The Japanese completely enjoys a territorial problem by using smartphone application

I wrote "Let's enjoy a territorial problem by Android application!" the day before yesterday. Furthermore, the Japanese plays about a territorial problem using iOS application "Eyeland".

Eyeland is geolocation-communication application. Users make own avatar, chat and share the comment & photos based on geolocation. Therefore a certain user went to Liancourt Rocks in the map.


Netizens amused by it struck virtual Liancourt Rocks in sequence.




They did the playful chat about the celebrity of Japanese and Korean.


"Everybody, let's get along!"

I think the Japanese to be superior in a skill to playful by a serious problem.

Let's enjoy a territorial problem by Android application!

Now, Japan becomes serious for a territorial problem with Korea. However, a certain developer developed the cute game application for Android on the topic of this "Takeshima scramble(竹島争奪戦)".


This is the game that a Korean rabbit and a Japanese rabbit swim towards Liancourt Rocks.




The developer says, "Stop the Takeshima scramble. The direction where Japan get along with South Korea can become fortunate rather than we possess Takeshima. If each other wants to fight, we fight by this game."

In addition, the developer says like this, "Takeshima is something like moon for me. In other words, it is an existence which is almost unrelated to a life practical. A neighbor quarrels for a territory of the moon. The latest Takeshima territorial problem is in sight of me at such a comedy." In addition, it has been thought that a rabbit lived in the moon in the East Asia from ancient times. For it, a character of this game is "rabbits".

Of course this application has a pro and con. However, I support the thought of the developer. It is stupid to quarrel with a neighbor and to concentrate on nationalism. If there is such time, it is more fun to play a game :)

[R18] The porn saves the earth

A disgusting hypocritical charity TV program is broadcasted every summer in Japan. Suck drama, suck documentary(It is forged :D), suck idols etc... In getting tired, they are broadcasted consecutively for 24 hours.
I think that this project is cool than this.

[R18]


Paradise TV,  the Japanese pornography channel  carried out a splendid charity project "The porn saves the earth". When participants contribute 1,000 yen(about 12.6USD) or more, they can rub the boob of 8 popular porn stars. In other words it is 125 yen per person. Of course they can participate again and again.


10 porn stars cooperated with this cool project. And they collected donations of 4,200,000 yen in 2 days. This is contributed all to Japan Foundation for AIDS Prevention.

Let's enjoy a handsome hot spring with iPhone

"Personification" is the Japanese proud skill. The Japanese personifies every thing. The Japanese personifies every thing and give them character.

Gigno System Japan released the iOS application that personified a hot spring to a handsome man.

http://itunes.apple.com/jp/app/id549355834?mt=8
This is the application that personified Misasa Onsen in Tottori, Japan.

Originally they released the drama CDs which personified Japanese famous hot springs.

This iOS application evolved from these drama CDs more. This has a full voice function, and a popular voice actor is in charge of a voice. The user can communicate in characters , manage the schedule and use the alarm function. When a user communicates with him a lot and makes friends, his lines and expression change.




However, unfortunately we cannot use this application while entering the hot spring. Because iPhone is broken.

The Peace Learning Archive in OKINAWA

Japan's Okinawa is the place where an intense ground war was carried out in Pacific War. And there are people killed in action of a large quantity of numerical private citizen. However, it is not known very much. Therefore Okinawa showed digital archive using Google Earth "The Peace Learning Archive in OKINAWA".




http://peacelearning.jp/

This is the archive which mapped data of the Okinawa ground war on Google Earth.

Many icons are displayed on Okinawa. The icons of the face of people show an interview video.

Click them, we can watch the interview Youtube video of the survivor of the Okinawa ground war.



Furthermore, we can watch photos of Okinawa at the time of the Pacific War. They are put on a map of current Okinawa.

An interesting point of these data are that not only the geolocation but also the time axes is given these. We can watch data with this "time slider".

For example, there are few data at the time of the Pacific War outbreak.

However, there are many data at the time of the Pacific War end.

In addition, Okinawa Peace Memorial Museum and Okinawa Archives Building cooperate with this archive production entirely. So many valuable data are collected. Besides, we can watch all this free.

This helps the peace learning of the school very much. Of course English is supported.
