Dear Edward-san,

Do you look for so-called BCL radios? In that case, please check first "Fuji Musen" ( ). Upstairs you can find second-hand equipment for ham. You should also check "Rocket" main shop for ham(

The afore-mentioned shops are relatively big. You can also find many other small shops or stalls in "Akihabara Radio Center" (, a sort of apartment house for small shops and stalls next to the Akihabara JR Station, and "Tokyo Radio Depart" (

Unfortunately, their web sites are all in Japanese ONLY. However, I believe you can find the way to those shops, as they are not far away from the station.

Dear Oka-san,

I read one of your article talking about how you get interested in Ham Radio, very interesting.
I collect radios especially short wave receiver(portable or desktop). I am making a trip to Tokyo next week for business, after the business trip, I would like to extend a day and drop by JR Akihabara train station to look for radio and desktop communication receiver, if possible please advise me which are the shops selling all these receivers. The most I have will be one day in Akibahara. Looking forward to hear from you.

Dear Chris-san,

Thank you for your posting. Frankly speaking, the restaurants which I report on this site are not much representative. They are rather my personal favorites or happen to be in my familiar environment, though some of them are in fact the bests in Tokyo.

If you need good restaurants recommendations, I try to meet your expectation as much as possible, only if you tell me exactly what you want !

Dear Oka-san,

Read with enjoyment your postings of restaurants you‘ve been to in Japan. My family and friends
love visiting Japan and always are on the look out for new places to try so I‘ll be sure to put
your recommendations down for the next time we are there.

Dear Mark-san,

Sorry, I do not know any hunter at all. Maybe you are the first I know as hunter!
It might be better to contact Dainihon Ryoyukai (all Japan hunters‘ association).

Ryoyukai has its branch office in Shizuoka. I would recommend you to call it (in Japanese, of course!).

Dear Markus-san,

Sorry for not having responded to you for a long time. I failed to check "visitors‘ messages" for months.
Concerning your question, I believe that the notion of "park" was introduced from the West and the first example of park was "Hibiya Park". There are numerous studies about Hibiya Park and I myself read some of them, though I do not have them with me here now.

I would like to recommend you to check the web site of "Tokyo-to Koen Kyokai". It publishes hundreds of books and among them more than 40 studies about individual parks. Please read one of them and you can find source literatures you should study further.

Dear Oka-san,

I live on Okinawa and this year have been planning to hunt deer at Gotemba. Unfortunately, the person I was going to hunt with is sick and will not hunt this season. However, I already have my Shizuoka hunting liscence and airline ticket. Can you connect me with anyone in the Izu area that I can hunt with in November.

Thank you.

Can you give any advice to literature about the historical development of a Tokyo park?
from MarkusMon, 16.09.2013 - 01:22:54 JSTReply
Dear Oka-san,

I´m doctoral student at institute of modern japan in duesseldorf (germany) and I´m interested in the historical development of the Tokyo parks and like to do a detailed description/study about the development of one of Tokyos parks. But unfortunately there seems to be rare literature about that topic. (I mean detailed, deeper-going, historical, systematic literature) If you have time to give any advice to literature I would be very very happy!!

thank you so far,
yours sincerely,
Markus Pondus

Dear Oka-san,
Thank you very much for taking the time to respond to my inquiry. It is very unfortunate that the management of You-Be changed and you are also struggling with the issue of care for a parent who suffers from dementia. I will continue my quest and check back on your website from time to time in case there is any new information.
Kind regards,
