Nikko imposes ban on smoking around cultural assets

*perplexed look* This is a good thing. Of course, I thought there already was a ban on smoking around the important cultural treasures since they're all made of wood, and people tend to worry about fire around things like that. Nonetheless, I'm continuing to be pleased by the progress the anti-smoking campaigns seem to be making in Japan.

(Okay, so I'm sometimes very self-centered. I wasn't going to complain about all the smoking in Japan since it is their country and as such they get to decide how they want to live. But since in recent year people do seem to be coming out against smoking, I am not going to stop myself from being pleased that their decisions make my life more comfortable.)
