The coronavirus is weak by “Humidity” at 50%

By | Life in Japan, News, Society

Ten years ago there was the outbreak  of SARS coronavirus around the world. Then the researchers published the results of the weak point of the virus, which was “Humidity”

Many new researches began for this COVID-19 and Princeton university and University California Los Angels are researching and published the summary the following two points.

(1) COVID-19 stay for three hours in the air and stay for three days on the surface like plastic materials.

(2) COVID-19 will be inactive by 50% humidity and 22.22℃ temperature

This result means that COVID-19 virus is extremely infectious. On the other hand this virus has a weak point about humidity.

SARS coronavirus was inactivated below 1% in 2 days by 50% humidity. So the same result of research would be expected for COVID-19 virus, too.

It will be good to use a hot shower in the bathroom to make the humidity of bedrooms rise up.

I would like many of foreign expats customers to experience and enjoy life in Japanese culture and society. If you scratch a little deeper you will find Japan is really unique country in the world. International students have interests in Japanese language and culture to some degree. However foreign expats  customers’ purpose is business in Japan. So I am under the impression that foreign expats are not so interested in Japanese culture.

To tell the truth, this always makes me regret very much.

Japan is actually very unique country. Japan is very different from neighbour China and Korea.  There are very many differences between Japan and Europe and US, too.

Geographically Japan is an island which is separated from the Asian continent. This geographical conditions make the dead end where people cannot go through. Therefore people didn’t visit Japan from ancient times before the age of the airplane.

People in Sicily Island of Italy eat a fish dish, though European eat a meat dish. Sicily has a cuisine like people living in the East Asian region.  Sicily also isn’t conveniently accessible. So  culture peculiar to that region has been formed as well as Japan.  Portugal is not an island country, however Portugal has also an unique culture because of its geographical position in Europe.

Japan is extremely unique culture country compared to any other country in the world.

Please try to walk in cities, provinces,  rural communities. It would make you discover invaluable things for your life. It is surely a valuable experience. When you compare your mother country with Japan, Japan will be “the miller“. Then I believe you could obtain a deeper understanding of your own country. If you really don’t like Japan, it is very good. Either, however, will do just fine. For you to understand your country well, please experience Japan.

That’s all I wish for.


Perfect service package exclusive for foreign expats

By | Life in Japan, Real Estate

It must be a real estate company rich in experience for foreign expats’ relocation to Japan. General Japanese real estate agents cannot deal with Internationl expats’ relocation problems because of the language barrier and suchlike. Even if a realtor can speak English, it is not enough. He or she must  have professional skill for international expats. There are many international real estate companies in Tokyo. However the fact is, Dios is the only one company which can provide perfect package service exclusively for foreign expats who work in Japan. 

When Dios Co., Ltd provide perfect service package for expats, Dios is the landlord of your lease contract. Dios is the owner of all furniture and services. That is to say, Dios is your agent, your manager, and your landlord. This service cannot be provided by any other real estate companies in Japan. 

Hotels have a real estate, furniture, and services, but customers have no choice of locations. For example the Ritz Carleton hotel is located only in Nishi Umeda. Customers cannot choose an apartment closer to his or her work place, near kid’s school, or a green environment.  Customers don’t have the freedom to choose a high-rise apartment, a low-rise building, or a detached house with a garden. Dios can provide services like hotels and customers can have many options about locations. 

Our properties are not small like hotels, but large living spaces. So our properties are lower prices than hotels. Our services are more added values for expats, but have price competitiveness. Our more than 20 years experiences, skills and deep affection towards foreign people living in Japan can create these scheme of services. Dios is the only one company in Japan.
