Posted in: Allure of Japan's powder snow a growing danger as more tourists ski backcountry See in context

How much better was life without tourists?

It's good you don't' like money, social interactoins, an economy, jobs, maybe you can just lock yourself inside and let everyone else live their lives.

Posted in: Allure of Japan's powder snow a growing danger as more tourists ski backcountry See in context

There is no national data, but in the popular ski prefecture of Nagano, in all of 2019 some 22 people were involved in accidents in backcountry terrain outside designated resorts, none of them foreign. Last month alone, eight foreigners were involved in accidents in Nagano.

So 22 people were Japanese who were injured, the year prior and this year, there are 8 "foreigners" (queue the hysteria).

So it seems Japanese AND tourists are getting involved in accidents. So from this we can concluded that everyone likes to enjoy the back country regardless of religion, race or creed and therefore entirely negates the purpose of this article.

Whale meat was an affordable source of protein during Japan's undernourished years after World War II, with annual consumption peaking at 233,000 tons in 1962.

I know Japan is struggling economically but I didn’t realise Japan was in such a bad state people need to resort to whale meat again ?

Very few countries in the world give citizenship through jus soli. The standard world-wide is to NOT provide citizenship based on jus soli: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jus_soli

Japan is following the norm for this.

> Very few countries in the world give citizenship through jus soli. The standard world-wide is to NOT provide citizenship based on jus soli: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jus_soli

Japan is following the norm for this.

I think you miss my point. We’re not from a country that peope don’t want to migrate too, infact most Japanese people I know say they’d like to live there or at least visit.

I’ll be totally fine with heading back someday.

The actual point is if you’re country is facing “social dysfunction” due to a population collapse , it might be a good idea to you know…not follow the norm so you could…solve the problem which might have to involve some immigration / acceptance of white and black coloured people ?

If the population is about to collapse then an educated man might ask themselves, what’s left to protect ?

We’re having our first child here, it’s not welcome to become a citizen. We pay a lot of tax and I have a highly skilled visa.

Posted in: Gov't considers lifting anti-COVID recommendation to wear masks indoors See in context

NOBODY is listening to the advice given about not really needing to wear masks outdoors so what makes them think anybody will heed this advice?

Personally, I don't care what other people do, it's their business, what I look foward to is not looking like a puppy killer for not wearing a mask into a combini.

No, let's not go backwards, instead, let's develop more low emission ways to make concrete.

Currently living in a house ravished by subterranean termintes, the issue? The wood was explosed to soil by a crack in the concrete. Rammed earth is soil...

According to the Japanese news , the woman was a foreigner married to another foreigner.

Basically all non Japanese.

Did they reside in Japan ? Because there where you’d hope to get access to mental healthcare you might need before jumping in front of a train ?

The race of the people doesn’t really matter?

With mental health treatment in Japan still in the Dark Ages, we can expect more of this sort of thing for years to come.

I’d really like to understand why this is downvoted ?

Why bother reporting this anymore, no one cares, which is why the case numbers are going up. We all be good Japanese peoples and wear mask to work on train but still catch covid because we do nomikai and take mask off.
