No Help for Trapped Two Boars in Japan?

No Help for Trapped Two Boars in Japan?

Source: wikipedia
Source: wikipedia

UPDATE

[28th Oct, 2018]

Here is the update. These two boars which were trapped were rescued by the city office. 

It has been still controversial because of the background as below.  

Background

Currently two boars fell by mistake into a reservoir (at this moment dry) in Kitakyushu, Fukuoka. There seems no way out. 

 

It seems quite possible to rescue them technically but the local regulation on "wild animal protection" which forbids human to intervene the life of wild animals. 

 

On 12 Oct, 2018 the local person asked the government to help them out but the request was rejected. The government says we just need to "look at" them.

 

We wonder if the government can not think the reservoir is basically what the human made which already interfered the life of animals and it may be reasonable to get them out from the artificial situation back to the nature? 

 

We can " understand " that the governments in Japan are careful and less risk taking. We are sure that the officials in the government themselves want to help the wild pigs.

 

Of course, boars are considered to be "pests" these days as they stroll into the residential areas and eat the crops and harvest damaging the farmers' business. This is we think the biggest reason why the government does not move a finger.

If the government helps them they will most likely face the big criticism from the locals who suffer from "boar issues".

Imagine if you live on your farming business and the wild boars eat all of your products and you suffer badly financially, you will hate the government if they spend the tax money (as you also paid) to help these pests which just by mistake fell into some hole.

 

Beside this, with not so much budget in the city government, it is hard to use it to save animals, when people are so ailing these days with not much social security. The rescue work can be also dangerous and tiring.

 

We think they need a good excuse to be out of their box!

What do you think we can do?

Now two boars fell and wait to die. Something must be done to help!! We also need to come up with some plan where humans and boars live together in peace...

 

Any good idea to help these animals?

All Cats on Cat Island Sterilized - Aoshima island

All Cats on Cat Island Sterilized - Aoshima island

All Cats on Cat Island Sterilized - Aoshima island in Ehime

Early last month (Sept, 2018) one of the twitter accounts of a local person on the island who takes many cat photos started talking about the sterilization of the cats. This way, we learnt about this.

 

All cats on Aoshima island are sterilized according to major media. The reason is that there are too few people on the island who can feed the cats.

 

There is a group which takes care of the cats on the island. The group is called "Aoshima Neko wo Mimamoru kai / a group which looks after Aoshima cats" which asked the Ozu city to support the all cat sterlization project in 2017. The city decided to put the project cost around 4000USD (the cost for the vets to stay and travel) in the city budget.

 

The reason behind all this is that there are too few people to take care of cats on that island.

 

How serious is the situation?

 

During WWII, many people escaped to the island from the main land. The island population hit the highest 655 people in 1960. There have not been enough job so many people left the island. On 1976 the island's only one primary school was shut down.

 

Early 2000 the cat population started to grow while the human population hit then new low, 50.

 

 

Just one two years ago, you only see 15 people( 4 fishermen and the rest retirees) on the island.

 

Today there are 9 people whose average age is 75 years old and more than 200 cats.

 

The number of cat is growing yet the number of resident on the island is decreasing even more.  Therefore, the village of the island made decision to neuter all cats. 

 

It has been mixed opinion about this. Some did not want, some wanted.

How sterilization carried out

On 2nd Oct, 2018 a foundation, called Dobutsu foundation, which offers fee sterilization to animals carried out this plan on this cat island. There 20 staff came to the island and set up as many as 130 cages. Each cage had some food for cats. When the cat enters the cage, the door of the cage closes.

 

On 3rd Oct, 3 veterinarians arrived at the island and carried out the tasks. 1 min to deal with one male cat and 15 mins, one female cat.  On this day 172 cats (female 75, male 97) were treated. 

 

On 4th Oct around 06:00AM, the treated cats were released after the staff checked their conditions.

Will Aoshima be non Cat island?

source: wikipedia aoshima cats
source: wikipedia

Now all cats do not reproduce due to this operation.

 

Normally the cat lives for 16-18 years. This means that there will be no cat on the Aoshima island after 18 years or so. (The oldest cat (called Creme Puff) in this world was 38 years and 3 days based on Guinness World Records.)

 

This is only possible 1) if nobody brings any cat to the island from now and 2) if really all cats are sterilized.

 

For 1), Aoshima has been so popular with so many tourists visiting and this has quite good business potential for the city "Ozu city" and the prefecture "Ehime" the island belongs to. The cat island brings a lot of money to many businesses esp. to the cities around it. In search of a new business opportunity to the community, these governments can change the direction and tries to make the island a cat island again. Who knows the government may bring a lot cats to the island again.

 

For 2) there is no 100% perfection in anything. It is announced that all cats were sterilized but it is possible that there are some survivors from this operation. The nature always finds a way.

 

This way, we think the Aoshima will continue to be a cat island.

Where is Aoshima cat island?

Aoshima in Ehime is one famous cat island in Japan, beside Tahirojima island.

 

Cat Island in Japan becoming popular. Onegai Kaeru team sees more people online talking about cat islands and also many online/offline news paper also featuring about it. We still do not see much practical information for those who want to visit the islands.

 

Thus we decided to provide some practical info on two cat islands, how to get these islands and what the cat island local says about the visitors. Also, there are several "cat islands" in Japan, other than these two. Please refer to our latest cat island list in Japan (updated from time to time).

Cat Island Aoshima

Aoshima - Island of Cats

Aoshima island ( 青島 ), Ozu-city, Ehime, is "cat island".

 

Located 13.5 km away from Nagahama port. 

 

Due to the internet hype the island becomes one of the popular destinations for the cat lovers.

 

In 1942 there were 889 people recorded. The island has 15 people( age between 50-80 years old) and more than 100 cats. There is neither inn, restaurant nor vending machine( as of Oct, 2013).

 

Some details about this island population:

  

There is no car or even a bike so no real threat to cat and there are many abandoned houses where cats can live peacefully.

 

1976 saw the last school close on this island.

No vending machine, no inn

Before you plan anything about this cat island in Ehime, you think about this. This island has NO inn, restaurant, vending machine. You find no bike no car.   (Note: there are 2 vending machines and some guesthouses on Tashirojima island in Miyagi)

So how to get Aoshima?

For traveler's tip...

How To Get Aoshima

For Aoshima, Ehime, (35 min) boat trip 2 times a day from Nagahama Port, Ehime pref. To get Nagahama port, get off at JR Iyonagahama station and walk.  

 

There are Nagahama ports in Shiga pref and Kagoshima pref also, be careful not to confuse.

 

Here (hard to access the website) is the time table of the boat to the island in Japanese. So we put the info from the website for you in English as below:

 

Timetable for Aoshima

Season   Nagahama port dep Aoshima port arrival Aoshima port dep Nagahama port arrival
All year 1st boat 08:00 08:35 08:45 09:20
2nd boat 14:30 15:05 16:15 16:50
- - - - - -

Price of the boat trip

One way: 680JPY (Adult=12 year old or older), 340JPY (Child=6 year old or older but younger than 12 year old)

 

Round Trip: 1360JPY (Adult=12 year old or older), 680JPY (Child=6 year old or older but younger than 12 year old)

 

If you have some check-in-baggage, it costs some hundreds JPY (i.e. 120JPY per one item(bag etc.) if lighter than 10kg, 250JPY per one item(bag etc.) if heavier than 10kg but lighter than 20kg, 390 JPY per one item (bag etc.) if heavier than 20kg but lighter than 30kg )

 

Valid as of Aug, 2018( subject to possible change) 

 

After the media reported about this island, it has become hard to get the ticket. We learnt that the ticket is sometimes sold out even 3 hours before the departure.  

 

The boats may be cancelled. For details, here is the telephone number of the Port +81 893-52-2700.

Can you take a fisherman boat?

Because the official boat above is very popular there are many tourists who could not take the boat even they reached the port. There are some people who pay the fisher men to let them board their boat to travel to Aoshima.

 

The local authority warms it is NOT legal to take a fisher man's boat to reach Aoshima. You need to take the boat above.

Tips for your trip

Bring something to eat and drink, umbrella and some plastic bags to bring back the garbage at least.

 

In case of Aoshima, there is neither shop nor vending machine. It is common that the ship is canceled due to the high tide etc. from November till March( autumn and winter). Thus, you need to be very positive-minded enough not to be disappointed to find your ship is canceled after you travel all the way in the cold morning.

