Yeah you have to pre treat big nasty stains like curry, grass or blood. Then you can handwash it to the end, or throw it in the machine with the rest of your clothes.

In my country having a machine is expensive but it isn't as time consuming as going to the washing machine store, or as washing 30 pounds of clothing by hand. Japan is rich so I think it might be same way (also what I saw). I only handwash gentle things like my special scarves.

I think the weird imagery is important. I mean, how many other children's novels from the era lend themselves well to a yurilicious Clamp OVA? A Code Geass spinoff? Bishie-laden otome game(s, there's quite a few)?

Also, stuff like these:

I think at least some Japanese use washing machine, but dry on the clothesline (unless it's raining then they'll use a backup drying machine). That's really smart because air drying prevents clothes shrinkage. At least that's what I've seen, but I haven't gone into every Japanese house.


In America we don't hand wash. We all use washing machines. Even poor people just go to these stores we have dedicated to washing machines. Nobody hand washes, except the rich who want to pay somebody to do it.

We also dry clean but only for important clothes, like suits and fancy dresses.
A lot of clothing *requires* hand washing -- read the labels? Maybe you ought to stop speaking for "America" because daily life varies so much from what happens in one neighborhood.

Today I learned that there is strong ties between Japanese culture and marijuana prior to the modern era, fascinating stuff.

I heard about that too actually, from my Japanese friend who is all all all about the uses of hemp based products. I take it all with a grain of salt, but some mild research indicates there's a lot of truth to it.

You have to say hemp instead of marijuana. For that matter Terrestrial Dream, you don't know about the importance of hemp to Korea?

Yeah there seems to be some misconception going on there.

The usage of hemp in medicine dates to China, as far back as 700 BC.
As far as its usages for pain relief and other medical usages in Japan (and I assume Koreaas well), they were used scarcely and not a common usage. But they did exist. Records are scarce, as well as stories, it is quite doubtful there were "strong ties".
It should be noted, that hallucinogen THC was extremely low in these east-asian hemps, less than 0.1%, so it is unlikely they were used like pots. They are simply just not strong enough to have such "getting on high" effects.

Might as well just jack off at that rate.

The use of hemp as marijuana actually started in the 1960's due to the US troops stationed in Japan and Korea. It's a foreign concept.

I wouldn't be so sure. I remember reading from Herodotus(written about 500 BC) that the Scythians from the Steppes of modern day Ukraine/Southern Russia would "sit inside an enclosed tent with hot stones in the center. They would throw hemp seeds upon the stones and howl with pleasure"(I paraphrase). Indians also had a long practice of using cannabis, and from my reading of Wikipedia, it's properties were well known to Chinese medicine, Shamans and Taoists. According to "Shennong Ben Cao Jing" "To take much makes people see demons and throw themselves about like maniacs. But if one takes it over a long period of time one can communicate with the spirits, and one's body becomes light".

That said, it may be that Soldiers popularized it outside of medicinal circles. That said, I can't imagine farmers could have not come across the recreational properties of hemp.
