News flash

These days my phone is set to sound an alert when there is an important news update.
It's a bit of an overkill but I am a news junkie and I figure it's good to be precautionate.

Beeep beeep beeep.

A heart flutter... quick look.... breaking news....

Tokyo Disneyland is reopening on 6 April but on reduced hours.

Hmmm... perhaps I can disable the function.

The boy who cried wolf quickly came to mind when I read your post. If it is a warning then it should just be that. No one will take any notice of it if continues to produce irrelevant information

Guess I just delurked!!

:) Hi Achan - thanks for delurking.

It's just possible that I don't quite get the news alerts function since it's a new phone but...I don't think so...
Much better at least than an alert to say the Tokyo water supply is contaminated with plutonium!

I just came across your blog....thanks for this. I am planning on travelling to Tokyo/Hokkaido late May, and with all the negative news from abroad it's nice to see what the reality is from a local. Please keep us posted. Thank you so much :)

Hi Marcus,

If you have anything in particular you'd like to know, please feel free to ask.
Late May is a beautiful time in Japan.
