I received at home yesterday…a bill for real estate acquisition tax payment…almost 100,000 yen. Oh dear…
Also, we needed 400,000 yen for the wood stove. The cost of opening the Ten-Sho-An was close to 12 million yen.It was just ten years ago that I, who was earning about one hundred yen an hour, bought the center we have today for 12 million yen. And I’m still shopping for 12 million…even though my hourly wage hasn’t changed. Of course, we do have debt. I still have debts from the last purchase, and yet again I have borrowed a large amount of money from many of you as an investment… Well, I have heard that assets are healthy at plus or minus zero, so I think that having debts itself is not a bad thing.
Anyway, everyone, from now on, the ‘Japan ship’ will be sinking one by one and the world economy will collapse… but how to survive? For the time being, not only the skills, but also the emergency evacuation kit, and of course, the long term food and water supply should be secured before the time is up.
Oh, it’s just my imagination, so if you think it’s ridiculous, just laugh it off.
