Discussion Week 12 - Friday the 23rd, Sunday the 25th, and Tuesday the 27th of June

- Friday the 23rd AND Tuesday the 27th of June -

                                   

- The Curse of Cash 

 

This is a topic suggested by a student!

 

Apparently there is a book, within which I'm guessing a study has been conducted in which it has been discovered that if societies were to drop the use of larger cash bills/notes, the amount of cash related crimes would drop. 

Also, in relation to this, we will also talk about the idea of the introduction of virtual currency as well as the reasons why paying by cash is so much more popular in Japan in comparison to paying by card. 

 

Let's talk about that.

- Restarting nuclear reactors  

 

As much as I know you all love nuclear power, it seems that some people don't, and despite their protests to prevent the restarting of 2 reactors in the Saga prefecture, it seems the court will go ahead and let them restart anyway.

Should we continue to allow reactors to restart?

Are there issues we might still be overlooking?

Can we make nuclear plants truly disaster proof?

Discussion Week 11 - Friday the 16th, Sunday the 18th, and Tuesday the 20th of June

- Friday the 16th AND Tuesday the 20th of June -

                                   

- House size regulations 

 

In Japan, it is possible to rent a room which is quite small, yet you could live in there if you tried.

In other countries, the size of rooms that seen as acceptable in Japan would be considered almost inhumane to rent out to people.

Even in New Zealand I can recall a case where some investor had intended to build an apartment building with so-called "shoebox apartments" but was denied, as the size of the apartments were too small.

Do you think house size regulations should change to increase the minimum size of houses/rooms in Japan?

Why do you think houses/rooms have been allowed to be rented out/sold at such small sizes?

Japan's empty house crisis shows that there is more than enough room in the country for bigger rooms, why do small rooms continue to be built?

 

Let's talk about that.

- My car, your problem  

 

In Japan, well, I've only lived in Kyoto, but  within Kyoto, I have come across an issue with Japanese drivers. While I'm sure there are foreigners driving in Japan, and Kyoto too, with the tiny minority of foreigners in Japan, the issue I have faced can be easily attributed to Japanese people.

As far as I understand, it is in the road rules (law) that one must stop for a person waiting at a pedestrian crossing. But my issue is this:

Why don't Japanese people stop at pedestrian crossings?

Why do Japanese people drive as if the world is the inside of their house (anything goes)?

 

I quite often (though not as often as the pedestrian crossing issue) notice another issue, when a  short stretch of road is open, quite often people will quite often speed up as much as they can, only to brake heavily to slow down at the end of the road, what causes this kind of behaviour? 

 

UPDATE! I FOUND THE ARTICLE!
