Most Japanese women want to marry a well-off guy and be a housewife. And Japanese society largely expects nothing more of women anyways.

It's too bad prison in Japan is safe and boring. He won't see real justice. In a US or UK jail, he'd receive some very swift justice from his new block friends.

This is such an easy decision to make.
1) Is the water radioactive or not? Yes or no?
If "Yes", can it be treated properly to make it safe? Yes? Then release it into the ocean.
If "No", leave it in storage.

"We will firmly try to help the Naka factory achieve swift restoration by helping it quickly acquire alternative manufacturing equipment,"
Even if you had not told me the original language of this quotation, I would have guessed "Japanese".

When VP Harris becomes President and screws most of middle America, the Republicans will easily be able to return to power at the next election. Only a few more years to wait.

Japanese beef is fatty garbage from cows that spend their entire lives standing up to their knees in their own manure. I would rather have beef from free-ranging cattle who aren't insanely obese and full of fat.

I think the pandemic has made lots of old foreigners in japan lose their obs and hit rock bottom on welfare due to being age over 45 or so.
All the foreigners I know who lost jobs or who had their wages cut back are in English teaching. Anyone aged over 30 teaching English in Japan is playing a very dangerous game if they think they can stick it out in the long run. I even know some guys who are the sole breadwinner in their family while working as an English teacher! There are a few truly good jobs, such as getting tenure at a university, but these are few and far between. After 30, eikaiwa companies and dispatch companies basically don't want you anymore, in favor of someone younger and fresh off the boat. Glad I was able to see the writing on the wall, thanks to seeing way too many 50 year old English teachers drinking heavily in the local "gaijin" bar night after night.

Can foreigners own guns here?
Yes. Have done for over ten years.

Happens every year. One reason why I refuse to go deer/boar hunting with my local hunting club here. Those old guys are way too shaky and trigger-happy. I only ever go alone or with non-Japanese friends who have proper gun experience.

I can count on one hand in two decades the number of Japanese girls who have been the one to suggest safe sex to me when getting down to it. This country must be rampant in STDs.

Japanese non-alcoholic beers gave gotten so much better in recent years. My favorite is the Asahi Dry Zero.

Curious if they had passed their annual external audit. Did they manage to hide this from them or did the auditors miss this?
Japanese companies don't have external audits of any meaning.

There is no effective corporate governance in Japanese companies. This is why I refuse to invest in them. Their P&Ls and balance sheets are pure trickery/outright lies.

Back home, if you continue kicking/punching someone once they are on the ground, you're very likely to get a beating yourself for not playing fair. Not here in Japan. I've seen people on the ground here trying to protect themselves as they continue to be kicked and punched; men and women.

If Japan has instigated a true state of emergency or "Lock Down", like in the UK, things wouldn't be so bad. Their version of a SoE was laughable; just "no bars after 8pm, okay?". What a farce!

You have to pay them, and deal with annoying things like health insurance.

Bitcoin is due for a huge correction, and when it happens, lots of people will lose a lot of money. Much like the idiots still holding their GME, despite having lost thousands.
