Summers in Japan becoming intolerable

TOKYO —
Remember when summer was fun?
Not that enervating heat and humidity are new to Japan, but before global warming, before the urban heat island effect, it was (more or less) tolerable because at least it was natural. In 2010, Tokyo had 71 days of temperatures above 30 degrees Celsius; in 2011 and 2012, more than 60 days each. It’s been 1,000 years since Japan knew such extended heat waves, meteorologist Masamitsu Morita tells Shukan Gendai (July 6). “We have entered a new meteorological era,” he says. This summer, he warns, looks to be even worse.
Here and there, it already is. Nationwide, the week of June 10-16 saw ambulances responding to nearly 1,500 calls from people suffering heatstroke. The nation’s first “tropical nights,” meaning low temperatures of 25 degrees or more, were recorded in Hiroshima and Okayama on June 13 – 30 days earlier than last year (which, as noted above, was bad enough). Okayama’s low that night of 25.4 degrees was 6.4 degrees above average for this time of year.
For the Kanto region this summer, Morita predicts an average temperature 0.5 degrees higher than normal. Half a degree doesn’t sound like much. Any comfort you draw from that is misleading, Morita explains. What it means in layman’s terms is more days than ever before of temperatures near, at or over 40 degrees – at a time when, with 50 of Japan’s 52 nuclear reactors shut down following 2011’s triple nuclear meltdown, pressure is high to conserve energy by turning air conditioners down. “Cool biz” – office dress deregulation designed to make air conditioning less necessary – is the harried company employee’s only workaday defense against the intensified swelter.
It’s not just Japan, of course. “World temperatures could well be setting records this year,” Shukan Gendai quotes the eminent American climatologist James Hansen as forecasting back in January.
Of all forms of suffering, summer heat is probably the one that best brings out the stoic in us. The typical response, Shukan Gendai says, is, “Don’t complain about the heat. Summer’s hot and that’s that!” That reflects well on our character but poorly on our common sense. Temperatures are soaring high enough to turn a discomfort into a danger. Over the past few summers, 40,000-50,000 people being hospitalized for heatstroke has become normal. In 2010, 1,731 people died from it. And in 2010, nuclear reactors, and therefore air conditioners, were still functioning at full capacity.
Worse yet, summer is not only intensifying but lengthening. Once upon a time you could look forward to relief in mid-September. No longer. A worst-case scenario includes water shortages. “The chances that this will be just such a summer,” Shukan Gendai says, “are, unfortunately, extremely high.”

