I get the 125 cc motorcycle license today.

I get the 125 cc motorcycle license today.

I went to a 2 person motorcycle license that I could ride together with my wife in order to avoid traffic congestion.

You can ride up to a 50cc motorcycle with a regular Japanese drivers license.
But it cant fit 2 people, and is only allowed to go up to 30 kmph.
You have to wear a helmet, of course.

So I spent 10 days studying in a classroom in order to get the next category up 125 cc motorcycle license.

It cost me about $700 USD, but I got my license today.

But it seems that I have to wait a year after getting my license before I can ride with another person...

"Seiko Boutique GINZA SIX" was smaller than I thought it would be.
"Citizen Flagship Store Tokyo" was spacious,
and had all of the Citizen group brands.
It was a pretty awesome shop.

I would have bought the "Bulova space watch quartz" if my wife hadn't been there with me!
Ginza Wako & Seiko Premium Boutique Ginza are right near Ginza six mall

This is a story about my father in law's RADO watch; he will turn 85.
His RADO watch stopped working 5-6 years ago. He had it ever since he was on active duty, and has never had another one.
 
When it stopped, he asked me this: "This watch is old, are there any new good watches?"

Well since you asked...

Casio's solar powered titanium wrist watch is nice.
It is accurate. It doesn't stop working. And it is very light. It costs about 100 dollars, so it makes for a nice present.
(This is almost same model)


He happily told me: " It is always on time, it's so light, it surprises me."

He has worn it ever since.


The beginning of this year,  he asked me: "Can this RADO be fixed?", so I took it in order to repair it.
2monthes later, it was finished to repair, and brought it to him.
He put it on and shook his wrist, glanced at the dial, and was very happy. It must have felt like being reunited with an old friend.
