Video sites like YouTube and Vimeo offer great ways to research (or waste time). I recently stumbled upon this great clip of an amazing Japanese shopping mall fountain. Falling drops of water create words in Japanese Katakana, Kanji characters and incredibly even images of animals. The technology used is like a scaled up version of your home inkjet printer.

If you have seen something amazing in Japan you just couldn’t wait to tell people about, please email the Editor here. Your tip off could be featured in the Tokyo Weekender!

Now back to work.
