Posted in: Disaster-hit residents unimpressed by 'recovery Olympics': gov't report See in context

The main report focused on positives: how Fukushima-produced hydrogen was used in the torch relay, and how the athletes village served food from the disaster-hit region.


Surely, not the highlights?

What a monumental waste….

Those towns are set to wither and fade away as it is only the old people that are returning.

Radioactive areas are no place for children!

Posted in: Britain to lift import restriction on food products from Fukushima See in context

Is there a point in sending Japanese mushrooms halfway round the world and what is the value of sending items from a region where there has been a breach of nuclear containment and where there is ongoing radioactive discharge into the environment?

Kishida is obviously trying to score votes from the country folk and Boris is hoping Japan will buy British military equipment!

Tokyo will get hotter and hotter as the vast swathes of concrete absorb the heat-if you don’t need to be there then now is the time to move out...

There have been multiple cases of children who wore masks during gym classes being sent to hospital due to heat exhaustion or heatstroke.


When people start dying from heatstroke more than the virus then the penny might eventually drop.

Yep, the western leaders are rubbing their hands with glee thinking how much they can benefit from the continuing carnage.

The ‘support’ is never free but a chance to make money.

And nowhere in the article is there a word from Kishida.But he will have time to think about it on the way back to Japan how to involve Japan Inc in the rebuilding-he must be very excited…

Nor is Taiwan a place where freedoms are trampled on and people disappear to be imprisoned far from their homes or worse!

I see kids on a bicycle and I slow right down-why not?

The constant desire to be on time in Japan does not bode well on the streets where there are vulnerable people.

The cops need to to do more in Japan than hang around stop signs and begin to enforce other road laws!

The advisory could be upgraded to a stricter warning if temperatures rise further, leading to tighter supply and demand conditions.…..

And then what?

A sudden blackout?

I don’t trust power companies in Japan so I’m upgrading my solar battery storage a notch or two

Starting with the matcha-flavored beverage, Masami found it hard to look away from the beautiful swirls of creamy green created by the matcha liquid, which is poured over the icy milk just before it’s served.

Surely, Masami needs to find a good book?

Today, the temperature, well before 10 am in this morning is 33°C in Tokyo-no one is going to endurethe heat and humidity so just expect blackouts in Tokyo this summer….

Turn off the aircon in the Gikai; there’ll be a massive power saving although the hot air continually expended will lift the building off the foundations!

Had the infection in Japan which was a conscious decision (couldn’t be bothered anymore)and been out many times since sans mask; clubs, bars ,restaurants etc and no repeat infection.

Omicron is fading away and whatever is the variant won’t have a specific vaccine although we will still be told otherwise.

It is a gravy train that leaves a deep stain that we won’t be allowed to clean up anytime soon

Posted in: Households becoming less tolerant of surging food prices: study See in context

I’ve got beans and peppers coming up that I grew from seed.

Got partial solar power and ride a bicycle.

Cut price food is to be had for the patient and hard up; time your supermarket trips wisely.

Also, I make a massive daal curry every week that is cheap and I never tire of eating.

There are ways around this but by not adopting certain habits now, will mean confusion later.

> UK college graduates in 2021 had an unemployment rate of about 12%; not too far off from China's 18.4% this year. Anyone make a big deal about that?

It’s a major difference!

And very far off!

Give me a return of 6.4% on my investment and I’ll put up hundreds of thousands of US dollars

Kishida is massively adding to climate change every time he leaves Japan.

When was the last time he walked or cycled somewhere?

He has absolutely no authority to lecture anyone!
