I've spent a lot of time in Tokyo over the years. I took this picture somewhere along the Arakawa tram line in Tokyo back in March 2001. I like it for a lot of reasons: the materials that are visible, the washing hanging out, the telegraph pole and the blue sky. The advertising sign completed the shot for me because of the device I was snapping with on that day (a disposable Fujifilm camera that cost ¥990). To me, the picture just says 'life' and it reminds me of everything that is new in the world, not old or decaying. Set against the seeming permanence of the sky, the concrete and brick cladding is cracked and the steel is corroding. The scene reminds me of the impermanence of things and the notion that out of the old the new is continually being generated. #newhere #photography #tokyo #japan #arakawaline

Kondo Isami — Badass of the Week
“Not one of the paper screens was left intact, all of them having been smashed to pieces. The wooden boards of the ceiling were also torn apart where men who had been hiding under the floorboards were stabbed with spears from below. The tatami mats in a number of the rooms, both upstairs and downstairs, were spotted with fresh blood. Particularly pitiful were arms and feet, and pieces of facial skin with the hair still attached scattered about.”

—Nagakura Shinpachi, assistant vice commander of the Shinsengumi
Wow, absolutely badass troops and what a massacre they did. Seriously.

Japan: Was Shopping in Fernost so besonders macht

Als einen wichtigen Grund für den Unterschied zwischen japanischer und deutscher Servicekultur sehe ich ein grundsätzlich anderes Verständnis. In Deutschland gibt es das Sprichwort „Der Kunde ist König“. Und genauso werden die Kunden inzwischen oft auch behandelt: durch Weggucken oder -ducken, solange es eben geht.

Denn allem Anschein nach ist tief in unsere historische Erinnerung eingebrannt, dass dem Volk höhere Steuern, Kriegsdienst oder andere Mühsal drohen, wenn der Monarch ruft. Und dann will er womöglich auch noch die Preise drücken, weil er es für ein Privileg hält, ihm dienen zu dürfen. Da ist es nur rational, den Kunden zu meiden.
Exakt so ist es leider oft! Sehr treffend.

Space station cargo mission grounded by launch pad fire – Spaceflight Now

Space station cargo mission grounded by launch pad fire
 
Yay. Japan's Hayabusa2 has touchdown on asteroid Ryugu again and possibly collected more samples.
Japan's Hayabusa2 spacecraft has touched down on Ryugu for a second time, bagging samples which hopefully contain material from the subsurface of the asteroid.
[...]
The first touchdown in February saw Hayabusa2 successfully collect samples from the primitive C-type asteroid Ryugu, achieving one of the main science goals of the mission.

JAXA and ISAS however decided to proceed with a second touchdown in order to boost sample volume, perform an unprecedented multi-sampling from a planetary body and, crucially, collect subsurface material excavated by the SCI experiment. In doing so the team will aim to answer questions regarding the very low reflectance of Ryugu, give insight into the regional heterogeneity of celestial bodies and, through comparison, assess the impact of solar wind on the surface.

Neue Kaiserära in Japan: Das Jahr-1-Problem - Golem.de

Wenn in Japan mit dem 1. Mai der Kaiser wechselt, ändert sich auch die Zeitrechnung: Die Kalender springen zurück auf das Jahr 1. Das beschäftigt nicht nur die Gesellschaft, sondern auch IT-Abteilungen. Es gibt Angst vor Bugs und Datenverlust.
Als ich davon das erste Mal gehört hatte, musst ich auch dran denken wie viel legacy software es wohl noch gibt, die de Äranamen fest im Code hat und x handgefrickelte Methoden zur Berechnung von Daten.

Reiwa: Japan prepares to enter new era of 'fortunate harmony' | World news | The Guardian

Japanese public bodies and companies now have a month to incorporate the new era’s name into their paperwork and computer systems before Naruhito ascends the Chrysanthemum throne, becoming the country’s 126th emperor. The new gengo will appear on everything from train tickets and software to official documents and calendars.
Poor software developers :(
I wonder how many bugs are there and how many times this era was hardcoded into the software...
