Miami verdict against tobacco giants: liable for lung cancer and emphysema. Mainichi Shimbum carries story on first page as does Japan Times, but the story was conpicuously absent from Asahi Shimbum.
Asked why by non-smokers' advocate Bungaku Watanabe, no reason was given.
However the very next day Asahi ran a full page ad for the Nikko "smokers' tours"!
THANKS TO EVERYONE who came for our "NO SMOKE - ALL PLAY" night to show their support!!!
The Tokyo Sports Cafe brought out a casual NS crowd mixing with the Cafe's regulars who were found to be 85% NON-SMOKERS by our poll at the door! Surprising? So much for the common assumption that "everyone smokes in Japan." It's simply NOT true!
A few of us went out for something to eat afterwards, "kinenseki" of course, to complete a smoke-free evening of enjoyment. Please join us next time!
It continues that there are more people who want NO SMOKE than who want the vile fumes. The time has finally arrived in our smoky city, Tokyo!
Next month we will hold another SMOKE-FREE evening so be sure to join us in Akasaka or at another location which will be posted here. Or call for the latest info or directions: 3589-8600 ext.927

PS: We now have 5 SMOKE-FREE restaurants for you in our restaurant link, and many more to be posted soon!
Have a nice smoke-free SUMMER!
NO SMOKE TOKYO is the first
non-smokers association in Tokyo
whose agenda is to increase the number
of non-smoking areas throughout the
city with special attention to
increasing smoke-free restaurants,
bars and other places of relaxation
and entertainment, because tolerating
a polluted indoor environment for
"enjoyment" doesn't make sense.
Have you returned home from an evening
out for a "good time" only to face
yourself with eyes red from the smoke
pollution and your clothes and hair
covered with a stinky layer of nicotine?
If you feel as we do, please join us at
our events to support a smoke free
environment for everyone. We are a
non-profit group of Tokyo residents and
we welcome your involvement and
contribution in any way.
.....We would like to hear comments and ideas from anyone
.....about non-smoking in Tokyo, Japan and the world. We
.....welcome your input and leads to any non-smoking places
.....in the city, but especially those for relaxation and
.....entertainment. Referrals will be added to our links so
.....that others may enjoy them as soon as possible.
.....Please contact us by e-mail at email@example.com
.....or by phone at 3589-8600 ext 927 where you may leave
.....your comments as a message to us 24hrs a day and they
.....will be written up and posted here!
..........Thank you all and have a happy smoke-free day!!!
