    Yeah, man. The purple sports coats are a dead giveaway. Or even the gaudy shades. It's like they need to call some national meeting and reiterate that 1986 needs all of its jackets, jeans and...

    A couple of years back, I went to Toyama-ken to this popular onsen hotel for the afternoon. It was great. It was snowing heavily and the outside bath was incredible.

    I did the usual: pay,...

    Anyone in here done it? I'm slotted for this year's run. And I'm a little nervous.

    Man, I've met more than a few yakuza since I arrived here three years ago. From the newbies with spiked, multi-colored hair and rodeo clown outfits to the older, much more conservative suit and tie...

    Holy cow! Goldmine. Thanks a million for the leads. Those will no doubt help to answer some questions...and create a few more.

    The aforementioned *SF buddy* was in 1/10th SFG last time I talked to him...can't see him rolling in the gym, though. You know many of those guys? This world coulda just gotten a little bit smaller.

    Yeah, man, kendo-ish. Sword stuff, but still done with only practice gear. You could call it kendo, but I think the relationship would only be superficial.

    In any case, I do hope you can train...
