I believe it is a wonderful custom and my family in the states does it. I rally understood once we had children that crawl on the floor. I'm cracks me up that the natives here think it is unique. There are peoples in the Middle East that do it as well. Turkey, for one.
Posted in: What do you think of the custom of taking one's shoes off before coming indoors at home? Would you do it in your country?

Never too old to improve your lot in life. There have been adults at colleges and universities for simply ages in the US. Time to get with the program Japan. As a university lecturer it is always a delight to have an older student in class ( by older I mean anything from late 20s and up) they up the ante for the younger students and brings wonderful experiences.
Posted in: Japan is having fewer children, so universities want to hold more courses for adults. They also want to contribute to society by helping women enter the working world.

Why not start with the truth when writing textbooks. Bryant would be good.
Posted in: Textbooks are not media to spread the government's viewpoint. They are materials for nurturing the intellect of students so they can think and decide on their own.

Nobody is coming to my house to "make rules." If parents weren't glued to their devices the children wouldn't be either.
Posted in: It’s important to educate primary and middle school students at an early stage about the detrimental effect of harmful websites, and make rules about using the Internet at each household.

I hate it. Trying to move along quickly with my bag, wallet, purchases and then they hand you the money on the receipt that you pretty much have to take with two hands. Then things start dropping on the floor. Now I just point to that little tray and take my change when I am ready.

"Branch out horizontally '" WTH???????
Posted in: From now on I don't think we'll merely have a top-down male society -- but one wherein women will branch out horizontally. Women have the power to embrace a society worn out by the top-down model.
