I meet many Brazilian Japanese who described their identity crisis as a hell where they are not accepted as part of any of their 2 cultures.
"I grew up in Brazil being called JAPA, JAPONES, SUSHI EATER, even teachers would mock me by saying: OPEN YOUR EYES so you can get it right. Wake up... Then after growing up, decided to come to Japan to finally be part of at least one of my nations. As I arrived here, people called me ”BUTAJIRU JIN", Brazilian! They kept asking me if I new how to dance samba, how good I was at playing soccer. So, I have dual nationality, but I am not accepted as part of them."
"Even though I was born in Japan, do not speak a single word of Portuguese, neither had been to Brazil, I've grown up being called BRAZILIAN. That's because my parents were born in Brazil to Japanese immigrants who went there in the 60's."
Even though Brazil is a multicultural country, it's normal there to divide everything (just like in any other nation)
And just another thing to remind you guys: Brazil is huge, "Feijoada and samba" are not part of every Brazilian's life.
Being white in Brazil is also a reason to be treated as a "tourist" wherever you go.

Oh man! It seems that some Japanese males have a huge problem in approaching to females. This is the result of growing up in a society where "Woman doing her make up in the train is something BAD, Men checking out some erotic photos inside the trains is just normal "

Two irresponsibles, the mother that didn't pay attention to her child and the old man that didn't pay 100% attention. This is what happens when people forgets that we are surrounded by DEATH.

How Ironic... US, responsible for the nuclear attack over Japanese civilians, still keeps tons of nuclear weapons, is allied to another nuclear terrorist( Israel) and now is pushing the whole world against Iran because they are trying to develop their country. Always US trying to play the big boy, giving poor excuses to lot other nations. ww2, Vietnam and Iraq are the examples. We are tired to know that OIL is the reason. And now, We'll need to pay more because of their dirty game.

1, Why thanks US? So many other countries has sent so much help to Japan. 2, Thanks with AKB? This is more likely an insult. 3, I would like to say "thank you US", because of your attitude I am paying higher bill on my gas. BTW, Gifts we don t give back, so keep AKB for you.

It is just sad has in Japan such a kind of rubbish can go this far. When people have a easy and superficial life style, they start to love any crap as their life is meaningless."
If it is a young girl that likes, it is OK. But males over 12y old, there are some areas badly screwed on their brains.

So many dumb people talking about "going to IRAN". Hypocrisy! If is there someone to blame about NUCLEAR WEAPONS is USA, The only country in the world with a nuclear attack against poor civilians on their records.
About this boat, good Job, but I don't think that some dozens of people in a boat will make some real difference. Perhaps changing things inside Japan first would be a good start.

Oh man, this thing is really annoying. So many real problems around the world and these Asiatic countries are still arguing about sex slavery dated more than 50y ago. Why is so hard to Japan to make a ceremony, call the Sex Slaves and say SORRY,
China and Koreas: Why charge these things from a whole nation? I am sure that the people responsible for that are already dead. Why should the new Generations say sorry for something that is not their fault?
Same as If a Japanese meet a American girl in the street and say: Hey, you American, my family died because your nuclear bombs, say sorry now or I am going to be very upset with you.

Why Japan should fear a country that never has done any bad things around here?!
What is funny is that THE ONLY COUNTRY TO USE NUCLEAR BOMBS( right here in Japan for those who doesn't know) now is thinking that can rule the world, setting sanctions in a country that doesn't have any link with USA.
Israel, showing the reason why some nations hate Jews.

I agree with everything that netninja said. The solution for this is just change their uniform. Mangas, movies and animes, all of them always showing scenes of sexy school girls flashing their bottoms. Of course your are going to grow a pervert.
Why the hell these girls are wearing mini skirts without even wearing some kind of shorts under? Any one is going to look at, even accidentally, as their wear sometimes like hookers.

Few days ago She was just known as a drugs addicted, broken star and etc. She dyes and people comes with the same old things: "I always loved her. She was a amazing person " and bla bla blaaaa bla. Same was for the stoner Winehouse.

I believe that the government knows each one of the key members, actually this is obvious, as in Japan is easy to find these kind of people. But it seems that here in Japan the things take always long time to happen, government thinks a billion times before any real good action. They should start by arresting the new members, that annoying guys and their noisy bikes.

This sounds perfectly to me. I hope in the near future to not see smokers. To smoke cigarette is bad to you and specially for those around you.
What "ORIGINALUSERNAME" said in the first post of on the top of this page match exactly with my thoughts. I lost the count of times I ve seen parents bringing their toddlers to the smoking area in the shops, or the hole family in the smoking area in the restaurants. Please Japanese Government, let s clean Japan.
I am sure that so many people avoid going out to izakayas and pubs just because they ll need to be "smoked".

Posted in: Around the world, political leaders trying to cope with the coronavirus pandemic are making calculations centered around the question: How many deaths are acceptable, as weighed against millions of jobs lost and trillions of dollars of economic output foregone? What's your view?
