Posted in: Man arrested for robbing elderly woman in her apartment See in context

I feel terrible for the woman. I really hope she recovers. It is a shock that this could ever occur in Japan because my understanding is that Japan, along with neighboring Taiwan is one of the safest countries in the World for anyone regardless of shape, size and gender. A total shock that this could occur in Japan.

There is NEVER an excuse to commit any kind of crime especially violent crime as the goal is for all of us to live in the image of God. That being stated, I am curious, if Masafumi Kurimoto has a job, why does he need to rob anyone!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

It is an extreme shock that this sort of thing could occur in Japan especially in a rural area in Hokkaido. It is understood that Japan like Taiwan is one of the safest countries in the world all the way from Wakkanai, Hokkaido, Japan to Naha, Okinawa, Japan where one has less worried regardless of gender as to being a victim of street crime.

Hopefully those two men will be subject to fill consequences and the woman will fully recover.

I feel terrible for the woman. I hope she recovers physically and mentally. That 14 year old parasite should receive the firing squad. The World is a better place without parasites.

It is a shock that this could ever occur in Japan especially in a small town in the middle of nowhere. It is understood that Japan like Taiwan is one of the safest countries in the World where one does not have to always look over their shoulders. I would think in a small town like Nemuro and Wakkani, something like this could never occur.

I really hope the woman is okay.

Posted in: Japan to ease quarantine rule to 3 days for business travelers See in context

And the quarantine for vaccinated residents will end... never”

14( +25 / -11 )

If they are concerned about Covid (assuming for one second it REALLY exists) then every traveler regardless of vaccination status should be tested. It is not fair to judge/target someone if they are not vaccinated. Everyone’s body is different. What if someone gets the vaccine because they are fearful of being grounded from traveling and then suffer a serious side effect???!!! Then what?????????????????????????????????????

A vaccine is NOT going to make anyone safer.

It is extremely unfair fir someone who is vaccinated to get special privileges

If restrictions are lifted for tourists, it should be all tourists regardless of vaccination status.

Japan please do not turn into Australia, New Zealand, Canada or certain cities in the USA such as New York City. Grounding someone like a kid who is misbehaving because they choose not to be vaccinated is unjust and extremely tyrannical. Please Japan, you are better than such places.

Posted in: Japan keeps tourism freeze despite plunge in virus cases See in context

When Japan or any country eventually opens, it should be open to any law abiding traveler regardless of inoculation status. Nobody should be restricted just because they do not feel comfortable taking a risky vaccine in which we have limited knowledge. Besides, if one can catch Covid (assuming it even exists) with an inoculation, it does not seems like this questionable vaccine is beneficial at all. Colin Powell does and he was vaccinated.

Japan please do not turn into Canada, Australia. New Zealand or certain areas of the United States such as New York City. In New York City, if one cannot work or go to a restaurant without being inoculated, that sounds like abuse to me.

If everyone would just remove the shades, one would realize what is really going on. Extremely scary.

Posted in: Japan to begin trials of COVID-19 vaccination proof at eateries See in context

OKYO

The Japanese government said Monday it will begin conducting trials this week using “proof of COVID-19 vaccinations or negative test results” at eateries in preparation for another possible wave of infections this winter. If I read this correctly, it means this vaccine is NOT required. One works taker the rest instead. So it looks like someone who does not prefer to be or cannot be vaccinated can go out to eat after all.

This is extremely disturbing as to what is going on with this Vaccine nonsense. No one should be denied rights because they do not feel comfortable taking a vaccine. Japan, PLEASE DO NOT turn into Canada or certain cities in the United States like New York City. Not being allowed to work, go to a restaurant due to not being vaccinated is extremely terrible, sad and disturbing!!! Not being able to work or eat is crossing boundaries and can cause someone to be in life threatening situations. Do many not realize how disturbing this is.??..

Oh and Someone who is vaccinated can get colds and spread them. Colon Powell moved on and he was VACCINATED.

The Magic Power or this covid vaccine or should I say this o“Magic Wand”.

It is time to end all this vaccine status nonsense for eternity.

The way we stay health is nutrition, exercise, positive and lean on God to get us through our struggles.

This is Terrible. I thought Japan is one of the safest countries in the world along with China, Taiwan, Singapore etc regardless of Gender, Size etc where one does not have to constantly look over his or her shoulder and/or carry mace. Do tourists need to be concerned and bring mace with them????!

This parasite along with any other parasite who engages in these callous acts should be subject to the firing squad with no questions asked. It is time to take back the country and be less concerned about a parasite like this and be concerned about the victims’ health and well being.

