The State of Emergency was lifted in Japan

Hi Everyone,

Chikuhodo released new brushes.

One is T11, Liquid (6200 YEN) and the other is T12 (2200 YEN) eyeshadow.

Both are Takumi series with saikoho goat hair.

Please let me know if you are interested.



‘Loose’ lockdown worked in Japan.

Shops, department stores, gyms, museums, etc will open gradually.

People are wondering why it worked, but I haven’t heard any convincing theories except

Social pressure.

Social pressure or people’s desire to be the same may be unique to Japan.
Japanese people are sensitive to social pressure, and many Japanese try not to stand out.

Yet,

Social pressure is mostly discussed negatively in japan as it keeps people from being different or creative.

School encourages kids to be creative, but not many of them want to be different.

Japanese are good at being efficient while we are not as creative as people in some other countries.

Personally, I am not a big fan of the pressure to be the same, but some people like it.

I cannot say this is good or bad, since I have seen both good and bad sides.

For example,

in this corona situation, this culture works better.

I cannot go out without a mask.

99% of people wear a mask on the street.

When I forget wearing a mask, I go home to get it.

There is a joke.

A person felt hot with a mask, so he pulled it off.
Someone walking toward him suggested him to wear a mask, but this person was not wearing a mask….

Well, this is a joke, but this is kind of pressure that makes people wear a mask.

Anyway,
Now life gets back to normal.


The EMS situation remains the same as in April.

Please wait a little and I will let you know when it gets better,

Thank you for reading!
