Day 1341 ( Sky Tree - The Tallest Tower in the world )
Sunday, November 20, 2011 ( 3 Year 8 Months )
Stayed in all day and did some reading.
The sky Tree in Tokyo has now been officially recognized as the tallest tower in the world.
Rising like a space age Eiffel Tower on growth hormones, the newly built Tokyo Sky Tree won't officially open its elevator doors until May 2012.
Yet the 2,080-foot-tall (634-meter-tall) structure has already
built a lofty reputation. Under construction since 2008, Japan's latest landmark was this month certified the world's tallest tower by Guinness World Records.
er measures 2,723 feet (830 meters) tall.
Tokyo's Sky Tree is a tower, the difference being "that less than 50 percent of the construction is usable floor space," explained Guinness World Records spokesperson Anne-Lise Rouse.Yes, say the records people, but the Burj Khalifa is the world's tallest building.

I had lunch with the

Day 1344 ( Sex Deficit in Japan )
Wednesday, November 23, 2011
Today was another holiday so I stayed in and studied.
t’s point of view, the rallying cry to cure Japan’s ills the pa
st two decades has often been, “Spend, Japan, spend!”
roblems of the latter point.
a boyfriend. Worse still, 45% of the men and women who don’t have a girlfriend/boyfriend/spouse are not interested in finding one, either.
young Japanese women preferred to stay single.
Day 1345 (Test Subject)
Thursday, November 24, 2011
Had company meeting today. Of course myself as well as everyone else who went to the meeting were tired. Our activity today was to read someone else's pre-written instructions for an activity, then perform it. I think it all went pretty well over all.
One of the English teachers with my co
mpany told me he signed for something where he got different prescription drugs tested on him. The catch is that they only ask Caucasians and Asians to be the test subjects. I heard its only like 4 days - a week but the pay is pretty darn good. Like double our monthly salary now. And our pay now is not too bad. However the risks of being a lab rat hmmmm .... I am not sure about that. Oh and they don't use black people I gather so I couldn't try it any way.
After the meeting I hung out a bit with one of the other English teachers. We had coffee and chatted a bit, then I went to do my evening lesson.

Made a quick run to the Yokohama station in order to try collecting some money for my friend. But the western union was closed so I had to go back to my apartment. Then go back to Yokohama again to take a bus to Kyoto.
Day 1347 ( Around Kyoto )
Saturday, November 27, 2011
Visited my friend in Kyoto and we met up with one of her friends. Her friend lived 2 years in Morocco and she speaks both French and Arabic. I then collected the money for me friend and sent it off to him.
We then went to a Jamaican restaurant in Kyoto called "Rasta". We ate patty and Jerk chicken. It wasn't like the authentic Jamaican thing but it tasted good.
