I have been waiting for this opportunity for about 3 years now. As you may know, there are only 2 months window to climb Mt. Fuji safely. July and August. Any months before or after, you risk yourself in grave danger as the temperture can reach -40c and wind can exceed 70km. Also, the stations and huts are closed during those times. However, if you are an experienced alpine climber, you would stand the chance. Nevertheless, I strongly suggest you plan your climb within those two months window if you are a beginner.
I have owned ducsu.com domain ever since 2006. Could have been longer; I can't remember. Why did I purchased it? At the time, I've read an article that it was a cool thing to do to own your very own domain. I knew nothing about web designing and web hosting. So ducsu.com just sat in my registrar for couple of years. After which, I decided to put it to use and self taught myself how to create a personal website. I watched video tutorials on html and php, than I put my quick knowledge of what I know about html and created my personal site. It wasn't pretty; no, it was awful to say the least. Again, ducsu.com went into hiding once more.
When it comes to working in Japan, it is not all fun and game. All Japanese in the workforce take their jobs seriously. Either white or blue collar workers. Their mentalities are equally the same. They are strong-minded,sincere,polite, and above all they are punctual. Whether there'd earthquakes, tsunami, thunder/lighten storms, or heavy rain, Japanese will find their way to get to work one way or another.
I don't consider myself too picky when it comes to food. I can eat most type of Japanese food, but there are some I will not eat nor try for that matter. Anything that is not cooked and natto, I will not eat. The taste and smell does not go well with one of my taste buds. Sushi is another. I cannot pop anything uncooked into my mouth without gagging. Other than those two described, I love Japanese food. Of course, one can only eat so much of it before their taste buds starts complaining. Since I am not Japanese and I have grown up to hamburgers and hotdogs, I need a change of varity from time to time. Which leads me to another discovery while living in Japan.
I must admit; I have a sweet tooth for any snacks that are tasty. Japan has some of the coolest okashi (snacks) around. The taste is different from your traditional snacks in the USA. For starters, Japanese pastries are not as sweet as compared to that of the US. In addition, Japanese pastries look more like an art rather food. It looks too pretty to consume.
