Photo-3, which is very modern and clean. Looking into a book store, we find there are many journals and books some translated from and many remaining in Japanese,
Photo-2. On the street, we can see many billboards for cram schools, Photo-1, Photo-2 for Japanease language and even mathematics!
At Taoyuan International Airport, I purchase local newspapers to discern articles on the late Lower House election results in Japan,
Photo-1 Hatchet women foxes,
They are extremely well-informed about Japan, even better than the Japanese.
We return to Narita at 10:00PM JST, and head for my's house with my souvenir purchased at DFS at the hotel, a music CD entitled Bailamos! performed by Taiwanese jazz group named The Metamorphosis Jazztet, some awarded a scholarship from the Berklee College of Music in Boston and majored in Jazz Performance (their official website). Actually, I am listening to their music during daily diagnostic pathology routine.
