Nebuta Museum is definitely worth a visit if you go, can see the development of the floats and poke your head inside.

Posted in: Japan's 'womenomics' pioneer says mindsets must change See in context

I was always interested in this, as it must have been presented to Japan from US/Euro that 50% of your population isn't contributing it's potential to the GDP of Japan. If only. Of course nobody listened until after the bubble burst.

Posted in: Half a century of 'Jesus Christ Superstar' See in context

Never saw on stage, only saw the movie and listened to the album again and again. Probably my favourites.

Many Pacific islands have sunk over the ages and buying a tesla won't solve that problem.

Posted in: Mud, anger and police -- the battle over Canada's old-growth forests See in context

Japan has been the top buyer of these old growth trees in Canada for decades. Japanese all say they love wood but they seldom think about costs and damages inflicted away from Japan. Just like the Southeast Asian forests that have been ravaged by Japanese buyers, they move on to some other project when then resource has been depleted with little to any regret.

Heinz has failed me too many times, I'll give it a try.

Posted in: Transgender man in Japan wants switch recognized without surgery See in context

I agree with this person in that surgery should not be the determining factor. Surely there are transgender people not wanting to attach or detach bits and pieces of their bodies. They've probably gotten nervous hearing bad/botched results from others.

Posted in: Researcher sees lesson for today in tragedy of immigrants in Manchuria See in context

Good headline, this indeed is a lesson for all of us to consider. Back in the day Colonialism was a field of study - Japan as it turned out was a dollar short and a day late.

If water got into the wood chips they could have swelled and that may have been the result we see in the pictures.

When you nothing about the music business why not make a comment - sounds about right.

Such a gut-wrenching loss for Sweden and euphoria for Canada, after years and years of effort for these women. Thank you Tokyo and all of Japan for allowing these athletes to have these moments!

Adding natto to a cheap hot instant really is good and might even be healthy

The broadcasters deliberately avoid replaying the bad falls and with some not wearing helmets, who's protecting these kids?

Facebook was supposed to be a public platform, but it morphed into something else. Who will decide what facebook is?

Posted in: Do we need masks outdoors? Experts weigh in See in context

This article is about wearing masks OUTSIDE. Although only very limited data is provided it shows that outdoor transmission is very low. 99.9% is transmitted INDOORS. If there is more data I'd like to know about it.

Posted in: Apple announces $200 mil forestry fund to reduce carbon See in context

Potentially good news - but what does Apple know about Nature and Forestry? More than likely these projects will be tied to supply chain security.

Good post Desert Tortoise, General Average seems like an escape clause in this case though as there was never any danger to the cargo.

She isn't the first nor will she be the last to try to look good as she ages. Most people are similar in that feeling. She looks good IMO, but I say the same about Dolly Parton.

Posted in: Overseas Tokyo Olympic ticket holders may get only partial refunds See in context

Cosport is the problem in this story. They have the audacity to still try and make money off this and think Japan is responsible for their profit - unbelievable. They've probably spent all the money on themselves already.

Under extremely trying circumstances Japan is trying to make a go of this and as far as I can see the athletes around the world are getting ready and hoping for the best.
