I want to get a puppy but I don't want to support puppy mills. What do you recommend?
There are a lot of different places where you can get puppies on the island. Eventually you are going to encounter some that are not necessarily the most legitimate. Although I do not have a full run down of what places are more legitimate than others here's my thoughts. I have seen some good pet stores and some not so great ones. I have also seem some good breeders and others who are no better than puppy mills. In my opinion each puppy out there deserves a good home and it's hard for me to turn away a puppy who looks like it wants love just because of where it came from. In my opinion if it's healthy and if you want to love it go for it. Personally the dogs that I have gotten I got for free from people who were giving them away. That's not to say that I would not purchase from anyone in particular but in my past experiences I have found puppies who needed a home at no cost.
How was the JetStar Flight Experience?
I very much enjoyed the experience. The only thing that I found irritating is that when I was in Narita we needed to get off the plane, get on a buss and then go to the terminal which then was the same case then getting on the jet on my way out. It wasn't that it was a problem but like I mentioned in another review it would have been nice if someone would have notified us that this would be the way we would be getting on and off the plane so I could have prepared more manageable carry on items.
Can you do a video about certificate of eligibility?
When it comes to things that deal with legally getting here I prefer to not try and go into those details. This is because I want to make sure I am not giving out inaccurate information. My recommendation is to go through the authorities in these areas. Sorry for any inconvenience.
What is in natto? Is it fish?
No it is not fish. Natto is fermented soy beans.
Is it as nice as people say to travel on a plane throughout Japan?
Yes. It is very nice to travel throughout the country. The airlines are great even when the are discount airlines. They treat customers very well and the airlines are extremely clean (yes I have traveled on various airlines back and forth through Japan) and the airports are for the most part easy to use and user friendly.
76.47 US ? That's expensive for one night for one person.
When traveling throughout Japan it is important to remember that the cost of items and services don't change based on the strength of your local currency. When I first got here to Japan the yen rate was 140yen to the USD which was nice but when the US economy started to tank hat got less and less now we're sitting at about 76 yen to the USD. Of course this doesn't change the amount that people charge in Japan for a room (for example). I got my room at the Narita Rest Hotel for 5000 something yen for that one night which was extremely affordable considering that the average is 15,000 yen per night per person.
I've begun to use the little Google man to see how to get around.
I love the little google man. I use it all the time to determine where I need to go but unfortunately when I got lost trying to get to my hotel it as just trying to find the buss itself. The hotel was not necessarily in walking distance so I was supposed to get on a buss. Unfortunately I did't know what bus number to get on and every time someone walked up to me asking where I needed to go they didn't understand what it was I was talking about. This was frustrating but nonetheless when I called Russ he helped me find the bus number I needed.
From visiting both parks did you see a lot of Stich and Angel merch? Did you meet any characters other than the ones at Chef Mickey's?
I did notice that there was a lot of Stich merch but not as much Angel. Also I did not meet any characters other than the ones at the character breakfast. I had the chance to but I didn't want to wait in line or run up to a character and push a little kid out of the way. I had seen many characters in my day and I think every kid should have the chance to do the same.
I grew up near the original Disneyland in Anehiem and it's a shame that other Disneyland locations seem much better.
I have never been to the original Disneyland but I spent a lot of time in Walt Disney World. I too think that it is a shame but I do think that t is good that there are still places where you can experience Disney the way it was meant to be experienced (in my honest opinion). For me Tokyo Disney is that place. It brings back memories of when I first experienced Disney with characters everywhere and everything Disney themed. I will be writing more about this later so stay tuned.
77 may be cold in Naha but is it cold in Tokyo?
To be completely honest 77 isn't really cold in Naha but it is the lack of humidity which made it seem so cold for me. Now I do not believe that 77 is cold for Tokyo, in fact I think that it is rather warm for Tokyo because most of the people were in the area were dressed for summertime and looking very hot not to mention I couldn't seem to find a good long sleeved shirt that was worth getting so I could stay warm.
How much does it cost to live in okinawa in USD?
This is a complicated question. It depends on a lot of factors on where you work, where you live and how you live.
How are the disney parks different from the ones in the US?
Tokyo Disney Resort is very similar to Walt Disney World 1994/5. There are characters everywhere even walking through the parks. There is also disney theming everywhere. I will be making an in depth post about this here in the near future so stay tuned for that.
