Went up there a few years ago. There were six of us (a family) and the cost was something crazy like 40,000 yen or something. It’s something that you’ll do once in a lifetime and never again. Totally overrated in my opinion.

It’s now become a witch hunt after the previous three resignations. Look out any Japanese person connected with the olympics who’s made any inappropriate comments.

I did a lot of research before taking my toddler on a bike (in a child seat with a helmet). All the sources I found advised to wait until the child is at least one year old so they are old enough to cope with the bumps of being in a seat child.

Riding a bike whilst carrying a baby in a baby carrier is incredibly dangerous and something that I see quite often here in Japan. It is not recommended to carry a baby in a proper bicycle baby seat until they are at least one year old, so how can it be o.k to be carried on the back with no protection whatsoever? In my option, this should be made illegal if it is not already.

To set the record straight, I have no beef against that guy. It's the fact that he was justifying the racist old guy by suggesting that some foreigners cause trouble therefore it's o.k to discrimate against them. And what's more surprising is the number of people on this site who have the 'if you don't like it, then go home' attitude. Obviously they are happy being discriminated against and have no desire to improve the situation. Of course racism ( or bigotry) exists in all countries. What's even worse is people trying to excuse or justify it.

He is a Japan apologist - let's say a black person tried to use a toilet and was told "sorry, whites only", that would be classified as racism. However a Japanese telling a foreigner that he can't use the toilet "because foreigners cause trouble" is acceptable? It's time Japan woke up to the 21st century and foreigners who make excuses for racist behavior are no better than the racists themselves.
