Posted in: Law change lets Japanese police crack down on rule-breaking cyclists See in context

Someone cycling alone the Kagami River in Kochi doesn't need to wear a helmet or stop at every stop sign and it would be a huge government overreach if police started handing out blue tickets for ignoring minor infractions.

agree, when I first moved to Japan I loved the lack of “nonsense” that seems so pervasive back home. The lack of helmet enforcement was up there as a plus to me

I like Japan but I’m definitely wondering if it’s time to “get out while I can”. Any wealth of accumulated there is really going down the toilet and this is just more fuel for the tyre fire.

Posted in: Japan to boost child allowances to tackle falling birthrate See in context

Simply throwing money at the problem will not solve it. The main problem lays within career and financial security in the future

Physical security too. Climate change and wars. People are smart enough to no these things are actual existential threats to society. People don’t want to bring children into this.
