Meet Umihiko Namekawa, TechCrunch Translator

Had a great evening with Umihiko Namekawa (front and center), a translator who writes TechCrunch Japan and Serkan (sitting to my right), a grad student living in Japan who is working on a Web 2.0 project and reads and seems to enjoy CrunchGear and TC. We went to Jetee, a place in Tokyo’s former red light district. The place was about as big as a modern American bathroom but it’s definitely recommended for its odd amalgam of French music and weird decor. Good times. I’m still here in Tokyo until Saturday, so drop me a line at if you want to rock and roll all night and party every day.
