A book by a Japanese scholar on his exposure to the world
Many years ago I borrowed this book from the Japanese consulate in downtown Houston and read it with great interest and would like to read it again. I don't remember the title or author. An incident I remember from the book, the author and his colleagues went to great effort to learn Dutch and were surprised to learn Dutch was not the universal language.

Can anyone there tell me the author and title of that book?

Thanks, Dan Healy

Stop the senseless slaughter of dolphins and whales in Tajii
I am horrified by the slaughter of whales and dolphins in Tajii. I plead with Japan to stop this cruel and unpardonable attack on creatures who cannot defend themselves.

Missionary visa
What paper work do I need to apply for a missionary visa? I will also attend a Japanese Language school in Japan.

Very concerned
Dear Excellency,

I am writing to express my concern with regards the welfare of bears in Japanese bear parks. I urge the Japanese authorities to carry out the following actions:

Provide support to the bear parks to develop naturalistic enclosures which allow the bears to express natural behaviours and contain sufficient space and material to allow behavioural enrichment. Enclosures should be built following the standards developed at sanctuaries for brown bears and Asiatic black bears globally.

Develop protocols under the supervision of a veterinary surgeon that is familiar with current practice in the care of captive bears, to ensure the condition, health and behaviour of all animals is assessed regularly, and a record indicating changes to the prescribed diet, health checks carried out, any unusual behaviour or activity or other problems, and remedial actions taken.

Develop initiatives to provide capacity building training for members of staff to recognise abnormal behaviour and clinical symptoms of illness and develop the knowledge of the diets, husbandry, and enrichment procedures required for the bears in their care.

If these conditions cannot be met I urge you to close the bear parks and support the humane euthanasia of these bears to end their suffering.

STOP the slaugher of Pilot Whales & Dolphins at Taiji, Japan.
STOP the slaugher of Pilot Whales & Dolphins at Taiji, Japan.
私が言うことができることが何もなくてそれがあなたにこれらの哺乳動物に対する姿勢を変えさせるかあるいはすでにそれらの目前の死に抗議しています。 しかし私があなたにストレス〔強調〕を缶詰めにしてあなたがこの野蛮な実行〔練習〕を終えるまで日本へのどんな未来の旅行も取り消されること。

The Mass killing of Pilot Whales in Taiji, Japan.
Please intervene to stop the mass killing of Pilot Whales in Taiji. These innocent creatures are much valued and needed in our Seas and we do not support Japan's actions in these killings.

Yours from the Heart,

Alison Stokes,
Dublin, Ireland.
