Your posting really stiatghrened me out. Thanks!
I have lived in Japan half of my middle aged life now (!) and when I first came in the late 70′s I was working under fluorescent lights and living under them in my small apartment. When I went back to California after a year and a half a chiropractor diagnosed me as having depleted adrenals. One contributing factor was fluorescent lighting – which I had never encountered until then. Luckily Japanese light fixtures are quite easy to change out and I was able to change the ceiling light in my apartment to conventional bulbs. Unfortunately I never see this issue talked about in the American press as they get ready to move away from conventional bulbs !I personally believe that one reason Japanese use fluorescent lighting is that it is much cooler! Japan has extremely hot, humid summers and it is amazing how much heat our ceiling lights give off when you sit below them – and as Japanese ceilings tend to be lower you are closer to the light fixtures. Now many, if not most, people have air conditioning but when I first came, few people did. I try to use it as little as possible. Myself and my Japanese husband often turn off the light after dinner as it’s just too hot for him. Unfortunately I don’t notice an appreciable opposite effect in the winter

We ( the cockatiel – kissy & me ) totally like the idea of a shalom-salaam tree – sort of reminds us of our jewish friend who introduced us to our muslim friend who keeps trying to convert kissy the bird to islam – to which i always reply no-no the cockatiel is a catholic blessed by our roman catholic priest ! All in good fun – no war – no hate – no intolerance since we all share the same GOD !

I love working with film and would be thrilled to work with you on a project like this. I’ve been dreaming of the same type of film making dealing with Okinawan and Uchinanchu issues and community here in the United States and abroad. My You tube page is filled with Okinawa related materials but much of them are either Kenjinkai performances or mined from the internet. Hopefully we can get together on skype and discuss the logistics of working on a project that covers the uchinanchu population in the United States. The film would be awesome if several different perspectives were involved in its creation.

Aloha= Haisai Jeremy,Nifeedeebiru, I would not have understood a word when I accidentally navigated to the site if you had not set that up. Although I have two sanshin right now I like to look around. By the way, are the sanshins on that site made in Okinawa or are they made in Vietnam? Oh well, not too important and I digress. I was actually trying to find the Okinawan word for the purple sweet potatoes when I found your site. Could you help me out on this one if possible? Yes I know, it has nothing to do with sanshin, but it is difficult to find good answers in English and I can’t read Japanese or Okinawan. Well, there you go, I just started rambling again, sorry. If you can help me please drop me a note at the email address I provided. Mahalo,Rodney Oshiro

Great comomn sense here. Wish I'd thought of that.
