March 14th is White Day in Japan. Guys, are you ready?

If you read my post back in February about Valentines day, you know exactly what I mean. If not, I’ll explain again with Wikipedia.

“White Day was first celebrated in 1978 in Japan. It was started by the National Confectionery Industry Association as an “answer day” to Valentine’s Day on the grounds that men should pay back the women who gave them chocolate and other gifts on Valentine’s Day. In 1977, a Fukuoka-based confectionery company, Ishimuramanseido, marketedmarshmallows to men on March 14, calling it Marshmallow Day (マシュマロデー Mashumaro Dē).” – Wikipedia

Go on, show her you care…

A couple of weeks ago a fellow Tweeter (?) and blogger,  Ris,  invited people to comment about a BBC documentary on  a 15 year old girl who decided to skip high school to become a Maiko.

You have to give credit to Yukina for her passion and dedication but also to her mother for trusting her daughter AND believing in her, not to mention her Maiko sisters.

Americans love the idea of being strong and independent. We live in an individualistic society in contrast to Japan’s collectivistic society. However, no matter how you look at it (in both cultures) you’re only as strong as the people who support you.

My 2¢.
