Charged up in Tokyo


An important thing to notice is that when its available, electric charging is free at parking lots in Kanto/the Greater Tokyo Area. It just to much hassle to meter the electricity delivered and add that tiny cost to already substantial parking fees in Tokyo.

With judicious planning—there’s an app for that—a person with a plug-compatible electric car could avoid ever having to buy “fuel.”

For example, my local IKEA and my ward office offer free charging stations in their parking lots as do most of the larger expressway rest stops. Refer to the charging station information at: ev.gogo.gs

free-parking

When I buy a new car, it would be stupid not buy a full EV/Electric Vehicle since I could charge up an EV with my carport’s rooftop solar cells—ZERO “fuel” costs, W0ot!

*Good luck with building anything on time for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
The average age of a Japanese construction worker is well over 40 years old and a third of the workforce is over age 55 with many of them are expected to retire soon. And of course, foreign labor is out of the question for pure Japan.

Every Japanese’s dream: Sleep, glorious SLEEP!

When you talking with a Japanese person for the first time, the standard conversational gambit is for you to be asked, “What is your hobby?” (Shumi wa nan desu ka? shumi wa nan desu ka?)
A good, standard conversational answer that many Japanese salarymen say is, “Sleep.”

China had the most–more than nine hours of sleep.
Japan had the least–less than seven hours and 15 minutes of sleep.
I get at least 12 hours of cumulative naps every 24. zzzzzz….


A few of the many reports on the 3Yen about Japanese sleep deprivation include:
