No more stupid omiyage. Fruit wrapped in plastic should be punishable by death. Job done. 90% reduction of plastic waste

"Fishing for dolphins is their livelihood"
Boo hoo. Tough tomatoes. They will have to change to live in the modern world. We don't have slave owners anymore, and we don't sacrifice our livestock to the sky god. We don't need dolphin fishermen either. The 'culture' argument is ridiculous. Should we be allowed to have sex with children too, because that was the common thing a few hundred years ago... ? NO. Get with the times. If you can't adapt to another job, that's just too bad.

The real crime is that all convenience stores arent doing this. The amount of perfectly good food wasted at conbinis is disgusting. I went into my local conbini at around 11pm before closing (believe it or not), as they were scanning hundreds of items to throw away I asked them whether they could give me some of the food to distribute to the local homeless community, or better not why not do it themselves a a charitable act to the local community. I got a very cool reception. waste of food, waste of plastic. eurgh. Not a problem limited to Japan, but definitely a very bad example here

High sugar intake is one of the leading causes of dementia. 3 mammoth bowls of sticky white rice a day might be a staple of the Japanese diet, but it ain't doing those brains any favours. Cut the carbs people

It would be a good idea to do a background check on Japan's nuclear regulators first. Not the best track record