 

If you stay in Matsuyama, not recommended to travel from there to the port in the morning. It is 1.5hour train trip to the port from Matsuyama, considering the risk of cancellation, good to stay in some place near the port( some list of the hotel and inn here) one day before the trip to the island and stay there for a couple of days to test your luck to get the ship. 

Message from Cat Island

Many of Onegai Kaeru team friends and thousands of tourists visiting these islands. What do local say about the visitor? Some are happy but some are not happy.

 

Aoshima Island shared their message for visitors:

 

These are 5+1 rules for the visitors for Aoshima

 

1. Feed the cats only at a designated area near the "community centre". Do not give food around the dock  (where people get on and off the ship)

2. Do not hang around the dock (where people get on and off the ship) so that you do not stop other logistics. ( means... once you get off the ship, just keep moving away from the dock area!)

3. Do not enter the private area ( local people's houses) without a prior permission

4. Please take the garbage back

5. Do not feed the cats too much, or the cats get sick (we do not want that, right?). If you brought too much food for cats, you can leave it in the cat food containers in front of the community center and at the waiting room for the ship.

( 6. There is a donation box in the waiting room for the ship. Your consideration (cash!) shall be used for the cat)

 

This is where visitors are allowed to feed the cats on Aoshima island.

Summary of Yuimetal official message

On the official website of BABYMETAL, there is a message from YUIMETAL.

 

Here is the summary:

 

"I am so sorry that I was absent for a long time which has caused many problems to many people. After thinking many times I decided to leave BABYMETAL. I (YuiMetal) has not been active since I could not join Hiroshima live in December last year. Even though I had so much support from the member and staff, I had to skip the BABYMETAL World Tour 2018 in Japan in this October and I will leave the band. I feel so sorry for those who have supported BABYMETAL. I decided to leave because of my health condition and I want to pursue my dream to stand on a stage as Yui Mizuno once again. BABYMETAL will be reborn with Su-Metal and Moametal. My time in BABYMETAL has been so precious. I felt so lucky about these days I spent (as BABYMETAL). Live where we became one smiling was so happy moment. I hope to see you all as Yui Mizuno one day. Thank you for 8 years' support."

Who is BABYMETAL? WHo writes songs?

Let us recap who BABYMETAL is?

 

They are a heavy metal style girl's group from Japan. It was established in 2010. All from one Japanese idol project called Sakura Gakuin of primary and Jr. high school girls.

BABYMETAL will start the world tour called BABYMETAL WORLD TOUR 2018 on 8th of May, 2018. At the same time, their new song "Distortion" was released.

Higher Risk of Blow Fish Poisoning Alert

Fugu cooking licence differs from each prefecture. In some prefectures, you need to take lessons and tests and in some you only need lessons. This causes the knowledge level of each licensed Fugu cook differ. Today you can not use your licence from your prefecture in other. For example, if you try to get a Fugu cooking licence in Yamaguchi prefecture, you need to take lessons and then also take the tests to show you can differentiate the poison locations of each Fugu as well as your Fugu processing skill. But you try to get a licence in Okayama, you do not need to take any test. 

 

There has been a strong voice from the fugu industry to have a unified fugu cooking licence.

not only for Japan but WorldwiDe issue!

This news should not treated as a Japan only news. The blow fishes are mixing here and there all over the world.  (We also think any other plants/animals which have some poisonous parts can also have the same problem as this mixed Fugu issue. ) The world needs to be more aware of the new type of risk in our food! We still want to eat blow fish with no worry.

 

There should be a world wide system to make sure that we are not eating something lethal!

Higher Risk of Blow Fish Poisoning Alert

Is this fugu really the one as you think? Source : wikipedia

TASTy yet dangerous Fugu fish

Ever tried to eat Fugu? Fugu is a blow fish which is considered to be one of the most expensive and tasty foods in Japan.

 

We also love this fish. It looks cute and also tasty. We can not really afford this fish every day. If you go to some restaurant to eat a proper Fugu fish, it may be around 100USD or more per person.

 

The tricky part with this fish is that it has poison in its body. This poisiton is lethal. It makes more difficult to cook this fish because each type has poison in different parts of body.

Fugu cooking need licence

This is why a cook needs a special Fugu cooking licence to cook. To get the Fugu cooking licence, the cook needs to learn about the positions of the poisons of each type of Fugu and how to remove and cook. ( This also increases the cost of cooking.) 

 

After the cook took away the poisonous part(s), she/he must put them into a special garbage box with a lock so that no mistake happens. Under the current situation, we still see some people dying of the Fugu poisons (mistakes happen, you know...).

Climate change create new type fugu!

 

Today we heard of a scary news. There is higher risk of blow fish poisoning these days. This is because due to the changing climate, some blow fishes move to the area where they did not live and get mixed with the local blow fish which have always been there. This creates a mixed blow fish which has poisonous part where the cook with a licence has not learnt. The cook with a Fugu cooking licence is supposed to not cook a Fugu whose type is unknown. Yet, there seems a blow fish which looks exactly like one type of Fugu yet actually mixed and has positions in different parts! This means that there is a risk that even a licensed cook can not get rid of the poison correctly.

Best Autumn Leaves -KOYO - Locations in Japan

Great season in Japan is autumn. Agree? Source: wikipedia
Great season in Japan is autumn. Agree? Source: wikipedia

Are you visiting Japan in the autumn season e.g. late Oct, Nov, early Dec?

 

If asked which is the best season to visit Japan, we say autumn. It is because the season is not as hot as summer and not as cold as winter.

 

The spring is another great time with cherry  blossoms but some may have the pollen allergy (like us) so it may be necessary to carry tissue paper around to blow noses..

 

In autumn, there is no big allergy problem. And you see what Japanese call "Koyo / the red leaves" where many type of trees change its color to red, yellow and brown to make the beautiful scenery here and there.

 

There are many beautiful places and here we try to share with you some locations not too well known.

1. Hachimantai in Iwate

2. Senjojiki Cirque in Nagano

3. Keisokuji Temple in Shiga

4. Tsutanuma in Aomori

Red leaves reflected in the surface of the pond. You can only enjoy the view probably on the limited timings. The color of the leaves should be bright enough, the sky needs to be clear and there should not be wind to make the water surface a mirror.

 

You check the weather report well to make sure you capture the rare sight.

5. Showakinen Koen in Tokyo

6. Omocha no Okoku in Gunma

7. Senjogahara in Tochigi

8. Hitachi Kaihin Koen in Ibaragi

9. Jozankei in Hokkaido

Jozankei in Sapporo, Hokkaido

10. Shichimenso in Saga

タイで絶対はずせない展示会・見本市の紹介です。

タイで絶対に出展すべき展示会・見本市

Booking.com
タイの展示会リスト All right reserved Onegai Kaeru
タイの展示会リスト All right reserved Onegai Kaeru

世界を代表する展示会影響力リスト中国の国際展示会リストベトナム展示会リストが好評を得ていますが、一方で、東南アジアの巨大経済国、タイの展示会情報のリクエストが多く寄せられています。

 

ここ数年のトレンドとして、自動車関連、美容・化粧品関連、医療系の展示会が新規に開始及び規模を拡大してきています。

 

自社製品をタイ、アジアで売りたい。タイ、アジアの旅行会社とタイアップして、インバウンドを増やしたい。ブランドを知ってもらいたい。OEM先を探している。製品を仕入れたい。

 

タイで絶対にはずせない・はずしたくない、タイを代表する主要展示会・見本市を紹介します。

 

展示場面積は毎年変わっており、影響力は左右しますが、この展示会リストに入っている展示会に出展すれば、タイ市場を狙えることは確実といえそうです。

 

コストも時間もかかる展示会・見本市、タイ展示会の中でも影響力の高いところへ出展するのが効果的です。

 

展示会・見本市の業界では、世界的には長年ドイツが中心でありますが、近年では東南アジアの展示会も中国とならび台頭してきています。

 

<<タイの展示会、見本市なら弊社に。弊社はブース設計、設営、運営をしてきました。また、販促品、POP、SPの企画・制作も行っております。>>

タイ展示会・見本市の費用感

タイの展示会・見本市の費用感を紹介します。

 

例えば、Food Pack Asiaですが、ブースなしの出展スペースは最低18㎡からで、平方メートルあたり300USDですので、ベトナムのVietnam Expoの270USDと比べ、30USD割高です。簡単なブーススタンド(最小18㎡)で、5400USDとなります。

 

基本ブースプランですと、平方メートルあたり340USDとなり、最小9㎡で、3060USDとなります。

 

