The Japanese Office

I am a huge fan of the Office. It took me until this year to get into the US version, because I really loved the British version. My brother David and I watched the whole series one summer and just cracked up. ("Will there ever be a boy born who can swim faster than a shark?"--remember, Dave?) The U.S. version is actually alot better--way more wholesome. But, did you know there is a Japanese version? Check it out!

Haha, yeah. Those were good times! What was it... "If you were stranded in the wilderness, could you eat your own shoe?"

Hi guys,
I hope you will excuse a total stranger writing to you, but I just came across your page while looking for info about Marugame.
My son Rob (21), just moved there this week 5/26/08 (to teach English) and he is freaking out a little at the isolation and not knowing a single person, so he's feeling pretty overwhelmed. I wondered if you might have any suggestions or local info that might be helpful? So far, he does not have a cell phone and can only use a computer at an internet cafe. Any help at all would be really welcome. Thank you in anticipation, Fran

Hi, Fran. Is Rob teaching at Gem school? We know several Gem school teachers near Marugame. We'd love to help him out. If you give us his e-mail address, we can contact him and then delete the address from the comments section. It is very daunting to be here alone!
