very good Japanese friends are taking a vacation to Nassau, the Bahamas in two weeks. They are currently living in the US (3 years on business). Their reading and writing skills in English are ok, but they are currently working on improving their conversation skills (I am their teacher). Nassau is very British, so communicating in English while there is likely their only option!

We/they can't find any travel brochures/information about Nassau in Japanese (I emailed the Official Office of Tourism for Nassau with no response).

Any ideas where I can find travel info/websites about Nassau in Japanese?

Domo arigatou!


As a fan of Halloween, I think that Yamanote Halloween Train to be insulting--to the holiday spirit. Being a drunken douche in public while wearing a generic costume is distracting from the spooky heritage and disrespectful to the Great Pumpkin.


Halloween has never been as scary as the elections this year!! Good gravy this past week of campaigning has been an eternity - the incessant political TV ads are pure torture!! At this point, I don't give a rats @ss who wins - just get it over with already! It's like getting a root canal!!

Thanks for the diversion, Mari-san! ^-^ chiisai yaumi...

The "party" already happened and hardly anybody showed up, maybe even more 2ch-ers were there than partyers: http://www.japanprobe.com/?p=6868

Joe, thanks for the link to the video. I watched it carefully. I notice that it focuses more on short shots, a lot of it not on the train. In fact, you can see policemen in the back in some of the shots. So I think the Japanprobe article is correct: the party was stopped by police. But very tricky editing by "RoninDave"....

RoninDave also seems to think the police were there to protect partygoers....I'm sure that must be it. It couldn't be that they were there to make sure drunk people didn't get violent.


Those foreigners who have the halloween party on the yamanote line are morons. If a bunch of foreigners came to New York City and tried that, they'd get knocked out by the locals. Sometimes I wish the Japanese would have a little more backbone.


They already had the party: http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=v-jNaKHVnTw

maybe they'll have another one though i dunno.

that video is great! although alot of people have said its fake...i dunno
