Exaclty what he did needs to be blamed. However, who taught students to get into a car when they are asked something by the driver? I think it's common thing to know you shouldn't follow a person you don't know. Also, this should be naturally taught by people around you such as neighbor or school teacher.

Posted in: What sort of wearable tech do you see being developed in the near future? See in context

It might be childish to say, but I hope eyeglasses with embeded monitor will be developed. That's been thought to be a science fiction, however, such technology can be realized when recent wearable ones are considered. If so, we might not have to stick to the small screen of the smartphone when you're walking around the street. Furthermore, I hope that type of eyeglasses to be as thin as they are today.

I've never heard of such belief. I believe the existence of clouds which thought to appear before the earthquake occurs, and it's called "jishingumo." I'm not in geology, but some of my predictions based on that type of cloud were right, so I hope this investigation method is studied more in the future.

Posted in: How do you think the planned increase in the sales tax in October will affect your spending habits? See in context

Not in particular, in my view. Because I don't often purchase expensive goods such as TV, PC or luxrury car, or rather I cannot afford to buy them as the salary doesn't increase, actually our employer is unwilling to do so. On the contrary, it'll become a little easier to caluculate the total cost at the supermarket than in a few dacades.

Posted in: What are the pros and cons of teleworking? See in context

The pros is that you will be relieved stress such as commuting in the crowded public transportation, getting busy in deal with family member, children in particular, innthe morning. The cons, I think, is that you might be less communicative in business field because of lacking of the opportunity to have person to person conversation even though you have telecommunication tools.

I'm teaching English at high school, so I want to try teleworking, but I don't know whether it works or not.

Posted in: How much water have you been drinking a day during the current heatwave in Japan? Are there any other drinks you prefer to quench your thirst? See in context

I usually drink more or less 500ml barley tea called "mugicha," or mineral water. I don't drink sports drinks so often. I prefere barley tea the best. It plays a roll in decreasing body temperature, and good flavor of roasted barley makes your mouth refreshing, compared to sugar-containd drinks.

I'm going to go outside and lead visitors to the parking lot for more than one hour. I'm really afraid of getting heatstroke, so I purchased umbrella called "higasa" which is used at the hot sunny weather yesterday, and brought another shirt. Until now, "higasa" is not widely taken root in male workers, therefore I'll be a pioneer in this circumstance.

If they become highly sophisticated to deal with any troubles or unpredicted incidents, the number of our jobs might decrease, but I don't think these AI and robots will be like that for a long while, so I'm not too afraid of some jobs being taken place now and in a few dacades.

Posted in: Why do you think drinks containing tapioca have become the latest rage in Japan, especially among young women? See in context

Mostly, I think, because of its rice cake like texture with no taste. That's why tapioka perfectly matches any drinks. Badically, rice cake like texture used as in "mochi-mochi, " is widely prefered by Japanese, especially the young.

I don't think recent vaccination is safer than the old one, so I does not cause serious health problems like ones that occeredany years ago. Originally, vaccination is required inject weakened virus or other causes of illness, thus I think preventing every side effect is immpossible.

Posted in: How have you found the service at convenience stores staffed by non-Japanese? See in context

In my view, each convenience store needs to employ some staffs from foreign country. Recently, I have watched foreign customers bothering on how to communiate with the Japanese staff members. In terms of the service level, they just need more training.

Posted in: Do you ever worry that robots or AI will become so powerful one day that they will destroy humans? Or does that only happen in movies? See in context

I don't think they will destroy our life, unless we demand anything entirely for them. The robot or AI is just a tool which improves our daily life. Robot or AI should not take over our jobs completely because working hard for them improves our creativity and humanity, so our life will be improved more if we combine our good point with theirs. Therefore, we need live together controling robot or AI.

Posted in: What do you think of sports stars who shriek, grunt or yell out during play? See in context

I don't care them at all. It's natural thing that you brace yourself to do something. Moreover, in badminton play for example, you are able to smash more strongly when you yell at the impact than do not. However, I don't think it good to say something violent for the other players or audiences. That's the manner.

Posted in: What do you think of school uniform dress codes in Japan? See in context

I don't care about the dress codes too much. But one thing I want to state is that the dress codes are oldfashioned. One example is that girls are obliged to wear skirt instead pants, whereas boys have to wear pants instead of the shorter one. By the way, I still haven't been convinced that a lot of schools have harsh rules for hairstyle, especially againt boys. What do you think? I'd like to talk about that matter in the next time.

A dark night as if everyboby desappeared. When that disaster occured, I was a high school student. It took two more hours to get home than usual due to the power failure. When I got to my home towm, I couldn't say anything at that moment because no persons and no cars are on the street. No sounds can hear. I felt as if I were in the town in ruins. Then fear and anxiety came in my mind. I'll never forget what I saw, hear and felt.

Posted in: A dispute between convenience store chain 7-Eleven Japan and one of its franchise stores in Higashiosaka, Osaka Prefecture, which closes between 1 a.m. and 6 a.m. after ending its 24-hour service on Feb 1 due to a staff shortage, has brought the industry's 24-hour service into the spotlight. Do you think convenience stores need to be open 24 hours a day? See in context

Not necessarily, I think.

I have worked at a convenience store when I was in a university. As a store clerk, I don't think it is necessary for all convenience stores to be open 24 hours a day. At my former workplace, there were few customers I dealt with after 10:00 p.m. This means foods and drinks get expired and are throw away as wastes.

However, some stores need to be open until the last train services are completely ended.

Thus the headquarter should allocate the right to choose the policy of the time of operation depending on the situation.

Posted in: For train fans: What is the most enjoyable train ride you have ever taken? Where did you go to and what sort of train was it? See in context

I'm Japanese. The most enjoyable train ride I've ever taken is every commuter train which connects rural areas with metropolitan areas, especially Tokyo. In particular, the Keiyo line which connects Chiba prefecture with Tokyo is the best. The Keiyo line is one of lines operated be JR east Co. It departs from Soga station, which is not so urban area compared to Chiba city, to Tokyo, which is the center of Japan. The route of the Keiyo line runs along the Tokyo Bay, so you can enjoy the beautiful views of Yokyo waterfront district. Moreover, what I enjoy the most is the changes of the views from rural residential area to urban area. This gaps is someting enjoyable. Once you have an opportunity to visit Japan, I highly recommend you to use this route. But be careful, due to the location, trains are easily affected by the wind from the sea, so we often find them delayed.

Posted in: How should teachers deal with young children who come to live in Japan without being able to speak Japanese? See in context

Firstly, not only teachers but also each and everyone of us should change our thinking. For example, we have to deal with them as one child, not as a foreigner.

Second, the government need to reduce the teachers workload so that they have enough time to prepare for the problem.

Finally, our community as well as teachers need to support them.

So, We should think about this probblem, instead of giving a pressure to teachers to deal with.
