  • Keep Cool This Summer!
  • The Japanese news media is reporting something that we don’t need a weatherman to tell us. This summer has been unusually hot
    , with temperatures exceeding 40 degrees Celsius in certain parts of Japan . For those of you not familiar with Celsius temperat
    ures, trust me when I say that’s hot , especially when mixed with Japan’s notorious summer humidity. The media has reported t

  • Greetings!
  • This is Jorge Chiu .Some pronounce my first name as George in English, and my last name like the first part of Chewbacca from Star
    Wars . I am originally from Southern California (yes the sunny part with the beaches ) and graduated university with an East Coa
    st education. Prior to Japan I worked as a talent management consultant based in Hong Kong. After about a year I felt Japan was s

  • The U.S.-North Korea Summit
  • The highly anticipated meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korea’s Kim Jong-Un has wrapped, and it seems that there were no major surprises ― at least good ones. Prior to the summit, speculation was rampant about what would be accomplished. Could there be an official end to the Korean WarMight there be some concrete steps taken toward nuclear disarmament NopeIn fact, the U.S. [続きを読む]

  • The Loch Ness Monster Gets a DNA Test
  • In the Western world, the Loch Ness Monster is one of the best known myths of recent memory. The creature, nicknamed Nessie, purpo
    rtedly lives in Scotland’s Loch Ness and supposedly has for hundreds of years (if not millions more). What it is (if anything) r
    emains a mystery to this day. Nessie, as you might expect, always captures the imagination of children . Who wouldn’t want to b
    elieve that [続きを読む]
  • Has the Real D. B. Cooper Been Found?
  • The name D. B. Cooper probably doesn’t mean much in Japan. But in America, he has been a well-known figure for decades. Mystery still surrounds just who D. B. Cooper really was. In 1971, a man identifying himself as D. B. Cooper got an airplane , told the cabin crew that he had a bombon him, and was able to secure a large sum of money that he demanded from authorities after the plane temporaril [続きを読む]
  • A Historic Breakthrough on the Korean Peninsula
  • Yesterday’s news brought pictures and video that a year ago would have seemed impossible to believe . President Moon of South K
    orean and Kim Jong-Un of North Korea met on the DMZ to begin negotiations to end the Korean War and perhaps even to denuclearize t
    he peninsula. It was less than a year ago when the world appeared to be on the brink of war.President Trump repeatedly taunted
    Kim as “L [続きを読む]
  • The Changing of the Seasons
  • March seems like ancient history at this point, but something interesting happened during that month that I think is worth examini
    ng. In the middle of the month, it snowed. This is quite unusual, as it usually only snows in Tokyo in January or February. So mid
    -March is not the time in which most people expect a snowstorm . Roughly a week later, the cherry blossoms began blooming, and th

  • The 2018 Academy Awards
  • While it’s mostly old news at this point, I thought I’d share a few comments about the recent Academy Awards held earlier this month. I’ve watched the Oscars for more than 20 years, and while I’m not always as good at predicting the outcome as some others seem to be there, it does seem that the Oscars are usually adept at making the wrong choices. In my humble opinion, of course. For instan [続きを読む]
  • Get Ready for Cherry Blossoms!
  • It's been a long, cold winter. For the first time in four years, Japan had a couple of major snowstormsthat took weeks to mel
    t. While some days recently have warmed up, today is rather chilly, and to make matters worse, it's raining as well. But mi
    d-March is upon us, and by the end of the month, cherry blossom season will be in full bloom. (No pun intended.) It's a littl
    e hard for me to believe. [続きを読む]
  • Should Smoking Be Banned in Japan?
  • Well, certainly not totally, but I think the title is pretty clear. In most public spaces, smoking is becoming less and less acce
    ptable. The dangers of secondhand smoke have been well-documented for years. But the law has been slow in catching up. Due to th
    e upcoming Olympics in 2020 , Japan is currently wrestling with this issue. What to do about smokingThe national government origi

