Captain Japan's latest column:

New Breed Taxi Drivers Emerge in Japan

Few will doubt that the Captain is one of the hardest working newsmen around. Waiting for a story to come to him is not his style; rather, he's out pounding the pavement, getting the facts, and putting faces on people - in essence, giving his readers a voice they can rely on even in the most difficult of times.

The host-turned-driver featured in the second one is a really nice guy. I put his phone number at the bottom of the page, so if you need a ride in Tokyo, give him a call. He can speak English a little bit as well.

I've got some links at the bottom of my info page:
