Posted in: 6 things I wish someone had told me about job hunting in Japan See in context

There's opportunities here,but it's not easy.If it were,every foreigner would be happy and doing what they want to do. Stay in your lane and in time,though it can be long,you'll find your niche and progress upward.

Posted in: The surprising truth about cheating on one's partner in Japan See in context

Japanese women aren't so hung up on their husband's cheating to the same degree as westerners, as long as he's not knocking anyone up or flaunting it that people they know know.My 50's student went to Hiromi Go's Xmas dinner show last month and he said the room just oozed of flings.Woulda been a laugh to see.

Posted in: 'Hostage justice?' Japan fights back with an internet FAQ See in context

The fact the justice ministry can't get anyone to speak in English explaining this fairytale,is proof positive they don't believe in what they're spouting.Hostage Justice is here to stay and Japan will actually double down on it from now on.

Posted in: Ghosn's aide Kelly stands high chance of acquittal: ex-prosecutor See in context

Oh really? We heard from Ghosn that the prosecutors run things and the judges are just their puppets so...? Plus with him bailing the country,they're gonna let Kelly off through lack of evidence? This ex-prosecutor was probably paid to come out spouting this tripe to change the negative narrative.Never say never apparently,but I'm saying Kelly will never get off.The best he can hope for is a suspended sentence.Then I can picture the so-called justice system trumpeting how fair the trial was and if Ghosn had stayed blah,blah,blah...

Posted in: Man arrested for leaving father’s ashes in toilet at Tokyo Station See in context

A toilet stall has got to be one of the most disgusting and disrespectful places to "dump" your father's ashes.

Coulda just flushed them whilst he was there,no? Clearly no love for his father either.

What a wife!

I'm sure she had a valid reason for feeling that type of way. I wouldn't want my father's ashes either.

It comes down to how fertile a woman is.There's no one size fits all there.That's why some women can get pregnant mid-late 40s and some 20s,30s often can't at all.

How could it not? A big shot CEO, that rescued a company from the brink,framed for illegal payments,escaping 400 days under jail and house arrest, in a box undetected,out of the country? Even I could direct that money maker.And even better,it's not a repeat or a sequel.It's original and new!!

Posted in: Lebanon issues travel ban for Ghosn See in context

Here's reality, I have been in Japan for over 17rs and as long as you do not break the law, no harm to you and even foreigners live in harmony. Don't break the laws that's it and all these feelings don't exist. If you do break the law, then pay the price. Everyone else in Japan does unless your super rich that is, in this case your ordinary...'

This afternoon's lol! Though this one is by a foreigner.

Is it a backdoor retaliation move by Iran then? Or being a Ukrainian plane,possibly Russian involvement too? One thing's clear.It resolves nothing.

Posted in: Ghosn puts Japan's justice system on trial See in context

What this has done is put into focus the medieval justice system,which is more about getting a conviction through nook or by forced confessions.Japan, sensitive and very protective of its reputation,cannot win the battle in the international court of public opinion, because there's no person of authority willing or able to launch a retort in English. For a country that harps on about internationalization,show and prove it then.Bleating to a passive,simple,homegrown audience is not enough.In this year of hosting the Olympics, it's not a good look.

how is it restrained 

By the mere fact Iran's response was really a token effort to de-escalate and at the same time show the people they were taking action.Yes,they can do all that you said,but the fact remains,they're not at war and for the uproar of the general's killing,I was surprised by that tepid response.Facts.
