 The nightlife quarter of Kabukicho, just east of JR Shinjuku Station, bristles with non-stop activity. Amid the garish flashes of neon are touts cruising for clients, drifting drunks, hostesses hustling off to bars and the occasional gangster tiff. In the late 1960s - a time when young architect Minoru Takeyama was commissioned to design a pair of buildings a block apart for accommodating adult entertainment businesses - it wasn't quite as active.

Jun 13 Marriage to Aussie 'otaku' found in translation (Japan Times)
 For Junko Hirose, her Australian husband, Richard Northcott, is pretty much Japanese when viewed from two aspects. First, he is a Japan "otaku," or nerd. He showed her his treasures - a photo of late pop idol Yukiko Okada, whose suicide in 1986 at the age of 18 made her a legend, and a gown with a huge embroidery of idol Noriko Sakai's name written in kanji - on the first day they met in summer 2006.

Jun 12 Samurai get put through paces (Japan Times)
 Everyone who knows anything about musicals knows they require endless rehearsals in order to be staged successfully.

Jun 12 For good or evil, scalpers are a fact of life (Asahi)
 We are used to seeing hoarse-voiced men calling out 'Got good seats' or 'Have you tickets to spare?' near venues of popular concerts and theatrical performances.
