Omiya-Minami High School of Saitama Prefecture won the 23rd High School Manga Championship of Japan with a reinterpreted cartoon of the priority seating sign (R) found on Japanese trains.
According to Ky0d0 News (2014-Aug-08) this winning manga depicts:

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.

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

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? ?)
A good, standard conversational answer that many Japanese salarymen say is, “Sleep.”

Japan had the least–less than seven hours and 15 minutes of sleep.
