It still won’t dissuade young people from going to Harajuku.

I don't think the US can survive without all of the talented and monied Japanese university students that are currently waiting for their results from applications to US universities. The school year is at a close and many of the best students are expecting to move to the US to start school in September. Can the US afford the brain drain? With a numbskull as president, that might not be a big concern. A less intelligent public is easier to control.

Who said Italy should be on the list? You do realize that Italians are mostly caucasians, right? Italy is a solid western country by any measure. I find it very unlikely that Italians would be banned from entering the USA anytime soon.

I guess in the longrun, this ban will help people. The US will end up worse than any other country due to their mismanaged healthcare system and the attitudes they've shown in dealing with disasters in the past.

Beauty. This is a symbol of our best, kids. None of you out there are probably even near the skill set that these atheletes have. Oh, and that includes me. LOLzy.

Posted in: KFC opens all-you-can-eat-and-drink buffet restaurant in Tokyo See in context

Fried chicken. That's the best. KFC Japan does the chicken way better than in North America too. It's nice and crispy, cooked the perfect length of time, as opposed to the slop you get elsewhere. $20 for lunch though... Hm... Not only that, but it's timed, so you're going to feel rushed trying to get your money's worth. It's a nice idea to sit and have as much as you want, but for $20 trying to get your money's worth, rushing, you're just going to be a fat cow. After you're going to realize it would've made a lot more sense just to buy from the regular menu. You'd have your fill, pay less money, and have it specially made for yourself, not just eating out of the trough for the masses. Better yet stop by the grocery store, get some chicken and kara-age powder, and have some freshly fried chicken at home - hot, fresh, delicious, and a quarter of the price.

His opinion seems appropriate. Why bring attention to that issue? It's very embarrassing for Japan.

There is no doubt that Japan and Korea have a troubled past. Let's hope for the best for both countries.

Hm. I was schooled that eating while walking was a big no no in Japan. Now tax will promote doing so.

How are you supposed to do your job if there's a crying baby in the room? How is she supposed to do her job if she's taking care of a baby? It's not a matter of sexism. It's common sense, which apparently a lot of us don't have anymore. There's a pretty easy solution. Don't bring the baby. She had the baby, so she has to think of how to deal with that. She sounds like a baby herself.

Alec,

You are so off. Read more about what actually happened. The NDP were physically trying to obstruct democracy by not allowing a Conservative member to move. The PM went over to escort him, despite being from his opponent party. The NDP members refused to move. One of them got accidentally elbowed. The NDP leader just laughed at the childish antics his party pulled off. Trudeau was doing the right thing. I encourage you to find more information online about what happened before jumping to conclusions.

Posted in: Costco Japan’s bulgogi bake is a melting pot of deliciousness See in context

I tried the bulgogi bake last weekend. It is a mass-produced unhealthy, fattening hunk of "food" that resembles the frozen dinner pockets found in the freezers of the discount grocery stores found all over North America.
