The Gomi baba’s in Adachi are a real thing. They will spot you and admonish you. Even accused me of not being on their list (wrong- wife’s Japanese name was there) Yes all these points advised by the article are advisable, but in reality you may not experience it. We did have new construction gifts dropped off once and one new neighbor dropped off a gift because she heard my daughter had gone to the same school. It’s kind of hit and miss. By all means carry in the tradition because it’d be a shame to loose it altogether.

This is very common practice around the world. Airlines have been doing it for a long time it is cheaper to travel midweek than on weekends. If you want to travel please make plans appropriately.
have you not read the comments. This directly affects Japanese who have very limited times to take time off and they will bear the brunt of this policy. And it will not relieve the crowds. Just hitting the average “Jun/Junko” in the nuts after being slapped with crazy prices of gas, food etc. Sounds like some with connections to railway companies got greased to pass this. lobbyists ….??

Global temperatures and ignoring science… hmmm let’s see science is totally influenced by money. If my science says, “look I found evidence that shows this” and it goes against the narrative. Guess what happens? My school or institution no longer gets funding to do research. Unfortunately, Believe the science has been corrupted. Yet our food poisons millions with diseases and pharmas can release medications and kill 60,000 people(only one example) and make billions and get a slap on the wrist( fined) after they were held responsible and finally pulled the medication. No kids at university are protesting this? Why not?? Many questions to dive into if you like to find truths but the propaganda machine will never pursue.

No questions on how they will stop the endless spending….??? How about some rules on interrupting.. Its a clown show. Obviously Rama is the most intelligent but we (I) got fooled by Obama so beware. The Republican Party is fake. They pretend to care about abortion, they don’t care about government spending or the deficit, they just pretend to. At this point it’s who has the best swag and convince people because they are entertaining. So sad. All of them are responsible for inflation. The swamp runs deep on both sides. If you’re not skeptical in this environment you’re not too bright. At this point, the Left seems more artificial and the Right is seems more organic. If I have to choose I’ll take organic, but no guarantees. The problem is the Dems control media and most will believe anything they crank out, especially the indoctrinated youngsters. That’s why these days independent media is growing and mainstream is flailing. Spending needs to get under control, unless that’s the plan to just screw everything up and then usher in the great reset.

This guy has no credibility whatsoever on the world stage to anyone who can think critically. Biden is so corrupt with mountains of obvious evidence against him and others and they still claim “there is no evidence” LOL!!! All these elites and media companies are in bed with globalization, flooding countries with illegal immigrants, pushing socialist ideas, breaking down societies, indoctrinating the youngsters that they are victims, etc., so they can usher in their great reset. Slowly and in increments so people won’t push back. It’s happening and whether you choose to believe or not, it’s real. Why do they attack anyone who starts to get a large following and try to cancel anyone who shed light on truths? You get rewarded for lying and attacked for telling truths. Crazy time we live in.

there are still so many in denial and a press in America who are in bed with big pharmas. Japan’s pharmaceutical SHIONOGI is now working on a vaccine and will do clinical trials for 2-3 years. So you can’t say the U.S.’s vaccine wasn’t rushed and proper trials were not done and and in some case not done at all. Huge amounts of money have polluted this whole situation. All researchers, politicians media types should have to wear jackets with sponsors labels (like NASCAR cars have advertised all over their vehicles) These days all the major media networks get 65%-70 of their ad revenue from Pharmas. So, of course they wont do real reporting or hit pieces against them because they would cease to exist especially with their sinking ratings and people not using usual cable methods to get their news. There are vaccine injuries that the press simply won’t report on. the fact that you couldn’t question anything about the jabs, couldn’t talk to world renowned doctors who buck the narrative, you couldn’t share their info, etc because there was a full on press to stop them in any way. People lost their jobs, friends, connection to family and friends etc. because of this. So of course Virusx will refute anything negative said on vaccines and but can’t deny their were forces that used strong arm tactics, lies, etc. to push their jabbies and the pharmas have no worries because of the Prep Act. and have got politicians in their pockets.

Presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has a pretty good theory and it’s gaining traction.
of course, they are many factors that may be contributing the increase, but there are still so many in denial and a press in America who are in bed with big pharmas.

Disclosure I do not support Putin in any manner. Killing innocent people, kids women etc. is evil and unacceptable. But so was invading Iraq under totally false pretenses among other countries we’ve done the same. Do more research on encroaching NATO countries, how Russia has warned against expansion, how we manipulated Ukraine and their elections, etc. This means basically not using CNN, ABC, CBS, CNBC, and other mainstream media as your sources of research. Until you can see both sides objectively then there is no need to comment back. What is sad these days is no is responsible for lying, but you get attacked for trying to tell the truth or getting close to some truth. Strange times we live in, indeed

don't think I would characterise Putin as a globalist elite.
No, I don’t. But what are the reasons that Putin acted in such a manner and how was America in involved in pushing him over the edge? You might make a comparison such as, China or Russia put bases in Mexico, Canada and and Cuba and we’re warned several times not to. But they go ahead and do it anyway. Then one of these countries persuades California to let them put in bases there and puts in a new governor by money and influence and starts pushing the other countries agenda. Do you think the US. wouldn’t respond in the same manner? Mainstream news will never tell you or ask these question because they are part of the propaganda machine. Too much to go into on this platform, moderators, and eventually “can no longer comment.”

