No boozing please, we’re Japanese

As I have mentioned here many times, in Japan Drunkenness is Next to Godliness…even the Shinto gods love getting ripsnorting wasted.
japanese-drunkdrunk Especially salarymen, the Japanese are known as some of the worst falling down drunks on the planet. You can imagine my surprise when the following survey finds that Japan’s younger folks are much less interested in drinking with 40% of men in their 20s who never or almost never drink.

 

Younger Japanese men less interested in drinking, according to survey
Japan Today | 2016-Jan-05
According to sales tax figures, the consumption of booze is down to about 89% of its heyday in 1996
to help shed light on this trend, wine website WineBazaar conducted a survey of 6,638 men and women between the ages of 20 and 70, asking “How often do you drink?”..
things get interesting when factoring in age as well. Women stay roughly the same, with “non-drinkers” making up 40 to 50% of them regardless of age. For men over 60, only 25% are classified as “non-drinkers” but that number rises significantly to 39.8% when asking men in their 20s.

Basically, 40% of men in their 20s who report they “never or almost never drink” are really saying they can’t afford it. Also, company sponsored drinking is down 80% since the collapse of Japan’s economic “Bubble” in the early ’90s and the “Lost Decade(s)” of the continuing recession since then.

Japan is going cuckoo


As we have said before, Japan is where the traffic lights sing (3Yen / 2006-10-25).   But now it seems that Japan’s pedestrian crossings are going for the birds.

Song melodies at pedestrian crossings nationwide are being phased out in favour of birdcalls.Mulboyne avatar

The decline of the crosswalk song “Toryanse” for crossing signals with birdcalls
goofy Google Translate of Asahi Shimbun | 2016 October 7
The traditional musical crossing signal, “Toryanse,” which meant to aid the visually impaired persons is being replaced throughout Japan with crossing signals using birdcallsthe east-west direction of traffic is marked with a chickadee song and the north-south direction with a cuckoo songThe National Police Agency, which has been promoting the change [had a] demonstration/experiment in 2002 that found that more than half of the visually impaired persons evaluated birdcalls as, “easier to understand sound of the traffic direction than conventional crossing music.”

Today is Crow’s Day in Japan

crow day sticker
A magazine for “Crow Friends” has announced a celebration: Crow's Day

Crows have their own fan club – カラス友の会 – and magazine. Sept 6th has been declared Crow's Day.

The official Crow’s Day website offers the following explanation of the origin of the daycrow-day-explained 9月6日=カラス(クロ―)の日In Japanese the number 9 is “kyu” and the number 6 is “ro[ku]”. Put them together and you get Kyu-ro, pronounced ‘crow’ (and also similar to kuro meaning black in Japanese).

The website goes on to remind us to, “Take power in your crow love.

Pachiko parents: Do you like your Japanese kids…

Pachiko/pinball parents: Do you like your Japanese kids baked or broiled?

In safety push, Nissan turns camera on hot car interiors
The Japan Times | ‏2016-Aug.12
{enabling further child abuse} Nissan is seeking to prevent further tragediesthrough alert messages on its car navigation systems. The message is shown when external temperatures reach 30 degrees or higher...more...

58-degrees

 
Problem: For the past 40 years, every torrid summer in Japan (which lasts an interminable 6 months), pachiko/pinball gambling parents leave their kids in the car to play “just couple of quick games.” This results in dozens of child deaths every year (and zero prosecutions)
.
Solution: Just put up signs in the pachiko parking lots saying, “Parent or guardian leaving children unattended in the car will be fined 1 million yen and can be subject to criminal prosecution” would help prevent the problem. Offering a bounty for people reporting unattended kids would eliminate most of the problem (since other lowlife pachiko people always need money).

Holiday in the concrete dead zone of Japan

Tomorrow is “Ocean Day,” a Japanese national holiday (3Yen / 2015-07-20). To get you in a holiday mood, here are a few reverent thoughts of Japan’s seaside holy Concrete Tetrapods would be apropos.

Japanese-worship

A reader’s email commenting about terapods:
fishy quoter left>I think there are called dolosse.fishy quoter right

Wow. You learn something every day.
South Africa claims concrete tetrapods were invented in 1963 for use in Cape Town, and that the Afrikaans word for tetrapod is dolosse.
wikipedia.org/wiki/Dolos

However according to The Japan Times, in 1950, the Laboratoire Dauphinois d’Hydraulique in Grenoble, France first made them for erosion control.
ancient-tetrapod
 
Looking around at the history of of concrete, basically, nobody invented them–they spontaneously appeared from outer space in the early 1950s around the same time as the UFO sightings, ha, ha.

To quote Alex Kerr author of “Dogs and Demons: Tales from the Dark Side of Japan” (Hill and Wang, 2001):

These projects are mostly unnecessary or worse than unnecessary. It turns out that wave action on tetrapods wears the sand away faster and causes greater erosion than would be the case if the beaches had been left alone.

Surfers and naturalists (and anybody sane) hate the tetrapods because over time they erode away all sand on beaches and destroy the beach habitat creating a concrete dead zone, arrrg.
