An 11-year-old mountaineer from Yamanashi prefecture is gearing up to conquer Africa’s highest peak, Mount Kilimanjaro. In Adachi Ward, a small explosive device detonated near Nishi-arai Train Station late Monday injuring one passer-by. In Singapore, a Tokyo-based venture capital company, made up of Japanese bank SMBC and the Incubate Fund, has established a funding initiative, investing across Asia in promising finance-related technology or fintech. This coincides with NexTech Week Tokyo
, a 2-day technology trade fair taking place at Tokyo Big Site from today until Friday, with a second session planned for later this autumn. And as the spring holiday season ends, a holiday invented in 1948 then christened 'Golden Week' in 1951 by the Japanese film industry, we walk to Tokyo Tower one warm and windy afternoon listening as people return to work.
