We’ve been having some really exciting lunch and dinner breaks at work this week. Adventures with tomoko~

Sorry if this is a bit of a loaded question but I'm having a bit of a dilemma and I don't know anyone in Japan I could ask something like this! I'm in quite desperate need of a rape crisis centre/foreign clinic but I just don't know where to start looking or even what kind of help is available for me, I know you've lived in Tokyo for a while and I just thought you might know someone who's been through the same thing, or just know how these things work... any advice would be so so helpful!

well… this is quite serious. I’m not sure why you would turn to a complete stranger on a photoblog, but if you’re really coming to me for help I will try to attempt to throw aside my pet peeve of people not just using google.com and related keywords for instant information and results for what you are looking for, and find some information for you.

from an article about rape in japan:

————
*Get immediate medical care and document everything. You will need as much evidence as possible, so it’s recommended that victims of assault in Japan go to the hospital before the police, as other victims have not been allowed to receive medical attention until after hours of questioning.

*Inform your embassy or consulate. They will often prove to be a great support. If possible, take an embassy officer or friend with you when going to the police to file a complaint.

*Seek guidance from people who have been there. Contact a support group like Warriors Japan (www.myspace.com/warriors_japan) or Lamplighters Japan (www.thelamplighters.org).

If you are a woman living in Japan and require help due to sexual assault, or if you have a loved one who was a victim, here are some helpful contacts:

Asia-Japan Women’s Research Center
To learn more about this gender equality advocacy group, see http://www.ajwrc.org(Japanese and English).

Tokyo English Life Line
Call 03-5774-0992 for English support daily 9 a.m.-11 p.m. Or seehttp://www.telljp.com for more information.

Tokyo Rape Crisis Center
Though English information is available on their website (www.tokyo-rcc.org), counseling services are currently in Japanese only, Wed 6-9 p.m. and Sat 3-6 p.m.

Warriors Japan
An organization founded  in May 2002, the aim of it is to create a 24-hour rape crisis center. The support group seeks volunteer advocates, translators and interpreters, as well as sponsors and donations. Email warriors.japan@gmail.com for more information.

please take care of yourself, I hope you are ok. you will be ok.
and please use google.com to search for shit.

I woke up with a text from a friend in Seattle ” uh… are you really on the cover of the stranger?” and I was like “uh… am I?” half asleep, I googled it on my tiny phone in Japanese. then I saw! “holy shit I am!”my wikipedia page of fame will note that my first cover was Seattle’s fiercest independent free weekly magazine. especially on CHBP weekend issue, everyone will be grabbing it. my face! I hope people will see it all over the newsstands and think “ah, I miss alex”. Sorry Seattle, I’m busy taking over Asia. such an awesome gift right before my birthday, though!This photo was taken right before I moved to Korea with the most fantastic and wonderful photographer Lauren Max. She’s the coolest.

I met this guy a few months ago and was instantly crushin. then he DJed and sang this song live. after that he pulled out some egyptian harem pants and we talked about anime. I crushed so hard but then someone stepped between us and I dropped the ball. he lives in kyoto. I like his mean eyebrows and sweet personality. I’ve been listening to this song on repeat all day all day all day.