Six great rainy day deals in and around Tokyo

By Casey Baseel
Travel Jul. 04, 2013 - 06:00AM JST


TOKYO —
Summer in Japan also means plenty of rainy days, as humidity levels are at their highest across the country. Thankfully, it’s not all bad news on rainy days, and as long as you’re willing to take an umbrella with you when you go out, you can score some great deals in the Tokyo area.
1. Koichian (Matsuya Asakusa department store, Taito Ward, Hanakwado 1-4-1)
Rain or shine, you’ve got to eat, right? Well the sushi goes half-price on rainy days at take-out counter Koichian’s branch in the basement of the Matsuya department store in Asakusa. Whether you want to use these savings to treat a friend or simply order twice as much for yourself is, of course, up to you. The Asakusa Matsuya is also within strolling distance of Sensoji, Tokyo’s liveliest Buddhist temple which is approached by paved walkways that are easy traverse on a rainy day.
2. Del Sole (Akasaka 3-19-10, Minato Ward)
Head to the Del Sole café in Akasaka, which offers free refills on selected drinks on rainy days. Even better, they also offer free refills of their award-winning gelato, just the thing to cool down with during a sticky Tokyo summer squall. Lucky diners might even get a 50% discount to their bill by winning one of the games of bingo the staff organizes when it rains.
3. Narita Yume Ranch (Chiba Prefecture, Narita City, Nagi 730, open 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.)
While a visit to a farm on a rainy day might seem like a strange choice, Yume Ranch sweetens the deal by discounting their tickets by the same amount as the chance of rain, meaning that tickets are half-off even if there’s only a 50% probability of showers. Aside from barnyard animals and flower fields, for an additional fee, Yume Ranch also offers indoor classes in making ice cream, butter, bread, jam, and even sausages. Admission is 1,200 yen for visitors junior high school-age and up, 700 yen for children over three.
4. Akihabara Parking Garages
UDX Parking (Soto Kanda 4-14-1)
Akihabara Dai Building Parking (Soto Kanda 1-18-13)
Fuji Soft Building (Kanda Neribecho 3)
Until July 31, these three parking garages in Akihabara, Tokyo’s anime and video game shopping mecca, are offering 50% discounts if you pull in while it’s raining outside. You also have to show their ad featured in the free local guide pamphlet Radio Kaikan #9, which can conveniently be obtained inside the garage, as well as at hundreds of stores in Akihabara. As a bonus, parking in Akihabara means you stand a good chance of spotting a couple of “itasha”—cars decked out by hardcore anime fans with decals and graphics of their favorite characters.
5. Pizzeria 1830 Nogizaka (Akasaka 9-6-28, Minato Ward)
If you’ve worked up an appetite, it might be worth heading to Akasaka for dinner at Pizzeria 1830 Nogizaka. From Monday to Thursday of each week, the restaurant offers pizzas at half-price for the first 20 diners to order one on rainy nights. 
6. Landmark Tower (Minato Mirai 2-2-1, Nishi Ward, Yokohama)
And finally, if you’re looking for a romantic place to end the day, there’s the 69th floor observatory in Yokohama’s Landmark Tower. Located just a block away from the bay, on rainy weekdays regular adult admission of 1,000 yen is discounted to 700 yen and includes a drink.
While rain might obscure your view of the city’s unique skyline, the observatory’s 273-meter-high altitude puts you right inside the clouds, making for an otherworldly atmosphere. And of course, wet weather also means fewer noisy kids running around, so you and your sweetheart can snuggle to your hearts’ content.

A man walks by a bamboo tree decorated with colorful strips of paper at a Japanese garden to celebrate Tanabata, or Japan’s star festival, in Tokyo on Thursday. According to legend, deities Orihime (Vega) and her lover Hikoboshi (Altair), separated by the Milky Way, are allowed to meet only once a year on July 7. In Japan people celebrate the festival by writing wishes on strips of paper and hanging them under bamboo trees.

33% of Japanese think marriage is pointless: survey
By Preston Phro
National Jul. 06, 2013 - 06:00AM JST ( 63 )


TOKYO —
Go to college, get a job, meet a guy or girl, and…don’t get married?
A recent survey suggests that almost one-third of Japanese people just can’t see the point in tying the knot and settling down. And after you see what some of them have to say about marriage, you might understand why.
Marriage has long been a staple of Japanese society, with enormous industries dedicated weddings and “omiai” (matchmaking). However, recent decades have seen a shift in social standards and the number of people staying single is expected to grow rapidly in the coming years.
With this mind, the magazine Joshi Spa! conducted a survey inspired by a June event extolling the virtues of not getting married. The magazine revealed that 33.5% of the 37,610 respondents said they didn’t see any merit in marriage.
Here’s one person’s thoughts on marriage: “I’ve hated kids for forever and I never thought that I wanted any, so I kind of feel like there’s not point to it.”
Another respondent said, “If you’re single, you can use your money exactly as you like, and no matter how much you spend on your hobbies or interests, no one will complain, and you can live at your own pace. But if you get married, all of that disappears, so I really want to ask, honestly, is there any merit to getting married?”
Joshi Spa! helpfully broke the results down by age group as well, showing that the largest group of people who had no interest in marriage was in their 30s, with 40.5% of them saying “no!” to exchanging vows. Perhaps unsurprisingly, 38% of those still in their teens teens shrugged the idea of marriage off, while 39.1% of 20-somethings, and 35.9% of people in their 40s were also uninterested in matrimonial bliss.
As may be expected, the older groups were more likely to find value in marriage. However, it’s hard to say if this is a sign of a permanent change in thinking or if the “youngesters” are still just having too much fun to settle down.
Shockingly enough, Internet commenters had a lot to say about this.
—Being broke, there’s more demerit than merit for me.
—It’s probably better not to marry someone who thinks about merits and demerits. Unless you don’t mind just being an ATM.
—The merits are just keeping up appearances and being socially responsible. The need for marriage like in the past is going to just keep getting less and less.
—I’m married, but, honestly, I think it’s better not to. Except for the kids… I like my kids.
—Everyone around me in me in their 30s, 40s, and 50s is getting divorced, and I hear nothing but rumors about affairs–it’s all just stupid. Aside from working together to raise kids, I can’t see any point to marriage.
—It’s great if you marry someone you really like. But going so far as to trying omiai or going out marriage hunting, I don’t see the need.
—Marriage is close to the image of getting a parasite and having it endlessly sucking the essence out of you. Seriously, won’t someone take my pig wife away??
Geez, wouldn’t want to be that last guy’s wife.

