Thank you for dropping by. What you will find here are quick
information access to my hometowns (Tokachi-Shimizu and Sapporo, Japan
and Huntsville, Alabama, USA) and a list of places that will help you keep
up with what goes on in the two countries and in the people's minds. I
plan to update as I find more interesting places to visit and some original
materials become available. So, stay tuned for future additions.

My Blog on Hormone Research
Dr. Sullivan's articles on sensible psychotherapy
Much needed Internet resource to understand today's mature and effective psychotherapy. Dr. Kenneth P. Sullivan (Huntsville, Alabama), a licensed psychologist for nearly twenty years, has seen a lot of therapy fads come and go. He explains what works; a treatment that is appropriately tailored for each individual case; a treatment that brings good sense to bear on the problems.
The topics include:
Health Basics: Promoting Self-Healing Power
The tissues in our body are constantly regenerated. If we can keep the regeneration
process vigorous we can slow down aging, prevent illnesses, and recover from
illnesses and injuries fast. The key is to remove toxins and to fortify hormones and
nutrients to create an environment that allows each cells in our body to regenerate
itself in a healthier and younger image.
Hormonal Balance And Women's Health
Many health problems and risks women encounter throughout their adult years are related to progesterone (one of the two female hormones) deficiency and resulting estrogen dominance.This starts 10 to 15 years before the actual onset of menopause and causes wide range of health problems. I feel very fortunate that I came to learn about it before it was too late.
I started using natural progesterone cream in May 1998. I am getting stronger and regaining my health. I have been telling this to every woman around me, and finding out most of them were given wrong advice and have been suffering needlessly. This web site is part of my effort to share this information with as many women as I can.
Adventure in Japan
This story of an Australian couple is a "MUST READ" for
anyone planning to tour Japan. They were determined to tour Japan on their
own on budget. Armed with a phrasebook and a guidebook, they went, and
returned with tons of stories to tell.

American Home Cooking: Mom's Tried
and True A private cookbook under construction by a 77 year-old (at the time of the current version) super lady, whom I am privileged to call "Mom". It is based on
her recipe collection of many decades.
My weblog in Japanese
My favorite Band: SC5 The most popular page at this site.
Search Engines Many of them have English page and translator/dictionary.
A Word of Caution: Many Japanese web sites offer both Japanese
and English versions. But their contents are seldom identical; some items
appear only in Japanese and some appear only in English. In some cases
the two versions are designed separately for each target audience. So,
if you see only one version you may miss some items that are included only
in the other version.
If you wish to add Japanese text capability, you can use Internet Explorer to download a Japanese font from Microsoft (Select View > Encoding > Japanese and follow the instruction). If you are uing Win 2K or XP, go to Regional Options in the Control Panel. You can install all sorts of language capabilities there. If you wish to see Japanese software available in stores outside Japan, go to AsiaSoft.
If you need a help with Japanese language tools in general, see
Jim Breen's Japanese Page.
Guide to Japanese Computing at University Washington is also a good site.

- View Points:
- Are Japanese easy targets of scapegoating in America? Is it the yellow
peril journalism that keeps American public negatively biased against Japanese?
There are people who made it their business to investigate this subject.
home page lists those studies and reference materials including American
misconceptions about Japan FAQ which suggests that to the biased even
a positive may appear negative.
- We Reserve the right
to retaliate This propaganda I stumbled onto is one of those that is
fast and loose with facts and heavy on rhetoric:
"..."many Japanese regard themselves a victims"...They
conveniently forget that after World War II in Germany there were war crime
trials at Nuremberg. German military leaders were imprisoned or, in some
cases, executed. In Japan there were none, despite equally horrendous
atrocities committed against military prisoners and civilians occupied
by Japanese troops who conductedmedical experiments on innocent people."
The fact is that 7 Japanese, including the Prim Minister Tojo, were
hung for class A war crimes by the Tokyo Trials, in addition to the 53
executed for class B and C crimes by the war crime tribunals held within
Japan and 1008 by the tribunals outside of Japan (see [Japan did pay for
its war crimes] by KAMISAKA Fuyuko, Bungei
Shunju, pages 164-166, Feb. 1996). The curious thing is that I heard
an almost identical rhetoric on a popular talk show Politically Incorrect
on Comedy Central expressed passionately
by a female guest (around 30 years of age, of conservative persuasion judging
from her title.) Are they ignorant or malicious? Whichever is the case,
the world should not be kept ignorant of the 1068 Japanese excecuted by
the war tribunal.