What if someone wants something basic like a studio with one full bathroom. Can they get that in Tokyo for 44,028.08 JPY a month or less.

Posted in: 19-year-old arrested over hotel stabbing that left woman dead, man injured See in context

Extremely disturbing. This article makes me extremely sad and extremely outraged just reading it. The act alone is disturbing and what is even more disturbing is that it was done to an innocent woman who did absolutely nothing to him. This kind of disturbing act is never justified although it could be slightly logical if this kind of thing was done by a victim of a schoolyard bully who was bullied every single day and every single second non-stop for over a decade. We all know Michi Mamoriya did absolutely nothing to this trash. She was a decent individual just doing her job to make ends meet. It is extremely unforunate that Michi Mamoriya crossed paths with this trash. Extremely sad R.I.P.

I do not understand/This makes absolutely no sense. This is an absolute shock!!!!!!!!!!!!! Isn't Japan a safe country with extremely rare cases of street crime essentially with the same extremely low rate of street crime such as Mainland China and Taiwan?????? I thought Japan (as well as Mainland China and Taiwan) is a place where one can let their guard down regardless of gender and size, walk around alone in an extremely dark back alley and never have to be concerned about becoming a victim of street crime.??!!???!!

Posted in: More young Japanese look to Marx as pandemic, climate crisis magnify economic inequalities See in context

The Japanese Government should provide an Unconditional Universal Basic Income of at least 5450750 yen (equivalent of $50,000 United States Dollars) to all of its citizens. Further, the amount should always be adjusted for inflation. If an Unconditional Universal Basic Income went into effect, it would enable anyone who ever falls on difficult times to have a cushion. The Unconditional Universal Basic Income would be the equivalent of throwing someone who is struggling to swim a life jacket. The Unconditional Universal Basic Income should also begin in neighboring countries like Taiwan, Mainland China and so forth and maybe even become a Worldwide Cushion/Life Jacket for everybody.

It is time to get rid of this whole nonsense with classes. There should be no Upper, Middle and Lower Class. Society would function much better as a Classless society. Everybody and Everything should be all equal. It would work much better if wealth and other necessities were distributed evenly. No one should ever be denied food, shelter, water, money and fun. No-one should have more than anyone else as everybody's needs are equally important. No one is special and/or better than anyone else. We are all human and live and breath in the same World. Governments should make sure that everyone's needs are being met and as a result, Universal Basic Income for Eternity would be a milestone and also a cornerstone for making sure everybody's needs are being met.

This is really infuriating how we have individuals who live a lavish lifestyle by owning multiple mansions in various cities/countries, multiple luxurious vehicles, buying designer goods that are necessary and then we have individuals who cannot afford a room. It is time to get rid of indulgence and learn to live with less. Why does someone need multiple gigantic mansions???? Why can't they just be satisfied with a basic/ordinary home????? Rather than having extreme wealth and extreme poverty, it is much better if everyone had their fair share instead so everyone can live a high quality life. Universal Basic Income for Eternity would at least allow for everyone to have the basic necessities and have fun, not be denied any chances in life whether it be professionally or personally. Basic Income would also ensure no one ever gets rejected socially.

In conclusion, if Unconditional Universal Basic Income went into effect for eternity, everyone would be able to sleep better at night, have less stress and therefore have a better quality of life.

Posted in: Suspect arrested for robbing man on Osaka street See in context

It is a shock that this kind of thing could ever occur anywhere in Japan. Whether one is in Tokyo, Osaka, all the way up North in Wakkanai, Hokkaido or down South in Naha, Okinawa, my understanding is that Japan is extremely safe and safety regarding street crime is top notch!?!? It is understood that Japan is one of the safest countries in the world along with other neighboring countries such as South Korea and Taiwan. An ABSOLUTE SHOCK!!

Employed or not, crime is never justified, but out of curiosity, if the suspect has a job, why does he need to rob someone????????????

Posted in: Japan to introduce 'vaccine passports' for international travel See in context

"Kono had previously voiced concern that requiring certification of vaccination could lead to discrimination against people unable or unwilling to receive shots due to potential allergic reactions or side effects.

To allay such worries, the passports will also list negative results from polymerase chain reaction and antigen tests, the sources said."

General Question:

When everything returns to normal, if someone wants to vacation in Japan for one to two weeks , will they be REQUIRED to get this Covid Vaccine?? In other words, does this mean that someone who does not get this Covid Vaccine is going to be banned for eternity from visiting Japan (as well as other Countries in the Far East such as Mainland China or Taiwan)?? I need absolute clarification on this.

