That was a quasi bizarre movie, Lost in Translation. My guys at work go to Japan, Taiwan, Korea, Singapore all the time as well as to Europe and Australia. I love booking their trips for them and they always bring me back postcards and little gifts. You should see my postcard wall in my office!

One of my best friends went to Japan to work for 6 months there. Once there, they introduced him to his "lady friend" for his complete stay.... ....he declined at first, but after being told that it would be a lack of respect for not obeying with such an "offering"....he went along with it.......

I've heard those stories too. Japanese businessmen like to entertain like that. I don't get it. They didn't show THAT in Lost in Translation, tho , did they?

ok I got it but how would refusing this person be considered impolite???

I can understand if refusing food or gifts in certain cultures is considered impolite! But something like this..?

ok i am a software guy...and that takes me to these places...the kind of job i am in takes people to US,UK, western europe, Japan etc.. my work hasnt taken me to USA yet but other ones i have been to .. .. i have changed 3 jobs.. in last 6 years..

so the 2nd day in japan...could manage to get down from local trains at correct station...thanks to english display on electronic screen inside the compartment....otherwise its difficult because all the route maps are in japanese.. no ones seems to understand english..

.even on the screen in compartment, the info in screen in english is flashed for only a smalltime..

however while coming back from work on train, there was an announcement on the trains which made the getting down easier.

the biggest problem i am having now is getting a food that doesnt have beef,bacon,meat,fish etc.. Today in dinner I survived on Potato chips, 1 doughnuts, 1 apple cake of something, another desert which has bread, icecream and caramel syrup kind of things...so basically lot of desserts .. it costs a lot i think...close to 2000 yen ...( one of my friend who came with me ate OCTOPUS....yuck yuck yuck )

and i had hot hot hot saki of course..make that 2500 yen for dinner alone

had a hectic day at work.. difficult to communicate even at office...
did lot of window shopping after work

and the japanese girls with all those short skirts

more later
