They are very different from what we are used to from normal American ready to eat establishments. There seems to be an attachment to quality that is almost always missing from corporate stores.

Gosh. You must have some real crap in corporate stores then!

If Covid doesn't get you, the radioactive water from Fukushima will. Forget about the Olympics, let's get this place cleaned up first.

The matcha may be real, but I'd lay a large bet that the "whipped cream" has very little to do with a cow. Combini "food" is terrible. I don't know how much this "sandwich" costs, but for your money, you're getting three strawberries cut in half, disgusting "bread" and highly dubious "cream."

My post above got four minuses as well as four pluses. Do I take it that there are people who actually like Asahi Dry?

Not really. It's the same in China.

Posted in: Here’s why Japanese supermarkets play 'cheap' background music all day, according to Twitter See in context

So why do they play three or four totally unrelated "songs" at the same time? Even in plush hotels, I've had dinner ruined by "Leaving on a jet plane" coming from one side of the room and the plink plonk of a koto from the other.

And at New Years, in the cheapo department store near where I work, we were treated for a whole week to some ultra trite song that started up as soon as it finished, over and over and over. It was the only thing they played. I still shudder when I recall the "jam" section.

Nice idea, but it would have been better if they had done something about the taste. Super dry is not a good beer.

Posted in: Kyoto Animation arsonist says which scene he feels copied his work and incited attack See in context

Don't forget that he suffers from a serious mental disease.

And don't forget that he caused massive destruction, including murder.

Labeling his condition doesn't lead to any cure. In fact all the mental health "experts" can do would be to drug him senseless and/or lock him away.

There's something weird about this. Either your city is in a state of emergency or it isn't. How come these cities are "seeking" a state of emergency?

Posted in: Prioritize athletes for vaccine so Tokyo Games can go ahead: IOC member See in context

Yesterday we had Kirin trying to stop the Tokyo lockdown because it would eat into their profits and now we have the IOC and their buddies, the US TV consortium putting profits before life.

Now is NOT the time for fun and games!

Do it when this crazy time is behind us and we have something to celebrate!

Don't know the answer to the question. But I do think that those in leadership positions should fullfil their job descriptions, observe and ACT!

They don't know the answer to the question, either!

Gosh, well that puts my mind at ease. Knowing we have thinkers like this at the helm, puts my mind at rest. We don't need to worry about a thing. We just leave it all to Japan's business leaders and they'll sort it out.

Posted in: Dumb Japanese school dress codes See in context

Making schoolchildren wear the same clothes, the same hair style, say the same things (ritual greetings) is all part of the plan to suppress the individual and individual thought.

What passes for education in Japan is mind control.
