Posted in: Rengatei: venerable Ginza eaterie is birthplace of 'yoshoku' classics like 'tonkatsu' and 'omuraisu' See in context

Rengatei DID NOT invent these dishes. Both were introduced by the Portuguese in the 16th century. They are found in the writings of the Kyoto samurai.

The Jesuit missionaries made their fried pork cutlets and since potatoes were scarce here at the time they used rice instead to make their tortilla. A dish made with potatoes and eggs.

The court in Kyoto was served these dishes and their cooks learned the Portuguese techniques to make them.

Rengatei was simply the first Meiji Era restaurant to SERVE the dishes.

"The politicians don't claim they're safe, the boards that clear vaccines in each country do. The politicians follow the scientists lead."

Not in Japan. The Ministry of Health runs the National Committee of Innoculations and Vaccinations. Not a single doctor or scientist on the Committee. All of the members are Diet members. 6 from lower chamber and 6 from upper chamber. Their 2 advisers are the president of Tokyo University Medical College (he has a PhD in Education) and the president of Kyoto University (PhD not in medicine but engineering).

Posted in: Emperor feels grateful for strength of Japanese people over pandemic See in context

Here is an interesting passage from "The Imperial Dynasty" (1952) by Jacob Winters, I believe it is out of print.

"The title of Emperor owes to the fact that Hokkaido, Honshu, Shikoku, Kyushu, and Okinawa were distinct and separate kingdoms. For example, Kyushu was ruled from Hyuga (modern Miyazaki) and was known as Hayato Daiyo. The archipelago is the empire of the Emperor."

Posted in: What problems do you foresee with the roll-out of the coronavirus vaccine in Japan? See in context

Oh gee I don't know.

Perhaps the sharps shortage. It is being run by bureaucrats and pols and not medical people. Tokyo will get the bulk and leave the rest of the country waiting for months. All the while waiting for the gov't to get its act together, you will need a vac pass to travel out of Japan or enter.

I could go on, but you know it all living here.

Posted in: People suffering from hay fever may become infected with the coronavirus by using hands that had come in contact with the virus to rub the irritated areas of the eyes and nose, where areas of mucous membranes are located. See in context

As one who suffers from this let me offer the missing solutions.

Invest in a good portable air purifier that has changeable filters. Take it with you when changing rooms.

Wash your hair every day. This cleans away pollen.

If you are a man, shave very day. Facial hair attracts pollen.

Keep bedding clean, as well as clothes, curtains and towels.

Vacuum every day and a good dusting every other day.

If you can, avoid having pets.

That is what my doctors have always suggested.
