Looks dreadful. The reason Ghibli is so successful is because of their aesthetics. This looks nothing like it. Also, another witch story ??? How origininal....

"Sagami said the family has agreed to give up the dogs and his group would look for foster homes for them after they got medical care."

Yeah...Sure...Considering how hard it is to adopt a dog here and how reluctant people are to adopt instead of buying a cute little puppy from one of these pet stores we see everywhere, that's more likely 164 dogs going for the gaz chamber.

"Wouldn't such high numbers be difficult to hide or misdiagnose in Japan?"

Well, I wonder why they would hide the numbers.... Remember this is a country where one must not lose face, where if you don't talk about an issue, then there's no issue.

"True, but it's still a very big difference from what has been reported/confirmed elsewhere, such as the U.S."

I agree, but again, it's all due to the lack of testing ! The situation in hospitals here is unbelievable ! When you see some people who haven't been tested that are still told they only have a cold or the flu and given the medication for that then sent home, you can but wonder about the accuracy of the figures.

Only 5 cases reported doesn't equal only 5 cases. Hospitals are still refusing to test most people who haven't been sick for less than 5 Days and they are refusing people who are supposedly infected. How can figures be accurate in these conditions ?

It's really hard blow for hard working businesses. But a lot of poorly managed businesses are also gonna use this opportunity to close and file for bankruptcy to avoid paying any of their debts.

Japan euthanizes 500.000 pets a year. The abuse starts in pet shops. Adopting a pet is beyond impossible here. This is all abuse and needs to change.

Posted in: What are the worst things about the first year working in a Japanese company? Survey investigates See in context

I worked 10 years for a japanese company t neer fitted in. I left on time, alwas. I said "no" when asked stupid things or given ridiculous deadlines. I watched people in endless pointless meetings ,one in particular where they spent an whole hour discussing the color of a stitching on a garment without anone wanting to make a decision).... 10 years witnessing ridiculous practices. Then one day, on lunch break, I was told my contract was cancelled and that I could leae that ery da. So I did. I didn't question it and was gone in an hour, while other staff members just wondered what was happening. Best thing ever ! I am my own boss now with my own business. Lare Japanese companies still live 50 years ago and they will never change. They will see the downfall of the japanese economy. Unless japan gives in an allows for a better immigration, these companies run by old men will eventually crash.

Posted in: Electric bikes gaining in popularity in Japan amid graying population See in context

Would e great to also see some legislation on how many people can be on a single bike because I've seen already a mom with a kid on the back seat, one on the front and one strapped to her front. Such an equipage weighs at least 100 kilos and shouldn't be allowed. Especially when most can't even be bothered to use their bell to signal themselves.

Suggestion for Abe to get some quick cash: post all those thousands of useless cops everywhere around bus crossings. No need for tax hike ! And then, keep an eye on those moronic moms on electric bikes with 2 or 3 kids who can't be bothered to slow down or use their bell !

Posted in: Woman arrested for slashing items in clothing store See in context

It happens a lot more often than what is reported. I worked for a clothing company and they would find slashed items reularl in arious store locations . People would use mostly those small eyebrow rasors . Saw a few on cctv. These people would only come once and never again so it makes it hard to find them.

Posted in: Most consumers to stay cashless when rebate program ends: survey See in context

Most shops are more than happy to get cash because

1) no commissions (3 to 4 % is still a lot a the end of the month)

2) less revenue to declare and easier to fraud

Posted in: Local gov'ts adopting ordinances for bicycle liability insurance over accidents See in context

The problem also lies in the fact that the regulations for riding bikes are very much non-existing and not even known by the police. I've been stopped by a policeman who told me I wasn't supposed to go in a designated lane if I wanted to turn. SO I did what he told me for a week. Then got stopped by another who told me I was doing it wrong. And then told me to do...what I had been doing in the first place. I went to ask a police station about bike lanes and if they were compulsory or if I was allowed to ride on the road. They looked very confused and I couldn't get a proper answer.

Posted in: Car hits, injures 3 children on crossing; driver arrested See in context

BS excuse. Here a traffic light turning yellow means people speed up and even after it turns red, you can usually see at least 2 cars speeding through. I have NEVER seen in 10 years a car being stopped by the police for going through a yellow or red light. Instead of rising taxes, just plant one of the thousands of useless police officers at random crossings !

Good ! Fast fashion is a poison to the world. People need to be more responsible and stop bying cheap clothes constantly. And when you think "I don't have anything to wear", it really means "I don't want to wear what I have". Change your habits!

Posted in: Why do Japanese recycle bins have two openings but dump everything into the same compartment? See in context

You'll find the same in some (not all) Starbucks trash cans asking you to separate plastic cups from paper cups. And Most staff , when told to re-use the same cup for that second 100 yen coffee will throw it away anyway. VERY irritating. I also found some bottle trash bins in a service area that had 4 different slots for plastic bottles, metal can , cup and plastic caps that all led to the same container .