  • The Winter Olympics begin in South Korea
  • The Winter Olympics in South Korea are officially under way, and the whole world certainly seems to be watching . Some people ar
    e a lot less interested in the athletics of the event and more in the political intrigue involving North and South Korea .Given t
    he historic nature of it, that definitely makes sense. Kim Yo Jong, Kim Jong Un’s younger sister, is in South Korea for the Ol
    ympics. Her [続きを読む]
  • Snow Returns to Tokyo
  • Well, it’s happened again. While it’s not as bad as last time, it is still remarkable that it returned at all. Following on the heels of last week’s massive snowstorm, which snarled mass transportation and left people stranded all over Tokyo, more snowfallhas arrived in Japan’s capital. But it’s a little different this time. As of the early afternoon on Friday, the snow hasn’t accumulated, [続きを読む]
  • Snow
  • Tokyo was hit by a rare snowstormrecently (22nd January 2018).Although Tokyo gets the odd bit of snow almost every winter, it’s rare for it to be heavy and to actually settle. On the 24th of November 2016 Tokyo had a bit of snow , which didn’t settle. However, this was actually the first time snowhad fallen in November since 1962. Here’s a photo from that day: The last time Tokyo experie [続きを読む]
  • Snow Falling on Tokyo
  • Monday was a very interesting day . When I left my home to go to work, it was lightly snowing with a mere dusting of snow visible
    at any given time. I didn't think much of it; in fact, it had already lightly snowed earlier in the winter.So what's the
    problem, right Wrong. The problem is, the snow never stopped . It kept building, building, and building, and when it was all said
    and done, about 23 [続きを読む]
  • Could North Korea be changing its tune?
  • Something interesting in North Korea, but whether it’s a good or a bad thing remains to be seen . On the surface, it seems that
    perhaps the regime there is seeking improved relations with its neighbors to the south. On the other hand, skeptics contend that t
    his is nothing more than a diversion. On New Year’s Day, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un announced his intention to participate
    in the Wint [続きを読む]
  • Food culture
  • Differences I observed in food culture between Australia and Japan As someone that loves to cook and eat delicious food , one t
    hing I was very excited about before coming to Japan was the food here. While Australia doesn’t necessarily have a unique “Au
    stralian cuisine”, it does however produce a lot of great, modern fusion food, due to its large immigrant population and thus mu

  • 2018: Happy New Year!
  • We are just a few days into the New Year, so I thought it would be a good idea to think about the upcoming year and to discuss wha
    t we might expect . I recently read an article online in which the author cited a survey that said most people felt optimistic ab
    out 2018. How do you feel Do you agree According to the survey, an overwhelming majority of people believed that the New Year woul

  • 2017: The Year in Review
  • Now that Christmas has come and gone, most people’s attention has turned to the coming new year. In 2018, many people will be lo
    oking for a fresh start. Overall, the year will be full of surprises, just like most years are. But how was 2017? Let’s take a
    look back. The biggest and most consequential event of the year was the inauguration of Donald Trump as the new president. Not o

  • Bonenkai Season
  • If it’s the end of the year in Japan , it’s bonenkai season . If the word “bonenkai ” is unfamiliar to you, it’s essentially an end-of-the-year party. Things like this simply aren’t done in the U.S. where co-workers aren’t required to socialize with each other the way they are in Japan . It’s certainly an interesting difference between the two countries . It is not uncommon for a Japane [続きを読む]
  • Welcome to the Holiday Season!
  • In the U.S., Thanksgiving has just happened, and while it has historically been an important holiday for many Americans, it mostly
    gets ignored in Japan. It’s not hard to see why. Thanksgiving doesn’t much international appeal, certainly not in the way tha
    t Halloween does. Its origins are steeped in American history . While the details of what happened way back when can easily be f
    ound online, [続きを読む]
  • Temple stay in Koya-san
  • Recently, my friend and I stayed at a temple lodging (or shukubo) at the famous mountain temple town of Koya-san, as part of a big
    ger Kii peninsula trip.Koya-san was established by the founder of Shingon buddhism, Kukai (popularly known as Kobo Daishi).Before
    arriving at the temple, my friend and I walked a small part of the world heritage Kumano Kodo pilgrimage trail, called Matsumoto-t
    oge. It wa [続きを読む]
