10/21   Any review on Clint Eastwood's yet another film about Iwojima?
        Does it say anything negative about the evil "Japs" and how
        glorious our fathers were?
        \_ The Fresh Air review made it sound more like a stark portrayal of
           the inanities of pro-war propaganda even in war-time.
        \_ You do realize this is actually a psuedo two-part movie. The other
           one is called Letters from Iwo Jima, telling the story from the
           Japanese side.
           \_ Then how come none of the trailers or posters say anything
              about, "Part 1 of 2" or "The First Chapter in the Iwo Jima
              Saga" or something like that?
                 The last few seconds does mention Letter from Iwo Jima as the
                 counterpart of this movie.  The three big Japanese characters
                 in the screen before is "Soshite" which means "and.  BTW I'm
                 surprised that Flags of our Fathers are showing in Japan.  I
                 thought people and the govt in Japan are very sensitive to
                 WWII issues.  -- !PP
           \_ I didn't know it's a two-sided movie(s).  I wasn't going to see
              Flags of our Fathers, but now I will.  I haven't seen a two-sided
              movie since Tora Tora Tora.  -- !OP

8/5     "Communist Party makes a comeback ... in Japan"
        \_ They never went away in Japan. When I lived there, the MP from my city
           was a Communist (back in the early 90s). --erikred

        Japan rules!
        \_ Fifteen years ago I worked there for seven months.  I miss Japan!
           (I'm Chinese immigrant.)  More facts:
           - Besides cold drinks, vending machines also carry hot drinks like
             hot tea and corn soup.  And they are actually hot instead of warm.

8/19    I have business in Osaka. I would like to see Kyoto and,
        preferably, Tokyo. However, I only have about 2-3 days to myself.
        I have never been to Japan. I can fly into Osaka and out of Tokyo,
        if I want. I was thinking of flying into Osaka and then taking the
        train to Tokyo before flying back from Tokyo to the USA with the
        goal of a full day in Kyoto and a full day in Tokyo in between. Is this
