I believe that a dozen cult members were executed for their crimes. Allow me to praise the Japanese justice system.

What does “dob in your mates” mean? Some sort of quaint regionalism?

Hikomain: if there are easier ways to make money, then go for it. A well maintained property that earns 6,000 bucks a year can be profitable. I own two such properties. You don’t.

Bad migraine: this article is about Japan, not fly-over country. If your money goes further in Nebraska, then buy in Nebraska.

Could the editors and /or moderators give a definitive answer as to what sort of bird and blossom we're talking about here.

One guy even said "That's not a blossom tree"!

Posted in: Visa guideline on health insurance deleted See in context

Too bad. The government should FORCE all FOREIGN residents to pay into the national health insurance system. Buying insurance from a foreign company deprives the gov. of money that it needs to build and maintain hospitals and pay medical professionals.

Centuries ago plum blossoms were the BIG DEAL in blossom viewing in Japan until some Shogun decided that he liked cherry blossoms better. The entire country folowed his lead and now no one bothers to look at the poor, neglected plum tree. So sad!

No. It could have been taken this year, SOUTH of Tokyo. Or do you assume that where you live is the DEFACTO standard for cherry blossom season?

Wake up people - it's a big world out there!

Not everyone lives near Steen and cherry blossoms do not blossom at the same time all over Japan or the World. I saw them earlier this year in OKINAWA - in February.

Wow. I get paid 600,000 yen a month for teaching English. I can't believe anyone would settle for less.

Prices HAVE dropped, WIBBLE. Look at property. Stuff is cheaper, too. Look at 100-yen shops and UNIQLO. Seriously, have you been here for 10 years?

The upside: 20,000 Eikaiwa teachers heading back to where they came from. Good-bye and good riddance!

Posted in: Hideo Nomo appears in TV commercials for air conditioners See in context

Nomo was initially reviled for "jumping" to the majors. His grandmother was shown on TV tut-tutting his 'betrayal'. THEN, when he began to win, all Japan praised him. Get your facts straight. And he ain't broke. He probably got a cool million bucks for that ad.
