Posted in: Japan’s ramen is too cheap; restaurants should raise their prices, famous soccer player says See in context

I already did not like Honda, but this statement is another one i put on dislike list .

He earns a lot and if he wants to pay 2000 yen than please do so, but mentioning prices should increase, he should consider people with less income than him.

Why they even consider free. Just pay for what you use. No country has free use of expressways. There is always another tax covering.

Fault on both sides here

Clearly you have no children.

An adult should never have an excuse doing this.

There are many situations this girl may feel pressured.

If she was your daughter you would never say this comment.

Posted in: Bookstores vanishing from Japan with fall in population See in context

This is not only happening in Japan.

A decrease in population is a just one of the factors.

There other reasons of the decrease l, such as:

Games, increase in prices, classes are slowly digitalizing, ebooks and internet.

I love reading but do not want to bring a heavy book when traveling. So ereader is the best option.

I always buy a new sim free mobile and use it 3-4 years. Buying a new mobile is pointless. It is expensive for just some incremental changes.

Simple rule no means no.

And serious asking for sex is a turnoff.

Try to make it special and create an atmosphere. People really need to learn what a relationship is.

Posted in: Japanese language school decertified over abuse of Vietnamese student See in context

My opinion of a joke is different from the japanese language school.

Anyway, taking away freedom from someone is basically kidnapping or obstruction from freedom. This school should be closed since it seems to be a normal joke.

Went back to Europe on August 13 through Kansai. The international departure was dead. Only 11 flights were in the information screen.

Going back to Japan on september so curious how the immigration will be like.

Posted in: Woman falls to death while rock climbing in Hyogo Prefecture See in context

I do a lot of outdoor sports including rock climbing, ice climbing and long trails.

Depending on how she fell a helmet may protect but 5 meters head down, no helmet can guarantee your life.

Last weekend i went to Fuji for the 6 time and saw many people unprepared. Especially a lot of people without helmet. Safety is important not only for falling rocks but more for falling and hitting your head on the sharp stones.

For those comments who cannot understand why people do do this kind activities, just don't ask. Everyone has a passion he or she enjoys. Some like some rush and other like reading.

Hiking is my passion and next week Fuji.

Anyway mist trails are marked bij signs or color rope markings. There are indeed cases there is no markings.

But i do hope people go prepared and using maps, such as yamap or old fashion maps.

Posted in: Philippines asks Japanese consumers to accept higher prices for bananas See in context


Today 07:03 am JST

Are most of the bananas in Japan from the Philippines? I’ve never really paid much attention because they all look and taste the same anyway. My guess is that Japan will not pay for the price increase and go with the Latin/ South American bananas instead

And you think that this will be cheaper? The freight cost has increased so getting those products from a long distance will cost more. Clearly you think to easily.

How about doing the same and allowing people into the country as well. The Japanese people going overseas are going to come back so there should be no difference between Japanese and non Japanese entering the country?

Japan citizens have priority. Same as any other country doing with their own citizens. Secondly Japan is a sovereign country with own laws. Many people here just complain on Japantoday without any consideration. People don't even check to immigration site were everything about entering Japan is described.

Today 07:51 am JST

Yeah I’ve never paid for Netflix. Always used somebody else’s account. And the only reason for paying Netflix is no advertisements. Why would I pay if I have to sit through commercials? And Netflix just dropped South Park so that’s a bummer. So I either have to pay for Disney + or Paramount + or Amazon Prime, which have no good series to watch anyway, just so I can watch a stupid cartoon show

Even complaining when you are not paying.

And don't worry soon subscription sharing will also not be possible.

Finally. If I can get back to japan I’m definitely off. I’m scared about the limited numbers of passenger arrivals here. 10000-20000 entrant from the whole world is only 30-60 planes from everywhere.

Unless you are not Living in Japan or group tour organisation you cannot enter Japan. So if you are one of the two above you can enter.

I go to Europe on August and no worries.

Why didn't they hold a trial in Indonesia? Why did the send him back to Japan? Now he is free?!

He is not charged in Indonesia but he will be arrested in Japan.

Also deportation means any future travels including other countries will be difficult.

Nothing current about a provision from 1898 haha

You are so funny (sarcastic)

The law is valid even if it outdated. To change a law a long process of approval need to be taken.

Teenage mother / wife and the guy is 35....

So it means he got married with a teenager which is illegal in japan.

Strange story but really awful if this is true about the children. To often children are treated bad because parents have other priorities.

Can people stop commenting without consideration. There are worldwide cases that women get pregnant without realizing it. Also nobody knows what situation this woman or mother of the woman are. In Japan you can have a house which has separation for families living together.

The quality of comments is declining a lot on Japan today.

All the replies indicate that other countries are so good. America for example how many immigrants die in immigration?

I hope government wins and that people respect the law of the country they stay in.
