Posted in: 5 arrested over October mass brawl at Tokyo skyscraper restaurant See in context

yakuza celebrations for members that are freed from jail always attract rival gangs that were just waiting for payback. this happens in real-life, and makes for very entertaining movies

a bit late for the raid, only an idiot would still have evidence of their crime after months and months of publicity about bid-rigging

maybe that's why J-economy ain't working: even the minister for economic revitalization is under Unification Church control

I really thought this was about potato chips, because of the Japanese potato crisis occupying most headlines these past few months

Posted in: Japan to raise COVID-19 hospital capacity 30% by end of November See in context

this makes tremendous sense. now that they have 20 cases per day in tokyo, now they will increase hospital capacity. it was not needed before, you know, when the pandemic peaked. i love japan, but your governments suck

Posted in: Kishida retains cabinet lineup; says Japan is in 'precarious' situation See in context

the guy just got into power, and the first things he says is that it's all bad, like blaming he inherited badness, and that it won't be his fault that it remains so.

Posted in: Japan considers vaccinating all 70,000 Tokyo Games volunteers See in context

sure, take your time, consider away, we're not in hurry. seems japan's health authorities are just stupid, or have their hands tied and it's all only about politics and not about health. that's the only possible explanation for "considering" protection or not.

muslim terrorists covered the skies above tel-aviv and other cities with rockets aimed at the civilian population. seems the anti-israel protest does not agree with israel defending itself against terrorism.

Posted in: In Tokyo, anarchy comes on two wheels See in context

this is such a great description of one of Japan's uniqueness! In Osaka it is typical in summer to see a beautiful young mother on her "mamachari", with her two kids, one in front and one behind her, holding an umbrella, happily talking on her cell phone cradled between neck and shoulder, and negotiating heavy traffic through busy avenues.

Posted in: Health ministry panel to make decision on Moderna vaccine on May 20 See in context

This is a real fail for the Japanese authorities. They put all their money on the Olympics hoping the virus would go away. Had all that money and effort gone to vaccine development and testing, so many lives would have been saved. And still they prioritize showcasing the country's greatness with the Olympics, no matter what the cost to life saving.

Posted in: Officials dealing with COVID-19 working nearly 400 hours overtime a month See in context

very low productivity in burocratic environments, i.e. "officials". overtime mostly shows loyalty. i wonder what would happen if some of them decide to take a break and go to cancun.
