Glad to hear all the passengers made it out safe.

Posted in: Over 40% of workers in Japan sleep less than 6 hours per night: survey See in context

But they make up for it by sleeping on the train and at work.

Posted in: China's Baidu says its upgraded AI bot rivals latest ChatGPT See in context

"China says....." Have you seen Chinese AI? It's a complete joke. Heck, Baidu itself is total garbage.

Posted in: Kishida cabinet's support rate falls to record low 32%: poll See in context

Isn't this the case for every LDP prime minister for the last 20+ years? But let's keep voting in these incompetent fools

Posted in: Japan issues heatstroke alerts as temperatures soar See in context

Took my son to Yomiuriland yesterday. It was brutally hot, but one thing I noticed with too many Japanese people there is they overdress. That can't be safe or comfortable in such heat.

Posted in: Japan considers raising truck speed limit for faster goods deliveries See in context

That's probably not the best idea. From my driving experience, truck drivers tend to be rather aggressive and sometimes reckless, especially on the expressways. Faster speeds will likely lead to more dangerous accidents

Posted in: 'Job-leaving agents' in Japan help people escape awkwardness of quitting See in context

Leaving one company for another isn't betraying the company - it's looking out for yourself and your family. If a company provided an environment where a person feels they are valued and compensated properly for their work, no one would be looking to leave in the first place.

Great! No one alive today will be around to see J-gov renege on that promise come 2115.

It's an internal matter - mind your own business, China.

I urge airlines to reduce their prices so people can actually afford to travel.

Hello pot, I'd like to introduce you to kettle.

Prices rise, wages remain the same while J-corp rakes in healthy profits.

Posted in: Japanese TV network makes multiple apologies for reporter chewing gum on air See in context

So people are offended she was chewing gum, but are okay with her dressing up with a childish rabbit cap.

Posted in: Kishida grilled in Diet over son's excursion during overseas trip See in context

He bought gifts for everyone in Kishida's inner circle (on our dime) so that makes everything ok. Corrupt as always.

Posted in: Company uses whale meat vending machines to promote sales in Japan See in context

"But whale meat is part of Japanese food culture and we can respect the lives of whales by appreciating their meat"

Whale meat hasn't been part of Japanese culture since WW2. If it was, we'd see it sold in every supermarket - but it's not. There is no justification to keep whaling at the rate Japan does when almost no one is eating it. As for the BS excuse of research, no research takes this long, year after year, with no real results.

Posted in: Activists fight Tokyo gov't over historic Jingu Stadium demolition See in context

Renovate or build new, I just want some decent size seats to be able to watch the game comfortably. Anyone who's been to Jingu, or any Japanese ballpark, knows how cramped those seats are.

Posted in: Japan to allow unlicensed electric scooter riding from July See in context

How is it that you don't need a license to ride these scooters? Don't they have license plates on them, meaning they are street vehicles? It's bad enough that many riding these don't follow traffic laws even with a driver's license, but now Japan will allow those who have no knowledge of traffic laws to get on these?

Grow up China, so childish.

Posted in: The Japanese government is offering families 1 million yen to relocate from Tokyo in an effort to revitalize towns across the country. Do you think this is a good idea? See in context

It will require a lot more than a million yen ($7500) to get people to move out of Tokyo. These people will need to find meaningful jobs, suitable housing, and a school(s) if they have kids. That money will be gone in no time.

Posted in: Japan to tighten COVID border controls for travelers from China See in context

For those claiming "anti-Chinese" China had very similar protocols in place for those wanting to visit China during their zero-covid policy (all vaccines and boosters required, negative Covid tests, plus 7 days quarantine). Was China being "anti-everyone" back then? They were just taking precautionary measures Japan is doing now.

Exactly what MarkX said. The senpai/kohai relationships in Japan can be problematic when sensitive information is involved.

Still amazed by how this con continues to work. My parents are in their 80s, but there is no way anyone could pass themselves off as me on the phone

Posted in: Do you think participation in extracurricular school activities in Japan is beneficial for students? See in context

Extracurricular activities in Japanese schools are too excessive. You'd think these kids were training for the Olympics for the amount of time they are required to spend on what should be character-building, fun activities.

Posted in: Panel wants Japanese public to pay more for defense buildup See in context

Talk about being out of touch with reality. There's nothing left to give - the govt has already taken whatever's left and wasted everything else. How about getting the money from j-corp? They've only been stealing from their workers for decades.

Posted in: Japan's fair trade watchdog launches probe into '1 yen' smartphones See in context

Welcome to 2022 Japan. The west has been selling mobile phones like this for years. It's the contract that makes these carriers money, not the phone unit.

For a country that likes to tell other nations to bugger off about their internal politics, China sure likes to add their 2 cents into other country's internal politics
