More good source material

Here's a link to more good English-language source material on things here in Japan, thanks to The Wall Street Journal's Asia operation: Japan Real Time.

It is a bit of politics, a bit of business, a bit of pop culture, all written in the hyperlinked 'blog format. Here's how they describe themselves:
Japan Real Time is a newsy, concise guide to what works, what doesn’t and why in the one-time poster child for Asian development, as it struggles to keep pace with faster-growing neighbors while competing with Europe for Michelin-rated restaurants. Drawing on the expertise of The Wall Street Journal and Dow Jones Newswires, the site provides an inside track on business, politics and lifestyle in Japan as it comes to terms with the inevitability of being overtaken by China as the world’s second-biggest economy.
Oh, and when they do decide to address a 'real news' story, they do a pretty good job of it.
