comment Should I make reservations at a bar in Japan?
Well, it's a hotel and since there's a front bar (I assume it's an open bar) a back bar (of which Eden Hall is), naturally one would expect to make a reservation there since the space is limited.

comment Can I read my GMail while traveling in China?
When I was in Beijing, China this past January, I noticed email on a mobile phone (via wifi only) pushed via gmail's POP3 server seems to though without the hitch, even if the website keep timing out.

comment Does female sword fighting as entertainment still exist in Japan?
I was under the impression that (traditional) onna kengeki (女剣劇, lit. women sword theater) was a form of chambara drama (a form of martial arts drama) and taishu engeki (popular theater known for cross-dressing) derived from skinkokugeki (lit. new national theater), known for realistic sword fighting and sword play. Women either dressed up and took on male roles (wielded swords) or took on female roles (wielding swords), fight other male characters (usually played by women). Somewhere down the line it might have been "eroticized" as to increase appeal.