Ever wonder why blackrock has a plan to rebuild Ukraine? The military industrial machine has no reason to want to stop the flow of money to corrupt Ukraine. It doesn’t matter what country you are from. What matters is, do you align yourself with this globalists agenda and the elites? Do you want to be totally controlled by digital money, digital passports, ban meat, etc. Do you want the UN, WWO, WEC to have powers to govern individual countries decisions. These are being pushed heavily and backed by Blackrock, Vangaurd, Statestreet and they have vast almost unlimited amounts of cash and power to control our lives and other companies with DEI scores and the like. You peeps better wise up to what the heck is going on. Don’t give me this is not on topic. It certainly is so please don’t ……

“There are so many countries that women AREN’T afforded …….“
-6 ( +0 / -6 )
Japan was a quality respectful team. Sad to see them ousted. Unlike the most of the U.S. women’s team who were and have been disrespectful, unappreciative for the opportunities that living in the US has given them. They could easily could have stood on a platform of “ look how great America is and we’ve been given this great opportunity to reach this potential because America is so tolerant and gives equal rights to women straight or other. There are so many countries that women are afforded such luxuries and we must unite to help them reach their potential” there are some countries you can be jailed, murdered for being gay, etc. But NO they chose the easy route of yelling racist, misogyny, etc. Thus started the people saying, hey just play the game and let us support your effort like we did in the past. NOPE they doubled down and therefore lost half of the base fans. They also complained/lied about money wages that aren’t fair. Well, news for you is you don’t bring in the same amount of revenue. Just like the WNBA they would have been defunct years ago if not for the NBA giving them money to exist. They have constantly operated in the red since inception. Us sports fans just want to escape in our team’s performance and leave politics behind. So as long as the players want to hurl their opinions and politics at us, when we want to escape real life for a few hours and enjoy, they will have to endure not being loved by all as it used to be in yesteryears

Yep, attempted to bike around to get some photos, but couldn’t get anywhere good at 7:30. Need to stake out you space well in advance. Got some good shots of Adachi fireworks but did layout our sheet in the morning to save our spot on the riverside.
are you still wearing a mask while walking alone on the street. Life is too short unless you have medical issues, overweight or advanced age you should not be controlled by an over reaching governments and corrupt pharmas.

NEVER in my entire career as a fed public defender was I granted pre trial diversion for a fed felony gun charge related to narcotics- NEVER. I represented hundreds of minorities on this exact same charge, and the average sentence was 3-5 years in federal prison. Enter the white son of a white president prosecuted by a white AG and their two tier system of justice. im not saying its about race, but where's the outcry from the left n all the minorities who got launched by DOJS prison sentences

Cause that John Durham might just have some questions of his own to answer tomorrow.
I can admit yes he some answering to do and didn’t really go after the people calling the shots. but most here can never admit that their side might be wrong. Like the die hard Trump fans that won’t see/admit that he took big money from pharmaceuticals and then changed his mind on appointments to NIH and CDC (or FDA forget which one)

John Durham speaks tomorrow so gotta deflect attention. such a slap on the wrist this conviction wreaks of dirty corrupted politics. Groom your kids or prepare them for the world. Which one does Hunter fall under. It seems that Hunter was helped to prepare for the world by watching the big guy. Question how many times has Joe said on live TV, “ I’d better not say that or I’ll get in trouble” obviously he’s not in control and DOJ has been corrupted. This double standard of justice is crazy. Little Wayne, Wesley Snipes, Martha Stewart all went to prison for the same charges. So don’t try to counter the argument. It’s plainly not a level playing field.

of Course, “see we have justice”. Biden’s son. Guilty look look here. Don’t look over there that’s nothing. No matter what kind of blinders you have on, if you can’t see the weighted level of justice that favors the left and see the faults on both sides, then this country is doomed. They want the division to continue because you won’t search out the truth as you’re busy with being tribal.

They charge tourists extra fees in Hawaii and use for improving Hawaii and for wasteful politicians to get their hands on more money. They have something there called the ‘local rate or discount” show your ID get discounts on hotels, rent a cars, etc. Not buses though…

Trump is a polarizing figure. Funny how everyone loved him until he ran and won. Then the full power of the proganda machine went to work. Suddenly he’s the whipping boy. it’s obvious to me and I was a staunch Obama supporter. Justice is not served when it’s political.

During the initial COVID and Apple was lining people up outside. On 2 different occasions I saw some Chinese speaking man passing out multiple Apple gift cards to various Chinese speaking customers in the line. He was talking to all of them and obviously orchestrating a mass buy of iPhones. I saw several of them walking out with purchases of multiple phones. It was very sketchy looking as he would not talk to them close to the entrance. I wonder these were tax free or not…

Country can be falling apart, no happy life or nice plans for you and your family, but they'll grin with their only tooth left: "still better than Trump"
spot on. The U.S. is in major decline. But all is good Joe is at the helm. Wink wink.. Yes will support him no matter what. Biden just made a new commercial to run again and it’s full of lies that the legacy media won’t fact check. Must be nice the run on cruise control knowing you’ll never really be challenged. The sad thing is the left has no clue that all that power will be used against them one day. Then they’ll say, “ how did this happen?” Sheepish peeps that believe all the media feeds them. No critical thinking and doing you’re own research to see we are all being played against each other while they bring us closer and closer to a Marxist socialist controlled earth.

The dude gets worse and worse and now he won’t join the primary debates. They are already rigging the system by tossing softball questions to candidates they support. Now they are so arrogant and disrespectful to the American people and voters. We’re not going to allow any debate or put his record( of failures) in front of the American people or give the people any choice but Biden. Do you really want to vote for the man and his administration that have so much disdain and disrespect for the people?
