Posted in: Tokyo area governors warn against holiday travel amid virus surge See in context

For many, staying home isn’t an option. Fact being that their dwellings aren’t that homely. They’re void of character, space and comfort. Most are a cramped box with a futon and a microwave. Uncomfortable living spaces and an over abundance of cafes, bars, and izakaiya go hand in hand. On average people go to the supermarket 3 times a week due to not enough freezer/ cupboard space and also diet. Then there are those who never cook and rely solely on dining establishments. For many , wandering about shopping malls is their freedom from the cage.

A doctor/ friend informed me that the Indian variant has reached Tokyo.

The variant carries two mutations and cannot be protected against by any vaccine to date.

Posted in: Make waves this summer with this ‘Mermaid Swim’ diving package in Amami Oshima See in context

How typical. My daughter had a mermaid fin about 5 yrs ago . She didn’t need tuition. About 10 yrs ago I was telling a J friend I used to skateboard. He asked if I went to a special school for that. There’s an obsession with instruction. I guess it stems back from school.

Asking about the colour of someone’s skin is not racist. To claim racism illustrates an insecurity towards ones own race or conveniently using the race card as a weapon.

Pedophiles should be arrested, charged , detained, sentenced, incarcerated and placed on a sex register.

Not transferred to a new school.

Japan needs to stop protecting these animals. Restricting SMS is only treating the symptom, but also ignoring the cause.

Posted in: Valentino sparks outrage with apology for disrespecting Japanese culture in photo shoot See in context

The problem isn’t whether the fabric is an obi or not, it’s the fact that someone is trampling on something that looks like an obi–like a foreign country trampling on Japanese culture.

Posted in: Nurseries, kindergartens mull how to teach issues of gender identity See in context

Not so long ago we laughed at the sight of ordinary men dressed up as women. Comedy sketches, pantomimes and fancy dress parties.

Not out of spite, but because it was funny , ridiculous, peculiar and strange. Like the bearded lady at travelling side shows it draws attention,

Bullying is a different story and to state it doesn’t exist because there’s no law pending is what makes Japan so unique.

What difference does dining with four people compared to nine when you’re filling stadiums and concert halls with up to 5,000 people.

It’s all very well putting quasi lockdowns on cities with high numbers, but from sheer boredom, fear and stupidity those citizens travel at weekends to areas with low numbers and bingo .
