The wise man of Osaka has a great piece on Japan’s smoking rules. The comparison of the smoking warnings is spot on.
When will the Government of Japan, and other Asian countries, catch up with the West and start being more pro-active on smoking – rather than just banning smoking on the street?!

    Just a little word on that…
    Since the public smoking ban here (London), just stepping outside the pub to get some fresh air, or just enjoy the good weather has almost become a hazard (for your lungs!). Stepping out with all the smokers standing ourside it almost seems worse than entering a pub on a wet weathery day with all the “addicts” inside, prior to the smoking ban (not to mention what it would be like for all the innocent bypassers just walking on the street).

    So I guess that with all good things comes a little trouble..
