The Great Touhoku Earthquake: One Year Later

This Sunday marks the first anniversary of the terrible 9.0 earthquake and tsunamis which caused so much pain and loss of life in the Touhoku region of Japan. The quake was the strongest ever recorded here, moving the country 2.4 meters towards North America and slowing the Earth's rotation slightly. Japan is one of the most earthquake-prone countries in the world, and if it had only faced the quake, it would have come through with flying colors thanks to its excellent building codes. It was the unprecedented waves that did the real damage, an unstoppable wall of water that reached as high as 40 meters (133 feet) and stretched 10 km inland in places. Now the names of towns like Kuji, Ofunato and Namie live in infamy as regions which were greatly damaged by the disaster -- in the single hardest-hit area, half the town of Minami-sanriku's 18,000 inhabitants were carried away by the waters.
While March 11 marked a terrible tragedy, there were bright spots, too. Television images of people calling out for loved ones, fearing the worst yet being reunited with their family members in the end. A baby, found alive and unhurt in the midst of so much destruction. One happy tale was the "Miracle of Kamaishi," a town in windswept Iwate Prefecture that had strictly adhered to a regiment of disaster preparedness drills in its schools when most other towns were lulled into a sense of security by their offshore breakwaters. As a result, 98.8% of the town's 2900 children were able to evacuate safely. The aftermath of the destruction was touching, too, as the entire world moved to help Japan get back on her feet, from the U.S. military's "Operation Tomodachi" relief mission to the huge amount of help from the Red Cross and people like you. The popular Japanese picture sharing site Pixiv was filled with images of support by artists from Japan and all around the world. Although the new Japanese tourism slogan of "Japan. Thank you." is somewhat cryptic and odd-sounding, the country is very thankful for the help she received.
(Speaking of thanks, March 9 is called "thank you day" in Japan since san-kyu sounds like "thank you" when pronounced in Japanese. Hatsune Miku's name kanji can also be read as san-kyu, so today is known as Miku's Day by Vocaloid fans, too.)

I Lost My Japanese Wife To South Korea

This weekend is a special one for me. Mrs. J-List has gone with a friend to South Korea, so I have the house to myself, which means I can sit around in my underwear playing video games and drink an extra six-pack of beer if I'm so inclined. (Married men know the joy I'm talking about.) Like many women in Japan today, my wife has been caught up in the Hanryu ("Korean style") boom, watching Korean dramas for several hours a day, following K-POP bands and cooking lots of exotic Korean foods for me. It's especially amusing to hear her talk about why Korean dramas are better than Japanese dramas -- the more dramatic stories and engaging characters that draw you in -- which always sound like me talking about why I was attracted to Japanese animation in the 70s and 80s. She also likes Korean actors, who are more hardened and manly than Japanese "talents" dominated by effeminate Johnny's-kei stars. One big difference between Japan and South Korea is that over there, every man is required to serve two years in the military, which probably toughens them up compared to the "herbivore" guys in Japan. If you're interested in K-POP music [iTunes link], consider the iTunes Japan prepaid cards we offer, which are the most popular item Koreans buy from J-List.


There's a lot to like about female K-POP bands, IMHO.

Funny Place Names Around the World: Eromanga, Chinko, Boin

There are some pretty hilarious place names in the world, like Hell, Michigan, Hookersville, West Virginia or Lord Berkeley's Knob, Scotland. There are some that sound funny to the Japanese, too. The second largest city in Idaho is Nampa, which happens to be a common slang term that roughly means "girl hunting," what bored young people in Japanese cities usually do on weekends. The Boyne Valley in Australia causes snickering when rendered into katakana, since boin is the sound of soft, round things associated with females going, well, "boing." There's a mountain called Kintamani in Indonesia, amusing since kintama means "gold balls" and represents something very dear to most men; the Chinko River in Africa is also amusing, since chinko is a common word for the male member. The most common "catch-all" Japanese insult is baka, meaning "stupid," but in Osaka they prefer the term aho, and I'm sure the town of Ajo, Arizona gets at least a few additional tourists each year because of this name. But the strangest accidental place name would have to be Eromanga, a mining town that's the farthest point from the sea in Australia, with a name that sounds like manga comics that are naughty. I am totally going there someday.


Road trip to Eromanga! Who's with me??

Seichi Junrei: Making an Anime Pilgrimage

One of the more enjoyable aspects of watching anime in the 21st century is seichi junrei or "making a pilgrimage to the Holy Land," fanspeak for visiting locations from famous anime series. Pretty much every anime these days is set in a real place, and if like you can hunt down all the actual location spots for Steins;Gate in Akihabara, search for Menma in the town of Chichibu, Saitama Prefecture or even explore the windswept seaside town seen in the Air anime and eroge (though sometimes you can take anime location viewing too far). While anime locations are usually in some far-off corner of Japan, you never know when they'll turn up in surprising places, like when I learned that Nichijou just happened to be set in J-List's hometown of Isesaki (the Daiku Burger restaurant is a stone's throw from my office window), or the episode of I Have Few Friends in which the characters go to a pool that I've taken my kids to many times. Sometimes people in other parts of the world can get in on the fun, for example a J-List customer who was overjoyed to see the gorgeous anime Fractale was based in her hometown of Galway, Ireland, and fans in London can explore the K-On! movie locations. The other evening I started watching the innovative horror film Paranormal Activity and was surprised to see that it was shot in San Diego, not far from my home there.


It's fun to make "pilgrimages" to famous places.

We Love Matsuri (Japanese Festivals)

One of my favorite Japanese words is matsuri meaning festival, which in Japan is an excuse to wear traditional yukata, eat delicious foods and basically have a great time. Matsuri celebrations are generally a regional thing, with each area holding unique events according to local traditions. Some of the more famous festivals include the Nebuta Festival in Aomori, marked with extravagant floats, the 1100 year old Gion Matsuri in Kyoto, which started out as a purification ritual to appease the gods and protect the land from earthquakes and fires, and the infamous Kanamara Matsuri in Chiba, the Festival of the Steel Phallus, a fertility celebration of...something. There's also Tanabata, a festival based on a Chinese folk tale about two lovers named Hikoboshi and Orihime (the stars Vega and Altair) who are separated by the "River of Heaven" (the Milky Way) and can only be together one day a year. The joy foreigners feel when going to their first Japanese festival is accurately captured in the currently running anime AnoNatsu (Waiting in that Summer), when Ichika -- who is about as much a gaijin as you can get, being an alien and all -- falls in love with everything she sees there.
Fun fact: the kanji for matsuri (祭) means "funeral" in Chinese, and they wonder what the hell is wrong with Japanese people, dancing around and celebrating such a sad event.


Foreigners (and aliens) love Japanese festivals.
