(Comments from the editorial department :I’m a huge fan of chicken liver. At a past part-time job at a yakitori restaurant when I was a student, I loved eating liver as a meal. The beautifully processed liver that arrived at the yakitori restaurant had no appearance of chicken that was alive. I’m ashamed. Until I read this news, I didn’t realize that I was eating lives. Otsubo, Deputy Editor-in-Chief


After experiencing the Corona pandemic, you will find that such a place where you can enjoy yourself with your important family and pets is valuable. Akashi, Producer


There are few places where you can run around freely with your children and pets. We have vacant spaces in the Hokuriku region, but they are not well-maintained and have less greenery. A private company developed its site and is to open to the public as a park. Its news sounds surprising to me. Takei, Web Development Director)
