LIFE & RESIDENCE
Do you prefer to pay with cash? Or do you prefer go cashless?
I’m in the latter camp.
Which is to say, I don’t feel that there’s much merit in using cash.
Sometimes (as is a bit of a theme with some of my articles), you're on a budget because – for example – you just moved to another country and you're only starting to settle in.
In Japan today, brick-and-mortar bookstores are on the verge of disappearing. The reason can be found on the internet.
Over 90% of Japan’s population is squeezed into urban areas. This means that the vast majority of Japanese people are large town or city dwellers, and only a small percentage know what it’s like to live in the countryside or remote areas.
In the last few parts, I talked about the Japanese countryside. Now, we’re going to start on the Kominka itself; something I’m just using for brevity, since the word more or less means a minka (a standalone house for ordinary people rather than a manor or some sort of communal mass-housing) that is old.
I think most people these days know and use video streaming services like YouTube, right?
What about live performance streams, though?
