Don’t Japanese rail companies put on emergency buses or provide taxis for ticket holders in these situations as the train companies do in the UK?

Here in the countryside they do. Happened once to my friend.

Guys, it's not gonna happen.

It's just a game of cat and mouse between the IOC and Japan government.

Good on her, but with a week leader in the White House, unlikely to happen.

Sorry guys, don't put your hopes up. Easier to just forget about it and live your life.

Posted in: Japan finds luring businesses from Hong Kong may be tough See in context

The #1 thing that Japan could do to draw HK business would be to offer immediate permanent residence to HK nationals that agree to invest a certain amount.

That is if permanent residence has any credibility which as we now all know has no meaning at all.

The government shouldn't be involved in a business sector it supposedly regulates.

Shouldn't even be in business in the first place.

Posted in: Japan's top court backs lower pay for nonregular employees See in context

This is unfair. Most of the time there is no distinction between regular and non regular workers. It is unreasonable to imagine a situation where a Japanese non regular worker refusing to do a job they are assigned just because they are not regular workers. They are all the same set of cogs in the machine.

Posted in: Japan to ease COVID-19 entry curbs on foreigners with resident visas: NHK See in context

Yep too little too late, non-Japanese should know very clearly now that they will always be second class citizens. To be honest, you'd have to be a bit silly or desperate to stay in Japan after this!

Some unfortunately have no choice as they are too in deep with family ties. But as a current student, I have to be stupid to not look elsewhere to migrate. I really wanted to call this place home but now I've even stopped learning Japanese. I'm done.
