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.
But hold on, what about Dubai's Burj Khalifa? Completed in 2010, the giant skyscrap
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.

Nothing Special today.



Day 1343 ( Dancing Children )
Tuesday, November 22, 2011

I had lunch with the
grade 1 students at my school to
day. And the teacher made the students do a special dance for me after lunch.



Day 1344 ( Sex Deficit in Japan )
Wednesday, November 23, 2011

Today was another holiday so I stayed in and studied.

From an economis
t’s point of view, the rallying cry to cure Japan’s ills the pa
st two decades has often been, “Spend, Japan, spend!”
From a demographer’s point of view, the cry is more: “Procreate, Japan, procreate!”
A survey last week underscores the growing p
roblems of the latter point.
The number of single men has reached a record high in the aging nation of 130 million, according to a survey by the National Institute of Population and Social Security Resear
The number of single men aged 18 to 34 rose 9.2% from the previous survey in 2005. About 61% of unmarried adult men don’t have a girlfriend, while half the adult women surveyed don’t have a husband or
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.
One in four unmarried men and women in their late 30s have never had sex, the survey found. A vast majority of the single men and women surveyed - 86% and 89%, respectively - say they one day want to tie the knot. The largest roadblock, according to the survey authors, is financial concerns - more than 40% of the singletons surveyed said money worries are a top reason they don’t marry.
But is that really the case? In the survey, 90% of unmarried
young Japanese women preferred to stay single.
That compares to a study earlier this year by Japan Family Planning Association that showed 36% of males aged 16 to 19 were “indifferent or averse” toward having sex, a 19% increase from a 2008 survey. Meanwhile, 59% of teenage females surveyed said they weren’t interested in sex, a nearly 12% increase in two years.



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.



Day 1346

Friday, November 26, 2011

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.
