    Join me as I go on a walk around Shinjuku, a major government and business district in Tokyo, exploring the living conditions of the visible homeless. Disclaimer: Everything presented is simply my observations and some anecdotes I've heard. This is the start of my investigation into the homeless issues that Japan faces, so take what I say as uninformed opinion, not fact. This is very early on in my research, but I wanted to share what I've seen so far. What prompted me to investigate homelessness, is that the visible homeless in Tokyo seem quite different than the visible homeless I encountered in Vancouver, Canada or in San Francisco, United States. In Vancouver, you can see many homeless that suffer from mental illness, have drug and drinking addictions, and are survivors of abuse. I...

Japanese/English Three Japanese banks announced a broad alliance plan on Friday that would create the world's largest banking group. Officials of Dai-ichi Kangyo Bank Limited, the Industrial Bank of Japan Limited (I-B-J), and Fuji Bank Limited confirmed the plans, which will be implemented over the next two years, at a news conference in Tokyo. The combined assets of the three banks will exceed 1.2 trillion (t) U-S dollars, surpassing that of Germany's Deutsche Bank and Japan's largest bank, the Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi. I-B-J President Masao Nishimura said he hoped the announcement would affirm Japan as a powerful player in the global market. The bank, along with Dai-ichi Kangyo Bank Limited and Fuji Bank Limited, unveiled plans for an alliance that would create the world's largest banking group - a giant with more than one trillion (t) U-S dollars in assets. The banks said they would consolidate overseas branches as soon as possible in creating the alliance, to be implemented over the next two years. In a joint statement, they said they expected to reduce the combined number of branches by 150 within five years after forming a joint holding company. Over the same time period, the banks pledged to reduce the combined payroll by six-thousand people. SOUNDBITE: (Japanese) "The new group aims to become one of the top five strong players in the global financial market as the representative of Japan by achieving substantial improvement in efficiency and enhancing competitiveness with this combination of the strengths of each bank in different business areas and product lines." SUPER CAPTION: Masao Nishimura, Industrial Bank of Japan President Repeated comparisons by the Japanese media was made to the Citigroup merger last year between Citibank and Travelers Group in the United States, underlining the view that the move was part of a larger international trend. Nihon Keizai Shimbun, Japan's leading business daily, said the shakeup was inevitable due to the current state of its financial industry. Reflecting a widely-held opinion, the Nihon Keizai said there were simply too many banks in Japan - with 17, counting just the ones at the top. The expected alliance would allow the banks to put their retail banking, investment banking and brokerage subsidiaries under common management and cut costs by combining overlapping businesses. The banks will also be able to cut back on information technology investment. One obstacle to the deal, however, may come from the Fair Trade Commission, which will be carefully studying the alliance to see whether it would violate the Anti-Monopoly Law. The commission declined to comment on whether it was consulted by the three banks in advance about their collaboration. If an inquiry is held, the commission will look at the combined shares of units to come under the wing of a planned holding company, as well as the impact on overall competition in the financial sector. The bank groups maintain that restructuring their relationship with each other demonstrates they are willing to tackle the country's financial woes head on. SOUNDBITE (Japanese) "I would like to seek your understanding on this reorganization not as the defensive action, but rather as the offensive measure." SUPER CAPTION: Masao Nishimura, Industrial Bank of Japan President Critics are skeptical that simply creating a bigger bank would not solve Japan's economic problems. Some believe Japanese banks need to cut down on thousands of excessive employees and keep up with their Western competition by coming up with attractive new financial products. and woefully low profit margins.

Amazing and unreal restaurants all over the world and here are a few like the Floating restaurant and the smallest restaurant ever! Subscribe for weekly wacky videos and learn interesting facts about the world with awesome top 10 lists and other amazing videos. 8- World's Smallest RestaurantThe restaurant is called “Just for Two,” and is pretty self-explanatory. It has only one table with room for, you guessed it! Two. If you’re lucky enough to be half of the duo dining at this restaurant then you are in for a treat. You will be feasting on a magnificent Italian meal, waited on hand and foot. Your privacy is important to the staff and the wait staff will only come if summoned by a bell. The restaurant staff aims to please and will even arrange private fireworks and chauffeur service upon request. You will pay for this kind of service though – this experience starts at around $325 per person. 7- MuvBox Shipping Container Restaurant– Daniel Noiseux is the owner of the Muvbox – a restaurant located in Montreal, Canada. At first glance it looks like a plain rectangle, but once the rectangle is unfolded it turns into a beautiful restaurant with outdoor seating and a canopy. Noiseux fitted a kitchen and seating for 28 diners into 28 standard shipping containers with a floor made from recycled tires. The fact that it’s portable means it can be picked up and taken anywhere – an outdoor festival, a new venue, a convention. But what’s really cool is with a push of a button, the restaurant goes from closed up tight to deployed in under 2 minutes. It specializes in local, fresh food – including lobster and duck. 6- Mineshaft Restaurant – Located inside a 115 year old mine shaft at a depth of 1246 feet underground, the idea of the “pop-down” restaurant seemed like the perfect unique dining experience to chef Timo Linnamaki. He says that preparing the food so far below ground was all about being closer to the earth, but it’s definitely the weirdest place he’s ever cooked. Being so far below ground, the outside world disappears and the focus is entirely on the food. The 64 seat restaurant has been fully booked since its inception. 5- Cardboard Restaurant – So, you may have heard of someone living in a cardboard box, but how about dining in one? In Taichung Taiwan, there’s a restaurant called Carton King Restaurant where everything from the seats, to the tables, to the plates, to the cups are all made of cardboard. The whole idea behind an establishment like this is being able to recycle almost everything within it. The point is to remind people that cardboard and paper can be utilized for so many things. The food is said to be subpar and pretty expensive, but you’re paying for the experience – which is a pretty cool one! 4- Bank Vault Restaurant – The old Denver National Bank building is now the Broker Restaurant and the setting for a pretty awesome dining experience. The cherry wood booths where diners can enjoy their meal are the same booths that were once used by bank customers to view their safety deposit boxes years ago. Private rooms include the library, the study, the board room and a main dining area. The wine cellar is even located 35 feet below ground in the original cash vault. 3- Floating Restaurant – The Salt & Sill restaurant is located on a 23 room barge and is a top-rated seafood restaurant specializing in herring and fresh produce. Each of the 23 rooms has outdoor seating areas, and the nicest suite on the barge even has a private roof-top jacuzzi. The reason this barge was made into a bizarre spot for a restaurant- the adjacent land didn’t have room. 2- Airplane Restaurant – When you think of fine dining you may not immediately think of airplane food, but this restaurant, set inside a Douglas DC6 aircraft doesn’t serve your typical airplane food on plastic trays. With a menu consisting of an 8 oz Raptide, Vampire gammon steak, Bomber T-bone steak and Meteor marinade fillet, this 40 seater restaurant is about as unique as you can get. Located at Coventry Airport in the UK, diners can have the opportunity to view the aircrafts original cockpit and summon waiters using the original call buttons, just like you would use to call a stewardess. 1- Monkey Restaurant – Just your average Japanese sake-house style restaurant – or is it? The Kayabukiya Tavern is located just north of Tokyo, Japan and has attracted international attention for its bizarre main attractions. The owner is Kaoro Otsuka and he happens to own two macaque monkeys – who he employed to work at the restaurant. The first monkey is named Yat-Chan and, dressed it a shirt and shorts – takes customers drink orders and drops them at the bar. The second, younger monkey is named Fuku-chan and has the task of bringing hot towels to the diners to clean up before dinner. For their hard work, the monkeys receive boiled beans from customers as tips.

