Last night one of the top news in NHK’s News Watch 9 was that 13 tourists from China dared to set foot onto Japanese soil again. What a sad story. They were being welcomed at Narita, or was it Haneda, with fanfares and TV cameras. Must have been odd for them… Though the whole scene seemed pretty pathetic on second thought it’s maybe good news – the world has become nicely interdependent. No matter how much the Japanese and Chinese might disagree about certain issues, they need each other! So let’s hope the flow of tourists to Tokyo and the rest of Japan will increase again from now on.
