  1. Hey guys, back to this forum again and feels great.........! I am planning for a week's holiday to Tokyo in April. I require a tourist visa to enter Japan and am prepared to get one. How easy or difficult would it be to acquire a Tourist visa for a family of 3 to Japan for a Australian permanent resident? Has anyone been in my shoes before? How much cash would they need to see in the bank? Do they accept credit card (funds available) balance? Do they generally interview you or is it just the docs they need to see? I tried calling the consulate's office in Sydney and the person i spoke to wasn't that helpful. Can anyone shed some light on this?
  2. I've just applied for my PR (!) from Australia and I clicked on the icon to check where to get my Health Check done, and the nearest centre is in Japan - is this for real? When I look on the immigration website, the only countries available where you can get a health check are outside Australia. Am I missing something here? Or do I need to start packing my kimono and looking forward to authentic sushi?
  3. Why can't these two companies grow up and start working together. A few weeks ago Apple won an order to stop Samsung with their galaxy and now Samsung are coming back at Apple:wub::no: Maybe we should look at legal action between Mc Donalds and Hungry Jacks, because they both sell burgers:wideeyed: SOUTH Korea's Samsung Electronics says it is trying to block the sale of Apple's newest iPhone in Japan and Australia, escalating its legal battle with the US giant after several setbacks. Samsung said in a statement on Monday it had filed for preliminary injunctions in courts in Tokyo and NSW, seeking a ban on sales of the iPhone 4S on the grounds it infringes Samsung's technology patents. It said it is also seeking a sales ban on the iPhone 4 and iPad2 in Japan. "Apple has continued to violate our patent rights and free-ride on our technology. We will no longer stand idly by and will steadfastly protect our intellectual property," the company said.

    Looting in Japan

    Why hasn't there been any??? Every time there is a disaster in any country you always hear reports of the locals going on looting sprees and grabbing anything that isn't bolted down. I might be biased as I have a Japanese wife but I think there's a lot we can learn from the Japanese about respect and discipline.
