wasabi_edition

Nice little illustration which I found at Netvibes. Netviebes Wasabi Edition is a new product which gives you to the best of both worlds: a personal dashboard (the best way to organize your feeds, widgets and friends) and the world’s fastest reader (easier to read new content). No reason to switch between multiple applications, when you can have everything you need all on one page!

IESU

Posted by rod - 18.09.2009

iesu1

The best way to have fun, pay less than you owe to a Japanese and still keep your little finger.

iesu2

Of course we have the best service. In a restaurant that usually serves kung fu fighters, samurais and kamikaze we would never mistreat a client.

iesu3

With such fast delivery, even our Brazilian delivery boys have oriental eyes.

iesu4

In Japan the food is so delicious that they are 12 hours ahead of us just to have lunch earlier.

A day in the life of Japan: On June 7, 1985, 100 photographers from around the world set out to cover Japan. This, however, is the first such coverage of a non-Western, non-English-speaking country. The color photographs are sumptuously reproduced and every one holds our attention. The pictures are arranged chronologically, from early morning until late at night. A map of Japan shows where each was taken. Photographers are credited next to their pictures, and biographies of participants follow the picture essay, as does a story about their experiences taking these 300 pictures, chosen from some 135,000 exposures. The range of subjects covered is enormous and shakes up our notions about Japan. Highly recommended. First published 1985 by William Collins Sons & Co. Ltd. Found via designyoutrust.com