世界一のハイテク展示会であるドイツのCeBITで、主催者側の提供してくれるブースは「基本プラン」で5626EUR以上「いいかんじプラン」で6832EUR以上「プレミアムプラン」で10166EUR以上の三つです(2017年)。これらはすべて12㎡までのブースの値段で、それ以上は値段が上がります。これらはブース(出展費用(1㎡あたり242EUR)、電気代、コーヒー紅茶のケータリング含む。ネット回線や駐車場料金は、基本プランには含まれず)の値段です。日本円で80万円から130万円ほどになります。

 

世界的なCeBITと比較するのもあれですが、タイへの渡航費の安さもあり、タイでの出展費用は半分のイメージです。

タイを代表する展示会・見本市

東南アジアの一大市場として、そして、一大生産拠点として、長らくトップに君臨するのがタイです。

 

人件費も比較的高い国でありますが、識字率もスキルも高いです。

 

市場としてのタイとして存在感が高まっている中、展示面積でも知名度でも欧州勢に並び中国の展示会が有力ですが、東南アジアではタイへの関心が高まり、現地での展示会の重要性が増しております。

 

タイ進出の試金石になるだけでなく、仕入れ先、OEM先を探す、海外進出の基本的な一歩と位置付けられています。

 

日本の展示場ですと、東京ビックサイトが最も大きく約80000㎡で、幕張メッセが約70000㎡ですので、世界ランキングでは、70位近くに位置します。

 

有楽町の東京国際フォーラムは、その最も大きな展示スペースのホールEで、5000㎡となっています。世界1位のドイツの建設の展示会・見本市のBaumaの100分の1以下となります。

 

ビッグサイトの展示会でも1日がかりで回りますが、海外の展示会の場合は、言葉が不慣れだったり、海外に来て気持ちが興奮してしまい、無駄な時間をすごしがちですので、日本のそれ以上に効率よく回ることになります。

 

タイのビジネスで気をつける基本項目のおさらいと、直接現地企業にアクセスできるタイの代表的な展示会についてみていきましょう。

タイの展示会で成功するコツ・注意すべきこと

では、タイのビジネスで気をつける基本項目のおさらいしてみましょう。

 

タイの方々も国際派も多く、外国人のタイ文化への無知に対し、寛容に振舞ってくれる方もいるでしょう。

 

また、タイの展示会で、必ず重要な場面があるとは言えませんが、頭に絶対に入れておき、適切な場で、適切に振舞えることが絶対に必要です。

タイの国王・国に敬意を

どこの国でも、その国について敬意を払うことは当たり前のことですが、特に、タイでは、タイ国王は国民にとってとても大切な存在です。国王についての否定的な話題や意見は絶対に慎んでください。

 

仏教の国です。日本より尊敬の度合いは高いように感じます。仏教の批判や、お坊さんへの不敬もダメです。

ドレスコード・年齢

タイでは、ドレスコードは、スーツが基本です。サンダル履きは展示会の入場を断られます。また、基本的に年齢制限は15歳以下は入場ができません。

 

では、サンダル会社さんはどうなるんでしょうか?気になる方は、まず、イベント主催者に問い合わせることが必要でしょう。

右手を使う

もの(名刺)などを差し出すときは、右手で差し出すよう心がけましょう。

 

また、頭は神聖なもので、足は不浄と考えられ、だれかの頭の上を通して物を渡す、足でなにかを指すなどはいけません。

間接表現を心がける

タイでもメンツは重要であり、直接的に相手を否定するような表現は慎んでください。否定しなければならない場合も、間接的にしましょう。日本人としては、これは得意な分野ともいえます。

タイの電圧

タイの電圧は230V(50Hz)で日本の100Vとは異なります。日本で利用するプラグ型(タイプA)がよく使われますが、それ以外のプラグもあります。

 

電化製品の見本など、変圧器とタイの向けの変換プラグを持参するよう、ご注意ください。

その他

共産圏ではありませんが、新興国として、中国で展示会をする場合の注意事項が参考になりますので、ご参照ください。

Why Ticket Re-seller Always Get Concert ticket in Japan?

Why Ticket Re-seller Always Get Concert ticket in Japan?

Why so hard for you to buy ticket in Japan? how reseller get ticket??

It is hard to win the ticket in Japan. Some hard-to-get tickets are called "platinum" ticket.

 

Many re-sellers get the tickets and put on the resale market for 200 - 700% or even higher price of the original price. Platinum tickets are categorized for the ticket on the market at more or less from 500%- 700% or higher range of the original price. It is simply crazy.

 

There are many concerts in April hard to get! All right reserved Onegai kaeru

How RE-SELLER get tickets?

Well, how do the resellers get the tickets? The reseller never tells you. It is a secret of them.

Yet, what we are aware of is that the reseller for sure is the fanclub member (to be able to apply for a special deal) and the reseller does it as a "profession".

 

By the "profession", we mean that the reseller hires many other people. The reseller organizes its own people to be so many fanclubs and let them apply. 

It is not strange that one reseller has 10-20 memberships for one fanclub. This simply means 10-20 times as probable to win the ticket. 

 

For many famous bands/singers, even a normal person (who is not a reseller) has 2-3 memberships. So they increase the chance of winning. If you have one single fanclub membership, still the chance is quite small for big concerts of big celebrity.

 

Some customers of ours are not even the member of the fanclub. Then the winning chance shall be small for the normal way (well our customers via our service win a lot for some reasons. But we think that it is not that we help them but it is only a matter of luck of the custmers). 

 

This is why you can not get the ticket easily. To be honest, if you are not the fanclub member, your chance is basically quite low.  Most of the good tickets are gone for the fanclub members before you can apply. [This is why you need to be a fanclub member!]

 

How could you win the war against the reseller who has 10 or more fanclub memberships to the same singer, if you do not even have one single fanclub membership.

 

 

This is why you need to join the fanclub in the first place with our proxy service. 

online Reseller face penality in Japan?

In 2018 May, the major ticket resale platform Ticket Camp was shut down. One of these companies inflated the ticket price.

 

The Japanese government announced to enact a new law on ticket reselling. The government is mainly worried about the resale of the Olympic ticket for 2020 Tokyo games.

 

It will be "some" good countermeasure for the reseller problem in Japan. The penalty shall be 1 year prison sentence or 1mil JPY or less. For details, you can find here.

Not Fanclub member but need ticket?

Many ask us to help getting concert ticket without fanclub membership. Our recommendation is that if you are not a member of your favorite one, BE MEMBER NOW.

 

There are only goodies becoming a member. There are more and more ID check etc. in Japan for the resale ticket and you have a risk of being rejected at the concert gate. We do not wish you take this risk. You should buy the ticket in a proper way.

Contact us!

We always ask our customers to be fast to contact us. We can not deal with a super urgent case like..." we need you to go to apply physically at some venue for this ticket and the deadline is in 10 hours ". 

 

Yes, we make impossible possible but the cost shall be quite high.

 

Ideally contact us 2 week - 1 month before the deadline at least.

What is Sumachike by ePlus, tixeebox/ Smartphone Ticket system in Japan?

What is Sumachike by ePlus, tixeebox/ Smartphone Ticket system in Japan?

There are many concerts in April hard to get! All right reserved Onegai kaeru

What is Sumachike by ePlus, tixeebox/ Smartphone Ticket system in Japan?

Recently we see the rapid increase of request for smartphone ticket in Japan.

traditional ticket system and resale prob

" Traditionally in Japan" you apply to win the ticket by telephone or website or a letter, and if you win, you pay online/offline and get the physical paper ticket with seat number printed.

 

This has increased the resale market. Many resalers joined the fanclub as huge group and apply to win the lottery. Then they sell the tickets at extremely high price. 

 

This has been big headache for the event organizers and the business related to the concert.

Sumachike and tixeebox are born

To tackle down the resale problem, The ticket sale platform ePlus released Sumachike and Live styles released tixeebox. 

Here is how it works

1. you apply (chusen - lottery) only with the smartphone which must be a Japanese phone with the valid tel. Japanese number. The application page is a normal website but you can only view and press certain buttons on the smartphone and you register your tel. no. For this, you need a Japanese phone with the valid number.

 

2. you get the result on your phone. In fact you can also check on your PC. 

 

3. Once you win the ticket,you can download the special app to your phone. 

 

4. On the concert day, you get some SMS message with a QR code to your phone. 

Note: All this time you shall not know the seat location. 

You use this QR code to enter the venue and this is only the moment when you know the seat location. 

Why?

Why there are more smartphone tickets in Japan today?

 

This measure is in place to curve down the reseller problem. 

 

This way, if one wants to resell the ticket, the person needs to give the SIM card with the smartphone contract subscription and maybe the smartphone itself with the SIM in it because even if you have a SIM card which won the ticket, there is a risk of non-compatibility with your smartphone.