Japanese gifts most wanted by foreigners

By Mike



LIFESTYLE JUL. 04, 2013 - 06:00AM JST

TOKYO —

As a foreign resident of Japan, I take occasional trips back home. And on such occasions, I almost always find myself at a surprising loss for ideas when souvenir shopping for friends stateside.



Sure, there are obvious choices: “Hentai” manga makes a great gag gift, for example, but you’re bound to go on some kind of watch list if customs decides to randomly inspect your luggage. Yukata seem universally appreciated by new-agey aunts, and quirky Japanese toys are great for kids. But foolproof, sure-to-please-anybody gifts are surprisingly hard to pick out.



Luckily, a Japanese reporter at Excite Japan, who travels frequently and thus has lots of souvenir purchasing experience, has revealed the top Japanese gifts most likely to please friends and family abroad.



Anything with kanji on it



This one is a no-brainer, as foreigners seem to attribute near-mystical powers to words spelled out in Japanese characters – especially the cheesy ones like “love,” “power,” “family,” and “fried chicken,” the last of which has almost certainly ended up tattooed on a lot of frat kids’ arms.



Just don’t come to Japan expecting to pick up a bunch of kanji T-shirts for friends; you’ll quickly find that the Japanese are more partial to T-shirts featuring hilarious, mangled English, so the only kanji ones you’ll find are mass-produced garbage for gullible tourists.



Food samples and sushi magnets



Those super-realistic plastic food samples sitting on display outside of damn near every Japanese restaurant really are a marvel of art and technology, and are endlessly fascinating to us foreigners. Just tell your friends on the receiving end not to let them sit too long in direct sunlight, or that delicious plastic spaghetti sculpture will share the same fate as that box of Crayolas you left on the sidewalk when you were a kid.



Mini-size goods



Like the sometimes disappointingly small portions at Japanese restaurants, a lot of Japanese goods come in mini-size – which is often a good thing for friends that are constantly on the move. Mini shampoo bottles, mini shaving cream, mini styling kits; you can find a lot of daily commodities in tiny versions here. Honestly, though, we don’t see how this is any different from shoveling the contents of a hotel medicine cabinet into your luggage.



Omiyage



Omiyage is the name given to traditional Japanese souvenirs – almost always food items that come individually wrapped inside ornately decorated boxes. A lot of these go great with tea, come in unique flavors, or are specific to a region of Japan, making for a unique and portable gift that will surely be appreciated.



So whether you’re coming to Japan for a short visit, or vice versa, be sure to pack up some of the above for friends and family on the way out, as well as some hentai manga to plant on your childhood enemy’s doorstep.

