Posted in: In landmark ruling, Japanese court says same-sex marriage ban 'unconstitutional' See in context

This is so exciting.

I have been with my Japanese partner for three years, we dream of the day we can marry and even contemplate doing so in America.

My partners brother got married to a woman within 6 months of meeting, receives support from both families, living a good life. My partner remains closeted to close family and I have only met the family once in 3 years of our relationship.

Posted in: Woman dies from brain hemorrhage days after receiving coronavirus vaccine, but link uncertain See in context

My father developed optic neuritis after the second dose of the Phizer shot. Has been on steroids, recovering. Docs said it is likely due to an undiagnosed condition, maybe MS. People need to be aware they could have undiagnosed condition and suffer consequences if the vaccine exasperates it.

My relative in the states is in the medical field. They got the vaccine back in January. They were fine after the first dose. After the second dose they developed nerve damage. Docs are saying that might have been due to an undiagnosed condition . Don’t know yet. Some people are having weird reactions like my relative.

At this point all of the travel campaigns, manipulation of numbers that making people feel safer to go out, starting to feel like a scheme for the government to achieve herd immunity quicker. Listen to your intuition people. Tokyo is now a viral soup, best watch out for yourself

Posted in: Tokyo reports 736 new coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 2,983 See in context


I read the same study. Also, BCG vaccine started being administered in Japan from the year 1951. (Ken Shimura was born in 1950, one year before...) Meaning people over age 70 here (and non-vaccinated foreigners)should be at high risk if the study about BCG being effective against corona is true.I was surprised to hear Ireland still requires BCG whereas UK doesn’t, compared the death rates of both countries and looks like promising data.

Posted in: This delicious pudding made solely with persimmons and milk is trending in Japan See in context

I’ve heard persimmons mixed with milk create white precipitate that form stones in the body. Don’t know the scientific basis but probably safer to substitute with a non-dairy milk.

Hope for their happiness. Recently taught 20 Vietnamese at one of those two year training colleges. Majority of them wanted to go back home and said their life was better back home, was eye-opening and sad.
