I've only seen those exercises in films- Battle Royale infact!
maybe we're progressive here in Hokkaido- we don't even leave the lab when there is a fire alarm :wacko:

Check THIS out Lost (rajio taiso from a gaijin's perspective)...there shld be better or official video footages but this one's good enough for its charm...



LOLOL! The thought of my white coated colleagues and me standing in the snow doing our morning exercises would crack me up! I love the twee music that accompanies them. :wacko:

;) The thought would crack me up too...just think-frostbites but it can't really be that cold- Hokkaido, right (cold for us is -20 celsius and below) and that music can stay with you forever :P (better than Bach's) .....time to do the exercises, hajimashooka, Lost-san.... ( and the massacre continues.....) :P

My morning has started with everything I ordered last couple of weeks arriving, well, at once. Not really at once, even, but in five minute intervals :P If I waited a bit, I wouldn't have to run downstairs several times :P
In this case, it seems, being lazy would pay off better! :wacko:

Look on the bright side - morning started with such a good morning exercise. If my lab were a few stories high, I would have probably lost some of my weight I have been putting from the lunch thread ;)

But BB, don't you do the usual morning 'radio exercise'..isn't this still a tradition or have you been hiding yourself while your colleagues are doing it? :P Eat your lunch but do the exercise.....btw, I don't see any new pics of your lunches....

One more reason to believe that you are 'one of them'. :wacko:

I am not 'one of them' BB....I'd rather watch than do the morning exercises so I can't be one of them (but, otoh I'm very polite, respectful, industrious, loyal, clean and orderly, etc etc etc plus I can make a mean sushi) oh yeah, I'm beginning to think that I'm 'one of them' :P

It sure isn't as cold as -20C, infact its above freezing today with rain(!) forecast, before it gets all snowy again. Still the slushy coldness does not inspire radio excercises. I'll save it for my Wii in the evening, give my neighbours something new to watch :P (tanoshimi!- more slaughtering).
I knew it! I knew it! Well, not in the sense of having the slightest idea, but I knew there was something I didn't know.

more than this should be better discussed under 'evolution and darwinism' Rajio exercises and 'itadakimasu'/'gotisosamadeshita' are for the kids only :wacko:

Yes...eventually usually the first week of May where I am - I think its the end of May/ beginining of June at the top of Hokkaido(now you can work out where I am from the cherry blossom forecast maps!). We don't have the lovely big bamboo grooves though- just lots of stumpy dwarf bamboo in forests (along with the Ezo bears)

It was a good decision to restart my PhD studies after all.

We don't need the sakura forecast maps to figure out where you are Lost, isn't there only one national university in Hokkaido? I just wonder if the cherry blossoms are as spectacular as in the warmer provinces in the south or if they last longer....and we don't have the Ezo bears...zannen desu (and the decimation continues :lol:)

Seriously- are you sure you're not one of "them", how many outside of Japan know about national universities?
I'm not sure our sakura is as impressive as other parts of Japan- Himeji castle, I think our campus is very pretty (we have lots of sakura) and in the mountains you get sudden pink flashes from the wild mountain zakura (deeper pink) which is very pretty too. As to whether it lasts any longer I dunno- about a week of full blossoms probably.
I"m sure you have plenty of other bears in Canada- I nearly met one near Lake Louise once! (kowaii ne.... the massacre continues)
I knew it! I knew it! Well, not in the sense of having the slightest idea, but I knew there was something I didn't know.

And seriously, I'm not one of "them" (how many times do I have to tell you BB :P ), otherwise my romaji would be much better :P , besides, it's easy enough to know most of these japan info- thru the web or by talking with japanese postdocs or those who did their grad studies in Japan. I heard that there's usually only one publicly-funded university for each of the prefecture and I'm pretty sure most ryugakusei (foreign students) will be placed there.

I've been to some hanami (cherry blossom viewing) in Osaka and Kyoto and they're really spectacular, I esp like the weeping type and those with the dark pink blossoms. Makes one appreciate what the cherry blossoms represent- impermanence of life, transient beauty etc., lots of barbecue smoke and very loud music making the flowers dizzy :lol:…the eternal struggle between man and nature….

Btw, you had close encounters with what- a grizzly, a black, Yogi? (kowakunaii but kawaii deshoo ne…release the wrecking ball Lost-san :P)

She missed it!!!!!!!!!!!! She is not 'one of them' I can say now . . all those U said are true . . but the real spirit of Hanami is in spirit itself - litres and litres of pure, transient beer under clear blue sky. :P
