Posted in: What it’s like to experience reverse culture shock after leaving Japan See in context

I have been back in Australia now for about 6 months after spending over 6 years in Japan. While I do miss Japan on occasion, I am happier back here and feel I made the right decision. To me it is all about familiarity.....I found myself catching up on the news back home on a daily basis, keeping regular communication with family and friends, visiting Australia for a few weeks every other year. It made the transition easy by still being partly attached to my home country while living in Japan.

Don't mind my 12 inch bulge coming from my belly mum and dad, completely normal, nothing to see here. Morning sickness? I'm just eating too much.

They need to get to the root cause of this issue and it all falls back to the inhumane working hours and pathetically low salaries. This is the driving contributor to child abuse.

He once claimed that smoking does not cause cancer because he knows someone that smoked their whole life and didnt die because of cancer....no kidding. Funnily enough one of his big donors is American tobacco.

Posted in: Japan's household spending sags; jobless rate lowest in two decades See in context

It's simple, the economy is based on consumption, meaning you need people to spend. The problem is people need to have a livable wage to spend so guess what - people aren't spending. The people with all the money are sitting on it which is evident here:

Still, private consumption, which accounts for more than a half of Japan's GDP, remains lacklustre as cash-rich firms have been stingy with pay hikes.

The solution, increase wages and give people more time to spend.

They need to address the real issue people are not marrying in Japan and that is the ridiculous expectations on working hours. How you think old Kenji has any sex drive or willingness to go out and meet women after working 6 days in a row of 12 hour days?
