Ghibli Museum is located in Mitaka, a western suburb of Tokyo, Japan, close the Inokashira Park (井の頭公園 Inokashira Koen).
There is no parking space in the museum for cars, but around the museum, actually, around the Park besides the main road you can easily find a cheaper time pay parking area.
If you are accessing it via train, you can use Mitaka Station on the JR Chu-o Line, then take the community bus from south exit of the station.
From 2006/05/20, the museum holds the exhibition of the animation work from Aardman Studio too.
Some short original anime films are showing in the museum too, like The big adventure of Koro, Water Spider Monmon, etc. They are not bad for children.
For me, I like this life-size model robot from the animation Castle in the Sky on top of the Ghibli Museum.

I was very much satisfied with the performance it has in hardware and playing. But I still think there are many things UNIbit should do on software improvement.
- No resume feature for media play, you have to select again and again the next media to play if you switched the functions between music, movie, radio or book reader. Of cause, if you power off the device, you need select the play point again too.
- I didn't find the bookmark function with it
- Don't support folders/categories for music or movie, you can't organize your media files with folders or categories
- Expects synchronization function with PC, so you can organize your media files more efficiently
- Operation is not uniformed, the operation of +/- and <>> sometime confusing
- Key touch feeling is not satisfied, to hard to be pressed
- Layout for +/-, <>> is not rationalized, especially you feel confuse when you are playing games
- MiniSD slot is too shallow, the MiniSD is sticking out, it will be easily removed from the slot

It was too surprise to have known that the Wulihe Stadium will be blown up on Feb. 12, 2007.
2 years ago, during my visiting to Shenyang the first time, I was surprised with her bad condition of the Stadium, which has been established just for 16 years.
This stadium was named as "Lucky place for China football", just after 18 years, this building has to finish her mission.
I am stay at Sheraton Shenyang Lido Hotel now, very nearby the stadium.
Looking at the stadium from my window, I could not even can image the building will be disappeared soon from today...

DaiJiaCun is fabulous Chinese-Thai Restaurant with ethnic minority dancing & music shows for lunch and dinner with Sichuan, Chinese, Thai flavor, which serves Organic mushroom and vegetables aired from Yunnan.
Every night, there is 2 show times for the theater. The times are 17:15 and 19:15, the program is each 1 hour.
I enjoyed the performance very much.
Acrobatics, one of China's oldest art forms, originated during the New Stone Age (6000~2000BC) as part of the game and ceremonies used in sacrificial offerings to ancestors. From then on, people lived in the Yellow River area created art forms similar to modern acrobatics as early as the Eastern Zhou Dynasty (about 770~221BC).
The records on acrobatics could be easily found in books, murals, brick carving and ton carvings of the Han Dyansty(206BC~AD220).
As art for the ages, acrobatics has maintained its allure throughout the time.

Every Wednesday 10:00pm on air!
ハケンの品格(Haken no Hinkaku - the dignity of Haken)
Haruko is a super-woman of Haken OL who earns 3,000 yen/hour (it increases to 3,500yen/hour in today's story).
She leaves office on the dot, never work overtime.
She is cold without cracking a smile but is a good flamingo dancer in her free time(no smile too).
Haken no Hinkaku is a timely dream drama giving good reflection of current Japan society.
The percentage of Haken (temporary employees dispatched by personnel agency) increased remarkable these years. The credibility gap, wall of prejudice between regular employees and Haken is becoming serious society problem in Japan.
This drama creates a hero of Haken - Haruko, with her special view of life, work and relationship of the society, she is a symbol of a cool generation style of life in Japan, things are changing in Japan, this kind of diversity may be coming soon even I don't much believe this kind of hero is really living around us.
And I don't want to miss to watch one story of this drama.

Yesterday midnight, there was a very good NHK documentary from NHK channel, a story of the world biggest search company-google.
I felt very much respect to the google book program. Google is scanning the books in libraries - I think google is creating a special digital history as a pioneer. Without use 1 cent money of tax, google is scanning the past information into HDD, this even couldn't be done by countries...
Spent some time to create this e-xiao account.
Blogger is a very good start point for blog life, it provides many user friendly features for beginner. I will try to created my owned template by using the flexible customization features of Blogger firstly.
Have to spend more time in front of computer :-) !