 

We support

We totally support this move of industry.

 

 

If you need to do this smartphone ticket application, we can help you but you need to buy a Japanese smartphone and carrier plan.

 

We believe in transparency and mutual trust. So we are honest with you about the cost. Please be aware that this will not be so cheap. This is a lot just to apply. 

 

We physically need to send someone to a mobile phone shop to sign in to have the SIM card with the valid Japanese number.

 

In Japan, there is a penalty when we cancel the contract in a certain number of month (usually, we need to go beyond a 6 month period). This increases the cost for you.

 

This shall be the breach of contract if we also give this SIM card to a third party so we need to keep the SIM back after you use it.

 

So far this is the cost only to apply to win the ticket and you often do not win!

 

Then we need to have a smartphone which is compatible with the SIM card. Then we prepare a smartphone as well.

 

With this complicating procedure, from time to time, we need to ask for some deposits for the SIM and smartphone. 

 

We understand that this market moves to make the ticket application this complicating and super high cost, this will stop the resale people as well as with the ticket exchange place run by the official live organizer.  We see all these good moves!! 

if you want to learn the basics how to buy concert / event ticket in Japan...

We explained how to buy Concert ticket in Japan in this article. You can learn how the basic rule to get a concert ticket.

 

Basically there are two types of tickets usually in Japan.

 

1) Preorder ticket ("Senko ticket")

a. Fast come fast serve style order ("Senchaku")

b. Lottery style order ("Chusen")

AND

2) Normal ticket ("Ippan ticket")

 

A simple rule is that 2) Normal ticket is hard to get, sometimes impossible. 

Usually 1) Preorder ticket comes before the 2) Normal ticket.

 

Preorder does not mean you can definately get it. There are two types of a preorder ticket: a. Fast come fast serve style order and b. Lottery style order.

 

a. Fast come fast serve style order means you apply to buy by website, tel. etc. The faster you can reach the ticket office, the more securely you can get the ticket. The problem is that many resellers clog the ticket website and once you can reach the website to buy, the ticket is all sold out.

We supported many clients with this. It is quite tough to beat the resellers who organize the big team.  Esp. if  the order is only by telephone, you can give up already (!). 

 

b. Lottery style order means you apply by website etc. during a certain period of time. It does not matter you apply early or late, the chance of winning the right to buy does not change. To reduce the reseller's problem, we see this style more.

How to increase your chance?

Always failing to buy the ticket in Japan? Well, honestly there is no 100% guaranteed way to get a ticket. But there are some ways you can increase your chance to win the right to buy the ticket.

 

1. if the artist has a fanclub, join it. 

2. if the artist has a membership for their official website, join it.

3. if the ticket to win the right is enclosed in an item such as music CD, buy several (if allowed under the regulation of the artist) and apply several times.

4. Be a premium member of major ticket platforms such as Lawson ticket or Ticket Pia.

5. Join a free member of e-Plus

 

To be able to buy a ticket safely, "fanclub" plays an important role. Simply put, if you are a member of fanclub of the favorite band or so, you have a better access for the ticket.

 

<<Our Fanclub proxy support comes into quite useful for you>>

How ticketing works normally?

The usual process to buy ticket in Japan is the follow:

 

A. Preorder (lottery style) only for fanclub member starts. 

B. Preorder from a major ticket platform starts

and

C. Normal ticket sales start.

 

Based on our observation, there are many popular concerts which just do A.

Ticket hard to buy in Japan

Which concert is the hardest to go in Japan? There are some statistics about the amount of resale ticket circulated in Japan. This implies the demand is high for such a concert.

 

1) Arashi

2) Tohoshinki (Korean band)

3) SMAP (separated in 2017)

4) EXILE TRIBE

5) Kan Jani 8

6) Kis-My-Ft2

7) BIGBANG (Korean band)

8) Masaharu Fukuyama

9) Sandaime J Soul Brothers

10) Hey! Say! JUMP

11) EXO (Korean band)

12) Momoiro Clover Z

13) Dreams Come True

14) Kazumasa Oda

15) Namie Amuro ( to retire in 2018)

16 ) Kat-Tun

 

In these years we also noticed the growing popularity for anime voice actors/singers concerts such as Wake Up, Girls!, Idol M@ster.

 

There are many professional resellers which make it hard for real fans to get ticket. It is normal to see the resale ticket price 200% - 700% of its original price. Crazy... It is not good situation. We hope there shall be a strong regulation on resale business.

There have been big resale markets even for foreign big bands. The market needs to do more about the problem.

Many special Concert for fanclub

A recent trend is that the artists offer special lives only for a certain group of people.

 

For example,  there are seats only available for fanclub members, or even a fanclub only concert takes place. In some case, you need to buy a CD which has a serial number only with which you can apply to win the right to buy a ticket.

 

Onegai Kaeru team can support many of these cases.

 

Just contact us! When you contact us, please state a much details as possible about your request. your name, what/on which date concert you want to go, your budget, birthday.

We always ask our customers to be fast to contact. We can not deal with a super urgent case like..." we need you to go to apply physically at some venue for this ticket and the deadline is in 10 hours ".

 

Yes, we make impossible possible but the cost shall be quite high.

 

Ideally talk to us 2 weeks - 1 month in advance at least.

Why so hard for you to buy ticket in Japan? how reseller get ticket??

Many of our customers ask us to buy tickets for them. We certainly help.

 

Yet, it is not rare that customers can not win the rights to buy. While, many resellers get the tickets and put on the resale market for 200 - 700% or even higher price of the original price.

 

Well, how do the resellers get the tickets? The reseller never tells you. It is a secret of them.

Yet, what we are aware of is that the reseller for sure is the fanclub member (to be able to apply for a special deal) and the reseller does it as a "profession".

 

By the "profession", we mean that the reseller hires many other people (not just 2 -3 but 10 or more!) to be fanclub members of many bands and let them apply to increase the chance of winning.

 

Some customers of ours are not even the member of the fanclub.

This is why you can not get the ticket easily. To be honest, if you are not the fanclub member, your chance is basically quite low.  Most of the good tickets are gone for the fanclub members before you can apply. 

 

How could you win the war against the reseller who has 10 or more fanclub memberships to the same singer, if you do not even have one single fanclub membership.

 

This is why you need to join the fanclub in the first place with our proxy service.

Many ask us to help getting concert ticket without fanclub membership. Our recommendation is that if you are not a member of your favorite one, BE MEMBER NOW.

Sakura was born in Shizuoka pref on 8th May, 1965.

 

In 1984 she studied in a college. During her study, she debuted with Shueisha. After the college she went to Tokyo to join a publisher call Gyosei/ぎょうせい. She often fell asleep on the job. Her boss asked her to choose between her company job or mangaka. Just after 2 months she joined the company, she left.

 

She quit the company late May, 1986 and started drawing the Chibi Maruko chan in August in the same year.

 

Chibi Maruko chan is one of the first manga comics we bought when we were little. It was the time when Chibi Maruko chan was on TV and we wanted to buy the comics. We collected some allowance from parents and bought the book..

 

On 15 August, 2018 Ms. Momoko Sakura passed away due to the breast cancer. She was survived by her husband and one son.

Tattoo in Japan: Almost 60% of the venue with Public Bath Ban Tattoo But More Change to Come for 2020!

Tattoo in Japan: Almost 60% of the venue with Public Bath Ban Tattoo But More Change to Come for 2020!

Do you have tattoo and plan to visit Japan? You may need to read this to have a happy stay in Japan because your innocent tattoo may bring you some trouble... 


You google "tattoo and Japan", you get so many articles about the topic. Why?! 


We explain why you can not go into a public bath/swimming pool or gym if you have tattoo in Japan. 


Here is the latest news about it.

New Finding by Travel Agency in Japan

Japan Tourism Agency published a research asking 452 hotels, 3116 onsen spa, swimming pools etc. about tattoo rule (21 Oct 2015).

 

The result was interesting and also insightful.

 

Finding 1: 55.9% of them answered that they prohibit tattoo in their facilities. The reasons are 1) to keep the peace/moral, 2) industry rule, 3) instruction from the local office and police.

30% has no ban, 12.9% allows with condition.

The reason 3) tells how true the notion in Japan that tattoo means mafia is realistic...

 

Finding 2: 78.3% of them answered there was no case of trouble when one with tattoo take bath.

 

Finding 3: 47.2% of them answered the customers complain when they see someone with tattoo.

