Carriers in Japan are teaming up to offer foreign tourists easier access to free Wi-Fi.The firms like SoftBank and KDDI seek to start the service across the country in about a year’s time. Currently, free Wi-Fi is available at a growing number of locations, including train stations, hotels, public facilities, and shops. The trend comes as foreign visitors have complained about hefty bills for Japanese mobile services and Japan like to change this right now and aiming for the upcoming Tokyo olympic games in 2020.
Beach Boys is in town and I documented the Tokyo visit for
Japan music producer Kaz Sakamoto and a Japan record company.
The focus was on Jeffrey Foskett and Mike Love talking about
memories and their many visits to Japan throughout the years.
Three of the old-timers are still playing in the band.
A moment in time and lots of fun hanging out with the Beach
Boys for a couple of days in Tokyo.
January 11 is the day when Japanese teens celebrate being adults. They turned 20 year! They guys dress up smart and the girls wear kimonos. This photo is a frame from a 4K video scene. The story about Japanese girls and boys turning grownups will be featured as one of ten stories in a series with the working title Japan Stories. I will have the series streamed on Internet. Probably on a podcast site. I don´t have one yet, but stay tuned. I will tell you when the new site is up and running.
