Venturing away from Kyoto briefly if I may, from tomorrow the Kobe Luminarie begins.

Running from December 6th-15th, the city's annual illuminations are a festive delight...the perfect tonic to lift those early winter blues.
#Kobe #Japan #KobeLuminarie2019 #神戸ルミナリエ #神戸
for a moment
the darkness is lighted...

しばらくは闇のともしを花火哉
-Kobayashi Issa (小林一茶).
Trans. David G. Lanoue.

Kobe Luminarie (神戸ルミナリエ) began in 1995 as a way to lift the spirits of a city recovering from the devastating Great Hanshin Earthquake.
Thousands of tiny painted bulbs are gathered into intricate designs & illuminate the Old Foreign Settlement (旧居留地 Kyu-kyoryuchi) & Higashi-yuenchi Park (東遊園地公園), site of the Great Hanshin Earthquake Memorial Flame (1.17希望の灯り).

THOUSANDS OF BOARS HELP WITH THE FOUNDING OF YOSHIMINE-DERA (善峯寺)🐗🐗🐗🐗-

Yoshimine-dera is the 20th (of 33) temple on the famed Saigoku Kannon Pilgrimage (千手観音は西国三十三か所巡礼第20番札所). It is known for its early summer hydrangea & autumn colours. 1/13
#Kyoto #京都
The temple's huge grounds (10,000 square metres) sprawl up the upper slopes of Shaka-dake (釈迦岳-631m). In the Middle Ages it was known as Nishiyama-no-miya (西山宮) and was classed as a Monzeki temple (the abbot was of imperial blood), with over 50 main structures. 2/13
#善峯寺
Known affectionately as Yoshimine-san (善峯さん) and Matsu-no-dera (松の寺-the 'Temple of the Pine'), after the famed Yuryu-no-matsu (遊龍の松-Playing Dragon Pine), the temple's principal image is a statue of Juichimen Senju Kannon (十一面千手観世音菩薩). 3/13

Need some inspiration to start your week? Let me tell you about another of my #heroes,

Beate Sirota Gordon,

who at just 22 years of age became the godmother of women's rights in postwar #Japan...1/
2/Beate Sirota was born in 1923 in Vienna, Austria, to Jewish parents.

Fortunately for them, Leo Sirota's piano skills gave them the opportunity to move to Japan long before Nazism had consumed their country.
3/Beate attended the American School in Japan after transferring from the German school (which was "too Nazi" according to her father), but she traveled around Japan becoming fluent in the culture and the language.

A Thread on #China. Some data and some thoughts. I hope you find it useful.

What's different about China's GDP number?
Is China growing at 6% as it lets everyone else believe?
Can China come out of this without devaluing its currency?
1/ #China’s GDP is an input number and not an output figure like in western economies. National accounts are based on data collected by local governments which are rewarded for meeting growth targets; hence, they have an incentive to skew the data they provide to the Central Gov.
2/ Looking at different data sets one will see that #China is merely growing. PMI sentiment is falling fast; a number below 50 denotes a contraction and not an expansion as the GDP growth rate suggests. Manufacturing (49.8) & New Export Orders (48.2) have already fallen below 50.

WEDNESDAY MORNING IN ENERGY: Where I'm mostly just going to leverage the #Kentucky election to talk about Justified to try to get some eyeballs, mostly because lots going on! #OOTT #energy
So today is where we've got a big day in Brazil - where they're auctioning off offshore rights on a whole load of acreage. #OOTT

Definitely need to follow @NoriegaMarta @mariannaparraga @G_Slattery on this one.

reuters.com/article/brazil…
If all the areas receive a bid, Brazil’s government will net 106.5 billion reais ($26.7 billion) in signing bonuses - and that will plug holes in the country's leaky budget.

Brazil is one of few non-OPEC countries boosting production, meanwhile. #OOTT

Japanese football club names, a thread.

So I noticed that some Japanese clubs have foreign words in their names. It made me delve deeper into the subject and the fact is that it is a profound tradition. In this thread I will explain how and why regarding several clubs.

1/20
Kashima Antlers,
English influences.

The word Antlers comes from the city name, Kashima, which actually means "deer island".

2/20

#jleague #badges #footballbadges #Japan @atlrs_official
Urawa Red Diamonds.
English influences.

The Red Diamonds refers to the club's parent company Mitsubishi. The car manufacturer's logo consists of three red diamonds, and one of them remains within the current club crest.

@ChinneryRoy @RT_sputnik @georgegalloway @francisbeckett @GayatriGalloway @RT_com @UKLabour I don't believe you've read much history of WW2... if you had you wouldn't have come out with such an uninformed statement!
1st & foremost, George is correct - Britain fought for 2 years on our own & that is what saved the world... & what America conveniently forgets! ...cont
@ChinneryRoy @RT_sputnik @georgegalloway @francisbeckett @GayatriGalloway @RT_com @UKLabour 2. There were more '#British' troops landed on D-Day than #American troops.
The #OmahaBeach disaster was the #Americans fault - They screwed up there as they did in #NorthAfrica, #Sicily & #Italy & in the #Pacific at #PearlHarbour on #Tarawa & #Pelelieu & elsewhere. ...cont
@ChinneryRoy @RT_sputnik @georgegalloway @francisbeckett @GayatriGalloway @RT_com @UKLabour 3. #USNavy CnC Earnest King caused a disaster in the #Atlantic in late 12.'41-05'42 when over 600 merchant ships were sunk in sight of US coast, because he didn't want to take #British Advice.
Of all the #American commanders only #Eisenhower & Marshall were Not Anglophobes! ..ct

Thread 1/ #Typhoon Hagibis made landfall in #Japan and has caused widespread flooding with human lives lost. Spare a thought for those in Japan who need help at present. #Fukushima Daiichi. But some are using this storm to promote scientific misinformation
2/ I am seeing posts that link the #radioactive contamination/decay heat from #Fukushima Daiichi & the development of tropical cyclones like #Hagibis and going so far as to say the human caused global warming is not like to #CO2 but nuclear fallout/contamination
3/ The argument goes something like this and is summarized in a blog I posted some time ago @dailykos dailykos.com/stories/2016/1…:
1. Fukushima released radionuclides to the environment with much of the contamination ending up in the Pacific Ocean
2. Isotopes generate heat on decay

A leading five star hotel in #India had invited Mr. Masai Imai from Japan to hold a workshop for its staff.
The staff were very skeptical - the hotel is doing excellent business, this person from #Japan has no exposure to hotel industry - what exactly is he going to teach?

But everybody gathered as planned for the workshop in the conference hall sharp at 9 am.
Mr.Masai was introduced to them;a not so impressive personality,nor the English all that good;spoke as if he was first formulating each sentence in Japanese & then translating it into rather clumsy English.

#HAGIBIS #TYPHOON COMING TO #JAPAN

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
#HAGIBIS #TYPHOON COMING TO #JAPAN

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

#HAGIBIS #TYPHOON COMING TO #JAPAN

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

The typhoon is not expected in Tokyo until Saturday

Moon Jae-in's F-35A check-in yesterday gets a reply. #NorthKorea
Single missile is interesting. They've tended to come in pairs this year.
Also, given the Trump administration's willingness to brush aside the short-range testing this year, no cost in testing for upcoming working-level talks.

If you have been following for a while certain phrases will remind you of a crumb:

No coincidences
You have more than you know
News unlocks map
Enjoy the show
etc
@realDonaldTrump @LizzJustLizz @freenaynow @QBlueSkyQ @intheMatrixxx [3]

While the crumbs on their own seem just a ransom selection of words they may not be Quite so random if in fact the future does prove past.
