bento_box: KFC Christmas (KFC Christmas)

Okay, so this isn’t a ‘review’, exactly, but I wasn’t sure what to call it. I’m watching a documentary called, “Pray For Japan”, in which Stu Levy does a beautiful job at documenting the clean up and relief efforts in Ishinomaki, Miyagi after March 2011’s tsunami tragedy.

Then there are the heroes – like the principal and teachers at a middle school who worked tirelessly until they were able to track down all of their students in the aftermath of the destruction.

This film is a tear jerker, really it is, and it’s beautifully shot. This isn’t so much a review as a rave – it’s on Netflix right now, go watch it. And make sure to pray for Japan.

If you’re a Japanophile, like I am, but haven’t had the opportunity to go to and visit Japan in person, you may be wondering what a life in Japan would be like for gaikokujin / gaijin (yes, I know some people find those terms offensive, but I don’t and it refers to me so calm down, lol) like us?

Well, some awesome person has put a full-length documentary on Youtube called, “A Life In Japan” that follows the lives of several non Japanese trying to make it in Japan. Have a look!
