Hmmm, I call BS about how safe it is. We have places for kids to walk to school-they're called sidewalks and they are wider than the green lines in Japan.

This is so great. I would love for this level of trust and honesty to exist here. I love the basket for your purse the temporary seat covers in the taxis the animated cross walks and the fact that children could leave their backpacks and not have to worry about their things being taken.

The last image with the stuck mascot is in Taiwan, not Japan. Most of the things described here also apply to Taiwan in fact.

You won't believe how excited I got while reading this article after learning I have a little bit of Japanese in my ancestry.

You'd be hard-pressed to find a vending machine that sells beer in Japan anymore. Japan started cracking down on teenage drinking in the late 1990s, and once a beer vending machine's license expired, it usually was not renewed. These days, you can't even go into a supermarket without hearing an announcement that alcoholic drinks cannot be sold to anyone under 20 years of age.

Some more comments-- Most turnstiles in Japanese train stations are gated. The gate will only open if the turnstile computer deems that you have inserted the proper ticket, or that you have sufficient funds in your electronic money card to pay for your trip.

And that first picture of a subway sleeper-- he is occupying 3 seats in a section that is designated for passengers with special needs. Shitsurei!

And I've never seen any shirts sold at a 7-11-- just the usual basic convenience store stuff, except for gasoline. Japanese convenience store's don't sell gasoline.

One more comment-- the "bamboo charcoal" bread (竹炭のちぎりパン) just contains a trace amount of bamboo charcoal powder (around 18 grams), which is just a fraction of the 1000g or so of its traditional bread ingredients.
