North Korea cancelled meeting with Mike Pence

North Korea made a last minute cancellation to a meeting with U.S. Vice President Mike Pence at the Winter Games, Pence’s office said on Feb. 20.

Pence was scheduled to meet with Pyongyang officials, including Kim Jong Un’s sister, on Feb. 10, a day after the Winter Olympics Opening Ceremony.

But according to officials, North Korea cancelled 2 hours before the meeting was set to start.

In the days before, Pence had just condemned North Korean human rights abuses and announced plans for new sanctions.

After the cancelled meeting, U.S. officials issued a statement.

“This administration will stand in the way of Kim’s desire to whitewash their murderous regime with nice photo ops at the Olympics. Perhaps that’s why they walked away from a meeting or perhaps they were never sincere about sitting down,” Pence‘s chief of staff, Nick Ayers, said in a statement.

Signs of a thaw in relations between the two Koreas has sparked speculation of a lead-up to direct talks between Washington and Pyongyang, after months of tension and heated exchanges between President Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un.

North Korea has held off from carrying out any weapons tests since November, when it shot off its largest intercontinental ballistic missile yet.

Hot Tokyo Landmarks Appeared in well-known Films

Shibuya Crossing has become one of Tokyo’s landmarks, appearing often in films and music videos. Remember the scenes adrenaline-pumped racing scene through the heart of Tokyo in “The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift” and Scarlett Johansson moving through a busy Tokyo crowd in Sofia Coppola’s “Lost in Translation” as well as Taki and Mitsuha at a Shibuya Starbucks in Makoto Shinkai’s “Kimi no Na wa”.

They all had a scene filmed at the famous Shibuya Crossing. Shibuya Crossing is the busiest intersection in the world, with sometimes as many as 3,000 people crossing simultaneously. With huge crowds coming and going in all directions, scenes shot here are indeed very memorable.

As you drive out of Tokyo, you’ll see a very big park known as Koganei Park.
In the park is the Edo-Tokyo Open Air Architectural Museum where you’ll find restored buildings that were either destroyed in wars or by natural disasters. A walk in the park feels like being teleported back to Edo-era Japan.

The reason for us to visit this place is to see the “Kodakara-yu”, where the grandmaster of Japanese anime, Hayao Miyazaki got his inspiration for the bathhouse scenes in “Spirited Away”. It is said that Hayao Miyazaki came here to sketch the scenes he’d later use for his film, especially the bell-shaped roof of the entrance hall, it resembles a similar two-story building in the anime.

You could also see things like the yellow tramcar produced in 1962 here. If you take a leisurely walk among historic buildings, everything reminds you of scenes you've seen in films.

In Japanese films, scenes where young people pay visits to shrines or attend celebrations wearing traditional yukata are a must-have. Kimonos are almost impossible to put on by yourself, nevertheless, everybody in Japan puts on their kimonos to celebrate holidays.
