From friends in Japan.
It’s difficult to overstate how awesome this is. Here’s a little context:
- The US population is about 300 million, Japan’s population is about 130 million
- AA membership in the US is estimated to be around 1 million, Japan’s AA membership is estimated to be around 5000, with another 5000 to 10,000 in Danshukai.
- People in AA actually use pseudonyms in AA for fear of employers and family finding out.
