Is the gold one on her chest a Mac's lapel badge ...? Even that looks like a lovely piece of jewelry.

April 27

I like this renewed facade. Cool & user-friendly. It is nice!

And the quick action for improvement is impressive.

I am more of a fan of JapanToday.

Cool!  I thought I wandered into a wrong site. But this face is now ubiquitous and it is time consuming to just check a list of today's topics; have to scroll down and down and down ...

I love the design, but the user functionality is ???

If there are no sons, I think the most common solution is that a daughter takes a husband to take over the temple as a priest. So, then, if a son has no will to inherit the temple business, they can take a wife to do so in place of him. -- This article led me to think this way.

They are aware of the truth by now. It is about time for them to take action by themselves for their own future.

So, Japanese have to live with unimaginable and unforeknown risks for years ahead as the TEPCO's attempt will be the world's first ever task in the nuclear field. Wisdom from the world is hoped for.

To the writer:

Naomi Hirose

Who he is should be mentioned in the main text, I think.

Posted in: Encounter with an American school lunch See in context


The chicken burger and taco had "no flavor," probably due to a lack of salt (and why the students add ketchup). The US calls for 2.3 grams of salt per day, and the school lunch is probably adjusted accordingly. Meanwhile, Japan allows for 10 grams per day, and the typical kyushoku has 3 grams.

I think ketchup contains well enough salt for eaters to feel that the food with ketchup tastes good. Moreover, is the diet recommendation with such small amount of salt widely accepted and actually followed by Americans?

Häagen-Dazs says supermarkets and convenience stores account for the bulk of its sales in Japan.

This suffices, I think.

Still, you can bet they won’t be throwing their trash around that park anymore.

I bet they will be throwing their trash there again, and again ...

You can enjoy a certain type of Futomaki, a rolled sushi containing deliciously cooked shiitake, wrapped with dried seaweed, at normal non-vegie sushi restaurants.

what a tough job. Is wearing these clothes not adding to danger? Are these guys getting paid extra for this unusual work?