2019 and 2020 change

The tattoo rule will change certainly. Two reasons : Rugby World Cup and 2020 Olympic in Tokyo. 

 

For these games, Japan expects to see more tourists from overseas with tattoo. We already started seeing several public baths start accepting people with tattoo.

 

Another big reason we see is that with the shrinking population, many businesses depend on foreign tourists. Many tourists with tattoo choose their stay and destination based on the tattoo rules. Many check our  tattoo OK list before they plan trip to Japan. Some in Japan think only many westerners bear tattoos but in fact many of our Asian friends also have tattoo. If the venue bans the tattoo, they lose significant number of customers!!

 

Up to today the tattoo people can only go to the places with private baths.

Under the current air, we see more and more places accept tattoo people.

 

Yamato no Yu

This public bath has always welcomed tattoo since its opening. The venue is in Narita.

 

Anshin Oyado

Anshin Oyado capsule hotel (4 facilities in Tokyo and one in Shijo, Kyoto except for the one in Shinbashi) allows one with "design" tattoo. This hotel is only for men.

 

Ofuro Cafe Utatane

Interesting concept with this place where yoi can bring your own book into bath and read it (at your own cost!).

If you can conceal it with the 12.8cm x 18.2 cm sticker, you can take bath. You can buy it yourself or you buy at the venue which is 200JPY. The website says if the sticker cannot conceal it, you will not be allowed to enter.

New trend with "fake" tattoo in Japan

Even though tattoo has carried a "certain meaning" in Japanese society ( and you may understand why people, esp. eldery ones, can not help viewing negatively tattoo bearers), we see more and more young people see tattoo as a fashion.


In the past 5 years especially in Harajuku fashion, tattoo print tights were booming like crazy! 


Those almost invisible tights with just a little print at the ankle, looking like a real tattoo, or for the people who want more - an all over print - are the must have items this year.

 

I believe everything started with a tiny shop in Tokyo's Harajuku district, whose owner designed tights himself: 

AVANTGARDE (アバンギャルド, it is unfortunately closed down) 

 

Therefore for these designer pieces the price is a little higher (approx. 1,9003,500 JPY per item) but they are made of wonderful quality and really unique! Here is a tiny overview from the shop.

 

Does your country also have a similar good? Do you have the one?

Some of our staf owned one pair of the Mickey Mouse comic print as seen above!

 

Since printed tights got really popular recently, you can find them basically all over Harajuku and Shibuya - from different manufacturers for a smaller price.

 

We really like them since they bring so many fresh new ideas and patterns into the fashion world! Some of these items are still on the market. 

 

Why don't you grab a pair too and spice up your autumn legs?

She goes around and asks for secret information. If one agrees, she asks the person to write the secret on the paper and fold and put the paper into concrete.

 

She has around 100 "secrets". The information provider decides freely how much she could sell this secrets. Most of them are from 500JPY-5000JPY. The most expensive one is 30million JPY.

 

People often buy the secrets around 500JPY.

 

Ms. Kimura explains she started this business once after she got some secret. Once she had it, she started thinking if she could collect secrets of others.

Japan Voice Actor News: Gintama Ends 15 year History

Gintama legend

Last night we were at a McDonald and there was the advertisements of Gintama for its new real life movie "Gintama 2" and DVD.

 

The character was joking that Gintama has been one of the most popular mangas in Weekly Jump yet not no. 1 but around no. 6.

 

That time, we never thought of this news... This morning we were shocked to hear this news. 

 

Samurai manga Gintama started in December, 2003. The 74 Manga editions so far. Its circulation is more than 55,000,000! The TV animation also started since April 2006.

 

It was in the final season from July, 2016.

 

Gintama ends on 15th Of September, 2018.

Hideaki Sorachi

The 15 year old popular manga ends, announced the creator Hideaki Sorachi on 20th August, 2018.

 

Hideaki was born in Hokkaido on 25 May, 1979. He decided to be a manga creator after he saw the last scene of the Ghibli Laputa the Castle in the Sky. His most favorite Ghibli movie is "Kiki's delivery". 

 

He loved Dragon Ball and Slam dunk. His inspiration for his work came rather a different area. It is a world of comedy. His favorite comedian is "DownTown".

 

Did you know?

Did you know his editors in Weekly Magazine thought his manga could not last long at first..? Against the prediction his manga became so popular.

Comiket in Tokyo, Japan in 2019 will be 4 days!

Comiket in Tokyo, Japan in 2019 will be 4 days!

Booking.com
All rights reserved by onegai kaeru
All rights reserved by onegai kaeru

Comiket in 2019

Comiket in 2019 will take place on 9-12 August and 28-31 December. 4 days per event.

 

This is the first time that the event lasts for 4 days. 

 

The size of the event area shall be actually smaller, around 75% of the current size. This is because the Tokyo Big Sight use will be restricted due to the Tokyo Olympic preparation.

 

We will update you about 2020 Comket too once the information available!

Entry fee for all visitors

Unlike the Comike till now where the visitors did not need to pay, the 2019 Comike "most likely" shall charge entry fee. You pay the fee or buy the entry, for which you get a wrist band, or you buy the catalog.

 

The organizer says the expensive will go up because of the 4 day event and smaller event space which results in the less income from advertisement.

What is Comike? Big dojinshi fair in the world

Comiket is the biggest Dojinshi ("同人誌" / self-published works by animator/comic artist) convention in the world since 1975 (21 Dec). 

 

We call it "Komike" in Japan. 

This is one good channel to promote yourself as a Manga-ka or Cartoonist in Japan.

 

When to take place and for how many days?

 

2019 seems a special event with 4 days.

 

Usually it takes place at Tokyo Big Sight two times a year ("Summer Comiket" in mid August of every year e.g. 10-12AUG and "Winter Comiket" around the end of every year e.g. 29DEC- 1JAN).

 

Besides this, there is Comiket Special which takes place every 5 year.

 

<<How to get a job as Manga-ka or catoonist in Japan?>>

How much to enter Comiket in Tokyo?

As of 2018 it is free to enter the Comike.

What you need to be careful

Heat

For Summer Comike, you take care of yourself for the heat. IT was reported every day there were more than 100 people taken to the care center with possible heat stroke. Bring some cap, enough drink.

We heard of some complaints from the people lining up in the morning outside of the venue that there were no drink vendors who could go around so that you could buy drink from where you lined up. There are many vending machines but not practical when you need to line up with several thousands of people.

 

 

Theft ( including Pickpocket) 

There was a report of arrest for pickpocket. If you attended the Comike once, you know the situation is like 8AM in Yamanote line on weekday. So many people. You keep your belongings where nobody can reach easily. 

 

The photos of the cosplayers are here!

What time should you go the venue? Opening hour

The Comket opens from 10:00AM till 17:00 for the 1st and 2nd day and 10:00AM-16:00 for the 3rd day. For 2019, there will be the 4th day. The opening hour should be more or less the same.

(Subject to a possible change in the future. Check the official website )

 

still Morning dash?

Although not allowed, it is sort of tradition that the visitors rush out of the station gate from the first train which reaches at Rinkai line Kokusai Tenjijo station ( りんかい線国際展示場駅 ).

 

 

It is called " Shihatsu Dash / 始発ダッシュ or the first train dash ".

 

Well, we can only say do you run or you fall! Stay safe ;)

Location and How to get there?

The location is at Tokyo Big Sight, a convention hall in Tokyo. In 2019, the venue is a bit smaller than normal.

 

There shall be 3 venues:

West Exhibition Hall

South Exhibition Hall

Aomi Exhibition Hall which is 1.5km away from the other halls.

 

You need to take JR Shinjuku Rinkai line or Yurikamome line from JR Shinbashi station. 

 

You get off at Kokusai Tenjijo station ( りんかい線国際展示場駅 ) of Rinkai line or Kokusai Tenjijo Seimon station (国際展示場正門駅) of Yurikamome line.

Comiket policy

The policy of Comiket is that all participants are equal.

Seller - circle

You need to be selected to be the seller. If selected to be a seller, you need to pay. The normal seller space is a half of a table and two chairs. The seller at the Comiket is called "circle". 

 

The application starts for the next convention around the time of Comiket. That means if you want to be a seller at the next convention, you need to apply around 6 months in advance.

 

If you wish to be a seller, you need to apply by post or email. Many applications fail because of just not enough or wrong information in the application format. You make sure you fill in correctly!

 

More than 36000 circles attend usually

 

Seller can enter at 07:00AM

This is how it is like in Comiket source: wikipedia
This is how it is like in Comiket source: wikipedia

Visitor

Is it free to visit the market?

