What is with TP? are people worried they wont be able to wipe their butts? Would think water and food would be priority, but no - toilet paper...

Why would water be a priority? Tap water will still be accessible even if you can't leave your home in a pandemic. The same can't be said for TP.

Serows aren't rare at all, I see them all the time when riding my bike in the countryside. Yamanashi, Nagano, Shizuoka, etc.

She has the same name as the guy in the Kung Fu TV show. Maybe she shares his Buddhist ideals and that's why she's lived so long.

Red light cameras would soon fix this problem.>

No, red light cameras increase accidents because they cause people to suddenly slam on their brakes and get rear-ended.

The first step would be to make suicide illegal, like it is in the US. Most Japanese are law-abiding so this could save lives.

Maxplank, basically you've got zero rights in your household, including being your daughter's legal guardian. I would say you've been suckered...

Posted in: Documentary looks at why Japanese parents let young kids walk to school by themselves See in context

Growing up in '70s America, it was common for kids to walk to school or to the distant bus stop alone from a young age, not to mention spending weekends roaming around their neighborhoods as they pleased. Studies show that the crime rate was the same back then as now, the difference is everything is so much more sensationalized in the Internet age people think crime against kids is much more rampant. What a shame...

Posted in: Smoke haters go after smokers with a vengeance See in context

Carry a cigar with you to restaurants. If smokers near you ignore your request that they not light up, wait till they start eating, then pull out the cigar and send some smoke clouds their way. Then they'll get the message. :)

Posted in: Hulu Japan offers not just movies, but a little education and awesome customer service too See in context

Hulu Japan is great for households who need the Japanese subtitles and dubbing. But if you only want US movie and television content in English you're better off getting a VPN and subscribing to Netflix.

Posted in: Japan faces crematorium shortage See in context

beavis at 11:49 AM JST - Crematoriums must cost a lot of money to operate and probably contribute to a poor air quality. There are options other than cremation. Recycling as a food source for farm animals for instance.
