And the revolving door swings again.

I would say give a much younger person the chance but this will never happen. Japan continues to be ruled by men who are mentally stuck in the showa era

Posted in: Mother develops underwear to help girls' transition to puberty See in context

„tuck her napkins away so that they aren't noticeable" 

Because japan is filled with people who have x-ray eyes. I have never heard about sanitary pads being visible through clothes

With this mindset it’s no wonder girls are still ashamed of their menstruation. This taboo needs to go.

If I had to chose I would rather use sanitary pads instead of wearing a blood soaked panty the whole day. If the pad is full you remove it and use a new one.

What are you doing if you have school + club activities til 5 or 6 pm and you are not able to change your underwear until you get home. Doesn’t sound so comfortable if you ask me.

And where do you put the used one ? I don’t think many girls are enthusiastic about the idea carrying used underwear in their school bag . Even if you put it in a zip log bag.

I can imagine the panties start smelling quickly during the hot and humid Japanese summer.

Posted in: 15 rude things not to do on trains in Japan See in context


Haha I can confirm this

In Osaka I saw a drunk guy falling down the stairs. After a few minutes he got up and zombie walked into the train

There is another thing that's needs to be on the list

People who make one step into the train and stop walking immediately, blocking the way for all the passengers behind them. Most of them are so occupied with their smartphones. They don't notice the crowd of people behind them.

Just bring in some of those bored cat cafe cats. They would have the time of their life.
