Can someone comment on how Tokyo is at the moment? I'm planning to move to Japan soon, so I'm trying to figure out how impacted Tokyo is. A couple months ago, a friend recommended against Tokyo (in favor of Kyoto, etc.). Is it back to normal? I'm having trouble imagining surviving the Tokyo summer without air conditioning.
I plan to get rid of a lot of my cheaper furniture, but is there some general advice on storing nicer stuff? My understanding that there's the regular storage units and 'climate controlled'. Some of the stuff I need to store is valuable and somewhat fragile. Should I be taking out insurance? I don't want to end up like Sampras. I'd get rid of more, but I'm moving my whole family so it's more than just my sentimentality to deal with.
I searched the archive, but I didn't come up with anything so here goes. Does anyone have any advice about renting storage units? I'll be out of the country for a year so I'm planning to put my stuff in storage (about 3 bedrooms worth).
I figure this is the thread for random architecture questions, so here goes. Why is siding so popular? Is it just a cheap way to weatherproof a house? It seems both decorative and protection, but can't the house's walls just be made weatherproof? I was struck today by the fact that I don't know why it's on so many houses.
Anyone see "The Parking Lot Movie"? It's pretty interesting (and streaming on Netflix). Also, is that "Lo Lifes" documentary out? The trailer looked interesting, but I couldn't figure out if it's been released.

I'm not going to get into an argument over taste, but I was glancing around the web to see whether I "really don't know sake". The "vast majority" of this site's top 100 seem to be...
Quote: Originally Posted by nahneun wrong. some sake are better served warm because the flavor notes only open up after having been warmed enough. it's not sah-kay either. it's sah-keh Sure, some are better, but the vast majority are better served cold. As for the pronunciation, I just trying to get people away from the American pronunciation (sah-kee/key), which, unfortunately, is now in the dictionary.
Quote: Originally Posted by _ABB_ Do you take your sake warm? Cold? How can I differentiate good sake from bad? Cold or cool. Heating, in my opinion, kills the flavor. I'd rather think of it as more similar to a beer (limited shelf life and vastly better when cold). If you really want to taste the flavors, drink it room temperature. It's really a shame that almost all Americans think that sake (sah-kay) is a hot beverage -- it's probably...
