..... ""seriously ill""....... and what is Japan's definition of seriously ill, compared with the US, for example? I have a feeling that there are many folks in the hospitals in Japan that might not be in the US........, but at the same time, others should be hospitalized!

Please boycott China. Anything to do with China. Consider where your purchases come from. Vote for, and advise your leaders to be careful of China. And when I say "China", mean the CCP. The people of China are being taken for a ride by their dictator! I have known many Chinese people and they are all wonderful folks.

Nope. This is not how you learn a language. This is not how you interest most foreigners in learning about Japan or learning Japanese. —- Finally, the spoken word here is said much too fast for beginners to pick-up new vocabulary.

Posted in: In the world of geopolitics, do you think of Japan as part of the West? See in context

No. Japanese thought processes are firmly linked to their past history. Their history is one of isolation and different ways of considering things. Painting with a broad brush here; —- Japanese folk do not directly face changes. One way you can see this is Japanese generally see no real need to speak English.

What I saw was smiles all around. Genuine interest and friendship. Haters gotta hate. Deranged. It is OK to have a disagreement or another opinion, but hatred and name calling belittles oneself.

..And it is not just peculiar words, but complete explanations that are incorrect. Things copied for one place that are not the same explanation in another place. — Needed to get some train tickets at JTB office, but there were no tickets at every office as the English explanation said. The correct JTB office was miles away and I was on foot.

I do not understand why people are puzzled over this, the type of forkball he throws is “famous” for putting a lot of stress on the elbow ligament. This forkball is very hard to hit, however almost no MLB players have thrown it due to the injury potential. Look it up.
