Posted in: Japan to build anti-tourist fence at another Mount Fuji viewpoint See in context


Tourists pay for these packages (includes both fenced places) and want to make the most of the money spent.

I have seen dozens of busses pull up, Regulate tour operators ? then the public transport will be overwhelmed.

Posted in: Japan’s newest vending machine absorbs CO2 from the environment See in context

Appreciate the effort, first steps have to be encouraged but I see a lot of negativity in the comments section.

I agree the technology is not where it needs to be but refinements can be made only if basic ideas are kick started.


Read the "Direct Air Capture" section.

Posted in: Former KAT-TUN member arrested for stimulants possession admits they were his See in context


He could have said they could have been left by someone else who previously stayed in the same hotel room before him. Where's the proof?

Not possible, the cleaner already proved his/her worth by finding 0.164g of the substance (sarcasm), must be a pro in the profession

I was having a dream about flying to China with my magic watch while a tall Chinese lady drove me to the store where she ate fish off the floor when the earthquake woke me up. Scary stuff.

Dream ? nightmare !!!

The news is quite disturbing, no updates from experts so far.

Posted in: Whenever you read about random knife attacks in public places or on trains, does it make you more attentive to what people around you are doing when you are walking along the street, waiting on train platforms, aboard trains or shopping? See in context

Always aware, but things happen when I least expect or when my mind is on something else more pressing. Situations like the recent news renews the necessity to be more attentive in public.

Most countries don't even report this kind news and more often don't even apologize, wonder why Japan reports over the news. Find the pieces and apologize or compensate locally.

Meanwhile, Nishimura voiced concerns over COVID-19 spreading among foreign residents of Japan, saying they may be less inclined to wear face masks or visit hospitals when feeling ill.

Unbelievable how someone in the government can say something like this without facing consequences.

Posted in: Japan to approve Remdesivir for coronavirus patients in May See in context


Have you ever contracted influenza Type A or B ? the doctors go through all allergies and dose based on age and body health condition for side effects. You can also opt out of medication, When I went after 3 days of fever they did not bother to give me influenza medication. Trust in the experts and see the positive side.

Posted in: Osaka police officer arrested for keeping ¥10,000 note turned in by 2 brothers See in context

In most countries, the boys don't report and give the money to cops, even if they do the money disappears, The mother never bothers to check with the police station .... Other than the cop pocketing the money there are so many positives that make me feel good about Japan.
