Japanese: Blogger Greets Everyone Just Like The Commercials Instructed [Japanese] Cute entry about a blogger who decides to embrace the message from the recent glut of commercials urging us to greet people more. After the first positive result, people seem happy to respond.

Oh, that blog entry is so cute XDXDXD I'm imagining the looks on their faces as this stranger is all Hello, Hello~ at them. ♥

I want to say something equally encouraging & cheerful regarding the rally, but words are harder, because I feel a rally of this nature in Tokyo is something absolutely incredible and I don't have the words to convey my pride/respect/glee/awe(?). If that makes sense. So imagine instead me doing a silent fist-pump of Yes in my chair that so many people turned up, and instead of saying ううん、ちょっと。。。 they said いや

Also do not let me drink and comment on people's blogs because I will probably not make any sense at all, BUT that is what I feel and think when looking at those pictures.

Very mixed reactions indeed. :)

People are really changing their attitude towards everything lately. Like getting angry and the government or getting out there and protesting. I hope it continues and they have something to show for it soon.

Thanks for commenting, regardless of level of drunkenness!

That's cool so many people came out in support of the rally. I hope sometime in our lifetime Japan will address most of it's discrimination issues. :D

I think it's a good start. Right now, people are starting to express their thoughts in public more and there's a lot of anger at officials right now. I hope it keeps up.
