It looks like Typhoon No. 16 is coming to Japan next week.
By the way, when typhoon information always flows in the weather forecast, the word that is often heard is "occurred in the Mariana Islands". Yes, most of the typhoons that come to Japan develop from tropical cyclones near the Northern Mariana Islands and become typhoons that move northward.
Therefore, many news typhoon track maps show that the current location is 000 km west-northwest of the Mariana Islands, as shown in the image below.
Even though it is a typhoon that has just been born, it can sometimes cause enormous damage to the islands of the Mariana Islands, so you must pay close attention to the typhoon.

"Living on the island of" Tamashii "-Record of Japanese immigrants on Tinian-" will be broadcast.
Before the war, Tinian Island was home to many Japanese immigrants to grow sugar cane. In the summer of 1945 during the Pacific War, a mighty US army landed and the Japanese army on the island was wiped out. As the US military approaches, Japanese immigrants are forced into group suicide one after another, and they have a spectacular experience of killing their close friends. And the anguish that the surviving family had for a lifetime. This program was created based on testimony, which can be said to be a will, by interviewing people with heavy memories for over 20 years. It's a painful and heavy content, but I hope you can see it in the sense of reaffirming the preciousness of peace.
Nagoya's largest festival, the Nippon Domannaka Festival, will be held for 4 days from 26th to 29th, and CNMI DOMANNAKA will participate in the video from Saipan, Northern Mariana Islands! We will deliver a healing traditional dance from the tropical mariana.

Changes to immigration control measures for the Northern Mariana Islands
Due to the increase in the number of infected cases of vaccinated persons, the immigration measures to the Northern Mariana Islands have been changed since August 20th. All travelers, with or without vaccination, are required to be quarantined at government-designated facilities.
Please see the information on the website of the Consular Office of Saipan for the changes regarding the epidemic prevention measures at the time of entry.
August 15th was the day of the 76th end of the war. On Saipan Island, as this day is celebrated every year, a memorial monument is being cleaned up in the hope of memorial service and peace under the auspices of the local Japanese Association.
This year, on August 14, the Central Pacific War Dead Monument and Okinawa Tower in the Mappi area, and the Japanese War Dead Monument in the Susupe area were cleaned.
In Mariana, in addition to 43,000 Japanese troops at that time, 12,000 civilians, including Japanese immigrants from Okinawa and other islanders, were victims of the war. While more and more generations are unaware that there is a memorial on the southern island, 3200 kilometers away from Japan, the end of the war has come again this year, praying for peace on this island as well as the Japanese people.
The Mariana Tourism Board works with the Northern Mariana Islands Covid-19 Task Force and government agencies to comply with health and safety guidelines, pay close attention to operations, and provide sustainable, safe and secure services for the future. We certify the facilities to be used and give two stickers as proof.
One is the Safe Travel Marianas program certification stamp. The other is the WTTC (World Travel and Tourism Council) Safe Travel Stamp.
Since the certification program started in June, 63 companies in Saipan, Tinian and Rota have cleared and certified strict standards, and the stores have the following stamps.
When you come to Mariana next time, please use the shop with this stamp.
