If you think bagging a sushi kit on Amazon makes you a sushi chef, think again. There’s a lot more to it than rolling crab meat in rice and seaweed.

How Japan and Netherlands Down Drones

Although unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), or drones are easily available online and in stores, there are certain rules a pilot must follow before sending these aircrafts in the air.

Kimonos are of course the traditional Japanese robes that are usually reserved for special occasions.
