Posted in: Sacrifice, teamwork & optimism - Japan on road to recovery See in context

Recovery is a rather broad and multifaceted concept. I think few would argue that Japan's economic performance indicates that a recovery is complete. However there is also the recovery of the people, their spirits, hearts and minds. Indeed most Japanese people that I have met during my lifetime are hardworking, good natured and optimistic.

So yes, the title embeds an implicit hope of my own-the author's, plus the optimism and conscientiousness of those around me, coupled with a strong desire for some wise policies from the present government, so that the great nation can continue to recover.

Be it the people, the land, the economy or otherwise.

Posted in: Why do so many Japanese women take photos of their food at restaurants and post it on Facebook or their blogs? See in context

****I can appreciate if you are dining out at a nice restaurant, that you may not want to be bothered by the flashing of other peoples cameras. Fair enough I suppose. Most good cameras nowadays you don't need a flash anyway to get a good picture. If the person is not bothering anyone else why should I care if they take photos of their food? Each to their own.
