Japan's New 'Sayonara' Tax on Travelers Is Here

Thanks to a bevy of flight deals and new routes, it's now easier than ever to get to Japan — but it also just got slightly more expensive to leave the country once you've had your fill of Tokyo sushi, Okinawa beaches, and Kyoto temples. On Monday, the country began collecting a "sayonara" tax from visitors. The new fee of ¥1,000 ($9.23) will be tacked onto plane and ship transportation fares of all passengers when booking, regardless of nationality.

  Okinawa Food: What to Eat in Okinawa (And why) After a weekend of toddler birthday parties and enough salty quavers to sink a ship, I’m thinking back to the food I found in Okinawa as a tonic for recent overindulgence. Not because of its striking flavours and visual appeal, nor because I love food from around the world (well, OK, not just because of that.) I’m mulling over Okinawa’s traditional food as it’s often credited as the secret to a long and healthy life. Okinawa Seaweed: The Se...

Establishment of the immortalized cell line derived from Okinawa rail (endangered species)

As part of the cellular conservation of endangered species, our group initiated a primary cell culture project aimed at preserving endangered avian species in Japan, such as the Okinawa rail. However, primary cells cannot be cultured indefinitely because of cellular senescence and stresses caused by cell culture.

Traveling solo in Japan is a fascinating, warm, and unforgettable experience. Most people have an idea in their head of what Japan will be like, but it’s impossible to understand until you’re there yourself. Japan is immaculate temples brimming with lanterns. Japan is steaming bowls of ramen on a cold night. Japan is shy geishas rushing to their appointments in platform sandals, bullet trains carving through the countryside, bubbling hot springs set in the mountains. And so much more. At the ti...