However, the U.S. also provides a multitude of secrecy and tax-free facilities for non U.S. residents It's one of the few places left where advisers are actively promoting accounts that will remain secret from overseas authorities.

Join me as I go on a walk around Shinjuku, a major government and business district in Tokyo, exploring the living conditions of the visible homeless. Disclaimer: Everything presented is simply my observations and some anecdotes I've heard. This is the start of my investigation into the homeless issues that Japan faces, so take what I say as uninformed opinion, not fact. This is very early on in my research, but I wanted to share what I've seen so far. What prompted me to investigate homelessness, is that the visible homeless in Tokyo seem quite different than the visible homeless I encountered in Vancouver, Canada or in San Francisco, United States. In Vancouver, you can see many homeless that suffer from mental illness, have drug and drinking addictions, and are survivors of abuse. In San Francisco, the homeless I encountered were more visible in the well-trafficked areas and were vocal in their begging. In Tokyo, the homeless seem to be quiet, respectful of others, and organized (in that they kept their belonging relatively tidy). They also didn't appear to suffer from apparent mental issues. They seemed to have their act together enough that I figure they would be able to make use of the social safety net and not have to live on the streets. So why are they on the streets? In the video, and even in writing this, I'm very worried about the terminology that I've used. The homeless are marginalized and I don't want to marginalize them even more. So I'm struggling with coming up with the right way to phrase things, and I'm afraid I haven't done the best of jobs. So if it's not apparent, here's my stance. I think we live in wealthy societies and that poorest and unfortunate should be able to live in peace and comfort, as well as given opportunities to ameliorate their situation. How this is achieved, I don't think we quite know yet, otherwise homelessness wouldn't be an issue. I didn't ask this in the video, but what kind of questions around homeless in Tokyo/Japan do you think I should investigating. And as I did ask in the video, what does the visible homeless (and the non-visible as well) look like where you're from?

Natural Sound Asian financial markets are expected to herald the new millennium with a "Y-2-K relief rally" on Monday. Governments, central banks and financial institutions, power, utility, telecommunications and transport companies all had a smooth transition to 2000 - despite fears of the millennium bug. Financial institutions in Japan - including the Bank of Japan, the Tokyo Stock Exchange and other financial industries - began their final drills on Sunday. The aim - to make sure that there would be no problems from the Y-2-K computer bug when businesses return to work on Tuesday. In Japan, New Year's Day through to the 3rd of January is a national holiday and all businesses had officially closed during the period. The Bank of Japan ran tests of its BOJ-NET online system for payments and settlements with the private sector. The BOJ-NET connects the central bank with more than 500 financial institutions to handle fund transfers between current accounts, settlements of foreign exchange transactions and government-bond services. The Japanese Bankers Association ran tests of its Data Communications System of All Banks, which handles credit transfer data. The Tokyo Stock Exchange and the Japan Securities Dealers Association, which runs the over-the-counter stock market, tested connections between their computer trading systems and computers at securities companies. They are planning to run similar tests on Monday. Prime Minister Keizo Obuchi on Sunday said that no major problems related to the Y-2-K glitch were reported in key services as the country moved into the new year. However, he urged his people to stay as vigilant as the government to avoid any major problem that may be caused by the Y2K-related computer glitch. After Obuchi's announcement, some problems were reported to the prime minister's Y2K headquarters. The government said some might be connected to the Y2K bug, but none was serious. Japan's Meteorological Agency reported that some of its systems displayed "100" instead of "00" when the year changed but said operations were not affected. At East Japan Railway, the nation's largest rail company, a Y2K-related computer glitch caused vending machines for prepaid train cards to stop working in 13 stations for part of New Year's Day. The machines have now been fixed.
