Japan is a high-context culture, which is as close to hive-mind as actually exists in humans.

That may be so, but unfortunately feeling more in tune with others in your group, doesnt actually mean your have any additional experience or knowldge of other peoples relationships.

Posted in: The controversy over Abe's state funeral See in context

I read an article on the BBC that this funeral will cost more than the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II. That is an absolute joke. Even though I dont agree with the idea of monarchy, Queen Elizabeth achieved so much in her lifetime as a diplomat, and as you can probably tell from the queues of people waiting to pay their respects, was loved by the masses. Mr Abe represents everything wrong with politics in Japan. He was a crony through and through. This funeral is the icing on the cake.

So, great for you that you know "far more good fathers and husbands". But I would imagine that the women of Japan know a good bit more about what typical fathers and husbands are like to their wives in their own country

Why would you assume that? They arent all part of some hivemind.

This just tells me that women are starting to understand that there is little to no advantage for them to get married to a typical conservative male who expects his little wifey to stay home to cook and clean for him, and that men are beginning to expect that their wives work and contribute equally in terms of household income.

Yet we still see these surveys that show women are more interested in marrying into money than for love. There was an article about it the other day.

I guess you get what you deserve. You want to go for a rich guy, then prepare to become a member of his staff.

As a father of 6, i can tell you that over the years i have met far more good fathers and husbands than these mythical slavedrivers . . . Then again i guess they are too busy working to be around.

Posted in: Japanese household assets stand at ¥2,007 tril as of June See in context

As for those wealthy people though, they don’t have that much wealth. And they won’t be able to keep it.

Some may laugh at the idea of stashing huge amounts of cash under the mattress, but when it comes to avoiding Japans ridiculous inheritance tax...

I personally believe that these systems should be fundamentally reformed so that we don’t waste money on people who don’t need it. Alas though this would be seen as an evil neoliberal idea…

It's a tough situation for sure. Whilst many elderly probably struggled to save despite working hard throughout their lives, many others will have "squandered" their money on pachinko, designer handbags and hostess bars. The only way to monitor this kind of thing would be implementing some sort of CBDC (central bank digital currency), which could keep a record of all the money you earn (already pretty standard), but also keep track of exactly where you spend it (kind of scary). Then we start getting into the realm of punishing/defunding people who just wanted to enjoy their lives.

Or we could try working with each other. Just an idea. Im not suggesting we adopt the 0 COVID policy, just that friendships are better for diplomacy than hostility.

Downvote if you think hostility is better for diplomacy than friendships.

Posted in: Higher restaurant prices add to pressure on consumers in Japan See in context

It's not a given unalienable right that every business needs to thrive. Many restaurants may close, reflecting the decreasing population and shifting in demographics. But many will survive. Japanese cuisine is in no danger, if there isn't an izakaya on every corner.

I agree with you. It's survival of the fittest at the end of the day. Still a shame when those smaller stores that make great food go out of business though.

Posted in: Higher restaurant prices add to pressure on consumers in Japan See in context

Eating out in Japan is crazily cheap compared to other countries. The easy solution for the consumer is to just eat out less. Unfortunately many smaller restaurants will be forced to close, which is very sad. Those local, family-owned joints are what Japanese cuisine is all about.

Posted in: Hopes grow for win-win effect of inbound tourism in Japan, weak yen See in context

Seems to me this "line" has shifted quite a bit over the past few decades. When it was around 100 yen to the dollar, the same thing was said, then 110, then 120, and now as it sped downward to around 145.

I also seem to recall the same things were said when it was on it's way up as well. Starting at around 200 or so back in the day. Things got really "psychologically scary" when it dropped under 80 yen to the dollar too.

Whomever comes up with this "psychologically important line" should really just stop!

In FX (foreign exchange) trading these "lines" are called support & resistance levels, they are important indicators for people who buy and sell foreign currencies. Depending on how the market moves these "lines" may act as support or resistance, which can prevent further price movement to the downside, or upside respectively. There will be multiple support and resistance bands at different levels based on historical price action.

These indicators have proven a very reliable way to trade foreign currencies, commodities, and stocks.

What does abduction means in this case? Did the girl go willingly, but didnt have her parents permission which makes it abduction, or was she taken against her will, which is what i assumed abduction meant.

Im not condoning what the guy did at all, i think his behaviour is predatory.
