A look at Volunteering in the tsunami affected areas of Japan.
I went up to Ofunato City in Iwate Prefecture to volunteer.
It was my sixth trip up there. This video is more about the trip.
I will make a supplemental video with more info on how to go about volunteering next. If you have any specific questions, throw them in the comments below. I will try to answer them If I can.

Japanese Box Cars

P1080642-3

Japan loves cars. Japan has given rise to some of the greatest names in automotive history. The GT-R. The NSX. The Supra. The LFA. The S2000. The AE86. The Lancer EVO. The Silvia. Hell even the WRX STI is a great name (though it is sullied by the idiots who drive them.) Basically. Japan does cars well. Japanese cars are also known for their tuning ability. you can unleash their power and dress them up to make them perform/look any way you could possibly want. The results of which (when googled) will yield a never ending selection of automotive eye candy for you to drool over. Two cars that will not come up in that search however are, the Nissan Cube and the Daihatsu Mira… And that is because they are (usually)Fugly.

Reggae and Ramen (It's Not Sushi 08)

You never know where life is going to take you... In a field on Mt. Haruna there lies a most awesome ramen shop with a vibe that i have not felt since the last time I was at Cool Runnings back home.

If you are in Gunma.. get your ramen on! Live music every Saturday Night.

Meat is a vital ingredient of the South African lifestyle (Japan’s staple is rice, France’s is bread and South Africa’s is meat). In particular, meat cooked over the open flame. Don’t mistake it for a BBQ though. In SA… that shit doesn’t fly. If you want to grill meat…There is only the braai.
