Something is definitely wrong with the translation. It looks intentional. Wont accuse uniqlo but that translation definitely trying to spark controversy.

How about using daily check in app, or senior safety app? Or even motion sensor will do.

Posted in: Japanese firms getting serious about food waste; households lag behind See in context

The root cause of food waste is fresh food. If everything is can it will last longer.

I worked in a restaurant. We throw everything we couldn't sell to customer at the end of day.

You dont see supermarket dumping cans of food at the end of day right.

25 books? Quite hard to believe.

Library is around every corner in the city.

Posted in: Should saying thanks at a Japanese convenience store go without saying? See in context

As customer, say thanks if you want but it is not required.

The culture in Japan is customers have higher standing , so as long customers not being an ass, it made store employees' job much easier already.

Generally they dont feel entitled to thanks or even tipping as they are just doing their job. And they thank you for shopping in their store or using their service.

For me I usually give head nod.

But again, some people say thanks to satisfy their own ego or out of habit. what is next? pushing small changes as tip? When in Japan do as the Japanese do. We dont really need to push unnecessary change to existing culture.
