Day 2570 ( Training Training )
Wednesday, April 2, 2015
Did a brief presentation at a company training session today. I was as nervous as ever so I don't think it went too well but, you know, that's just life.
Was chatting with my Wednesday night private student and suddenly some of my old elementary school students in Yokohama came up to the Starbucks window, calling me to take a photo.

Day 2578 ( Be careful of IMO Talent Agency in Tokyo )
Saturday, April 11, 2015
So 4 years ago when I just moved to Yokohama, I signed up with a few talent agencies. This particular one, IMO (Inagawa Motoko) http://www.inagawamotoko.com/bosyu.php
is verrrrry verrrry shady. In 4 years, this is like the 3rd time they are calling me for a job. They called me on Wednesday and told me to come for a part in a drama on Saturday and Sunday. I asked about the pay, exactly what I was doing, how long it would take etc... and they couldn't give me an answer. All they said was to meet a manager guy and FujiTV people in Tokyo at 6:30 am.
So I got up this morning at 4:30 am and rushed to Tokyo, even missed 2 trains and when I got there, I saw the TV crew and a couple other people in the rain waiting for another dude. We had to wait for 30 mins... then got driven back to close where I was coming from in the first place.
So about 14 of us were in a room, no one knowing what's going on. We had to stay in the room for like 10 hours and periodically shooting short scenes for the drama. I was getting really pissed because of the lack of information and the time I was wasting there.... So I got angry and left at 6:30 pm ... 12 hours after getting to Tokyo.....I don't even care if they pay me or not....The FujiTV staff present were also really horrible at dealing with people. The good thing out of all of this was that I met some cool people.
