I feel sorry for that old couple.

The truth is that winter is very hard to survive here in Japan. Houses are usually poorly insulated and mostly every single house is without central heater system. But I hope that Japanese people will realize that one day and they will change it or will come up with a new solution how to help people to improve their housing

This is happening every week in Japan. Fortunately those two ladies survived because it was an attack with ‘just a knife’. I’m so glad that people don’t have easy access to the guns here, otherwise it would be massive shouting every week and many people would died.

Well, that’s not in my case. Unfortunately I have to walk a lot every day.

It’s happening everywhere. Not only here in Japan. Good reason to start with my diet program.
