Japdates: Japanese Updates

Phew… Long time no Japan-related posts. Let me switch gears and move from life-determining Egyptian revolutions to everyday-like Japanese delusions…

Many things happened, many have been happening and many are taking place as I write this post…

The Hayabusa Shinkansen has been inaugurated and is now up and running with the dream speed of 500 Km/h…

Dream becomes reality: The Hayabusa bullet train approaches Shin-Aomori Station on Saturday morning during its debut on the Tohoku Shinkansen Line.

Osaka witnessed a day of snow it hadn’t seen like in at least five years…


Can't find an equivalent in English: دينا و إحداث النعمه

…and Starbucks released their new seasonal drink: Sakura Latte…

Sakura 'Cherry Blossom' Latte: Proof Japan is not weird?

… and, of course, yet another politician had to be involved in some horrid scandal. This time our subject of interest is the Minister of Foreign Affairs, who resigned after being accused of…. *drumroll* : receiving donations “from a Foreigner”.

Seiji Maehara: Oops. I guess Kan will have to find another extremely conformist successor!
