Hi, my name is Anna Kitanaka and I work as a journalist for an English language business magazine called J@pan Inc.

I am currently researching for an article about healthcare in Japan and foreign people's experience of it.

Is there anyone that has had a problem with the Japanese healthcare system and found the need to go to a specialist English/foreigner friendly clinic instead? Or anyone with an unusual experience of health problems in Japan who wouldn't mind sharing their experience with me? It could also be anonymous if you would prefer.

Please contact me if you can help at: anna@japaninc.com

Thanks for your time!

Anna Kitanaka

Re: Edward Seidensticker

Such sad news. A person like this you hope will live forever. Many of us owe our access to Japanese literature, and an understanding of the development of Tokyo into a modern city thanks to his energetic, comprehensive scholarship. I am adding a small tribute to him in this Friday's column, Walking the Wards, in the Japan Times (Sept. 7th, back page). If you've never read Low City, High City, you're in for a rich experience.

NEW YORK TIMES OBITUARY for:

Edward Seidensticker, Translator, Is Dead at 86

By MARGALIT FOX
Published: August 31, 2007

Edward G. Seidensticker, an eminent translator from the Japanese who brought the work of ancient and modern writers to a wide English-speaking public, died on Sunday in Tokyo. He was 86 and made his home in Tokyo.

The cause was complications of a head injury Mr. Seidensticker sustained several months ago, said Haruo Shirane, Shincho Professor of Japanese Literature at Columbia University. Mr. Seidensticker, who leaves no immediate survivors, was, at his death, emeritus professor of Japanese literature at Columbia.

Mr. Seidensticker was most widely known for his translation of gThe Tale of Genji,h the 11th-century epic of love and intrigue by Murasaki Shikibu, a Japanese lady-in-waiting at the imperial court. Mr. Seidenstickerfs translation, published by Alfred A. Knopf in 1976, was praised by critics and attracted a popular following.

Hello all,

I'm looking for either a cheap apartment to sublet while some kind soul is out of Tokyo, or I can house sit your place while you are away.

I've lived in Japan for many years but have been back living in NZ for about 3 years now.

In September 2007 I'm coming back, but since all my friends have moved on, I no longer have somewhere to stay and can't afford a hotel for two weeks :-)

I would need somewhere for two adults and one 6 yr old girl, 21st September thru 7th October 2007.

We are happy to take somewhere really small as we will be out and about all day and just need somewhere safe and inexpensive to sleep. When I lived in Tokyo I always gave my room/apartment to others to use while I was away and I'm hoping karma will come back around and pay me back :-)

If you have anything at all, or know of someone who has a place they wont be using, I promise we will leave it in immaculate condition and treat it with utmost respect.

Please, someone try to help us out.

Kind regards,
Stephanie

Unearthing the mud-covered town of St. Bernard, Southern Leyte, Philippines - calling all geologists and engineers
here... isn't there any high tech equipment that we know aside from hands, shovel and dogs to unearth the mud-covered town?

Every minute counts... more lives could be saved.

I think that we need a stronger force with the individual efforts searching for buried lives in St. Bernard, Leyte, Philippines. Pls echo your thoughts on this. What equipments are needed to unearth
St. Bernard? Please see the maps below:

http://www.multimap.com/wi/144672.htm
http://unosat.web.cern.ch/unosat/asp/prod_free.asp?id=46

St. Bernard is very near the North Pacific Ocean... there must be a way to improvise a creek for the muds to flow directly to the ocean. I might be thinking too much... but I think that's possible. Or is there another way? What could it be? There are foreigners who want to help.. .there are folks back home who could build this. Please help analyze the situation.

Let's do something, folks. Let's help the situation. Do you think unearthing St Bernard now will be finished with some bulldozers? We need bigger equipments to do that.... pls help! We need more solutions.

March in March will be held in Shinjuku at Kashiwagi Park and Not in Shibuya as previous stated.

