  1. History and Culture is inseparably linked and what is not to be forgotten. August 6th day of remembrance and mourning those who died in Hiroshima. The terrible truth must not be forgotten ever!

  2. Is it possible to include NyNyOnline which focuses on Japanese culture, language and music? :) http://nynyonlinex.wordpress.com Maybe it should go into the green belt area?

  3. wonderful put up, very informative. I’m wondering why the opposite experts of this sector don’t realize this.
    You should proceed your writing. I am confident, you’ve a great readers’ base already!
