Just had a brief look through the hundreds of comments - I'm a bit too busy to read them all. I'd like to comment on the last one in the thread - maxjapank. I agree too, as a resident of Japan I think that the 'If you don't like it - leave' argument is a little immature. And it's one I hear quite often here. I'd like to point out, as I always do, that this gaijin pays national tax and city tax and contributes to the local area via shops, restaurants and bars. I get involved in Japanese cultural things and can read and write Japanese to a pretty good level. I also fly back to Europe once every two years thus I have to consider flying options.
I've always thought that humour / humor is a good riposte. I'm sure 99.9% of Japanese don't read the comments on this site and so our voices will probably not be heard. And even if they did, how long would it before someone piped up 'If you don't like it...'