'Cool Japan' gives anime heroes a new mission: boost the economy
By Elaine Lies


TOKYO —
The critters, warriors and doe-eyed women of Japanese animation and manga comics have long found fans around the world. But now the Japanese government wants to mobilize them for a far sterner task: boosting the economy.
Enter the “Cool Japan” fund, a $500 million investment of public money aimed at helping Japanese firms promote their cultural wares abroad - an echo of South Korea’s investment in soft power that has lifted its K-pop music industry and rapper Psy to global fame.
In the works for several years, the idea has been seized upon by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe as a way to restore a halo of cool that surrounded Japan Inc and its cutting-edge technological marvels of the time, such as the Walkman.
At stake as well is a share in the dynamic world cultural industry, set to surge more than 40% by 2020 to more than
$9 trillion, economists say.
“There are a lot of good things and convenient things in Japan, and we’d like to offer these up to the world,” said Yoshiaki Akamatsu, of the Creative Industries Division at Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry.
“It seems a real shame to have them stuck in Japan and unknown. If they knew about them, I think there’s lots of things that consumers of the world would like ... and as a result, we hope that Japan itself would grow.”
Abe, whose party has campaigned under the slogan “Take Back Japan”, vowed this year, as part of his overall economic strategy, to triple overseas sales of “Cool Japan” content, such as anime, within five years.
[b style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; vertical-align: baseline;"]What is cool?[/b]
Akamatsu said the plan, set to kick off later this year, harked back to overseas promotions such as “Cool Britannia”, a 1990s surge of renewal following the success of British pop culture spearheaded by bands such as the Spice Girls.
While popular anime and manga characters will be harnessed, “Cool Japan” aims to include Japanese food, fashion and services, such as the sumptuous hospitality of the country’s inns.
What the plan will not do is actually choose what is cool.
“The government’s role is to provide high-risk funds, which cannot be offered by the private sector alone,” Akamatsu said. “It’s not up to the government to decide if particular content is popular or not, the market has to do that.”
But it may be an uphill battle.
In 2011, Japan was a net importer of content, including books, movies and magazines, to the tune of 70 billion yen, compared with exports of 16.2 billion yen, said Mitsubishi UFJ Research and Consulting.
The exception was video games, with exports of 293 billion yen and imports of only 2.1 billion.
In addition, skeptics wonder about specifics, such as who will manage the fund and whether any government can be the arbiter of cool.
“The move is led by the governments, the bureaucrats,” said Ichiya Nakamura, a former rock band producer who has participated in other government cultural promotions.
“Cool Japan, pop culture, are activities carried out by the private sector, on its own. So when we promote them it must be led by the private sector.”

