Lumine Yurakucho shopping complex opens
A new branch of shopping complex operator Lumine Co. opened Friday morning in Tokyo's Ginza shopping district where a number of major department stores vie with one another.

The store with eight floors above ground and two below opened about 15 minutes ahead of the initially scheduled 11 a.m. as a crowd of some 5,000 shoppers formed a long line outside the building.

The new Lumine store represents the first major push by the operator, an affiliate of East Japan Railway Co., to do business outside JR East station buildings.

Its tenants include clothing retailers stocking a wide range including luxury items, as well as garments bearing the labels of up-and-coming designers. Its food outlet mix has been also devised to meet a variety of consumer needs including working women from the nearby Marunouchi business district shopping for precooked dishes and snacks, the company says.

The building's floor space totals 11,300 square meters and it accommodates 107 tenants.

Steve Jobs Bio on Android
I'm reading Kindle book "Steve Jobs" on Korean smartphone.

It is ironic to read Steve's biography on Andorido which he execrated, but it may means the world is not designed to go down on a genius' knees.

Anyway, the price difference between Hardcover, Kindle Edition and Japanese translation is a problem.

Steve Jobs (Hardcover)  $17.88
Steve Jobs (Kindle Edition) $17.29
Steve Jobs (Japanese translation - Hardcover) approx. $52.67



Steve Jobs(ハードカーバー版)$17.88≒1,354円
Steve Jobs(キンドル版)$17.29≒1,309円
スティーブ・ジョブズ (日本語版) T+II=3,990円

Baby penguin attracts visitors
A newborn emperor penguin was unveiled to the public at an animal park in Shirahama, Wakayama Prefecture, the only facility in Japan that has succeeded in breeding such birds.

The baby penguin was born Oct. 18 using a special incubator at Wakayama Adventure World, one of two facilities in Japan offering public viewing of emperor penguins, as the 14th emperor penguin there.

According to Adventure World, it is difficult to breed emperor penguins as it requires an environment similar to penguins' natural habitat of Antarctica for hatching.

The baby, the sixth emperor penguin born at the animal park, has been fed ground herring and other seafood five times a day.

Haruki Murakami's 1Q84 arrives to New York
The taxi's radio was turned to a Classical FM broadcast. Janacek's Sinfonietta - probably not the ideal music to hear in a taxi caught in traffic....(Quote: "1Q84" by Haruki Murakami)

Cover of 1Q84 English version

An English translation of Haruki Murakami's latest novel "1Q84" hit New York bookstore shelves two years after the best-selling book was released in Japanese, with some shops holding events to celebrate the book's arrival and opening their doors at midnight for enthusiastic fans.

In Japan, the novel quickly became a sensation, with its first printing selling out the day it was released, and reaching sales of one million within a month.

At an event on Monday evening at Three Lives & Company in Greenwich Village, about 70 people came to be the first ones to buy the book, according to store manager Toby Cox.

Meanwhile Brooklyn's Word bookstore held a ''read-a-thon'' where fans were encouraged to share their favorite passages from past Murakami books while counting down to the release at midnight.

Originally three volumes in Japanese, the English translation by Harvard professor Jay Rubin and Philip Gabriel of Arizona University was published by Random House, Inc. in a 944-page single volume.

Readers were looking forward to starting the new book and seeing how it related to Murakami's past works as well as other literature. Customer reviwes on Amazon.com

The story, set in Tokyo in 1984, takes place over the course of one year. As reality begins to unravel, the lives of the two main characters, Aomame, a hired killer, and Tengo, a writer, begin to converge.

Disney streams trailer for Studio Ghibli's Arrietty film
Disney began streaming a trailer for the North American-dubbed version of Hiromasa Yonebayashi and Studio Ghibli's Arrietty film. The film, which will be titled "The Secret World of Arrietty", will receive a theatrical run in North America starting on February 17.
The Secret World of Arrietty

The movie originally opened in Japanese theaters in July 2010 with supervision by Ghibli co-founder Hayao Miyazaki(宮崎駿). The film also received a different English dub in the U.K. and ran in theaters there in August.
The Secret World of Arrietty

The film re-imagines Mary Norton's 1952 novel The Borrowers by moving the story to a Tokyo suburb. The story revolves around Arrietty, a member of the "little people" who live under the floorboards of a regular human family's home, and their struggle to remain hidden from the human "beans."

Bridgit Mendler

Producer Frank Marshall revealed in January that Bridgit Mendler is voicing the title character. Joining her in the cast are Amy Poehler, Will Arnett, David Henrie, and Carol Burnett.
