History isn't accurate.

Pages have been/will be rewritten.

Some says this, Some says that.

Some believes this, Some that.

It's about Now and Future.

Posted in: Extended Golden Week loses luster for working parents See in context

If Japanese can spare time for extra day off, their economy will go down

This means UK economy is far better with so many holidays taken in a year.

Spring (Mar - May) - 2 weeks

Summer (June - Sep) - 3 weeks

Autumn (Mid Sep - Nov) - 1 week

Winter (Dec - Feb) - 2 weeks

Extra Season/Festival - 1 week

This is the almost perfect holidays.

But this depends upon people according to the season they prefer

9-10 weeks Holidays in a year is good enough for yourself and family.

It's all because of customer service.

they do need to make new shape, new model but mostly they need to check how the customer service are shown in UK and make sure the staff deal every customer equally.

What is happening in Britain is that the European staff working for Japanese or other Asian companies are not giving good customer service which they do it on purpose so that the European companies can overtake them. It's a slow poison.

Posted in: Man arrested for stealing antique jeans worth over ¥150,000 See in context

If high class celebrity wears that even for a fit, the price goes even higher.

But if normal people like u wears just for fitting, the price goes down

Then it'd go on sale, people flock and that's when u make a profit.

Posted in: Abe mum on reports he nominated Trump for Nobel Peace Prize See in context

He knows what to do i.e his position is above u. But if people don't agree and keep bashing on him, why don't u try to become prime minister or president and prove that u can do better? U'll also end up in same sinkhole with full of hatred words just like yours.

Come on, try! What'ch u waitin' for? Or Keep writing the same stuff?

Posted in: NHK fee collector leaves threatening notes on people’s doorsteps See in context

Japanese channels are really good, but still not better than the HK channels hat were shown in the 90s.

NHK has been helping poor developing countries by making good documentaries and donating it with real help in action as well.

So better to pay on these than Netflix or Apple.

Remakes after Remakes, that's what Americans can do.

If Asians (Japan and South Korea) remake, they do 2/10 ratio in a year.

But Americans do about 5/10 ratio a year

Plus the main thing about remakes is that Americans make it worse but Asian does it quite well remake.

Posted in: Trump makes his case for Nobel Peace Prize; says Abe nominated him for it See in context

So all the people who got/clicked (+) are the hero sides of the story and the ones who received (-) are the villaines?

But what good Obama did to the Americans and even the world? Just smooth heroic words without any action like every main hero character of an American movies?

And adult people cheering and clapping like kids....

Do u even know how tough it is to even arrange a meeting with Mr. Kim? Mr. Trump did with a click!

He might not deserve a prize but at least a good praise.

For such a long haul flight, all seats should be business class (prices might be higher for economy lovers but hey it's business class for 20+ hours)

No need for weird innovation that will later cause hidden trouble. Just make it simple.

Because they keep playing until they cannot move their most of their fingers.

Posted in: 3 areas in Japan to bid to host casinos; many others reluctant: survey See in context

Locals get fees, Foreigners get free.

On their soil. Doesn't make sense.

In UK, it's better to play lottery than going casinos or sports bettings.

Simply spend £8 a week (£4 on Wednesday, £4 on Saturday), Total £32 a month, that's like £1 a day for charity plus Hope.

One Day, One Day....I will....

Posted in: Kotatsu foot-warmers still a fixture in Japanese homes See in context

Insulating the house is dangerous to body, it absorbs some sort of chemicals through air.

So this traditonal heating is healthly preferred in Japan, however On-Sen is always on the top.
