I played a riddle-solving with my friends last Saturday. It is made by SCRAP which is a mystery maker company. It can be played at home so I invited them to my home. We had about 4 hours to solve all the riddles. The company also makes some riddles in English. So if you come to Japan, please try solving mysteries made by the company. That will be very difficult but very fun.
After playing it, We had sushi which was delivered for dinner. It was a little expensive, but it was delicious.
After dinner, We played ”super mario party” on switch together. This was the first time I played the game with four, as I usually only play with one or two, so it was very fun. They went back home at 10:30 pm because they would not miss the last train.
A new web service was released yesterday. The name of the service is “AkachanAC”. It is made by AC works. The service provides you a predicted face of the baby born between you and your partner. If you want to try this service, please access “https://baby-ac.com/” . Just upload both your face and your partner’s face to the site, you get the predicted face of the baby. I do not know if it is correct but it is very interesting. This service uses an algorithm called GAN(Generative Adversarial Networks). It is AI technology and it can generate high quality images. For example, this technology is applied in deep-fake. The members who created the service would have needed a large number of images of parents and baby’s face to train the AI but I can not imagine how the company collected the images.
Japanese People Are More Formal Than Americans
This generalization depends on which region of Japan you are referring to, but overall Japan, especially Tokyo, is known for being socially colder than most areas of the United States. People tend to stand a relatively far distance apart when speaking, and last names with honorifics(respect words) are used when people speak to or about one another. An example of this can be seen in different approaches to customer service. In America, ideal customer service is usually warm and friendly. In Japan, it is formal and unobtrusive(an-ob-tru-siv – quiet or not attracting attention) . Waiters don’t usually stop by tables to ask customers how the food is or what their weekend plans are, and strangers won’t often chat while waiting for the bus. Physically touching others in public is also less common in Japan than it is in America.
Japanese People Are Nationalistic, But Overall Not Very Political
Politicians in Japan have a shockingly low approval rate. Politicians are quick to resign after making mistakes, which is why Japan has switched (switch’t) its prime ministers almost once a year since 2005. Japan has a parliamentary (parl-ya-metari) system with many parties, and politicians don’t win elections with a majority vote. In fact, Japanese people have a notoriously (popular in a bad way) low voter turnout rate. On the other hand, Japanese people tend to have a lot of love for their country, and they celebrate their unique history, language, and culture in a way that’s not dissimilar to Americans.
