Today we had snow in Tokyo! I am worried that the train ride home will be delayed.
I love this BBC article: "Long hours link to dementia risk." Sometimes I am asked to work until very late, but it is not true that it will lead to dementia. Maybe in some sections, people work day and night on rotation, though I don't need to work on weekends or nights. I can get off around 7 pm everyday, I really hate to work until late.
Sony’s Walkman TV ads are cool. We can experience the possibility of sounds and human creativity. Pink Tentacle wrote about this in more detail.
Yeah! This year's dressed up Orita-sensei appeared at Kyoto University. Do you recognize him? It is Riderman. It’s funny that they didn't choose Kamen Rider V3 (the main character), but Riderman (a side character).
Don Quijote is a well known discount store in Japan. They sell various types of things like food, party goods, home electronics, etc. Their style is "chaos." Most Donki stores look like this; they stack things high and the aisles are so narrow. Since I hate narrow places, I hate Donki and usually don’t go there. Today, I read that their new store opened in Machida and it is much bigger and nicer than the other Donki stores. Oh, I can go there now. This is their first newspaper ad. Good, it looks very cheap. Since Daiso, the biggest 100 shop in Japan, is in that area already, Machida has become a mecca for discount shopping now.