"Yes!"

Unlike many Dojinshi convention, you do not need to buy the catalog (as an entry ticket) to visit the market.

 

More than 500000 visitors usually. In 2018 summer there were more than 53000 visitors.

 

Visitor can line up from 04:30AM and enter at 10:00AM (in fact you are NOT allowed to line up before 04:30AM but many lineup from the day before)

Cosplayer

If you want to do a cosplay at the Comiket, you need to apply in advance.

 

Now the not excessive exposure rules are in use. You should not show too much skin!

careful about several rules at Comiket!!

You must be careful about several rules in Comiket. The similar rules apply also to many Dojinshi Conventions in Japan.

 

 

If you want to take a photo/video of someone in the Comiket, unless you blur the person's face, you are not allowed to publish it on your SNS or any sort. If you want to publish, you need to identify yourself with your name and your contact information, the purpose/media details. The organiser is strict with the rules. The penalty could be the eviction from the Comiket.

バリ国際空港でだまされないために パート2(インドネシア)

バリ国際空港でだまされないために(インドネシア)ウーバーや格安バスについて 2ページ目

Bali is beautiful  All right reserved Onegai Kaeru 2016
Bali is beautiful All right reserved Onegai Kaeru 2016

では、ウーバーや格安バスのクラクラバスはどうでしょうか?以下簡単に説明してみました!

オプション2

ウーバーを使う。これはタクシーよりも安心で安いかもしれません。ウーバーについてはこちらを。自分はバリでは使ったことがないですが、スマホ上で事前に値段を決めてクレジットカードで決済できるので便利です。

 

ただし、このオプションは携帯に海外SIMをいれ、常にネット環境を整えてないと、ドライバーとの待ち合わせ、連絡で問題が起こります。

オプション3

クラクラバス(公共のバス)を利用。Rp.20,000からです。値段的にはウーバーよりも安いのではないかと思います。バリ国際空港の近くにバス停がないので、Kutaまでと同じ距離ほどありますので1時間ほどあるくか、空港を歩いて出て、ブルーバードでバスターミナルまで行き、そこから目的地にバスで出発。時刻表と、自分の宿泊地がバス停の近くにあるかどうかを調べてください。バスのページは日本語でも出ています。日本人の方が社長さんで、日本JTB系列の会社のようです。

 

2018年4月からルート変更(料金変更もありました!)があり、いくつかのルートではDFSでの乗換えが不要になりました!公式ページをチェックしてください。

Three types of Kurakurabus Source: official website
Three types of Kurakurabus Source: official website

クラクラバスの種類は3種類で、社内にはコンセントもついてます。

クラクラバスのバスターミナルの場所

勘違いされる方が多いのですが、クラクラバスのバスターミナルは空港からは徒歩で1時間くらいです。下に地図を表示しました。

(当たり前ですが、)空港のタクシーの方々はクラクラバスを嫌っているようで、クラクラバスについては何も教えてくれません。

 

「クラクラバスのことは知らない」「クラクラバスは存在しない」という一点張りです。これは空港のホテルやインフォメーションでも同じですから皆さん結託されているようです(?)。

 

タクシー運転手は目の敵にしているようですが、他の職員は、クラクラバスはマイナーな乗り物なので、ただ単に本当に知らないというのが本当の事情でしょう。

オプション4

空港から歩くのがいやな方は、宿泊のホテルが用意する空港からのピックアップの利用がお勧めです。4つ星、5つ星のホテルにご宿泊の場合は、追加料金オプションなりでホテルはほぼ必ず用意しています。

 

もちろんホテルですから、かなりのボッタくり料金で設定されています。

 

ただし、ある程度のホテルならきれいな車の中で、冷たいいい香りのするお絞りが出てくる、ウェルカムドリンクがでてくるなどあり、「だまされた感」はありませんので、そちらをお勧めします。

 

他のお客様が同乗されていなければ、途中でいい景色やコンビニがあれば停車してくれます。また、ホテルの宿泊費に込みの場合もありますので、これは事前に絶対にチェックしたほうが良いでしょう。

 

慣れてきた帰りはホテルからブルーバードタクシーでいいのではないでしょうか。

 

<<東南アジアへの進出支援なら弊社におまかせ>>

最後に

ぼったくられたと思ったら、タクシー会社に連絡をいれましょう。タクシー会社の名前・連絡先、タクシードライバーの名前、IDなどは全て携帯で写真を撮る(嫌味にならないように風景を撮っている振りをするなど)などしておくのが無難でしょう。

 

ちなみに、ぼったくりは東南アジアやその他の地域の新興国ではあたり前で、低賃金、生活の保証も無い、厳しい経済の中、生活の手段としてされている一面もあります。特にタクシードライバーは休みも少なく勤務時間も長い仕事であるのは先進国でも新興国でも同じです。

 

先進国でも、道をわざと遠回りしたりと分かりにくいぼったくりはあったりします。

 

ぼったくられてしまっても、その人の家族(と、その元締め含め?)がこれで数日食っていけると考えて、あまり気にしないようにしましょう。折角の旅行ですから。

 

ここで紹介したコツはあくまで個人的な私見に基づく参考意見です。何事も、最後は安全第一で、安物買いの銭失いどころか、思わぬ事件・事故に巻き込まれないよう無理はしないようにしてください。

Latest List of Cat Islands in Japan Part 3

Booking.com
Source: Findtravel
Source: Findtravel

Latest List of Cat Islands in Japan (Now 17 islands, probably the biggest list) Part 3

 Have you found any good cat island suit your travel plan?

 

Let us continue the list!

13. Yushima island (湯島), Kumamoto

More cats than human (i.e. around 500 people). Actually nice swimming locations for the summer. There are two swimming areas on the islands.

 

Basic info

Name: Yushima 

Access: by boat

Address: Oyanomachi, Amakusa city, Kumamoto

14. Umashima island (馬島), Fukuoka

We like this island because the island is called "Umashima ( =hourse island in Japanese)" but it is full of cats (ca more than 80 cats vs. ca 40 people). The island has a port which is connected to Asano and Aijima island (refer to No. 8 of this list).

Be careful not to mix up with other Umashima(s) in Ehime prefecture and Yamaguchi prefecture.

 

There is no shop, hotel, cafe on this island.

 

Basic info

Name: Umashima

Access: by boat. Take a boat from Kokura port (小倉渡場) to the island (22 mins) 560JPY round trip.

Address: Umashima, Kokurakita Ward, Kitakyushu, Fukuoka

15. Heiguntou(平郡島), Yamaguchi PREFECTURE

More cats than human (i.e. around 600 people). Many cats are black and white.

 

Basic info

Name: Heiguntou 

Access: 2 times a day by boat called Heguri from Yanai port, Yamaguchi

1540JPY (1 hour) to the West port, 1540JPY to the East port (1 hour and 40 mins)

The official time table

Address: Yanai city, Yamaguchi

16. Kasado island (笠戸島), Yamaguchi prefeture

The island is a fisherman's port and also nice for fishing. This attracts cats obviously. 

 

In an ancient time, Masakado Taira planned to put Itsukushima shrine on Kasado island (later he decided to put on Miyajima, Hiroshima). The delicacy of this island is a flat fish (Hirame).

 

Kasado bridge (476.2m) connects this island to the main island.

 

For summer, it is a great place for swimming. It has some sandy beach (Hanaguri beach) and clear water.

It has a camping site and also a hot spring for feet.

17. Ibuki island (伊吹島), Kagawa prefecture

This Ibuki island (or Ibukijima) has been famous for the dried sardine called Iriko (one of the great ingredients for Japanese food).  You know Kagawa is famous for Udon and the base soup is made of Iriko!

 

Iriko is also by coincidence a favourite food of cats!! Today the island is also famous for the cats!!

 

Boat called "New Ibuki" travels 4 times a day between Kannonji port and Maura port (25 min)

 

The accent spoekn by the people on this island is said to be the old accent of Kyoto. 

One of the islands  which are used for Setouchi Triennale.

Share your cat island knowledge

This list is growing every year. Do you know more cat island or area full of cat? Please share with us if you want.

 

If you visit one of these cat islands, please follow the local rule about cats and all. Some islands have rules that you can only feed in specific area etc.

Latest List of Cat Islands in Japan Part 2

Latest List of Cat Islands in Japan (Now 17 islands, probably the biggest list) Part 2

 

So let us continue the list!

6. Ainoshima island (相島), Fukuoka

500 resident island near Fukuoka. Great fishing spot if you are into fishing. There are said to be ca 100 cats living on this island. On 1.25 km2 area there  are two schools.

