Anniversary Event of the Opening of the Port of Yokohama


Anniversary Event of the Opening of the Port of Yokohama "Expo Y150" The year 2009 marks the 150th anniversary of the 1859 opening of the Port of Yokohama. To commemorate the anniversary, many events will be held based on the theme "Set Sail" to hold aloft the banner of future Yokohama.
One of the highlights during the expo is the world renowned French spectacle art group " La Machine" bringing their street theater to Japan for the first time. The centerpiece is a 37-ton, standing twelve meters tall, and shoots water jets from its maw to represent silk, giant robotic spider.
The bayside night event " Home" depicts the importance of protecting the environment and beauty of the earth using images of light and sound.

12000 yen Teigaku Kyuufukin, Economic Stimulus Payouts

12000yen economic stimulus payouts To revive the economy, Japan's parliament passed a contentious 4.8 trillion yen (US$52.2 billion) extra budget in January that includes business tax credits and a cash payout of 12000 yen per adult, 20000 yen for the elderly and children under age 12, including foreigner residents holding a permanent residency or a spousal visa, with a registered address from February 2009.
Thumbs up to the stimulus plan, hotels, tours operators and retailers began offering various package plan priced at 12000yen to push sales.
Nothing special about the offers found here. I like the eye-catching design of the pamphlet, a reminder to those foreigners who contributed by paying their taxes however do not qualify for this sum of money because they do not have a PR or married a Japanese.