Thank you very much.

Posted in: Japanese survey ranks which prefectures people want to move back to the most See in context

Interesting. Every prefecture has its own unique qualities. Out of curiosity, what about Okinawa?

With the most significant drawback being that the mass transit is not the same like Tokyo for instance, I would think Okinawa offers many excellent, fantastic, outstanding, awesome, Kool features. Highest availability of Beach weather throughout the year, Beach Atmosphere, Being by the Seaside, cost of living is less than most areas, laid back culture, one of the most unique areas of Japan, many choices whether someone wants to live in Naha City, Okinawa City, Itoman, etc, my understanding is that Okinawa has many video arcade venues, and also relatively close to Taiwan if someone wants to take a short weekend or even a long vacation to Taiwan (I understand Taiwan is also a excellent country like Japan).

Interesting how being a Baker Shop owner is a popular ambition in Japan. I observed that bakeries and/or small pastry shops/cake shops are extremely popular in Japan. For instance, those crepe meals with all different flavors/toppings are extremely delicious (sugoku oishii desu). Also, being a bake shop owner is an excellent ambition (just make sure not to eat the profits).

Man should get at least eight ("80") years in prison with no chance of parole.

Feel sorry for these women who are victims as no one deserves such treatment. Further, the Far East/East Asia whether it is China, Korea, Taiwan or Japan is an excellent region in many different categories from A to Z. Why would anyone want to emigrate to a Western Country from the Far East. While no where is perfect, The Far East/East Asia is one of the best if not the best region(s) in the world to call home due to many reasons especially lower crime than the West.

I hope this is temporary and not permanent. What if someone wants to visit Japan for there week vacation in 2021????? I guess they cannot?.?.?

It is more obvious day by day that this “COVID-19/CORONAVIRUS”is a fraud/hoax that was orchestrated by various world governments, corporations and pharmaceutical companies including but not limited to the following reasons:

A. Fear Mongering;

B. Loss of Privacy;

C. Getting everyone comfortable with draconian measures

D. Normalizing massive and unemployment;

E. Money Making Scheme ( various world governments, corporations and pharmaceutical companies must be making a fortune from these vaccines).

What is dangerous is the following:

A. Losing Ones Job;

B. Losing Ones Livelihood;

C. Extreme Hysteria;

D. Communal Hostility;

E. Extreme Isolation; 

F. Losing Hope;

G. Losing Soul;

H. Losing Freedoms;

I. Loss of community friendliness; and 

J. Mental Health Stress.  

This whole situation has caused the above factors. We should not have to feel lucky to have a job or those other things. 

This is terrible the majority do not realize the consequences of this situation and what is being taken away.

Many are losing their businesses (for instance it is sad that landmark video arcade in Akihabara is out of business)

many are losing their jobs or having a reduced work schedule;

Freedoms are on thin ice (since when it is the government or our employers business as to where someone goes or what someone does on their leisure time??????!!!!!!!!) (since when is it okay to be hostile to someone for questioning anything or disagreeing?????!!!!!!!!)

Why can we freely criticize every other industry but not big pharma and va((ines?

Science changes all the time, it is never settled!

Doctors used to recommend cigarettes! If facebook and instagram existed during that time, we would be banned for saying statements contradictory to the 'official narrative' of doctors, 'science' and big tabacco.

Doctors/media: 'The science is settled; Cigarettes are great for your health!'

Conspiracy theorists: 'Beware everyone, Cigarettes are causing cancer!'

FACT CHECKED and conspiracy theorists' opinion BANNED!

"

Agree. It becomes more obvious every day if not every second that this whole thing is a Fraud/Hoax that was Orchestrated by various World Governments and the Pharmaceutical Industry to make money, fear mongering and to take away freedoms in a subtle way. Really sad how this new normal is deemed okay by most. The reason is most are sheep, they believe what they are told and fail to question and/or formulate their own analysis. No one realizes how terrible this new normal is.

Posted in: Nearly 400 infected with new coronavirus variant found in Japan See in context

Extremely interesting how when everything is improving suddenly there is a new kind of virus.....Suddenly a new variant.  In every country worldwide on a daily basis it is becoming more and more obvious that this COVID-19 was man made or a fraud/hoax which was orchestrated by various world governments to cause fear mongering, control citizens, make citizens live in fear and to take away freedoms and our souls. This COVID-19 also seems like a money making scheme. Various individuals including but not limited to various world governments, pharmaceutical companies and other high stakes players are making a fortune out of this whole “COVID-19 “ and now this Vaccine. Just like various Wars in history someone is making a fortune.

