Science & Technology

Tsukuba is a very atypical city in Japan. So atypical that till Auust 24, 2005 there was not a train station called Tsukuba. Train stations in the Archipelago are the alpha and the omega of any possible social activity. Tsukuba is also atypical because when you throw a stone you surely will hit a Ph.D... .It is home -once again, after 10 years- since April 2003.

    The only option is to become a train driver in France. Mandatory retirement at 55... But perhaps Monsieur Sarkozy will put a stop to that!

    thank you for the warm welcome to the golden palace, m. i'm looking for a tour to the supreme leader's home. i hear the propaganda tours are terrific including nightly karaoke for the western tourists because there is nothing else to do!

    Very interesting. I enjoy reading your tips because they give such a personal insight into a foreign person living in another country other than their native one...like me in Greece:) So true, your comments.

    This city has more pics than Istanbul. Scary! You have to come Istanbul again amigo.