TOKYO —
Summer in Japan brings with it many good things to distract you from the heat—pineapple flavored “chu-hai,” “kakigori” (snow cones), and fireworks, just to name a few. Luckily, there is also the one event at which you can enjoy all three together: the “matsuri” or festivals.
[b style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; vertical-align: baseline;"]Sumida River Fireworks Festival, Taito-ku/Sumida-ku, Tokyo, July 27, 7:05 p.m.-8:30 p.m.[/b]
In the event of rain, this festival event will be postponed until the following day, weather permitting.
Getting there: Asakusa Station, Ginza Subway Line
Exploding over the Sumida River, this incredible fireworks display is one of the most anticipated over the “hanabi” (fireworks) season, and dates back to 1732, when fireworks were first used in festivals. Nowadays, nearly a million of your closest friends will congregate to witness this hanabi spectacular as characters such as Doraemon and Hello Kitty, meaningful kanji and intricate patterns decorate the summer night sky.
There are two viewing areas, and it is best to get there early in order to claim some space. Pack a hand fan too, as it can get quite warm, particularly when everyone is at a standstill, mesmerized by the dancing lights above them. Plenty of food and beverages are on offer from outdoor stalls, and these are great nights to get in amongst the cheer. Many Japanese will wear the traditional summer yukata, so why not do the same? At this time of year, local department stores have them in stock and you can outfit yourself and your family or friends for a very reasonable price.
[b style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; vertical-align: baseline;"]Asagaya Tanabata Matsuri, Asagaya Pearl Center Shopping Street, Asagaya, Tokyo, Aug 7-11[/b]
Getting there: Asagaya Station, JR Chuo Line
Literally translated as “evening of the seventh,” “tanabata” is a star festival with some very sweet and family-friendly activities associated with it. The original intent of tanabata was to honor deities, represented by the stars Vega and Altair, meeting once a year (separated by the Milky Way for the rest of the time). Yet nowadays, people commemorate this festival by writing hopes and wishes on small pieces of paper, which are then hung from bamboo or a wish tree. The next day, the bamboo or wish tree is either set afloat on a river or burned.
For 60 years, Asagaya has held its own unique tanabata matsuri, with interesting papier-mâché decorations hanging from the Pear Center Shopping Street. While you can enjoy the tanabata decorations all day long, it’s best to go after dusk, when the festival atmosphere really takes hold, and check out the food and souvenir stalls as well.
[b style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; vertical-align: baseline;"]Tokyo Bay Grand Fireworks Festival, Tokyo, August 10, 7 p.m.-8:30 p.m.[/b]
Getting there: Hamamatsucho Station, JR Yamanote Line; Toyosu Station, Yurakucho Subway Line; Kachidoki Station, Toei Oedo Subway Line
This is one night the Tokyo skyline truly comes alive. Rainbow Bridge and its surrounds prove to be a stunning backdrop for this incredible explosive display. Over 80 minutes, around 12,000 shells are launched from barges in Tokyo Bay. Although Harumi Wharf, the main festival site, requires you to pre-purchase tickets for access (see website here, Japanese only), there are a number of great free viewing points around Harumi, Toyosu and Odaiba. Not surprisingly, you must get there early to stake your claim, and as with most firework displays, many people don the yukata to add to that summer festival atmosphere.
[b style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; vertical-align: baseline;"]Sumida River Toro Nagashi, Asakusa, Tokyo, Aug 13, from 6:30 p.m.[/b]
Getting there: Asakusa Station, Ginza Subway Line
Taking part in the customs of Obon, on this evening around 3,000 Japanese people will float lit “chochin” (paper lanterns) down the Sumida River. It is believed the chochin will help guide the spirits of loved ones who have died over the past year, to the afterlife. Watch from Azuma Bridge as the river warmly glows underneath the lanterns gently moving with the current. For 1,500 yen, you too can send a lantern on its way and perhaps remember someone special from your life who is no longer here. It is a beautiful and touching ceremony to witness.
[b style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; vertical-align: baseline;"]Harajuku Omotesando Genki Matsuri Super Yosakoi, Tokyo, Aug 24-25, 10 a.m.-8 p.m. and 10 a.m.-5 p.m.[/b]
Getting there: Harajuku Station, JR Yamanote Line; Meiji-Jingumae Station, Chiyoda and Fukutoshin Subway Lines; Omotesando Station, Chiyoda, Ginza and Hanzomon Subway Lines.
“Yosakoi,” a traditional Japanese summer dance, had its humble beginnings in Kochi, Shikoku in 1954, and quickly gained popularity across Japan. Today, the summer season sees a myriad of matsuri all over the country dedicated to this dance. 
As you can imagine, taking anything traditional and dropping it into the center of Japanese pop culture, is going to have some amazing results. The Super Yosakoi does not disappoint. Over the festival’s two days, around 90 dance teams, dressed in a mish mash of modern and conventional threads, take part in the parade. This also sees them competing against each other, keeping time to the “naruko,” an old clapper the people of Koichi used to scare birds from their fields. A great outing for the family, kids love the color of this event, but given its central and already popular location, expect some massive crowds. Over 800,000 attended last year.
[b style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; vertical-align: baseline;"]Koenji Awa Odori, Koenji, Tokyo, Aug 24-25, 5 p.m.-8 p.m.[/b]
Getting there: Koenji Station, JR Chuo Line
Koenji’s annual “awa” dance, Awaodori, is one of Tokyo’s most vibrant and liveliest festivals. Dating back to 16th-century Tokushima, Shikoku, it’s believed that upon completion of the local castle, the region’s feudal lord plied his people with alcohol to rejoice­­—and rejoice they did! We’ve all seen what booze does to the average quiet and reserved salaryman at an end-of-year “bonenkai” (party). Well, by boozing up an entire city, this lord got his party and more—an outbreak of dance across the region! How this came to be linked to Koenji, I am not sure, but the Awaodori has been celebrated for over 50 years and is well worth putting on the calendar.
[b style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; vertical-align: baseline;"]Asakusa Samba Carnival, Central Asakusa, Tokyo, Aug 31, from 1:30 p.m.[/b]
Getting there: Asakusa Station, Ginza and Toei Asakusa Subway Lines; Tawaramachi Station, Ginza Subway Line
Send off summer with some samba! With its near-naked dancers, glittery costumes, and a hell of a lot of people — over 500,000 in fact — you could be mistaken for thinking you’ve somehow found yourself at Rio’s Carnival. Started in 1980 as a way of boosting the area’s popularity to draw in tourists, the Asakusa Samba Carnival is clearly about all things samba. Combining a samba competition, which brings in samba dance troupes from all around the world, with a colorful and glitzy parade, means that there are some serious moves and incredible costumes on display. The parade begins at 1:30 p.m., and runs east to west along Kaminarimon-dori, from Senso-ji Temple to Tawaramachi Station.

