Posted in: Man gets 16 years for murder of 9-year-old stepson See in context

I wonder why does it matter whether or not it was premeditated? He permanently stole somebody's life that can never be returned. Each and everyone of us have to reap the consequences of our actions.

We went to a drug store this evening and saw them selling a box of 50 mask for 3200 Yen. A back before the pandemic those same boxes were selling for 500 Yen. How is that not price gouging?

Posted in: Law enacted to create 10-day holiday around 2019 imperial succession See in context

I wish I can get paid for that extended holiday. This is just going to hurt me and my family financially. The laws are pointless if it does make the black companies pay the employees for this forced time off.

Posted in: Lawyer: Nissan exec arrested with Ghosn asserts innocence See in context

Even if they are guilty, I don't understand why they are coming down on them so hard. Don't Japanese exec cheat on there taxes all the time here? It does not seem like it would be as big of a deal if the CEO and exec were Japanese. Remember the TEPCO scandal and the shady goverment land sell? Don't hear about that anymore.

Posted in: Gov't panel begins discussions to slash plastic waste See in context

The Japanese food companies seem to over-wrap everything. I need to open three layers of plastic just to get to my one little cookie. They should start with not over-wrapping everything.

All the Japanese government do is "urge". That's the problem.

Posted in: Japan household spending drops sharply See in context

How about the government enforcing the labor law and crack down on these "black companies". So many companies are forcing their employees to work service over-time. People cant spend if they do have money.

Posted in: Police find body of pilot in SDF chopper crash See in context

If that was a US military aircraft I think a lot of people would be freaking out and demanding their withdraw from Japan. However since it is a Japanese aircraft maybe those same people are just saying how sad and shoganai.
