Danny Choo Got Served

November 15, 2007

Japanese woman who dances on the street in Shinjuku when they close it on Sundays. She never cease to scare a few of the locals and tourists alike with her intensity and seemingly free form style

It really looks more like Helen Keller if she stuck her finger in an electrical socket but you can’t deny the talent nerve it takes to go act a fool in the middle of the street. All I can think is that even without issuing an official challenge, she is more than willing to tell Danny Choo to eat a biscuit cuz she got mad skillz yo.


The Japanese Jews

Japanese Jews

It looks like Hitler might have sided with his enemy in World War II. Scientists, historians, and religious gurus from all around have been looking into connections that the fabled lost tribes of Israel might have traveled far east all the way into Japan. From finding menorahs in Shinto temples to the fact that the famous Gion Matsuri is adorned with Middle Eastern art, the findings are staggering and heavily pointing to the fact that Japanese people are actually Jews.

One item of particular interest to myself was the noting of Tsurugisan on Shikoku Island in Tokushima prefecture. It is 1954.7 meters tall and one of the hundred famous mountains in Japan. When on a bus that was winding through the mountains on Shikoku, here and there you caught glimpses of Tsurugisan. Isolated, majestic, and now apparently Jewish. The video that follows is very informative on what scholars have found and here is a good write up on the events as well.
