Aso and Abe will never connect with the ordinary working man and woman who have to pay out most of their earnings in taxes, fees and insurance. People work because they have to.

Posted in: Kintaikyo Bridge: One of Japan's most iconic bridges with surroundings that cater to your sweet tooth See in context

I live near here.

The bridge has been rebuilt twice in the past 20 years, once for repairs due to wear and tear, and once completely after being destroyed by floods.

Try to go early morning or in the evening, as it's free to cross over it then.

Some good historical places to visit on the opposite side to the town, and a great place to walk and be with family.

Posted in: Abe cabinet support rate falls to 47.6% amid pension system controversy See in context

except for the 40 million Japanese- included myself -that voted for Abe.

40 million out of a population of 127 million doesn't represent the sentiment of all the people. Abe is as much use as a chocolate fire guard. Aso is just an idiot who should be put out to pasture.

I'm white and proud of it!

I have white furniture.

White computer tables.

White cupboards.

White shirts.

White fish.

White wine.

Seriously, people need to stop being so damn sensitive and using race in everything! Pathetic.

As others have said, lone gamers are far from a dying breed. I prefer to play alone but occasionally get into a group.

@martinblank - Vince makes a valid point!

So sick of how many kids are allowed to run wild through car parks here.

the suspect, who cannot be named because he is a minor, said he just wanted to tell the girl how much he liked her, 

Japan really needs to stop referring to 19 year old men as minors. They weren't minors when put into torpedoes at 16!

Posted in: No. of newborns in Japan hits record low in 2018 See in context

My wife and I are about to have a baby, likely this month or early next.

The local city government is already harassing us with higher city taxes, health insurance and pension money!!

Having looked at our finances, we're now going to be in a position of slowly mounting back payments.

They want people to have more kids here, but ignore the fact that people don't have enough money to raise them and live comfortably!

It's typical J-government ignorance and stupidity!

No it's not, because if she was not able to distinguish right from wrong when she did it, she wouldn't be guilty of a crime.

Absolute rubbish!

Posted in: Mother arrested over attempted murder of 11-year-old son See in context

Or how about not jumping to conclusions and first letting them find out if this woman was in a state of delusion or not before pronouncing her guilty.

She smashed his head with a hammer and stabbed in the butt and stomach. Pretty safe to say that she is guilty as hell!

Posted in: Gov't council says pensions inadequate in aging society See in context

It therefore called on the public to take greater charge of their finances to plan for their retirement by proactively managing and investing their assets.

I've been doing this for the past 2 decades here, and telling the govt to proverbially shove their pension scheme up their rear ends!

It's a total scam, as is most of the financial system here. My ex wife lost her pension in the early 2000's along with 60+million others, after the government conveniently "lost" them. She was told to simply start again and forced to pay extra to "make up for the loss". Sadly, she refused to fight back and did just that.

This entire government is corrupt to the core and totally incompetent.