NUGW Tokyo Nambu, Nambu Foreign Workers Caucus, General Union, Fukuoka General Union, Zentoitsu General Union, Kanagawa City Union, Amnesty International (Japan) and many other human rights groups are planning a massive march and demonstration to demand job security for foreigners working in Japan on Sunday March 5, 2006 at 1.30pm.

We will meet just before 1.30pm in the Kashiwagi Park 7-14 Nishi -Shinkuku, Shinjuku-ku, approx 5-min-walk from JR Shinjuku Station. The festivities, including music, dancing and speeches will begin at 1.30pm. We will have lots of placards, posters and leaflets but feel free to bring your own as long as they support job security and equality.http:// nambufwc.org/
Contact Louis on 03 3434 0669

If you live in the Kyushu Region, contact Fukuoka General Union for the simultaneous march in Fukuoka. http://www. fukuoka.generalunion.org/index.htm For those who live in Kansai or the Osaka, Kobe and Nagoya area, contact General Union for Osaka details:http://www.generalunion.org/


Last year, we had massive media coverage for the March in March, including start-to-finish filming by a TBS TV crew and stories in the Asahi Shimbun, Yomiuri Shimbun and foreign media. This year we plan to make it much bigger to draw more attention to the job security problem faced by foreigners as well as Japanese workers. If we want job security for all, we are going to have to fight for it. There's no two ways about it.

So make sure you have the day off on March 5 1.30pm and bring at least two or three foreign or Japanese friends or family with you (all nationalities and ages are very welcome). Also, please take a moment to forward this email to at least five friends living in Japan. It will only take a moment, and by doing so, you can help get the word out far and wide that it's time to make our voices heard. It's time foreign workers are treated with dignity and respect, with the job security that all workers deserve.

There are nearly 200,000 foreign workers in Japan. Let's try and reach all of them. Join the Forward Five Friends campaign.

See you on March 5 at 1.30pm in Kashiwagi Park Shinjuku-ku!!!

Hello everyone!

I am new here, and would really appreciate some suggestions. My 17 year old son arrived in Japan yesterday (Saturday 5/4/03) to stay with my husband (his step-father who is Japanese and currently working in Tokyo). I believe school resumes this week so there may not be much opportunity but it would make a big difference to my son if he could meet some boys and girls of similar age especially from other countries. He returns to Australia on the 23rd April.

As my husband will be working all week my son will have to look around Tokyo on his own. He doesn't speak Japanese but he's a very friendly & personable young man!

He is going to the Robotex exhibtion in Yokohama today and I was also wondering if there are other things of interest that anyone could recommend.

Thanks very much in advance. Please feel free to email me with ideas or contacts.

My father (Allen Mitchell) was stationed at Johnson Airbase as a medic during the Korean war in the 1950's. He became involved with a nurse (Toshiko Kashima) and believes she had a child. He lost track of the woman when her father found out and sent her away. My father is now in his 70's and would like to locate his child. It is believed that she saw Dr.'s in Hannou City, Saitama, Japan and Tokorozawa, Saitama. If you have any information please e-mail: TOREAS@EARTHLINK.NET

Stopping smoking, losing weight? If you are trying to stop smoking or lose weight, have you thought of trying ear therapy to help? I am looking for volunteers for a training course I am doing. Headaches, backaches, joint and muscle pains can also be helped. There is no pain involved in the therapy. For more information, please contact me directly at c_bertorelli@yahoo.com.

For anyone interested, I need to find a Japanese family, preferably in a larger Japanese city (I would LOVE to go to Tokyo) but anywhere would be wonderful. The location is not set.

Once I get there I will be going to High School like a regular Japanese teenager.

The family doesn't need to have kids, although I am great with kids and willing to help tutor in English or French.

Thanks !!

I am coming to Japan March 19th, 2002 to participate in a year long exchange. None of the available host families through the organization I am going with will accept a vegetarian student (regardless of the fact that I cook). If I expect to go I must find my own host family. Seeing as I do not know anyone in Japan, it is a daunting task.

I'm 17 years old and have studied Japanese for three years and am fluent in French (and obviously English).

I know it's going out on a limb, but if anyone has any ideas, questions, or knows anyone who could help,

please email me at:
