Thanks for posting everyone.  I enjoy reading you thoughts and impressions.  I just thought I would add something about my Saturday night.  I ended up mostly riding around town on my bike trying to get a feel for Nagoya and what is here.  Some interesting discoveries: a surf shop; a skate park; a gathering of Brazillian-Japanese singing, playing instruments and doing some sort of martial arts dance; breakdancers; fifty students practicing a mass choreographed dance; and several vegetarian friendly restaurants.  I would recommend checking out the dancers on another weekend evening- very cool.  See you all tomorrow.
