    10% Consumption Tax

    消費税10%


    On October 1, 2019, the consumption tax in Japan was raised from 8% to 10%.
    10月1日、日本で消費税が8%から10%に引き上げられました。

    Originally, the rising tax to 10% was scheduled to be implemented in 2015, but it was postponed twice, and it was finally raised this year.
    もともとは2015年に10%になる予定でしたが、二度にわたり先送りされ、今回ようやく10%になりました。

    There are pros and cons to this raising consumption tax, but I do not care really much.
    増税に関しては賛否両論ありますが、私はどちらでもよいと感じています。

    Because the consumption tax related food and drink are out of the tax increase — I mainly spend money on them in my current life.
    なぜならば、現在の私の主要な消費である飲食料品は、増税の対象外だからです。

    According to TV news, many people bought large home appliances such as refrigerators and washing machines before the consumption tax increased.
    増税前には、冷蔵庫や洗濯機などの大型家電を買おうとする人が多くみられたようです。