This is one of the two cat islands featured in CNN (the other being Tashirojima) as " the island dominated by cats" .

 

Basic info

Name: Ainoshima

Access: by boat

Address: Shingū-machi, Kasuya-gun, Fukuoka. There is another Ainoshima of Kitakyushu city, Fukuoka which is also one cat island.

7. Enoshima island ( 江の島), Kanagawa

Closest cat island to Tokyo. Maybe the area is more famous for the location in animation/manga such as Slam Dunk (Kamakura Koko Mae station (鎌倉高校前駅) where you see several famous scenes in real including the train crossing!)

 

There is a bridge connecting to the island thus no boat needed to get there. The island is not full of cats but we found many cats on our last visit to the island. There are several nice sea food restaurants and shops on and around Eonshima. If you are only visiting Tokyo area, check this place out. You can combine your trip to Kamakura - a Japan's ancient capital city with a big Buddha statute.

 

For the last 2,3 years the number of cat decreased. The island was featured by several media as an island with many cats when one of the cats was involved with a crime incident in 2012., where a cyber hacker who illegally controlled someone else's PC hid a SD card in the tiny box attached to the neck of one of the strayed cats on that island. The recent decrease seems to have reflected the increase of attention to Enoshima as a cat island.

 

Some say these cats have been kidnapped...(!) If you know why many of the cats disappeared from the island, please share.

 

Basic info

Name: Enoshima

Access: by bridge

Address: Enoshima, Fujisawa city, Kanagawa

How to get Enoshima?

15 min walk from Enoshima station of Enoshima line,

15 min walk from Shonan Enoshima station of Shonan Monorail or

10 min walk from Katase Enoshima station of Odakyu Enoshima line

 

For example, if you take a train from JR Tokyo station, it is around 1 hour trip. First you take  a Tokaido Line (Tokaido Honsen) to Fujisawa station then change to Enoshima line. Or take a Shonan Shinjuku line from Shinjuku station to Fujisawa station then change to Enoshima line (this is also around 1 hour). 

8. Aijima (藍島), Fukuoka

Probably the access is as easy as Enoshima. As many cat islands' background, the fishery industry took care of cats which can get mice. ca 300 cats and 300 people. Nice beach and camping sites in the summer. 

 

Basic info

Name: Aijima

Access: by boat

Address: Ainoshima, Kokurakita-ku, Kitakyūshū-shi, Fukuoka

9. Manabeshima (真鍋島), Okayama

More cats than its residents (ca 300). Many family names are Manabe. Some famous movies e.g. Gokumon island shot.

 

There are some inns, restaurant, vending machines on this island. 

 

Basic info

Name: Manabeshima

Access: by boat. Take the boat from Kasaoka port to the island. It is around 1 hour and 5 mins. 990JPY. There is also an express ship. It is 45 mins. 1710 JPY.

Address: Kasaoka city, Okayama

10. Iwaishima (祝島), Yamaguchi

Around 500 people (70% is older than 65 year old) living. Good that there are several ryokan and inns. No. of cat is unknown but one inn on the island says there are "many cats".

 

Basic info

Name: Iwaishima

Access: by boat

11. Muzukijima (睦月島), Ehime

Around 400 people living. One of the Kutsuna islands. Agriculture (mandarin orange) and fishery are main industries. You can rent and ride a bike. No place to stay over night.

 

Basic info

Name: Muzukijima

Access: by boat

Address: Matsuyama city, Ehime

12. Kakarashima (加唐島), Saga

Based on the island tradition, keeping dog is not allowed. Maybe this is why cat has flourished. You may see wild hogs which started living there after they swam from the main island. Around 200 people living. Main industry is fishery and camellia (like Toshima island we featured).

 

Basic info

Name: Kakarashima

Access: by boat

Comiket 2 times a year

Big dojinshi fair in the world

Comiket is the biggest Dojinshi ("同人誌" / self-published works by animator/comic artist) convention in the world since 1975 (21 Dec). 

 

We call it "Komike" in Japan. 

This is one good channel to promote yourself as a Manga-ka or Cartoonist in Japan.

 

When to take place?

 

It takes place at Tokyo Big Sight two times a year ("Summer Comiket" in mid August of every year e.g. 10-12AUG and "Winter Comiket" around the end of every year e.g. 29DEC- 1JAN).

 

Besides this, there is Comiket Special which takes place every 5 year.

 

<<How to get a job as Manga-ka or catoonist in Japan?>>

2018 Summer

Word from the organizer for Summer 2018

Update from the organizer for this 2018 August Comiket:

 

Probably the same situation for summer Comike in 2019, 2020 etc. So keep this in your mind if you visit. 

 

1) "Cosplayers should not stay outside under the super hot sun for a long. It was 35 degree already at 10:00AM and hotter than 39 degree at around 14:00 on 10th of August, 2018. ". 

 

It is usually 2-4 mins per each photo shooting. When the cosplayer is popular, there can be more than 20 people to line up to take photos!! Not healthy in this heat.

 

In the end, more than 100 people were taken for care after they felt sick in the heat.

 

It is a fun event but the safety should come first.

 

2) "Cosplayer should not wear scanty stuff."

Some cosplayers wear not much to attract the fans. Be careful with strange fans..you may have give some wrong impression! Again, the safety first. 

 

The photos of the cosplayers are here!

 

We also heard that there were pickpocket cases. One guy was arrested. Watch your belongings!

Cost to visit Comiket

How much to cost to visit the Comiket? 

Free!

Opening hour

Open 10:00AM - 17:00 for the 1st and 2nd day and 10:00AM-16:00 for the 3rd day

(Subject to a possible change in the future. Check the official website )

 

Although not allowed, it is sort of tradition that the visitors rush out of the station gate from the first train which reaches at Rinkai line Kokusai Tenjijo station ( りんかい線国際展示場駅 ).

 

It is called " Shihatsu Dash / 始発ダッシュ or the first train dash ".

Location and How to get there?

The location is at Tokyo Big Sight, a convention hall in Tokyo. You take JR Shinjuku Rinkai line or Yurikamome line from JR Shinbashi station. 

 

You get off at Kokusai Tenjijo station ( りんかい線国際展示場駅 ) of Rinkai line or Kokusai Tenjijo Seimon station (国際展示場正門駅) of Yurikamome line.

Comiket policy

The policy of Comiket is that all participants are equal.

Seller - circle

You need to be selected to be the seller. If selected to be a seller, you need to pay. The normal seller space is a half of a table and two chairs. The seller at the Comiket is called "circle". 

 

The application starts for the next convention around the time of Comiket. That means if you want to be a seller at the next convention, you need to apply around 6 months in advance.

 

If you wish to be a seller, you need to apply by post or email. Many applications fail because of just not enough or wrong information in the application format. You make sure you fill in correctly!

 

More than 36000 circles attend usually

 

Seller can enter at 07:00AM

This is how it is like in Comiket source: wikipedia

More than 500000 visitors usually

 

Visitor can line up from 04:30AM and enter at 10:00AM (in fact you are NOT allowed to line up before 04:30AM but many lineup from the day before)

Cosplayer

If you want to do a cosplay at the Comiket, you need to apply in advance.

 

careful about several rules at Comiket!!

You must be careful about several rules in Comiket. The similar rules apply also to many Dojinshi Conventions in Japan.

 

 

If you want to take a photo/video of someone in the Comiket, unless you blur the person's face, you are not allowed to publish it on your SNS or any sort. If you want to publish, you need to identify yourself with your name and your contact information, the purpose/media details. The organiser is strict with the rules. The penalty could be the eviction from the Comiket.

LIST OF FRIEND/FAMILY RENTAL SERVICES IN JAPAN, WHY Normal?

Booking.com

LIST OF FRIEND/FAMILY RENTAL SERVICES IN JAPAN, WHY Normal?

Renting a friend/family is normal in Japan?

All rights reserved by onegai kaeru
Who helps when you need a friend? All rights reserved by onegai kaeru

onegai kaeru help foreign media in Japan

 

Onegai kaeru team has helped foreign media do interviews. One major European TV broadcaster asked us about the friend/family rental business in Japan. We arranged the interview and local film crew to support. We see more and more outside of Japan are interested in learning more about this type of business.

 

So we felt "maybe we should make the list of the friend rental ". 

 

When feeling stress, people find talking to friends sometimes helps. In this busy world, it is not always friends are around to talk or go out with you.

 

Can you actually rent a friend like car? And the answer is Yes in Japan.

