Neck underwear

Ok, ok, the-rest-of-the-story is that Kubi no shitagi (首の下着) directly translates as “neck underwear,” which is one of the last-gasp marketing attempts of the nearly dead towel industry of Japan.

 
The Oo brand is a bit more ‘creative’ in their efforts (takenosenko.jp/oo/about)

It’s a travesty but…

Fukushima nuke statue apology

Criticism of the Fukushima City art installation of “Sun Child” statue wearing radiation protective suit
sankei.com | 2018.8.12 (funky Google Translate)
“Fighting rumor damage of Fukushima nuclear accident”: Amid criticism of the statue installed near JR Fukushima Station, a public apology was issued on the 12th.
Created by the artist, Kenji Yanobe, the “Sun Child” statue is about 6.2 meters high and depicts a child with its protective helmet removed and a chest-mounted radiation dosimeter indicating “000.”
At the statue’s unveiling ceremony held on May 3, Mayor Hiroshi Kibata said, “Contemporary art is abstractly expressed unlike science” and asked for understanding…blah, blah, blah…
More (in Japanese)

 

In a way the criticism of the statue by people of Fukushima City is understandable since the level of background radiation in Fukushima City and most Fukushima prefecture is the same as anywhere else in Japan.
