The Japanese Diet is where the parliament members meet in Tokyo. We just had time to take a quick peek through a well guarded fence!

Gaijin San

Since my better half is Japanese I often have the chance to travel to Japan. I grew fond over time of this magnificent country. I thought of sharing with you some places worth visiting in this little but growing travel guide to Japan. I try to show with images what I can't express with words. I hope you may find here some inspiration! For those who wonder, I chose the moniker Gaijin-San after being called like this by a waitress at a grilled eel restaurant. "Gaijin" means foreigner and "San" is a honorific suffix in Japanese.

  1. Dear Illustrious Friendsl,

    I hope history is smiling on you as one of its guardians of world history and world politics. It’s extremely kind of you to read this! I am doing research on the 1934 U.S. All Star Touring Team (with Babe Ruth, Lou Gerhrig, Jimmie Fox, Lefty Gomez and Moe Berg) and the Japanese teams that they played as they toured Japan. I’m trying to find the Japanese translation of the speech that baseball player Moe Berg delivered before The Diet in 1934 as they began their baseball tour playing Japanese Baseball Clubs around Japan. Would it be possible for you to dig up the speech and email me a copy of the speech (in Japanese). It would be incredibly kind of you and I would appreciate it very much as one of those studying the history of baseball. All the best. May all your baseball dreams come true! Respectfully, John Edgerton.
