This one was developed 10 years ago, as a “see through” mask so the face could be seen rather than for lip reading.

Another pic of the mask on the left. The mouth part is transparent and a non transparent part goes under the chin. pic.twitter.com/Kz3Gt5vvuj

Even if the point (I think) is to say being a woman doesn't mean you are a good leader (um, duh?) you should at least mention as a good example the leader of the nation that has arguably handled the COVID-19 the best of all, huh?

The Atlantic piece about 'strong women leaders' does not mention Tsai Ing-wen of Taiwan. Typical.

Ishikawa: 63.1 Aichi: > 100 Kyoto: 99.1 Ibaraki: > 100 Gifu: > 100 Gunma: > 100 (All but Tokyo, Hokkaido, Kanagawa, Saitama, Ishikawa and Kyoto are now taking more than 100 days to double; Kyoto is almost there)

Yeah I read that too, but no explanation found so far. In Japan funeral flowers also come in odd numbers.

So an ikebana arrangement always has an odd number of the same flower. Japanese dinnerware traditionally comes in sets of 5 (you can get less these days) rather than the 6 that’s common in the west. pic.twitter.com/iz0ZIASGas

Another aside: the page linked to above says the numbers 4 and 9 are considered unlucky in Japan. 4 still is, 9 not so much (you’ll see 9th floors in buildings but not so much 4th floors). However the unluckiness of 13 has been imported somewhat now.

Incidentally, there was a native wago or Yamatokotoba way to count numbers, but it didn’t count above the hundreds. I guess there was little need back then for higher numbers.

(The Chinese numbering system is almost the same as Japanese with some minor variations, since Japan imported it from China a long time ago)
