Posted in: Should there be an age limit for driving licenses? See in context

It definitely should. Cars sometimes become killer for pedestrians or other drivers. I don't want elders to be a criminal of the traffic accident. We need courage not only to step forward, but also to step back or give up something.

Posted in: March 11, 2011: What are your memories of that day? See in context

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.

I think coustunes and related items from superheroes, such as "Kamen Rider" or "Patranger" have been loved by a lot of children. I would often shout some set phrases wearing these goods, things like "Henshin! (Change!)."

Posted in: Japanese city to use AI to predict seriousness of school bullying See in context

I have a concern of introducing AI to detect the seriousness of bullying. How should teachers and edcation board deat with the problem when students, who are under the bully, are judged as low risk of being escalated? I think the education board is over looking this point.

Posted in: Backpack-wearing train users in rush hour have been ranked as the biggest annoyance among commuters, according to the results of a survey released by Japan Private Railway Association in Tokyo. What do you think about that? See in context

Sometimes it is unavoidable to for commuters, especially business persons and students, to carry a lot of things in their bag. In this case, we have to be generous to it. On the other hand people who wear a large backpack, especially travellers, have to be conscious of this problelm. They can avoid getting crowded train or use limited express. In this way, each of us have to be careful not to bother other passengers around us.

Posted in: Do you think the 2020 Tokyo Paralympics will help make Japan a more inclusive and accessible society for disabled people, such as resulting in more barrier-free facilities, for example? See in context

Focusing on Tokyo and areas around there, yes. Unfortunately, I don't think the local governments are planing to promote more barrier-free on public facilities and others. Because they will not be able to benefit from the Olympic held on the metroplitan area.

Posted in: Under the current labor system in Japan, companies are required to keep employees who wish to continue working after retirement age until at least the age of 65. The government wishes to raise the ceiling to 70. Do you think that is a good idea? See in context

I don't think so. i would rather ask the government that "do you think people more than 70 years old have lower risk of driving large truck or operating airplanes?" Ministers are just sitting and sleeping in a meeting, so they can work there until 70 years old.

Posted in: Where do you like to buy furniture in Japan? See in context

I would say ''Nitori," one of the largest company manufacturing furniture in Japan. Also, I like the slogan saying "onedan ijyo," which means "you can get the benefit other than that of lower price." Actually, more than half of furniture in my room are occupied by Nitori's products. Thanks to these products, my room is well arranged today.

Posted in: Is there an equivalent of the Japanese word 'natsukashii' in other languages? See in context

I'm Japanese, and I don't know how to express the word "Kitsui." It doesn't mean "tight" in English. When you face or come across some difficulties, you can say "Kitsui." It's something like that it is difficult for me to finish lots of this task all at once by myself.

Posted in: Why does paternity leave remain low in Japan? See in context

It is very easy to answer to this question. Due to the bad idea that "men are obliged to work harder than women, because you are male." I think the same idea is still remaing in many workplaeces. Here is an example. Most of theachers, especially in junior high school or high school, are supervising club activities. Recently each teachers have to take care of more than one club. For me, there is no complaint because we understand that we have shortages of teachers and we chose to be a teacher. The problem is that most of male workers are allocated baseball club, basketball club, tennis club and so on, on the other hand, female workers usually are allocated not so active club. And superiors often say "because you are male, supervise clubb of sports." Don't you think it's absurd? This is one of bad conditions in workplaces. So, I think you can understnd the reason that low rate of paternity leave connot decrease.

Posted in: Do you think the world is more dangerous today than it was two years ago? See in context

I can't necessarily say that it is becoming more dangerous or less dangerous. When it comes to think about each incidents, each of them have become big, complicated serious, and also included many countries related to them. So I think the numbers of the problems have becoming less than two years ago, but one big problem happens.