Colorful streamers and decorations hang from bamboo poles in arcades outside Sendai Station on Thursday night, as the 2013 Sendai Tanabata Matsuri came to a close. The theme for this year’s festival was “tsunagu” or connect, referring to the bringing together of those affected by the Great East Japan Earthquake, and their supporters within Japan and around the world. Information on the history and decorations of the festival can be seen here.

Japan's giant robot proliferation continues as filming starts on live-action Patlabor movie
By Casey Baseel
[b class="category_title" style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px 0px 0px 12px; font-size: 10px; vertical-align: baseline; background-image: url(http://www.japantoday.com/img/imageset1.png); outline: none; text-decoration: none; color: rgb(37, 37, 37); font-family: 'Lucida Grande', Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; white-space: nowrap; text-transform: uppercase; font-weight: bold; background-position: -300px -411px; background-repeat: no-repeat no-repeat;"]ENTERTAINMENT[/b] AUG. 10, 2013 - 06:17AM JST ( [b style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; vertical-align: baseline; color: rgb(236, 28, 36); font-weight: bold;"]3[/b] )


TOKYO —
Japan loves its fictional robots. The adorable Doraemon and unsettling Evangelion are instantly recognizable to both young and old. The giant statue of Gundam in Tokyo has become a major tourist attraction, despite being in the middle of Odaiba, which was already a major entertainment district with no shortage of other, hipper attractions.
And now, another robot, the Patlabor, has joined Gundam in making the leap into the three-dimensional world, towering size intact.
In the gigantic pile of giant root anime Japan has produced, Patlabor remains unique. Whereas most mecha series follow a military force or team of superheroes, often in deep space or on alien worlds, Patlabor instead gives its machines to the Tokyo police department.
Even the title itself reflects this down-to-earth sensibility, being a combination of “patrol car” and “labor,” the franchise’s term for its robots that references their original use as construction machines. Being a vehicle with a motor, the robot of course has a license plate, and instead of a laser rifle, its armaments are simply jumbo-sized versions of the standard-issue revolver and shotgun used by Japanese police officers.
Helmed by the creative team Headgear, the series featured distinctive character artwork from designer Akemi Takada, already known for her work on “Creamy Mami” and “Kimagure Orange Road,” and direction by Mamoru Oshii, who would later go on to international success with the “Ghost in the Shell” movies. Patlabor was one of the earliest cross-media hits, with manga, TV episodes, video games, and animated motion pictures during the height of its popularity in the late ‘80s and early ‘90s.
Filming has recently begun for a live-action theatrical Patlabor movie, scheduled for release in 2014. Old-school practical effects fans will be happy to know that at least some of the scenes will be forgoing CG images and instead relying on a full-scale mock-up of the Patlabor itself.
