No penalties ?? What a joke! I think that it's more mendokusai to talk in English to foreigner who attend the event.

Why not simply ban the event if that's a problem??

No english?? So i assume those who don't pay are coming from China, Korea, and Thailand?

I also never took an insurance, but now when i travel with my kids and wife i always take on when i book my trips.

And honestly +20-30€ to be at ease when you travel that has no price!

Make those who doesn't pay a permanent ban from Japan that's all!

In Belgium it's 22-24 hours a week for secondary teachers

The problem in Japan is that teacher are considered salarymen, have to be early at school same thing to go late from school and they are responsible of their student, even after school hours!

And the PTA who rule the school, Low salary, students that don't care about the lessons at school they go anyway at juku to enter there choosen high school or uni..

Anyway good luck to those teachers and the education ministry decision will change nothing, we see it with the labour law about overwork in other companies.

Posted in: 120 interviews later, photographer releases book about Japanese ‘hafu’ identity See in context

Please stop usong the term “Hafu”. It’s racist, discriminatory and by the way the Japanese people are using it, sounds like half-breed or half Japanese, but in a bad way.

Oh God please not another SJW!! Stop finding nonsense in words used by millions of poeple and it's even not your language!

Just accept a culture and his language!

Hafu means only poeple born from different nationalities. When i lived in Japan i often said that i was hafu because born from 2 different cultures.

Nothing discriminatory or racist behind these words. It's only of how you use these words.

And let's be honest a White hafu will always have less problems then a Black one...

Posted in: Sexual harassment toward job-hunting students by alumni widespread See in context

It'll never change, they'll first need to change the sempai/kohai system. 

How many times did i heared that a girl didn't had a chose to have intercourse with her sempai because it'll be 'mendoukusai' if she refused to him. 

And i think that some women know that to have a chance to get a job you have to give something in return... 

Sorry but it goes in both sides! 

If it's wasn't so easy to have intercourse then Jguys would stop using this method

Posted in: Job-hunting season begins for Japanese university students See in context

Japan interview system is strange as hell!

I remember doing interviews for an internship and at first I didn’t know why I failed. And I knew that in fact I did interviews like here in the EU.

So I tried to act like a Japanese will do, being not too friendly not trying to make some jokes. I just answered by saying my university is one of the top, that I have worked for top companies before. And it worked well!

I heared sugoi sugoi and got my internship.
