ANA is launching a discount airline that will offer Japan low-priced domestic and international routes, and even JAL is considering the same thing. Great if you're flying from Beijing or Seoul, but would you book seats on a discount airline on a long or overnight flight to Japan?

I do not approve of bullfighting, but I just read about Japanese bullfighting, which is very different. I did not know about this. The Japanese bullfights have no toreador and two bulls at a time, who push and butt each other for a few minutes. Then the match is stopped, the judges decide who won, and the contestants return to the pasture alive and well. This is all new to me.

Bloomberg News reports that of all the people in the Group of Seven, the Japanese take the fewest vacation days, and the Frenchwork take the most.

Not only do Japanese employers offer the fewest vacation days (on average, 16.5), but the employees only take 9.5 of those days, while French employees take off 34.5 of 37.5 days.

According to Maurizio Del Conte, a labor professor at Bocconi University in Milan, “The Japanese are work-addicted, they’re like fish out of water when on holiday." Is this because of today's economic environment, or is it another manifestation of the ganbare ethos?

As I learned when I was facing a sea monster in my chopsticks, your staff is right.