This is extremely sad because many are losing their businesses, jobs and now many if not all cannot see family.

Someone says limit your business hours or shut down your business, do not leave your home, you have to disclose extremely sensitive information like medical records and/or l you have to disclose your travel destinations the answer would be no and these are extremely invasive measures. All someone has to say is “COVID-19” as well as utilizing other fear mongering strategies and then everyone complies.             This is extremely interesting how with COVID-19 the numbers are high then when individuals restrict themselves the numbers go down. Now when the situation improves and everyone goes back to living their regular lives suddenly the COVID-19 numbers go back up. Extremely interesting. It is also extremely interesting how this “COVID-19 “ is also in North Korea and Antarctica. What is dangerous is the following:

A. Losing Ones Job;

B. Losing Ones Livelihood;

C. Extreme Hysteria;

D. Communal Hostility;

E. Extreme Isolation; 

F. Losing Hope;

G. Losing Soul;

H. Losing Freedoms;

I. Loss of community friendliness; and 

I. Mental Health Stress.  

This whole situation has caused the above factors. We should not have to feel lucky to have a job or those other things. 

This is extremely sad because many are losing their businesses, jobs and now many if not all cannot see family.  Certainly seems like no accident and that this COVID-19 was man made and or a fraud/hoax committed by various world governments and pharmaceutical companies for money, fear mongering control,etc. 

The only one who can truly save us is God.

Does not make sense. 17 years does not get justice. Eighty (“80”) years to one hundred (“100”) years in solitary confinement with no chance of parole or alternatively the death penalty such as the firing squad or being crucified would be the right consequence. We need to discontinue feeling sorry for the criminals and lobby for the victims. Forget the criminals’ rights how about the victims’ rights??? This man should not have any rights as he is just garbage. I am sure my post is going to be removed because too many feel sorry for the criminal and could care less about the victim.

It is time for All the United States of America Military from A to Z to leave Okinawa (and the rest of Japan) for eternity. The United States of America Military is of NO BENEFIT to Japan and more of a hazard. Aside from what is discussed in this article, the United States of America is placing Japan especially Okinawa at risk by having stations in Japan because if any other country has an issue with the United States of America, they are bringing Japan especially Okinawa into the equation. As a result, Japan especially Okinawa needs to be distant from the United States of America military.

It would allow for safer conditions and a better quality of life especially in Okinawa. I understand Okinawa is a beautiful area to live and visit. Nevertheless, Japan especially the beautiful prefecture of Okinawa would have off the charts improvement of quality of life with the United States Military being gone for eternity.

As a result, for Japan especially Okinawa to have a significant improvement of the quality of life, All the United States of America Military from A to Z to need to vacate Okinawa (and the rest of Japan) for eternity immediately.

The goal is not war, the goal is Universal Tranquility.

Something needs to change so Japan can be as safe as Singapore, Korea, Mainland China, and Taiwan and go back to the way it is as the Edo era and/or the Japan of the 1970s and 1980s.

Are you claiming that Singapore, Korea, Mainland China, and Taiwan safer than Japan? Any figures to back that up? (And discount whatever the mainland China CCP government says, please).

Yes, I am.

I feel like nothing like this or this article:https://www.tokyoreporter.com/crime/tokyo-man-stabbed-woman-with-awl-at-100-store/

ever occurs in Singapore, Korea, Mainland China or Taiwan. Do tourists need to be concerned????!!!!!!

I am not speaking of something such as stealing a candy bar from a convenience store or a personal argument. It is NOT an insult to Japan as it is a beautiful country. It is just that something has to change to stop these sadistic incidents because for some reason they occur in Japan and NEVER in Singapore, Korea, Mainland China or Taiwan.

I feel extremely sorry for this woman. Nobody should ever have to go through Terrible trauma. This woman needs justice right now.

This man should receive eighty (“80”) years in prison along with being caned or alternatively the firing squad.

I thought Japan is a safe country just like Singapore, Korea, Mainland China, and Taiwan and nobody regardless of gender has to worry about being a victim of violent crime. I feel violent crime of this sort was unheard of in Japan until this last decade and unheard of in the other four East Asia countries. What happened to the Japan especially the Japan of the 1970s, 1980s and the Edo era where something like this never occurred??????

Something needs to change so Japan can be as safe as Singapore, Korea, Mainland China, and Taiwan and go back to the way it is as the Edo era and/or the Japan of the 1970s and 1980s.
