Saw this today and thought it might be of help to people looking for SIM card options on their next trip to Japan. Japan has always been notoriously difficult when it comes to getting your non-Japan phone to work, but it looks like this article has some good information - hope it's helpful!

Hi Dani,

I know it goes back to at least the early '90s as at least two Japan-resident foreign students both had theirs by then. Anyone else have more info?

He's here to advertise - links to his firearms website in each post. :)

I regularly do Japanese-English translation of Koryu Kenjutsu, sword smithing, etc. as well as website work for a Japanese antique sword trader, and can vouch that it's definitely Wakizashi (脇指).

Are there any copyright issues with using the Bujin graphic? Something I've been wondering for a while myself...

All very good points, Kent.

We are running the latest version of the forum software with CAPTCHA in place, but the CAPTCHA installation is aging a bit so I think your point about switching to question and answer is a good one - will have a look at a new installation. (Will try that as a first measure and see how we go before resorting back to admin-approved account registration.)

Cheers

Shawn

I deleted some more spam posts (and a few more accounts) today, and also went through some of the more advanced forum settings and flipped some switches that will hopefully greatly reduce the problem.

Cheers

It's a direct English translation of Ninpo Taizen. (I was one of the translators, along with Doug Wilson and Paul Masse. We were translating directly out of the Japanese Ninpo Taizen book.)

Best wishes,

Shawn

Thanks to the clean-up crew. :)

I've just gone through and deleted about a dozen threads and a few spammer accounts as well. I think the main issue is that there isn't an appropriate spam-bot checker in place in the account registration form. That's next on my to-do list - thanks for your patience!
