Konnichiwa (Hello/Good day!)
Konnichiwa, come on in. Take a bow. Please leave your shoes. The tatami mats are new. They are thick mats woven of an sweet-smelling reed. Here, put on a yukata robe and get comfortable. Be sure to lap the robe left-over-right, unless you are dead: then lap the robe right-over-left.
BLOOD TYPES (Ketsu-eki-gata)
In Japan, blood type categories are used much like astrology; to initiate relationships: love and marriage matches, friendship and business couplings. Japanese companies routinely use blood type to target direct mail compaigns. Honda, Yamaha, Totoya, Fujitsu have adapted management and organizational structure to relect optimum blood type combinations. Market research firms test for preference of different blood types for food, clothing, entertainment. Blood type research is used for the selection of sports, news, drama variety programming on television. A search for "blood types" on a search engine will reveal web pages with the blood type listed as a personal attribute of the author.
We are our blood type throughout our entire body. Organs must be matched to blood type. A skin scraping or saliva test will reveal blood type. The theory behind blood typing is that there is a chemical basis to our personality.
