June 18th is onigiri day in Japan. The 6th month was chosen because a fossilized Yayoi period rice ball was found in Rokusei-machi, in Ishikawa, and “roku” rhymes with 6. The 18 comes from the kanji “kome” 米, which broken down, looks like 10 and 8. 🍙

6月18日は日本の「おにぎりの日」です。石川県の鹿西町 (ろくせいまち) の杉谷チャノバタケ遺跡で弥生時代に作られた炭化したおにぎりの化石が発見されました。鹿西町の名前から6 (ロク) と、米食の日 (米という漢字をバラバラにすると十と八となることから) に因んで、町おこし一環として6月18日に「おにぎりの日」を制定したそうです。🍙

Labor Thanksgiving Day has been a national holiday each Nov 23 since World War II, in which Japanese people show their gratitude for labor, and has also traditionally been the day the Shinto "Niinamesai" ceremony is held. "Niinamesai" is a harvest festival performed by the emperor (and at many shrines in Japan), in which he harvests rice he planted himself, offering it and newly produced sake to the goddess Amaterasu. In doing so, he gives thanks for the year’s harvest, and prays for a bountiful next year. 🇯🇵🍁

Version 67 of Google's Chrome browser has a feature called "site isolation" newly enabled by default. This is designed to mitigate the risk of attacks like "Spectre" by reducing the data available to the attacker. The trade-off is, Chrome now requires far more system memory, possibly making it a poor option for older systems.

Google Chromeブラウザのバージョン67は、”サイト分離”という機能がデフォルト設定で新しく有効になっています。これは、Webサイトをそれぞれ独立したプロセスへ隔離し、ユーザーデータが盗まれるのを防ぐ事が可能となっているため、“Spectre”のようなサイバー攻撃のリスクを軽減するために設計されたものです。その反面、Chromeは大幅なシステムメモリの増量が必要となり、旧式のシステムでは使用できない可能性があります。

Japan visitors: if you're staying at an Airbnb or other P2P-style lodging, you should note that Japan local governments and police have started cracking down on illegal P2P operators based on a new law enacted in June 2018 to regulate so-called minpaku (民泊) vacation rentals. Airbnb delisted 10s of thousands of non-compliant lodgings, and major tourist destination Kyoto has also started cracking down. The bottom line is, travelers should re-confirm that your P2P lodging is legitimate, and because people are sensitive about this topic now, maintain a low profile during your stay.

訪日外客へ: 日本を訪れる予定のご友人・知人の方にも日本の民泊最新情報をお知らせください。2018年6月15日より施行された住宅宿泊事業法に基づき、日本の自治体や警察による違法民泊の摘発が行われる事になりました。AirbnbやP2P形式の宿泊施設を利用する場合は、この新民泊法についてご注意ください。Airbnbは既に住宅宿泊事業(民泊)の届出番号を取得していない数万件の違法民泊施設のリスティングを削除 しました。そして、主要観光地である京都でも違法民泊の取締りが始まりました。
