Japanese pain killers always work fine for me but I am shorter than your average foreigner.
@tmarie Because Merries diapers are better than Pampers apparently. Very soft, breathable so babies don't get diaper rash and the capacity to hold a large amount of urine so they need to be changed less often.

Have you never stayed in a youth hostel? This set up is quite similar. And I am sure they provide lockers to store valuables.

Well, Saint Marianna is considered one of the worst medical schools in Japan so this does not surprise me! Here in Japan finding out where your doctor graduated from is usually a good indicator of their ability.

These look delicious but I was wondering whether these people you promote on Japantoday (I remember another lady making apple related sweets) have the food service/sanitation management licences etc.that are required to run such a business in Japan.

Way to go Japan. Do you think copying America et al. by introducing exit taxes is going to help the economy? Should people work hard and sacrifice themselves for the benefit of the nation alone? A sure way to stymie entrepreneurship! Bureaucrats hate rich people because they will never be rich themselves.

From what my Russian friend tells me the average Russian diet is abysmal even without the junk food! Average lifespan for a Russian male is 66.7years and a quarter of Russian men will die before 55! The reason: VODKA! I don't see them demonizing that though!

Yes, I agree with the above poster. I have always struggled to keep my weight down even though I followed a low fat low sugar diet. I then decided about 6 months ago to try something different. I started eating full fat foods and at the same time restricting my rice intake at dinner to only 3-4 tablespoons. I allow myself as much meat and vegetables as I like with that. You probably think I feel hungry after eating such a small amount of carbohydrates but I don't! I have lost about 9kg with absolutely no struggle. I actually am quite shocked by the weight loss. But I realise that it doesn't mean I am internally healthy.

@Tessa You obviously don't read the Daily Fail, a British paper. They are always going on about William's or Kates' (decreasing /grey) hair!!!
The British royal family are independently wealthy, which is why that can do what they please!

I don't think I like Keiko Kawazoe very much! And Japan sorely needs this influx of tourists. But I do hope that in the future they will take time to venture beyond the main tourist spots and do more leisurely activities like skiing, hiking etc.

And no doubt he will do the obligatory eating of Fukushima produce. Using a 'dashing' foreign prince to convince the locals that everything is all well and good in Fukushima- sneaky, very sneaky!

@Banz10 I think Charlotte is very good in the role, especially seeing she is acting in a language she does not speak. And maybe you are Scottish but for me who is not, her Scottish accent is fine!!!!!
