2012 Picture of the Week (36/52) – Guardian Fox

At shrines in Japan, you can usually see a pair of guardian dogs (lion dogs, actually). However, at Inari shrines, you can see guardian foxes. This picture is a preview of a shrine near where I live.

This is the fox on the left side. There’s another on the right.

Earthquake at Mt Fuji now?

A couple of hours ago, there was a 6.0 magnitude earthquake in Fujinomiya city in Shizuoka prefecture, just west of Mt Fuji.  This earthquake is not related to Mt Fuji.  I’ve been monitoring twitter quite a bit lately, just so I could get some actual news, rather than what CNN is reporting, and the Japan Meteorological Agency stated that it is not related to Mt Fuji.  The mountain is quiet.

On the topic of CNN, I wish that they, MSNBC and FOX would just report the actual news.  They hype things up and provide misinformation.  No, Tokyo is not in a panic.  No, there isn’t a poisonous cloud of radioactive gas heading to Tokyo.  Tokyo is safe.  No, Sendai was not destroyed.  My advice to western media is this:  Start reporting real news or shut the hell up.  They’re doing more damage than good by reporting lies just to boost their ratings.  Shameless.  Absolutely disgusting and irresponsible.
