    Awesome! I remember playing Grinnell in soccer when I was in High School, and my best friend broke his leg on our senior year against them. Of course this has nothing to do with the college there, but I came from Winterset, which is about 30 min. south of Des Moines. Ah, good times. And we won that game too! So, what year did you graduate and hopefully you partied?

    I went to Iowa State University, and had a great time there. I've always loved Iowa, but yet I like to travel the world.

    Small world after all!

    There was no partying at Grinnell College. I hardly ever studied in high school and got all A's but at Grinnell I struggled to get B's and C's. It was a tough school. I graduated in '83. LOL! Yes, I'm old. . . . A teammate of mine from high school track team went to Iowa State in Ames for the veterinary science program so I went and visited him there once. Even worked out in the college weight room before hitting the bars.

    If you lived close to Des Moines, which mall did you go to the most?

    Merle Hay, Valley West, or South Ridge? LOL!

    I have to say that I love all from Japan, all. The first thing I knew was the manga and anime but after that I have been knowing more and more things about that great country. The music, culture, the people, the beautiful places,....
    I hope someday I will go there
    I was unfulfilled by the constantly overflowing passions
    If only just for a little while... I want to return to human form
    ... just for you.

    Sorry I haven't replied in awhile, but yeah I used to go to Valley West because it was closest, and South Ridge for the Carmike Cinema. Did you know that they have a new mall that is going to be in Des Moines? It will have over 70 stores, hotels, large sit-down restauraunts, and a Century Cineplex with 20 theatres! IT'S ENORMOUS! Which did you go to?

    I love Japan for the amount of effort Japanese put into the things they do...and going into great details to make it right..

    The beautiful bento at train stations, flower arrangment, home improvement ideas, the much work going inside the kitchen just to provide a simple bowl of soba.. and the country side life..

    simply awesome country (but i didn't like crowded tokyo...)

    I agree with you. They do put a lot of effort in doing things. Sometimes it gets annoying like putting out the futon or cooking. Simplicity is not always the best policy but I do appreciate the effort.

    I also wanted to add that i love sumo.

    Most Japanese consider themselves secular.
    Religion, in the western sense, is not a big part of their lives.

    Most famous? On this site it says Neuschwanstein is the most famous. I don't know which is, but Neuschwanstein surely looks better.

    Hmm, in Japan Neuschwanstein seems to be very famous. Hordes of Japanese tourists invade the place every year.

    But not to get too much off topic: I wonder if there is the same differentiation regarding castles in Japan as there is in Germany. English castle translates into German Burg or Schloss. A Burg has mainly defensive purposes, it's more of a bastion or fortress, but also a residence. A Schloss has more representative residential purposes almost without defences, more like a palace but not quite a palace.

    When I looked at a German-Japanese dictionary I got 城 (じょう) for both Burg & Schloss. But for Schloss I also found 宮殿 (きゅうでん). Which doesn't help me much, since I cannot read Japanese.
    As it seems the latter represents more the meaning of palace. Looking at pictures (BTW, nice site) of Japanese castles, though, most of them look neither like a palace nor like a fortress, more like (well, "like"? the style is totally different) a German Schloss built on the remains of a Burg. Lots of stones at the basis, but rarely with defensive installations (e.g. embrasures).
