In Japan at many of the temples you can get your fortune. If you
don’t like it you can tie it to a rope to let it go.
You can see that the top of each tower has an atrium which of course have gorgeous views.
Today I found out in Japanese class that when the trains stop, say because of an accident, it costs them on average $50K a minute in lost ticket sales. If it takes 30 minutes to fix that’s $1.5 million dollars.
I don’t quite know what the point is but NTT DoCoMo has a portable Kareoke machine. It’s about the size of CD player. It plugs into your phone and your TV and some speakers and a Mic. You have a catalog from which you select songs. They get downloaded over your cellphone to this machine and then played back.
