Have you ever heard of “観光公害” or “over tourism”?
Osaka had 1,1114,000 tourists in 2017 and is expecting more people to come until Osaka Expo in 2025.
Recently, over tourism becoming our social problem as we have frictions between t tourists espacially bad manners in public.
If this lasts longer, Japanese people may restrict tourists, increase negative feelings to particular countries.
Osaka team tackle this problem by designing interactive manner book and website etc.
Yes, we already have millions of manner books and websites which only tell “do this ” or ”don’t do this” with no specific reasons.
Does this help people to understand our culture deeply? No, it wouldn’t.
Our goal is helping both Japanese and oversea people to understand each culture deeply together,
because it helps our future problems like super-aging society, immigrants and sense of diversity. It all relates.
So in this project, we will involve not only visitors and sufferers of bad manners but also children, adults, seniors and oversea students.

In reality, babies get changed three or four times in a day every day to keep up with cleanliness and provide comfort.
If you are or have been the parent of a baby, then you’re likely familiar with diaper disasters or messy shirts that can occur at unpredictable times.
What’s worse about those “horrible but cute attacks” is that stripping the baby can spread the mess even more –
Or maybe, it’s not worth the stripping because of just one messy patch on the entire shirt.
What’s more frustrating is that baby laundry is a never-ending task.
Each change of clothes goes together with the pile of other clothes for laundry later, which means more energy, water and electricity consumption.
Babies grow quickly so baby clothes will probably go unused after a few months and it won’t fit them anymore.
When you’re a new parent it’s understandable to think you will need to invest in a lot of baby necessities, but you don’t.
BAEDABEE – the mix-and-match wearable clothing line – comes with matching separates for baby onesies.
It’s smarter, more practical, easier and faster to get your baby changed.
It will save you money if you just get a wearable baby outfit for your baby, which grows bigger with add-ons (separates) to fit your growing baby.
This way, you can manage baby laundry and be environmentally friendlier along the way.
The BAEDABEE baby onesies are made more used baby clothes and are actually designed to help adults do better with diaper/messy situations.
And for the little ones, it is to keep them comfortable in their outfit at all times.
The BAEDABEE baby onesie is a loose-fitting, lightweight garment suitable for children from 12 months to 36 months.
It would feature snaps, elastic waistband, and soft Velcro at several places for easy switch up or down depending on individual needs.
