🚨The exciting part of the year for Japanese politics is rapidly approaching: with the race for the leadership of the LDP upon us, the general election for the Lower House is getting closer and closer.📆

Reports say that it could take place by Mid-October! Thus, this project:➕ Image
I would like to make a rundown on the 289 Single-Member Districts that compose part of the Lower House of the Japanese Diet.

Let's see the conditions of each district, the candidates & how the Japanese media & history see the race. Join me and follow along! In for a long ride🎢
Yes. I'm THAT crazy. LOL

All in with the 289 districts. Let's do it for fun and in order to learn more (myself included) about JP politics.

Please don't hesitate to add info, point out mistakes or anything you want! #JapanPolitics

Before COVID, the #Aichi @irouren nurses were able to express their frustrations like any other worker. Now under the #StateofEmergency, they will not walk but just hold a presser and engage the social media. #看護の日
Leading up to the presser, @irouren & labor unions nationwide unleashed a fierce SNS campaign expressing the anger & frustration of the nurses on the field, gathering almost 0.5M tweets to date. This nurse exclaimed, “WE ARE NOT DISPOSABLE PAWNS!” #看護は自己犠牲じゃない
But despite the fierce protest, the Japan Nursing Association reportedly succumbed to the demands of the #Tokyo2020 organizers to ‘secure’ 500 nurses for the Games. #Aichi @irouren have rejected saying, “It is unimaginable: one sick-leave is rendering our operation useless!”

At a duck farm in Chiba Prefecture, east of Tokyo, the Ministry of Agriculture and the Chiba Prefectural Government said Thursday, an outbreak of avian influenza thought to be highly pathogenic has been reported.
Approximately 12,400 ducks will be culled for food, including 6,000 at the Yokoshibahikari town farm and 6,300 chicks shipped from the farm in the past week to six prefectures, including neighboring Ibaraki.
The nine farms in Akabira in Hokkaido, Kakuda in Miyagi, Koga and Kasumigaura, both in Ibaraki, Gyoda and Kasukabe, both in Saitama, Matsubara in Osaka and Gose in Nara, are subject to duck culling in the six prefectures.

In #Tokyo's #Shibuya ward, you notice little of the threatening storm that is approaching

Until you want to get water or cash

None of the stores I visited had large water bottles (even though they bought extra stock), ATM's had people waiting

Apparently there also many stores where far more than water has been sold out

#Tokyo and surrounding areas seem to be getting ready for something serious


Weather warnings by the Japan Meteorological Agency as of 17:39 JST on Oct 11

The typhoon is not expected in Tokyo until Saturday
