We are conducting a survey for our project about increasing suicide trends in Japan. We need Japanese or people who are well in the know about the Japanese culture and society.
Do reply our questions in the "Yes/No" format accompanied by a reason.
1. Would you be interested in a manga with a storyline that promotes anti-suicide (infused with soothing aromas that help calm the state of mind)?
2. Would you prefer to have a robot to care for your parents/grandparents? The robot is able to read emotions and give comfort/encouraging messages and even inform you/a family member when the 'victim' is spotted to be in distress, perhaps lightening the load of you taking care of you parents/grandparents while juggling work.
3. Do you think a vending machine that dispenses food that is scientifically proven to increase a person's "happiness" be effective in tackling suicide?
