How did you manage to become the youngest person?

On a serious note, how's the scene in Tokyo in contrast to those in other cities? Do police harass you as well? How easy is to get food donations for your work?

I usually hear about the social roles and stigma women face in society, how do they approach their activism there?

Have you had a chance to do much thinking on how to change your practices based on the specifics of your location?

Since I understand Japan to be somewhere with a generally very taxing work ethic, I wonder what an anti-work politics would look like there.

Because of the above, building revolutionary infrastructure is so so important

I hear you. It's similar out here. We have regular state socialists but they don't seem to do much.

Sadly, for the most part, anti-work politics looks like it doesn't go beyond graffiti, pamphlets, marches, and yuck petitions.

I was thinking about Japan's infamous work ethic and how there must be some interesting ways to challenge that from an anti-work perspective. I'd be super excited to hear about what people end up doing there. Starting with graffiti and flyers is ok I think, I'm not sure what other options exist even in places with a lot of people who have an anti-work politics.
What kind of graffiti are you seeing around this?

How popular is anarchy there? What are the various rad politics subgroups and do they work together? Is it more capitalistic than other places you've been?

What's your favorite food?

Do japanese people acknowledge climate change? Here people know it's happening but don't care enough to take initiatives.
