BEGIN Japanology was on today! Today's subject is the role & importance of Tokyo Bay throughout the city's history.

The waters are an important fishing area for the city, providing most of it's seafood. Kanagawa & Chiba prefectures also share the waters, alongside Tokyo. It has lots of sea life, and people use the waters for recreation.

They followed a group of fishermen on their local route through the bay. While fisherman elsewhere may use a particular mountain or tree as markers, this group uses famous Tokyo landmarks! The group also serves their fish on pleasure boats (ferries where people/tourists can enjoy the bay).

They explained the history of fishing in the historic city of Edo (old Tokyo), along with the region's unique sea food cuisine, such as tempura. When the city's population topped 1 million, with Samurai stationed in the capital & merchants flocking there, food stores (similar to today's fast food) flourished, with many new dishes created (such as sushi as we know it today).

They then went to a mud flat to catch shellfish such as crabs & clams. In post war Tokyo, in vast industrialization, the mud flats of Tokyo Bay (as well as the bay itself) became heavily polluted. Over time, the bay has become clean once more, and there are groups dedicated to keeping it that way!

In a local park, you can ride on traditional wooden boats in the waters of the bay. They then visited a craftsman who is making sure that the ancient art of making these boats stays alive.

^So, when are you planning on heading over? I know you said that you were saving up to $5,000 for the move, but I remember WhiteKnight (who has been over there numerous times) saying somewhere that it'd take at least $10,000 just to get a good vacation, and a lot more for a move.

That's a tough one to judge, since IDK if he was telling the truth TBH he seems to not be taking my stuff serious, but I remember reading somewhere $10,000 to move and have a few months rent, unless he was telling the truth to me

Jibtv was on today!

The main part of today's programming was a triathlon held in Yokohama, followed by what was essentially a commercial for Yokohama tourism.

Excuse me, but if it's alright with all present parties, could I participate in this conversation as well? If I'm not welcome, I completely understand and I will just step out. I'd hate to intrude.

I foresee what you'll do there.

You're being too polite. Please participate in any conversation as freely as you want.

If anybody wants some help learning Japanese, I was introduced a while ago a site that uses Japanese RPGs to help you learn Japanese. It's called The JRPG Club. So far it actually seems pretty useful.

Well, I don't really think I can comment on anything with girls, that's your own business. Do you have questions about anything? I know Harmoknight keeps saying he wants to live there, but its a bit more complicated than just buying a plane ticket.

@HarmoKnight Where are you moving to in Japan? If you don't feel comfortable sharing that information, that's fine.
