Posted in: Japan intervenes in currency market to weaken yen See in context

Amazing some people are getting excited over 79 Yen to the Dollar. That was the same rate people were complaining about in the summer. If it was at 134 yen to the dollar like when I came to Japan in 2002, that would be great. But as my boss but it, he was complaining about 134 because it was 282JPY=1USD in 1982...

The point is this is just a natural slide...Intervention looks great for the headlines but it is like taking a bottled water to fight a wild fire.

I don't like AKB48 but based on the success of music-based anime like K-ON, and the fact you see AKB48 EVERYWHERE I'm sure it will be popular.

This isn't a new story. NHK and one of the broadcasters in Kyushu did a report about this in mid-2009.

The guy's middle name is "Innocent"? Is that a proof-reading error or just the ultimate irony?

I noticed most of the "Japan is Evil" comments are being made by people that don't even live in Japan. You know some people in India that the same things about the American cattle industry and some Muslims may even say the same thing about eating pork.

Does Debito Arudou get paid every time his name is mentioned somewhere? I mean, yes he covered the story, however his involvement has little to do with the main narrative of this article. His involvement did not change the circumstances of this man's life so why bother naming him?