 

<<Ossan (mid aged man) rental is normal in Japan, here to find out more>>

Renting someone for funeral to cry - normal in Asia

We can not tell how the human rental business in Japan started exactly. But hiring someone to do something so personal is not strange in Japan and Asia (also in the ancient Egypt, Rome...).

 

There has been a profession called "Naki-onna (泣き女) or crying woman" in China, Korea, Japan etc. The women are hired to cry at the funeral because the people in some area believed the more tears shed, the better the deceased can be in the heaven.

 

In the old time these crying women got paid with rice. Some says the amount of rice can decide how hard the women would cry. 

 

The tradition lasted in several areas of Japan (such as some part of Okinawa, Hachijojima island, Shimoda of Izu, rural area of Kochi) till the beginning of WWII.

 

This way, it was not strange to hire someone to attend something so personal. Presumably this could be one of the basis, if not only basis, for the friend/family rental businesses to grow in Japan.

why rent a friend or family? Reasons!

family problem at wedding

Why do you want to hire a stranger as your family or friend?

 

Take a wedding as one example.

 

We once attended a wedding where the parents of the bridegroom (our friend) were against the marriage and therefore not present.

 

His company boss attended (in that case, he did not pretend to be the father of the groom btw) and gave some speech where his father was usually supposed to give some words. We are sure some of the friends of the bride side felt a strange (as they were not all informed about the family prob about the marriage).

 

The world is not perfect. Some people have a problem with their parents and cannot invite them for the wedding. But because of an issue like "face issue/面子 or mentsu" for their partner's side some people use this type of service. 

 

Similar situation can happen to any other ceremonies such as funeral. This is why many companies offer to send someones to attend a funeral. This is kinda similar to the "crying woman", is not it?

Make your boyfriend jealous

Some customer hires someone to make their partner feel jealous. For example, one girl felt her boy friend is not that into her. So she hires some cool looking boy from the agency to go out and make her boy friend jealous.

more unique case - out of fear

We have been aware of more service for this human rental service. 

 

Send someone to quit the job

Feel like your boss is too scary to say you want to quit? You can send someone to quit!

 

Send someone to apologize

Do you have to face a client to say sorry? Just hire one to apologize for you.

how much or for what to rent a family / friend in Japan?

One company, Client Partners, which is a well known detective agency in Shibuya, Tokyo lends "friend".

 

Price: 800USD for 11 hours

(the price info from Asahi News, possibly different depending on cases)

 

The official website says as example this service suitable for those who:

 

1. feel so shy to go to a sport gym alone and need somebody to come with

 

2. do not want to play with a stranger at a game center

 

3. need somebody to replace a (real) friend who could not come to a party/event

 

4. freshly moved to a new city and need some friend to show around and drink together

 

 

Onegai Kaeru team knows there are several companies like this one offering service to attend a wedding as a father/mother/friends of the client or so(one wedding costs around 120USD).

 

So here is the list below:

Support one

Price: from 5000JPY for 1 hour plus travel cost

Official website

Note: the company says the company is managed by the women. So the female customers can feel more comfortable.

Family Romance

Price: from 12000JPY for 3 hour plus travel cost

Official website

Note: the company says they can lend someone to make your drinking party more fun!

Hagemashi tai

Price: from 10000JPY one case plus travel cost

Official website

Note: the company says they can lend extras.

Want to interview this company?

Do you want to TV shooting, music video, photo shooting for fashion in Japan?

海外展示会・見本市での窃盗をどう防ぐか - 絶対にしておきたい具体案

世界の展示会での盗難防止策 All right reserved Onegai Kaeru
世界の展示会での盗難防止策 All right reserved Onegai Kaeru

海外での展示会・見本市出展に対する問い合わせが増えております。

 

見本市・展示会での窃盗は意外と起こっています。これは日本国内でも同様ですが、勝手のわからない海外の展示会・見本市は特に注意が必要です。

 

今回は、海外で出展支援をしている弊社の経験の基づき、国内外で展示会に出展する場合、どのように窃盗を防止するかの方法をご紹介します。

 

博物館や美術館から宝石が盗まれるのはよく(!?)あります。先日も、イタリアのドゥカーレ宮殿の展示場で、カタール王国の宝石が盗まれました。美術館のように厳重にしても、窃盗は発生します。

 

展示会・見本市では、美術館のような厳重なセキュリティーは期待ができませんので、高価・貴重なプロトタイプを展示する際は特に用心が必要です。

 

ダイヤモンドや金などいわゆる貴重品を扱うのであれば、用心もしますが、B2Bの展示会·見本市で、まさか窃盗目的で入場しているものがいるとは想像もしていないのが普通です。

 

2017年10月、ベルリンで開催された成人向け展示会Venus-Berlinでは、英国の成人玩具メーカーの製品60000USD(45000ユーロ)相当盗まれるケースがありました。現在、被害にあった会社は、問題解決に協力しない展示会主催側とで争っています。

 

日本でも貴重な楽器が、修復され出展された直後に盗まれるという事件がありました。

 

 

また、2017年に、海外のゲームの展示会CESにて、レイザー社が3分割画面のプロトタイプが盗難されるケースがありました。ハイテク産業の競争が激化する中、展示会での盗難が頻繁に起こっております。

 

プロトタイプや新素材などは、長年の研究開発費や将来的な事業利益も含みますので盗難された場合のロスは計り知れません。

窃盗対抗策

展示前後

輸送のラベルを工夫

展示会への輸送時の箱のラベルを工夫することも手です。高価なものを高価ではないように表示することも時には大事です。極端な場合、貴重なプロトタイプの入った箱の表示を紙資料・パンフレットとしてしまうこともアイデアです。

包装を工夫

貴重なものを入れる包装についても工夫ができます。貴重な製品を入れる箱を貧相な木箱にするという会社もいました。

展示中

不在時はブースを「封鎖」

ブースに人員が少なく、どうしても空けなければならない時は思い切ってブースに、立ち入り禁止のロープを張ってしまうこともアイデアです。「不在ですので、立ち入らないでください」というロープをくぐって入るのは、誰でも躊躇するものです。

施錠できるロッカーを展示ブースに用意

展示ブースのどこかに施錠できるロッカーを配置することで、貴重品を保管できるだけでなく、展示ブースで必要のないものをしまうこともでき、ブースの整理整頓も可能です。

 

貴重品の価値によっては、鍵を持っている人をごく少数に限定することも重要です。

セキュリティー人員を雇う

黒服を着た、怖そうなセキュリティー人員を雇い、貴重品の周りに配置することはとても効果的です。

窃盗を試みる人は、リスクに敏感です。「めんどくさい、危なそう」と思わせることが大事です。これは、今回の防犯策のミソとなります。

紐をつける

古典的ですが有効です。電化製品店や携帯電話の販売店では当たり前になった風景です。貴重品に紐をつけ、展示棚に結び付けます。

GPS追跡装置

窃盗された後の話ですが、貴重品を格納する箱や、貴重品そのものにGPSで追跡できる装置を装着することが有効です。これにより、万が一盗まれても、警察に追尾してもらうことが容易となります。

ご近所さんと見張りあい

両隣前のブースの方々と仲良くなり、お互いに見張りあえるようにします。特に、ブースに配置できる人数の少ない場合に有効です。一人で出店する場合、どうしても場所を空けなければならないことも起こり得ます。


展示会開始の前のご近所との付き合いが大事になります。


またこれらは、セキュリティーの観点だけでなく、事業の可能性にもつながる場合もあります。


ただ、実際に被害にあった場合でも、お隣さんを責めることはできないでしょう。

搬入時・撤収時は特に注意

窃盗は気を張っている時は起こりにくいものです。忙しく、混乱している時が狙われます。

 

会場時間までに間に合わせるために混乱しがちな搬入時、撤収の期限までに忙しい撤収時は特に危ないと思われます。窃盗でなくても、良くものが無くなるのもこのタイミングです。

展示会の高額化

高額になりがちな出展費用

世界の展示会・見本市に出展費用はその知名度が高いほど、年々増加傾向にあります。数百万円から、国際的な有名な展示会では数千万円に上ることもあります。

 

先進国、途上国の展示会・見本市に関係なく、値段は「国際基準」だったりします。

 

更には、国外の展示会・見本市に社員を送り出すとなると、例え近郊の国であってもそれなりの旅費がかかります。展示会近くの宿が理想ですが、展示会期間中は宿の宿泊費も(ここぞとばかりに値上げされ)通常の数倍になるケースもあり、思わぬコストになります。

 

これで、盗難が起これば、高額なサンプルどころか新製品のプロトタイプも失い事業計画の変更も強いられるリスクもあります。
