ONLY in JAPAN comments

Posted in: Singapore lifts import restrictions on food from Fukushima Prefecture See in context

Fukushima is a large prefecture that goes into the mountains and beyond to the Aizu Wakamatsu area, hundreds of kilometers away, as far away from the disaster as Tokyo. It is awful they named the disaster in the west after the whole prefecture. It should have been the Dai-Ichi or TEPCO disaster / meltdown.

Wow! I didn’t think I’d see this article so soon. @gogogo the animation was created by D’ART SHTAJIO in Shinjuku. @doggar ONLY in JAPAN is the title of the show and deals with topics in Japan not just Japanese things. The phrase “Only in Japan” is negative and means this weirdness only happens here and I use YouTube as a platform to answer the why with history, culture and fun. So yeah, Japan has four seasons but Japanese celebrate it differently than the US. Japanese have fireworks but they add their culture to its presentation. Chopsticks? Fukui prefecture makes some of the best, the Wakasa region has amazing lacquerware and the chopsticks are excellent quality, almost like art. -John
