It seems Kyoto is planning to take drastic measures to reduce greenhouse gasses. Close all the convenience stores (combini to the Japanese).
Well, not quite that drastic. Japan Today reports that Kyoto is encouraging convenience stores to close early, so as to reduce their carbon foot print.
But would they still be convenient if only open 7am to 11pm?
And what about all the other 24 institutions, like Pachinko parlours? I can’t see them closing early.
