I Love what I do and do not intend to retire even past 70 why? I pursued my passion in Life after realizing I could not deal with working at a company, its not for everybody. My advice is find your passion and pursue it. You might not make as much money as you did especially when your working for yourself especially when you start. When you do what you Love its easy to work hard and it pays off not in money but in happiness.

One who will sacrifice economic growth now in the short term to handle the massive problems this country faces for long term growth and stability. Sacrifice now so generations from now do not have to deal with greater problems and suffering created by out of control growth which would create a loss and misery for the future.

Posted in: Employees will be allowed to smoke during lunch and other breaks. But they will be asked to take some time before getting back to work after smoking as the risk of causing passive smoking is believed to linger for about 45 minutes after smoking. See in context
I have always found the smell of Tabaco, people who smoke, or the smoke it self so vile I get sick to my stomach even with the slightest sense of it. Even when driving and stopping at a traffic light I smell it from a car near me I start to get sick.
PLEASE BAN SMOKING ABSOLUTELY ITS VILE especially for people who are very sensitive to it and want nothing to do with it.

I live in Northern Ishikawa and lived here for years. I Love it here and would not want to live anywhere else in Japan. I also Love traveling both by car or motor bike to Shiga, Nagoya, Kyoto, Osaka, and Nagano.
The worst effect of the pandemic even for myself has been catching myself cringing when I see a plates from Kanto especially Tokyo, or Osaka, Nagoya. Well I have long since stopped but it just shows one of the worst aspects of this pandemic and how it can effect anybody.

Kishida pledges huge COVID relief package if he wins LDP leadership vote.
These Schweinehunds cut the pay of Doctors and nurses who were combatting this disease in the first place, a great insult to people who are fighting the disease on a daily basis.
These Schwinehunds should have offered assistance by all means possible to doctors, nurses, and who every are fighting this disease in hospitals, assistance the public sufferings from the disease, assistance to all small business and small restaurants, and assistance to all who are combating this disease.
Instead, What did they do? OLYMPICSやろ！！Then they delay the election and cite taking care of the Corona Virus, Just shows you where these Schwinehunds priorities are. None of these Schwinehunds should be given a second more in their current positions.
The people of Japan should not forget this, but sadly the circle of incompetency and stagnation will likely continue decade after decade.

I have tranquility and look at the forest around my house and listen to the waves and sea breeze everynight because I do not live in the city. I prefer a quieter way a life and do not need the stress and annoyance of a city.

The real problem this country faces. Japan must prepare for this decline to continue both economically and strategically but looking at how it takes care of the current state of affairs such as the Pandemic and Corona Vaccine, this is very unlikely they will do nothing about it.
For most countries a declining population would be welcomed, I myself do however Japan is strategically to important for such a decline, countries like China, South and North Korea, Russia and the American hoards who are already here. You never know what dangers will come out of current American political climate over the next 50 years, which is why I included America since I trust the Americans as much as I trust the Russians. Currently the most worry some would be China and China will take full advantage of this situation if it is not planning for it already.

If any truely lethal mutations, lets say on par with diseases like smallpox or worse, come out of the pandemic are yet to be seen. In my opinion, Corona and its varients are a serious matter not as serious yet as smallpox was and a good practice in how prepared some counties are in dealing with diseases.
They also show how far countries will go to protect their citizens and take away basic freedoms in the name of emergency which could also could lead to a lethal mix of over reaching power and authority that could also be abused.

Of course there is a link, the link is this government not listening to its people who were against having this Olympics in a global pandemic.
Let the people of Japan close their ears to the new state of emergency and a deaf the government that would care less about its peoples conerns and more about their ecomomics and their pride.

The Olympics can be held but not the local Matsuri in the town I live or surrounding towns. The orginal meaning for the Kiriko Matsuri in many towns in Ishikaw were originally held because of a disease that effected much of the area hundreds of years ago. These local Matsuri have been held almost every year since. Because of the original reason why these Matsuri were created to pray for a cure and relief of a Diease, they cannot be held again this year and the Olympics can

For anyone who does not know, Kometo is influenced by the religious group 創価学会, Sokagakkai, which has far reaching connections to nations top elite especially the Tokyo elite. Though I am not from Tokyo, this information comes from a conversation I had with my wife long ago, her family is affiliated with 浄土真宗Jodo Shinshu.

I enjoy the beautiful view of Toyama Bay from my home, where you can see Tateyama and the Northern Alps on beautiful day. Seeing the beautiful stars at night enjoying the sounds of waves while you sleep. The wonder and the beauty which is greatest gift this world has to offer humanity and I enjoy it on a daily basis.

Yohan Today at 12pm,
Thanks Yohan. The town has to distribute mail to every resident local or foreign, to make an appointment to reserve a spot for the vaccination. People who recieve this letter need to make an appointment at yakuba to recieve the vaccination. The letters needed to be written in English and sent by mail. So that Help. Thank you.

My wife who is Japanese works for the yakuba in the town where we live. She works with hoken sodan and has dealt with the distribution of the vaccine. The time spent in the planning, the usless meetings, the zoom meetings with perfecture, zoom meetings with Tokyo, how to even start to distribute the vaccine, how to correctly write letters to locaal elderly residenccs to see what day they want to schedule an appointment for the vaccine, than another letter to actually schedule the date of the vaccine, which finally started two days ago for 120 elderly 'residence. I had to help my wife with the translation for the foreigners because no one in the local govt can understand or use English or German properly for the few foreign residents we have in our town. The problem is pure and simple, the Japanese government on every level is to complex and the amount of bureaucracy is amazingly astonishing with too few workers and needs an absolute reform.
